How Biomass Pellet Lines Are Getting More And More Popular

Biomass pellets is a new type of renewable solid fuel that mainly used as a substitute of fossil fuels, such as coal. With years development of biomass pellet market, biomass pellet production becoming a blooming business for both industrial investors and small pellet makers. In order to make biomass pellets products, a complete biomass pellet line is necessary.

Different Types of Biomass Pellet Lines

There are different types of biomass pellet lines for different scale biomass pellet production.

For industrial biomass pellet production, there is industrial biomass pellet line includes wood crusher, wood chipper, hammer mill, pellet dryer, ring die pellet machine, pellet cooler, pellet package machine, etc. The biomass pellet plants use industrial biomass pellet lines to produce commercial biomass pellet and wood pellet to supply both industrial plants and residential users. This type of biomass pellet lines always maintain a capacity over 1ton/h, and if we connect several large pellet machine together, the capacity can reach 30ton/h.

For small scale biomass pellet production, there are two types of biomass pellet lines on the market.

Firstly, there is self-assembled small biomass pellet line with hammer mill, pellet dryer, flat die pellet mill, etc. In small biomass pellet line, all these machines has the same functions but smaller capacities compare to the machines in industrial biomass pellet line.

Secondly, there is mobile small biomass pellet line, which is a fully automatic all-in-one pellet production machine. Mobile small biomass pellet line is specially designed for small scale biomass pellet production, with a capacity of 250kg -450kg per hour. This type of biomass pellet line consists of hammer mill, raw material storage bin, small pellet mill, vibrating sieve, conveyor, etc. With the 100% automatic design, the mobile biomass pellet line can help save your labor cost. Moreover, mobile small pellet line have a small footprint, and all the pellet equipment have been fixed on the same base with wheels under it, so it can be moved and stored easily.

Why Biomass Pellet is More And More Popular?

The development of biomass pellet line benefits from the fast growing demands of biomass pellets. As a main substitute of fossil fuels, biomass pellets maintain the advantages of low carbon emission, good combustion performance, high density, easy transport, easy storage, etc. Therefore, biomass pellets have quickly grabbed the market, and more and more different industries start to use biomass pellets as their heating or power fuel.

Biomass Pellets for Industrial Plants

The development of biomass pellets is aimed to reduce carbon emissions of fossil fuels. In most industrial plants, coal is the main fuel of their boilers. With the development of biomass pellets, more and more coal fired industrial boilers turn into biomass pellet fired boilers or co-fired boilers. Therefore, biomass pellet demand grow fast.

Biomass Pellets for Thermal Power Plants

Despite of the industrial boilers, thermal power plants also use large quantity coal to create electric power. The carbon emission problem of thermal power plants also a serious environment pollution source. Right now, more and more thermal power plants turn their boilers into biomass pellet fired boilers, therefore, the demand of coal reduces, but the demand of biomass pellets increases quickly.

Biomass Pellets for Household Usage

Biomass pellet as a clean renewable fuel can not only used in industrial plants, but also used in each one’s home. In the suburban areas, central heating system is too difficult to reach everyone’s home. So, the people lived in suburban areas always built their own heating systems for their house. Before biomass pellets entered the market, people normally use coal or wood logs as the heating fuel. But as we all know, during the combustion of coal, it creates not only carbon emissions but also carbon monoxide which is a threaten to our lives. Although, wood logs are safer than coal, but the moisture content of wood logs is high, it need such a long time to dry naturally. If not, burning wet wood logs is very difficult and will create large amount of smoke.

Biomass pellet has high density, low moisture content and good combustion performance, which makes it a perfect fuel for our daily life. Biomass pellets can be used as the heating fuel for home heating system, cooking fuel and fuel for barbecue. With the increasing household biomass pellet market, there are a series of supporting equipment that use biomass pellets as the burning fuel, such as pellet stoves, pellet grills, etc.

Biomass Pellets for Pellet Stove Providers

Pellet stove is the newly developed home heating system use biomass pellet as the fuel. Many pellet stove providers provides complete pellet heating solutions. They will provide the biomass pellet fuel for the customers who bought their pellet stoves. In that way, there are two ways for them to get enough biomass pellets, first, buy biomass pellets from pellet wholesalers, second, they can produce biomass pellets for themselves.

As you can see, both industrial and residential biomass pellet demands grow fast, and more and more biomass pellet plants has established in recent years. Not only the industrial biomass pellet lines, with the increasing residential biomass pellets demands, more and more small scale biomass pellet lines will also receive a blooming period in suburban areas, as they can provides customized biomass pellet products for their clients.
