Richi machinery cat litter pellet production line can be established for users according to different raw materials. Wood cat litter pellet Production Line, paper cat litter pellet Production Line, bentonite cat litter pellet Production Line, silica gel pellet cat litter Production Line, and tofu cat litter pellet Production Line.
Waste papers are abundant in schools, printing companies, market, and office buildings. Paper mill residues are another important source. These materials have different sizes and features, you need to sort them in groups for future processing.
You need a hammer mill to crush large size of waste papers into powder with the size of less than 6mm.
The moisture content of paper materials should be 12%-15%. Neither higher or lower are not acceptable. If the papers are too dry, it would cause static charge and make the pellets light and fluffy. In this regard, you can add certain amount of water to the pellet making machine when processing.
If the moisture content is over-high, you need to lower it by putting the powdery material in a rotary dryer or a pipeline dryer.
Making paper cat litter pellets
This is the core process of making paper pellets. Feed materials of proper size and moisture content into the paper pellet machine. They will get compressed and molded in the compression chamber and come out in the shape of cylinders. Usually, there are ring die pellet machine for large-scale production and flat die pellet machine for small-scale production.
The newly produced paper pellets has high temperature of 90 ℃. So you need a pellet cooler to lower the pellets to room temperature. Cooling can improve the stability and hardness of paper pellets. Also, you can put the paper pellets in open air for natural withering.
Use a sieve to remove the residual powders in the paper pellets. These powders can be re-pelletized together with the left materials.
Pellet packer is essential for large-scale paper pellet production. It can weigh and package the pellet products in bags. Package can protect the paper pellets from erosion of moisture and wind. Pellets can be stored in the closed silos.

C. Paper pellet cat litter are less easy to cake. Although some paper pellets can cake in use, it will become a mass of paste. However, the paper pellets would turn gray after wet by urines, which are easy to recognize and clear away.
2. Wood pellet cat litter
