What to Do if My Biomass Pelletizer Is Jammed

Biomass pellet fuel is a highly efficient and clean renewable energy source. In many factories and enterprises, biomass pellet machines are used to treat biomass wastes such as sawdust, rice straw, rice hulls, and bark as raw materials for the production of bio-plasmids. This will not only protect the environment but also save a lot of money.

However, biomass pelletizers often encounter problems such as zero output. At this moment. The biomass pelletizer must be shut down in time to check the cause and avoid damage to the equipment. Some solutions are provided here for the inoperative biomass pelletizers.
Biomass Pelletizer Producing Pellets

Too Fast Feed Speed

The biomass pelletizer needs a uniform feed rate and the feed rate needs to match the pellet making plant's rated capacity. Either the feed rate is inconsistent or too large will lead to blockage of the feed port. If the feed is guaranteed to be too fast, first stop the feed belt and stop the feed hopper. Be careful not to stop the biomass pelletizer because once the biomass pelletizer is stopped, the hopper is full of material that can cause problems when the machine is turned on, so just stop feeding the machine. Then take the pellets, slowly add the mold hole to observe the production of the material. Wait until the die hole is fully opened before starting the feed. Remember to do this with correct and uniform speed. If this method does not work, you can only close, remove abrasives, and cast holes. However, be careful not to let the machine rotate by itself. This can cause damage to the machine.

Accumulated Material in the Biomass Pelletizer

If the biomass pelletizer is not cleaned after each use, due to the high temperature during the production process of the pelletizer and the large amount of steam, the material will remain hard in the machine and the solid will block the machine. The next time you start the production of biomass pelletizers, they will not be able to dry properly. If this is the case, clean the biomass pelletizer after it is shut down. After the internal accumulation of material is cleared, then can the biomass pelletizer start working. It is important to note that after each pellet production, the pelletizer must be emptied and cleaned to ensure that the machine can run smoothly the next time. Afterwards, the die holes should be filled with oil to ensure smooth production for the next time.

The Moisture Content of the material Is Too High

The reason that biomass pelletizers can produce pellets is that at the beginning of the pellet production process, after the dies and moving rollers have been subjected to oil grinding, the temperature between the rollers and the die will rise when the wet materials enter the granulation chamber due to the grinding rollers and The squeezing between the dies makes the material dry. However, as the amount of feed increases, this small amount of water evaporation becomes negligible, resulting in the production of wood chips in the granulation chamber and blocking the die holes and causing the feed to stop. Thus, the moisture content of the material is close to 20%. So you need a little dry, you can use a small dryer to dry them to the appropriate moisture content.
