For 2T/H alfalfa pellet line, you had better choose a rotary dryer with specifications of Φ1.2(diameter)×10m(length). If your line productivity is less than 500kg/h, you can choose to dry the feedstock naturally in the sun.pellet making machine south africa
  2. Step 2: Grinding Section:
    There is a requirement about feedstock fineness for pelletizing, so after drying the material, grinding is necessary before pelletizing. You can choose a Grass Cruhser & Feed Hammer Mill to make the alfalfa into powder about Φ3-5mm.
