What is a pellet mill?

In order to produce pellets (animal feed pellets, sawdust pellets, biomass pellets), raw materials are processed inside a pellet mill or pelleting press. Inside the pellet mill the most important part for producing the formed pellets is the pellet die.

Inside the pellet mill is the pellet die, either a ring die or a flat die. The raw material is fed into the compression chamber, where pellet rolls press/roll the raw material through the small holes of the pellet die. Out of the outerside of the pellet dies come out the long strands of pellets, which are then cut by a knife to give the finished pellets out of the output chute.

Types of Pelleters

1. The first type of pellet mill is a standard pellet mill, most frequently used for the pelletizing and production of pelleted poultry feed and other animal feeds.

2. The second type of pellet mill is for the production of aquatic feeds - aquafeed. These include both fish feed and shrimpfeed. This type differs in having additioner conditioning tubes.

3. The third type of pellet mill is one that utilizes a flat die. This type of pellet mill is used to produce both feeds and wood pellets.

4. The fourth type of pellet mill is a biomass pellet mill. It is a heavy duty pellet mill used for the pelleting of waste, wood, and other biomass.
