How to Make High Quality Alfalfa Pellets?

When you want to make high quality alfalfa pellets, alfalfa pellets production line is necessary. Because it has a complete fertilizer machine, which can help you make high quality alfalfa pellets. So except alfalfa pellets mill, what machines can also help you produce alfalfa granules?

alfalfa pellets drying machine

Alfalfa material drying machine

The alfalfa for making pellets should have the moisture content of about 10%. For production lower than 500 kg/h, natural drying by the sun is enough. But for large scale production, you can use a rotary dryer in the alfalfa pellet production line. Because the hot air in the dryer will contact the alfalfa materials. Then it will transfer heat to the material through heat conduction, convection, radiation, etc. Therefore, the temperature of the material will continue to rise and the moisture will continue to volatilize.

Grinder for powdery alfalfa

If you want to make high quality alfalfa pellets, grinding is necessary. Because the finer the powder, the higher the quality of the final particles produced. For this, there are three crushers for your choice. New type vertical crusher, straw crusher and hammer mill. You can use them to process alfalfa materials into small sizes, usually Φ3-5mm.

Cooler for final alfalfa pellets

When alfalfa pellets leave the pellet mill, their temperatures can be as high as 85℃ and moisture contents are high as 17-18%. For proper storage and handling of the pellets, their moisture content must be reduced to 10-12% and their temperature to about 3-5 ℃ above atmospheric temperature. So you can choose SX rotary cooling machine for pellet production.

Alfalfa granules packaging equipment

For easy storage, you can pack the pellets into bags. And the common weight of each bag of pellets is 15kg , 30kg, 50kg. Our automatic pellet packing machine has a wide range of 5-100kg/bag.

The Working Principle of Alfalfa Pellet Mill for Sale

Significantly, in the process of alfalfa flat die pellet press machine, we can divide it into three parts mainly: break and separating part, transmission connection part and head working part.

(1)Break and separate part:

After you put into the alfalfa materials, they are pressed by the rollers. Then they’re going into the breaking device. You can separate the qualified pellets and the return material through this equipment.

(2)Transmission connection part:

hen the transmission connection parts are working, the electric motor will drive the pulley, V-belt, and reducer to rotate and granulate the fertilizer pellets. In addition, there is a transmission chain composed of sprocket and chain, which is the main motivation for driving the crushing and separate part. We also use the mutual work of the nylon pin coupling to drive the transmission reducer and the head working part.

(3)Head working part:

Then for the head working part, we use a pair of open wheels to ensure that the pair of rollers are synchronized. In addition, both sides of the active and passive shafts are composed of specific bearings and bearing frames, which installs on the frame.
