The bagasse pellets are applied in many places because of its convenience and comfort, it has the following advantages:
Low cost of raw materials, small investment of the equipment, the operation is simple. The ordinary people after simple training can operate the equipment, the human labor cost is very low, coal prices fluctuate. These factors ensure better returns on investments.
Bagasse pellets are easy to use and store. It can be employed in heating, living stoves, hot water boilers, industrial boilers, biomass power plant and so on to replace firewood, coal, fuel oil, liquefied petroleum gas. The family unit is also applicable; the burning effect is good, which can meet the cooking, heating, bathing needs, especially the necessities for biomass power plant.
Bagasse pellets benefits the environment, bagasse pellets are carbon neutral, which means the emissions of CO2 produced by itself is absorbed by itself during growth. They do not release other air polluting gases into the air.
Different from fossil fuels such as coal and natural gas which is expendable (formed in a very long time), bagasse pellets are renewable, because sugarcane grows every year, and we can have endless supply of raw materials.
The price of coal, oil and gas are controlled by the government, With the more demand for energy and the less fossil fuels, no one can assure the stability of their prices. However, the cost of bagasse pellets can be controlled.
Under the background of the global shortage of energy, the bagasse pellets is a representative of turning “waste” into wealth, the sugarcanes were made full use of, in addition to this, also increases the income of farmers.
To generate enough heat to meet all the needs of a typical sugar factory or to make a profit by making pellets. In general, the production of bagasse pellets is divided into several steps:
Use a high-efficiency hammer mill to pulverize the raw materials into powder with a particle size of 3-5mm.
The moisture of fresh bagasse is about 48-50%, and it is necessary to ensure that the moisture of bagasse is dried to 10-15% to solidify the bagasse. The drying process requires a tumble dryer.
Bagasse powder materials are feed into the sugarcane bagasse pellet machine, they will be compressed into granules by the movement of the die and a set of rollers inside the mill.
Pellet cooler, this unit can save floor space and processing time. Cooling the pellets makes them easier to pack and transport.
After the granules are cooled, they are packaged by a packaging machine, which is convenient for storage and transportation.
