Whereas wood pellets from forestry residues already have successfully established technologies and markets, there is a need to develop the pelletization of agricultural biomass, such as cotton stalk, corn stalk, etc., which is periodically planted and harvested, and holds great energy potential, especially in rural areas. Cotton stalk pellet mill machine maker is a new type of biomass pellet machine with high efficiency and low consumption produced by richi machinery. Its raw materials are mainly cotton stalk, cotton stem, cotton husk other agricultural wastes with similar properties.
Cotton stalk is a by-product of cotton planting industry. It refers to cotton stalks from which branches and leaves and bolls are removed. It has a high degree of lignification, rich bast fiber, high bulk density and high calorific value. Cotton stalks are very good after being crushed and compressed.
The implementation of cotton straw mechanized harvesting and processing and recycling technology can increase labor productivity, reduce labor intensity of manual operations, and promote the process of agricultural modernization; at the same time, it will convert cotton production waste into high-quality raw material resources, turning costs into valuables, and reducing waste.
The destruction of the ecological environment will increase the added value and competitiveness of agricultural products, promote agricultural efficiency and rural economic development, and realize a virtuous cycle of agricultural production.
Approximately 80 countries worldwide produce cotton, the U.S., China, and India together provide over half the world's cotton. Other major producers are Uzbekistan, Pakistan, Brazil, Turkey, Australia, Turkmenistan, Greece, Syria and Egypt.
This statistic shows the world's leading cotton producing countries in crop year 2019/2020 (in 1,000 metric tons)
Cotton is grown mainly for its fibre or lint, which is the raw material in cotton textiles. But, there are other parts of the cotton plant like the stalks, husks, cottonseed and short-staple fibres, These can be used as raw materials for biomass pellets, which are made into pellets through a cotton stalk pellet machine. The finished stalk pellets after pelletizing can be used in feed processing, edible fungus cultivation, cotton stalk papermaking, cotton stalk board making, cotton stalk fuel, etc. It also can be applied to the low-temperature granulation of biological fertilizer, organic fertilizer, compound fertilizer and so on. At present, cotton straw pellets are mainly used as biomass fuel.
The solidification and utilization of cotton stalks means that cotton stalks are compressed under a certain pressure into a kind of pellet fuel that can be burned like coal. The combustion value of cotton stalk pellets is close to that of wood, which is better than other crop stalks.
Cotton stalk molding fuel can replace coal in many situations. Its volumetric calorific value is equivalent to median coal, and its combustion emissions are far less than coal. The net CO2 emissions are Zero, the fuel cost is close to that of coal. At present, as a fuel for industrial boilers and civilian boilers, it has a strong price advantage and environmental protection advantage in large and medium-sized cities that are gradually banning coal-fired boilers.
1. The cotton stalk pellet machine is widely used for pelletizing of light biomass substances, such as wood chips, sawdust, straw, husk, shells, pasture, chrysanthemum, palm leaf and so on;
2.The cotton stalk pellet mill feeder's especial structure makes materials conveyed evenly. It is specially designed for pelletizing of light substances with the density of 0.15-0.65g/cm3;
3. The feeder, conditioner and chute of cotton stalk pellet making machine are made of stainless steel with long service life;
4. The cotton stalk granulator machine is with magnet and over load protection system which can protect machine well during production;
5. The cotton stalk pellet forming machine makes gear directly-connecting as the driver and is with quick-release die fixed by clamps,which can increase the output by 15% more than the same type machine with belt-convey;
6. The bearings and oil seals in the main drivers are imported to ensure highly-efficient, stability and credibility.
The cotton stalk pellet press machine process: crushed cotton stalk material is fed evenly by the forced feeding device, the centrifugal force generated by the rotation of the ring die, and the action of the feeding scraper. The two pressing areas in the ring die are in the wedge-shaped space formed by the two press rollers and the ring die.
Under the strong squeezing action of the ring die and the press roller, the cotton stalk material is gradually compacted, squeezed into the die hole of the ring die and shaped in the die hole. Because the extrusion of the material between the die and the roller is continuous, the formed cotton stalk material is continuously discharged from the die hole in a columnar shape, and then cut into cotton stalk pellets of the required length by the cutter, and then enters the next process.

Biomass pelletizing process refers to converting biomass wastes such as cotton stalks into bio-fuel pellets, making it easier to put it into more useful use than before. Before cotton stalks are pelletized, it's important to consider the moisture content as well as the size of the stalks. The suitable size should be less than 6 millimeters and the proper moisture content to be 18%. Then, they can be compressed into fuel pellets by use of biomass cotton stalk pellet mill.
As the cotton stalk pellets leave the cotton stalk pelletizing equipment, they will be soft and hot hence, the cooling process takes place to make the pellets durable and strong. All the cooled pellets will then be passed through a vibrating screen to get rid of all fines from the pellets. After which the cotton pellets are then packaged to be put into desired uses such as Biomass fuel and among other uses.
The cotton stalk pellet machine we produce is a ring die pellet machine. Ring die pellet mill is specifically designed for large-scale production of industrial biomass pellets. This equipment is mainly for wide commercial use application as it produces a large capacity of 1~40ton/hour.
It adopts a feeding device that is imperative making it continuous and even in its feeding speed hence very effective. The other important feature of the device is that it can be used for pelletizing biomass materials of various kinds inclueding cotton stalk, maize straw, soybean stover, rice straw and so on.
