FAQs

 

What's the size of the pellets?
Normally, the diameter is 6mm or 8mm are most popular world widely. Length 10-30mm. Pellets in size 2.5mm to 12mm are available with changeable matrix with different size.

 

What's the size of the Briquettes?
Diameter from 30mm to 90mm are available. But one machine only can get one size, the length are adjustable and it is quite easy. One machine can product different shape of briquettes like square, cylindrical and etc. But remember only one diameter for one machine.



Can I adjust the pressure  of the pellet press to mill different materials?
Yes there are screws on the pellet press that adjust to vary the pressure of the pressure wheel for different materials. There seems to be a "feel" you will need to develop to make good pellets.

 

What's the best moisture content and material size for KJ pellet press?
We suggest moisture content 15% and size less than 3mm in diameter. Of course it is not always right, please make more experiment with your own material as different material has different features.

 Can a Homeowner Really Make Their Own Wood Pellets?
YES! Many of our clients are home owners who want to learn how to make wood pellets or biomass pellets with a small pellet mill in their garage. Most initially purchase a pellet mill to make fuel for their own needs. They then realise they can produce far more than they need, and then sell the pellets to friends and family. Others then start small local wood pellet plants producing fuel pellets

 

How many pellets can I make per hour?
You will need to experiment, but the normal rule is 20 pounds per hour per HP. The first ten minutes will not make many pellets because the die has to heat up. Once it's hot the pellets start coming out, but LOTS depend on the material you are trying to pelletize.

 

What holds the pellets together?

When natural materials such as sawdust are compressed as in the pellet mill, the pressure plus the heat caused by the milling produces a natural substance called lignin. This makes the pellets hold together. However, depending on how dry the material is, additional moisture may have to be added as you make pellets. This may be as simple as spray the material with a little water, There are also all natural binders on the market that can be added to the material you're pelletizing.

 

How fast can you make delivery of the pellet press?
