Miscanthus Pellet Machine

Model: MZLH

Capacity: 0.5 t/h - 100 t/h

Certification: CE & SGS & ISO

Final Pellet: 6-12mm

Product Description

Miscanthus commonly known as Elephant Grass, is a high yielding energy crop that grows over 3 metres tall, resembles bamboo and produces a crop every year without the need for replanting. The rapid growth, low mineral content, and high biomass yield of Miscanthus increasingly make it a favourite choice as a biofuel, outperforming maize (corn) and other alternatives.

Miscanthus/Elephant Grass Pellet Machine

Miscanthus pellet machine, also known as elephant grass pellet machine. All belong to ring die pellet machines. Miscanthus pellet machine can make miscanthus into biomass fuel pellets or feed pellets as needed. The 6-12mm pellets made by the ring die pellet machine are better for fuel.


1. RICHI miscanthus/elephant grass pellet machine, the support bar and main shaft are forged together, keep uniform gap between roller and ring die, ensure high efficiency.

2. Increased forced feeding device, output increases 10-12%.

3. Forged bearing, long durability.

4. Pneumatic fast discharging gate, avoid burning the motor or damage the equipment.

5. Add oil when starting up, user can set the adding oil volume and period according to the case, avoid wrong operation hurting the machine. Stainless steel gate, long durability.

Miscanthus/Elephant Grass Introduction

Miscanthus & Elephant Grass

1.Miscanthus/Elephant Grass Capacity:

One acre of Giant Miscanthus, yielding 13 tons of harvest-able dry matter, can produce the same amount of energy as 12 tons of Powder River Basin coal. Miscanthus x giganteus is a perennial grass that grows as tall as 12 feet high and can produce an impressive 15 tons of biomass per acre annually, according to University of Illinois research.

In the Republic of Ireland, the dry matter yields from miscanthus can be expected to be similar to those for the North of England and in the range of 12-15 tonnes dry matter per hectare per year.

2.Miscanthus/Elephant Grass Properties:

Property Description
Moisture content at harvest 20-50%
Bulk Density(baled) 130-150kg/m³
Bulk density at harvest(chopped) 70-100kg/m³
Calorific value(net) ~17Gj/tonne(dry basis)
Ash content Typically2-3%
Ash fusion(melting)temperature 1090℃
Temperature which some sintering observed 600℃

3.Miscanthus/Elephant Grass Uses

Firstly, Miscanthus can be used as animal bedding – production of horse bedding

Then, Miscanthus is considered to be a raw material for the paper industry, a source of fiber to be used in building materials.

And, Miscanthus is also widely used as a fiber material in geo-textiles. Its use as canes to support ornamental pot plants and the use of miscanthus ash arising from combustion processes as a fertilizer is also being done.

The most important one is miscanthus has 80-90% of the energy value of the initial biomass material and can be manufactured into pellets or briquettes used as a raw material for energy production and co-firing. Energy production alternatives that have been examined are co-combustion with coal and combustion in heating plants.

Benefits of Elephant Grass Pellet:

• natural, sustainable and eco-friendly

• superior absorbency and odor control

• create a soft, springy and non slip surface

• virtually dust free (made from 6mm fibers, not sawdust)

• easy to store and use (no watering required to activate)

• easy to dispose of (composts quickly)

• long lasting and cost effective (need 1 bag per week)

• carbon neutral in 1 year (wood requires 20 years +)
