Examples

  • During pelleting the temperature of the meal rises by approximately 10°C, hence the final temperature of pellets from a conditioner pelleter is similar to that of pellets from a cold pelleter.

    Chapter 7

  • Generally, the quality of pellets (that is, resistance to break-down after pelleting and during handling) of a given mixture from a conditioner pelleter is marginally better than that from a cold pelleter, but the conditioner pelleter requires a boiler and associated water treatment plant to treat the feed water for the boiler.

    Chapter 7

  • In terms of energy requirements for a given output, the energy required for manufacturing half a tonne per hour of pellets in a cold pelleter is approximately equivalent to the sum of energy required to manufacture the same quantity of pellets in a conditioner pelleter plus the energy required to produce the steam for the conditioner.

    Chapter 7

  • In a ring die pelleter, the rollers or the die may be driven but in a plate die pelleter the rollers only are driven.

    Chapter 7

  • Practical experience shows that for a given pelleter motor size, the output of the pellets will be approximately doubled if meal is pre-conditioned prior to pelleting, or, conversely a cold pelleter of say 25 horse-power will produce only half the output of a conditioner pelleter of 25 horse-power if the energy required to raise the steam is not taken into account.

    Chapter 7

  • The die and rollers of a ring die pelleter may operate in a horizontal or vertical plane according to machine design.

    Chapter 7

  • Contamination by string, large pieces of metal, wood or stones which could cause extensive damage to machinery can normally be removed on a coarse metal grid fitted over the sack tipping-in point of the feed mill, and permanent magnets will normally remove any tramp ferrous metal which may enter the system, particularly before entering the grinder, mixer or pelleter.

    Chapter 7

  • After mixing for a pre-determined time, normally 10-15 minutes (although this time may be shorter in some mixes), the mixture is discharged into a bag or conveyed by auger or bucket elevator to a storage bin or pelleter.

    Chapter 7

  • But the extra poke should prove useful when towing or carrying a slug-pelleter.
