Working Principle Of Straw/Hemp/Hops/Husk Pellet Mill

The template and the pressure roller are made of high-quality alloy steel. After special treatment, the main axis of the straw hemp husk hops pelleting machine and the ring die drive the roller to rotate under the friction. It is discharged from the die hole, and the straw hemp husk hops pellet is sent out of the biomass pellet pressing machine through the throwing tray.

The length of the pellet hops/straw/hemp/husk can be controlled by adjusting the angle of the cutter. This straw hemp husk hops pelletizer is suitable for farms, feed mills, biomass pellet plant and individual professional pellet processors.

What's hops and hop pellets how to use?

Hops are an important raw material for brewing beer. It can impart a refreshing bitterness and unique aroma to beer, promote the clarification of beer and wort, and is conducive to beer foam, as a beer preservative. Therefore, hops are an indispensable substance for brewing beer. Among the chemical components of hops, the main components that play an important role in beer brewing are hop resin, hop oil and polyphenols.

Pellet hops made by hop pellet maker are based on hop pollen, adding certain additives to process the hop pollen into hop pellets. This can not only improve the utilization rate of hops, but also prevent the oxidation and loss of active ingredients in hops, achieving two goals with one stone. Therefore, granular hops are currently the most widely used hop products in the world.

How are hop pellets made in complete hops pellet production line/plant/factory?

In order to reduce the volume and facilitate transportation, hop pollen is processed into granules with a hops granulator after adding 20% ​​bentonite. The particle size is 2-8mm and the length is about 15mm. According to different processing methods, pellet hops can be divided into 90-type hops pellet, 75-type hops pellets, 45-type pellet hops and pre-isomerized pellet hops. The most common is 90 type hops 45 type hops (with 45% of debris removed).


Complete hop pellet production line for compressed hop bag

The process of pelletizing hops is a purely physical process, which requires uniform mixing, stable quality, and the granulation temperature controlled below 55°C.

Transport the compressed hop packets from the warehouse to the hops pellet plant, enter the hop packet breaking machine via a belt conveyor, break the compressed hop packets, and then transport the compressed hop packets to the mixer via the belt conveyor. After being fully mixed, they will be sent to the hop crusher by the belt conveyor.

After being crushed, the hops materials are quenched and tempered, and then enters the hop granulator machine to granulate. After cooling and screening, the finished hop granules are obtained. After vacuuming and nitrogen injection, they are packaged and stored in cold storage.

Complete hop pellet plant for fresh hops pelleting

How to pelletize hops? Hop pellets begin as leaf hops that have been hammer milled into a powder and then have been subsequently passed through a mould to create the hop pellet. Pellet hops concentrate fresh hops, and 1 pound produces only 10 to 12 ounces of dried pellets.

Although dry, they still contain the lupulin material that you will find in fresh hops to provide a slight bitterness to the wort. So how are hop pellets made? This information is useful if you plan on growing hops and you are unsure of what to do with your extra harvest.

The first step in making hop pellets is the drying process. After you harvest the fresh hops, they need to be dried to remove the excess moisture and preserve the lupulin. There are many ways to dry hops, and these include air drying, sun drying or mechanical drying through a hops dryer. When drying the hops, it is vital to have proper air circulation to encourage equal drying.

Once dried, a hops hammer mill is needed to crush the hops. The hop hammer mill crusher machine swallows the crushed leaves for further processing. The leaves should be broken but not too much such that they turn into powder. Once crushed, they can be turned into hop pellets using a hops pellet machine that includes both a ring die and roller so that the hops take on uniform sizes.

The hops are then cooled and dried before they are packed. When packing hop pellets, they must be kept in an airtight or vacuum container to avoid oxidation.

2nd Part: Straw pellet production and straw pellet machine for sale

The types of straw pellets include rice straw pellets, corn straw pellets, paddy straw pellets, wheat straw pellets, concord straw pellets, organic straw pellets, cereal straw pellets, barley straw pellets, etc.

What are straw pellets used for?

Straw is used as animal feed, biogas, biomass and biofuel.

  • As straw pellet fuel for boilers.
  • As straw pellet animal bedding.
  • Straw pellets for heating.
  • As straw pellet feed.

straw pellet making machine for sale
Straw is a product with high volume and low density. Although standard baling is performed, it cannot reach a sufficient density. It can be made into pellets by applying pressure with mechanical processes to increase the density.

The energy value of pellets is higher than the energy value of the raw materials they are made of.

Straw pellets made by straw pelletizing equipment are easy to pour and economical to transport for longer distances. Straw pellets have very similar properties to natural straw. No additives are used in the production - only mechanical pressing.

How to make straw pellets in complete straw pellet production line?

The followings are complete straw pellet production process:

  • Cutting section
    The process of cutting is necessary because the dimension of the raw material has to be reduced. The raw material could be in two parts: round or rectangular bales. The cut product can be transported with normal transportation systems. It could be dry or humid, in the first case it can go to the grinding section, in the second case the product has to be dried in order to have a suitable humidity to pellet.
  • Cleaning & Sieving
    During the cleaning and sieving process, foreign objects are removed from the raw material.
  • Drying section
    The humidity percentage of the wood must be reduced from approx 80-90% to not more than 12-13%. The machine could be a rotary drum drier or a belt drier and has a burner that can be alimented with oil, gasoline, gas or wood.
  • Grinding section
    After drying a refiner straw crusher hammer mill, complete with aspiration unit, reduces the dimensions of the product and prepares it for pelleting. The product is also cleared from any ferrous part.
  • Mixing section
    A mixing silo make the product homogeneous and in this silo the product can be stocked.wheat straw pellet machine
  • Pelleting section
    The material is entering in the straw pellet press passing through the conditioner. Here other ingredients could be added, before the material goes into the pellet pressure chamber to be transformed into pellets by the die. On the outside of the holes some knives cut the straw pellets at the desired length.
    Richi Machinery aims to minimize operating costs and maximize quality with the ring die series straw pellet machine, which has a long-lasting and more rigid structure, specially designed for straw pelleting.
  • Cooling section
    After pelleting by straw pellet press, the product is very hot, therefore it's necessary to cool the product at approximately +5°C in respect to the room temperature, in order give it the right hardness and the best consistence to store and handle it. The straw equipment in this section is a counter current cooler complete with air aspiration line the recovery of dust.
  • Screening section
    In this phase the product is cleaned from the dust, which is brought back into the production cycle.
  • Packing section
    The pelleted straw product is conveyed to the silo for storage before delivery. It can be delivered in bulk, loaded on trucks or packed in sacks or big-bag. The machines for packaging could be manual, semi-automatic or automatic, based on the requested production.
