CALL ON KAHL FOR HARD-TO-PELLET PRODUCTS
Kahl pelleting plants successfully compact organic products of various particle sizes, moisture contents, and bulk densities. The company’s pelleting presses are particularly useful for products that are difficult to pellet. For this reason, the Kahl pellet press is uniquely designed to pellet wood waste, shavings, chips, sawdust, and sanding dust. Its great variety of input products and the different plant sizes available allow Kahl to plan and calculate its plants according to customer requirements, with capacity and local conditions in mind. The company specializes in producing a high pellet quality, which equals a high bulk density. High bulk density provides better combustibility. Kahl offers consultation, assistance in obtaining approval, engineering, commissioning, installation, and after-sales service at the local level. It also supplies turnkey plants for most applications and tests products at its pilot plant and test facility.

Buhler  
Bühler’s RWPR-900.138 pelletizer offers conditioning and pelleting, with a motor of up to 450 hp.


 

BÜHLER BUILDS BIG AND SMALL
Bühler, a supplier of pelleting technology to the feed industry, has been active in the biomass pelleting business since 1996 and has built one of Europe’s largest facilities. In 2007, the company was awarded a contract to supply the grinding and pelleting section of the world’s largest wood pelleting plant, located in Florida and producing pellets since April 2008. The plant produces 500,000 tonnes/year (550,000 tons/year) of industrial wood pellets. The scope of equipment supply encompassed mechanical and electrical equipment, the electrical control system, and installation supervision. The company also builds smaller facilities starting from approximately 3.5 to 4 t/hour pelleting, depending on wood type and species.

Buhler specializes in engineering and supplying complete solutions for services and equipment after the wood yard, including the following features:  belt or drum dryer from Bühler-Aeroglide; sizing with the Vertical Hammer Mill DFZK, which operates without aspiration air; conditioning and pelleting with the Wood Pellet Mill RWPR-900.138 (up to 450-hp motor); cooling with a countercurrent or belt cooler; screening with an Oscillating Sieve DFTA or a Round Sieve DFTD; bagging or bulk out-loading; electrical control system, including MCC and PLC; and installation supervision and commissioning/startup for the mechanical and electrical equipment. Bühler sells whole plants, plant sections, and single machines.

Kerry-Die  
The Integrated Pellet System allows operators to quickly change the die without coming into contact with the die surface.


 

KERRY DIE’S INTEGRATED PELLET SYSTEM
The Integrated Wood Pellet System from Kerry Die makes the most of the properties of raw material in a processor/condenser unit before feeding it into a high-capacity press. The press combines high output with low energy consumption to produce wood fuel pellets. The company has designed a new wood pellet system:  the Calorific M6 Processor/Condenser and B-Mass 800 Wood Pellet System, available in both 6-TPH and 10-TPH sizes. The Chemical Analysis Electronic Meter measures the incoming raw material for precise properties. The Calorific 6M Processor & Condenser then activates these properties and removes excess moisture. The prepared material feeds into the high-capacity B-Mass 800 Pellet Press.

The external rolls and die speed are programmed and automatically adjustable to ensure maximum output and minimal energy consumption. The lack of contact between rolls and die ensures minimal wear on both elements, and the reduced rpm and processed raw material improves the life of key components. The simplified die clamping system allows the operator to avoid direct contact with the die surface while changing the die easily in about one hour.

La-Meccanica  
The durability of components such as bearings, dies, and rolls contributes to the long life expectancy of La Meccanica’s machinery.


 

LA MECCANICA IS AT HOME IN PELLETING INDUSTRY
La Meccanica’s 48 years of experience in the design and manufacturing of machines for the pelleting industry encompasses mills, dehydration plants, sugar refineries, oil mills, organic and mineral-organic fertilizer processing plants, the waste and recycling industry, and wood pellet plants. Currently expanding its North American market within the wood processing industry, La Meccanica’s machinery is specifically designed to withstand the rigours of producing wood pellets.

The durability of components such as bearings, dies, and rolls contributes to the long life expectancy of La Meccanica’s machinery.

It offers low operational costs attributed in part to the durability of its components, which can increase the machinery’s life expectancy by about three times compared to others currently in the market. By keeping the design and production processes in-house, La Meccanica maintains direct control in real time and the ability to treat requirements on a case-by-case basis.

Nova  
Nova’s range of pellet mills offers high pellet output combined with energy savings.


 

NOVA PELLETS SAVE ENERGY
AND ENVIRONMENT

Nova Pellet manufactures a complete range of machinery, from small- to medium- and large-scale pellet production. The company’s pellet mills combine patented technology, efficiency, and environmental friendliness. Among its patented technology are a servo drive and programmable logic controller (PLC) system. Nova has increased efficiency by minimizing the electrical kilowatts consumed for each kilogram per hour of pellets produced, which results in significant energy savings. These mills will produce pellets without any additives, from natural origin, so DIN Plus standards can be reached easily.

All machinery is developed to give low production costs and high-quality pellets to make owners competitive in both private and industrial markets. Nova Pellet also designs plant layouts and builds turnkey pellet plants, from chip reduction to pellet packaging.

P1014339  
 The SPC line includes this self-contained portable pellet mill seen at World Bioenergy in Sweden. 


 

Silvana TRADING and SPC OfFER Complete solutions
Silvana Trading specializes in small-scale pellet presses from Sweden Power Chippers (SPC) for production capacities of 1,000 to 15,000 tons/year of pellets.  It can supply either the presses alone or full turnkey installation.  SPC pellet mills offer fully automatic production with minimal supervision requirements.  Production can be increased easily by adding parallel lines.
Pellet presses range from the PP300 Kompakt that converts wood into 8 mm diameter pellets, with a capacity of up to 250-350 kg/hour, to the PP450 Kompakt that converts wood into 6 or 8 mm diameter pellets, with a capacity of up to 500 kg/hour.

Small-scale pellet production is advantageous when the costs of raw materials and transportation are low such as when using dry wood shavings and sawdust from an existing planer mill or similar facility.
