About products and suppliers:

A pellet maker is a machine that converts loose raw materials such as rice hulls, wood chips, and straw with a binder and sometimes heat into pellets. Pellet mills are the opposite of grinding mills; instead of breaking down, they combine small products into regular-sized and shaped masses. Pellet mills for sale are crucial in large and small-scale manufacturing of animal feeds and fuel pellets. Buying a pellet mill thus can be a good venture if you have animals or want to supply fuel pellets to the market. The latter is more profitable considering the small investment you will put in raw materials.

Large-scale pellet mills

Large-scale pellet presses are huge and sometimes require months of planning before being assembled. Wholesalers rarely sell them as complete units but as independent parts which will be shipped to customers and assembled as per the instructions in the manual. You will find these pallet makers in two types; flat die and ring die mills. In flat die pellet-making machines, a powerful roller squeezes raw materials through holes on a flat disk. As pellets emerge through the other side, a knife cuts them at a predetermined size. The pros of a flat die pellet mill machine are compact, cheaper, and easy to clean. It also allows users to quickly adjust the size of pellets which may be useful in the customization of products such as fuel pellets.

In ring die pellet machines, a rotating roller distributes and presses a mass of raw material over the inner surface of a ring die. Pellets will be formed by being forced through the many holes in the ring die. Its advantages include less wear and tear because the roller and die are always moving in the same direction at the same speed, is energy efficient and the production capacity is high.

Small-scale pellet machines

Small-scale pellet machines use screws or hydraulic presses to force raw materials into a mold with an attached platen or ram. The platen may be heated to improve the shape of the pellets.
