Detailed Process Steps of Giant King Grass Pellet Production Line
Generally speaking, in order to get the fuel pellets from freshly harvested giant king grass, a series of procedures must be closely followed. The whole process of giant king grass pellet production line include raw materials crushing, drying, pelletizing, cooling and packing section.
Crushing——Giant King Grass Pellet Production Line
The giant king grass for making fuel pellet is 3-5m in height, so it must be crushed first by grass crusher. The grass needs to be crushed into small pieces with the size smaller than the hole diameter of the grass pellet machine ring die. Our grass crusher machine is no doubt a nice choice.
Drying——Giant King Grass Pellet Production Line
When pelletizing by grass pellet machine, the moisture really plays an important role. Too high or too low can affect the final pellet quality. The moisture of freshly harvest grass is approximately 70-75%, which needs to be lowered to around 10% by sun drying or the rotary drum dryer.
If you want to save your cost and have enough space, it is after collecting the materials that one is supposed to lay them in the sun for drying, while laying them in a thin layer after which pilling is done. Mow the grass and lay them in an open place. Keep the layer thin and let them dried by the sun and wind. Limit the moisture content to between 10% and 18%.
It is noted if your target product is feed pellet, in this process, you can add some other nutrients, such as herbages, sugar and proteins etc. depend on your requirement, and then mix them up with feed mixing machine.
Pelletizing——Giant King Grass Pellet Production Line
As the core procedure of Giant King Grass pellet production line, pelletizing directly influence the pellet quality. We have ring die pellet mill for your selection.

What's Giant King Grass?
Giant King Grass, also known as elephant grass, king grass, or bana grass, is a kind of fast-growing, high yield hybrid grass. It is mainly planted in tropical and subtropical regions with more than 100 days of sunshine per year, and more than 32 inches (800mm) of rain per year. It is a very versatile species that can be grown under a wide range of conditions and systems: dry or wet conditions, smallholder, or larger-scale agriculture. It does not compete with food crops. Giant King Grass is mainly grown in the United States, Virgin Islands, China, Pakistan, Thailand, Myanmar, and South Africa, etc.
Giant King Grass
Giant king grass is perennial and can be harvested 2-3 times per year. It is a short rotation crop, and it is harvested for pellets at 13-16 feet tall (4-5 m) every 150-180 days. In a tropical area with a 12-month growing season, it can produce a year-round supply at 167 tons per acre, which is much higher than other grasses. The high growth rate makes the Giant King Grass provide a continual supply of biomass year-round.
Grass pellets have been proven to be one of the hot sale fuel pellets. Compared to other traditional fuel resources, grass pellets production is generally cheap as well as very environmental friendly. The grass pellet making machine is not hazardous to the environment and thus it is seen as the best way to curb the current global warming problems as well as controlling the general climatic change.
