Specifications for AZSPLM120D Small Flat Die Pellet Mill 

   Flat die Dia.(mm) 
  Wood pellets 40-60 kg/h

AZSPLM120D is a small pellet mill driven by diesel engine. It is mainly consisted of feeder, flat die, roller, gear bearings and diesel engine. It is generally used for pellet making in small scale, like at home or on farm. This small pellet machine can process various materials into fuel pellets and feed pellets. It is in small size and with compact structure, making it preferred by farmers and home users.

Spotlights of small flat die pellet machine for home use
1. It is in small size and with compact structure.
2. It is at relative lower price.
3. It is suitable for home use or farm use.
4. It can be operated and maintained easily.
5. It is driven by diesel engine, making pellets production possible especially in places where electricity is not easily available.

How to make pellets by small pellet mill

pellet production principle


1. Suitable raw materials for pelletizing:
For fuel pellets making----dead leaves, sawdust, straw or dry grass around your home or farm for biomass pellet making; (Note: If materials are large blocks such as wood chips, twigs or branches, they need to be crushed by a crusher or hammer mill before pelletizing.)
For feed pellets making----maize,grass, wheat bran, rice hull,corn and etc.
2. Moisture content adjusting:
The desired moisture content for making biomass pellet is 12%-15%; while for feed pelleting, raw material should be with a moisture of 13%-18%.
You can dry raw materials in the sun to get suitable water content. If the raw materials are with too much moisture, a dryer is needed. Otherwise, the biomass will block the pellet die holes and cause low forming rate.
3. Pelleting:
Feed materials into the small pellet maker. By compression between the flat die and rollers, raw materials squeeze through holes on the pellet die. Then final pellets will fall out of the pellet mill.
4. Cooling:
Cool the pellets naturally and then pack them in bags for storage.

Attention on rollers and flat die

flat die and rollers

Material----Both the roller and die are the most significant parts of a pellet mill. Pelleting is completed mainly with the help of roller and die. So they must be wear resistant. We provide rollers and dies which are made of alloy metal. Also, if you desire pellets of different sizes, we have various dies for your choice.
Life span----Due to the abrasive nature and pressure of compression, rollers and flat die are damageable parts. Many buyers are very concerned about the service life of die and roller. In fact, the material of die and roller is a factor. But, the lifespan also depends on how often you use it;  what kind of biomass you pelletize, and whether you operate and maintain the machine properly. Take sawdust pelletizing for example, constant operation for 4-8 hours per day for over 6 months will wear down the die and roller. Then you need to replace them. If the pelletized materials are softer biomass like grasses, leaves, the die and rollers can last over one year.
It is also noteworthy that the thickness of flat die will affect the quality of pellets. When the die is thicker, the pelletizing process will be longer, the pellets will be denser, and the appearance of pellets will be smoother. And the life of die will be longer.

  • What's Application of Pellet Mill?

    Our pellet machine can make animal feed pellets, bedding pellets and home heating pellets. What¡¯s more, you need only one machine to make all these pellets. Widely used in animal husbandry, brewing, sugar, paper factory and other industries of organic waste granulation. The flat die pellet machine is preferred (biological) ideal equipment for organic fertilizer production enterprise.
