Every equipment has a particular functioning life. It depends upon the wearing parts. In regards to pellet machines, the putting on parts include roller, die (ring die or level die), bearing, and gearbox, and so on the working life of a ring die is 800-1200 hours, a level die is 600-800 hrs, and a roller is around 1000 hours. The functioning life is figured out by the item top quality yet likewise influenced by your using behaviors. Correct use and also routine maintenance can lengthen the functioning life of a pellet device.
Feed the pellet machine with oil blend
Whenever when you finish pellet production, feed oil combinations (combined sawdust and also used oil) to the pellet equipment as well as let it operate for 1-2 mins, after that you can close down the device. Hereafter procedure, the die openings are filled with oil combination and also will not obtain blocked by the basic materials With this step, you can start making pellets directly the following time. It can not only save your time however likewise extend the working life of the pellet device.
However if you don’t use the pellet machine for over 1 month, you would certainly better obtain the oil mix in the die, or they would get hardened and also hard to clean up. This is bad for later usage.
Control the purity of basic materials.
Before beginning the equipment, ensure there is no contaminants in the feed receptacle. However do not place you hand into the hopper when the pellet machine is running. If there is unusual sound in the feed receptacle, you need to close down the machine and get rid of the contaminants, as well as begin it once more.
Make sure there is no rocks, metals, huge wood blocks in the raw materials. Problem allowing, set up a Tublar Magnet or a RCYB on the feed receptacle to stop steels entering into the pellet maker. Besides, you can make use of an automatic feeder to achieve uniform feeding, to make sure that the pellet manufacturing is extra smooth.
Control the wetness web content
Usually, the dampness material of resources should be 10% -18%. If the wetness material is too low, the raw products will be as well hard. They will certainly increase the power intake and also the abrasion of the pellet equipment. On the various other hand, resources with high moisture material are tough to grate, which will certainly raise the abrasion of the hammer mill. Besides, The pressing as well as rubbing in the pellet mill will heat up the raw products and also create the wetness to vaporize. The evaporated moisture will combine with the timber powders as well as block the openings on the die, thus reducing the pellet manufacturing.
Clean the components frequently
The pelletizing procedure will create a whole lot wood dirt, yet the pellet device are usually not geared up with dirt security device. This requires us to clean up the roller, die, major shaft as well as bearing on a regular basis. Clear up the sawdust in ports, voids and screw openings, or they may cause crack of the components.
If you don’t utilize the pellet machine for very long time, I advise you to dispatch the components and also clear up the pellets inside the die and also the sawdust attached to the mold and mildew surface, incase they end up being rigid and also hard to remove. Meanwhile, the sawdust will take in water and increase the corrosion of the parts.
Lube the roller, shafts and transmission
Prior to the first time use, include lube oil to the transmission, shafts and bearings. In everyday usage, you should lube the roller and also major shaft everyday, as well as lube the gearbox every a half year. If the roller is short of oil, it will cause damages to the bearing and also roller shaft, also damage down the pellet maker.
Pick appropriate size of die
The hole size of the die is from 2.5-10mm, and also the 4mm, 6mm as well as 8mm is one of the most prominent. The dimension of die is figured out by the basic materials. If the holes are undersized, the pellet yield will certainly be reduced and also no pellets coming out. At the same time, they will boost the stress between the roller and also die and also shorten the working life of the pellet device. So you require to consult the sales to choose a suitable die.
Adjust the clearance between the roller as well as die.
The roller and also die (level die or ring die) is the core part of the pellet device. Their clearance influence the pelletizing result and also the functioning life. The appropriate clearance is in between 0.1 mm and 0.3 mm. If the clearance is bigger than 0.3 mm, the raw material layer will certainly be too thick and decrease the pellet yield. If the clearance is much less than 0.1 mm, the abrasion of the roller and die will certainly boost, as well as influence the working life.
In level die pellet device, there are readjusting nuts on the 2 sides of the maker body. Tighten them up and also screw back for 15 ° -30 °. Keep both screws in well balanced placements. Then, you can secure the lock screws. In ring die pellet maker, see to it the clearance between each side of the roller and also the ring die is the same. Simply put, the roller as well as ring die must in the exact same axis, in instance the eccentric roller reason abrasion to the ring die.
Place the pellet machine in completely dry areas
To secure the pellet equipment from damp, we need to place the pellet equipment in a clean, dry and aerated setting. The steel parts are very easy to get rust under damp problem, and the electric motor will have shortcut or electric leak. These will shorten the working life of the pellet equipment.
