Daviwood energy wood pellet production process
With a closed process from purchasing raw materials to production, Daviwood Energy’s products make sure to give customers absolute satisfaction:
1. Purchasing raw materials
Dan – Viet Investment Company Limited selects and purchases raw materials from reputable supply partners, ensuring clean raw material origin, complying with international standards.
2. Crushing materials
Raw materials for manufacturing wood pellets after purchasing will be selected, divided and put into the mill. For the best compression of wood materials, wood materials must be less than or equal to 5mm, so for larger sized materials such as twigs or wood chips will be crushed Advance to the appropriate size. The material after grinding will take the form of sawdust with uniform sizes, ensuring that it will produce quality finished products, with the highest density.
3. Create the right moisture for the material
In the process of manufacturing wood pellets, moisture balance for raw materials is very important, directly affecting the quality of finished wood pellets. Raw materials that are too moist will make sure that the tablet is not at the same time, making it easy to get moldy during packing, transporting and waiting for use. And vice versa, too dry materials will make it difficult to bond and compress. The appropriate moisture content of wood pellet production materials usually ranges from 10-14%, however the input material after grinding is often high in moisture content of 18-35% so the moisture balance is necessary. Specifically in this step, the raw material after being crushed into sawdust will be put into the drying system to the appropriate moisture, then it will be transferred to the compression system to shape the product.
4. Forming wood pellets
This is the stage to help sawdust materials turn into solid wood pellets with high energy efficiency. Specifically, in this step, after the material has reached the proper moisture content, it will be put into the mouth of the compressor by conveyor. Conveyor system will be responsible for providing continuous and regular materials into the intake nozzle of the pellet compressor. Raw materials are introduced under modern technology in terms of speed and pressure that will be compressed into small and evenly sized wood pellets without any additives or chemical adhesives.
5. Reduce the temperature for wood pellets
Wood pellets after being compressed under high pressure and with very hot temperatures cannot be immediately packed but need to be pre-cooled. In this step, the conveyor will transport the wood pellet to the cooler and the machine will reduce the temperature of the tablet. After this step, the compact size tablets have been released and ready for use. However, for easier transport, wood pellets will be packed into suitable finished packages.
6. Packing finished wood pellets
After cooling step, the conveyor continues to put wood pellets into hopper of wood packaging machine and tablet which will be sealed with PE bags of 15-25 Kg / bag depending on customers’ requirements. After this step, the wood pellet finished product is ready to be shipped to the customer.
