Pellet Production Plant
Instalmec features almost two decades of experience in the design and construction of plants for Pellet production.
We offer custom-made solutions according to our clients’ requirements. Our turn-key plants are managed by a PLC which monitors the whole production process; Our innovative drying system for wooden particles is economical, ecological, flexible and guarantees a top quality pellet. Drying occurs at “low temperatures” (the maximum temperature is ~250°C). Thanks to the low temperatures the distillation of the resins in the wood is reduced and the resins remain within the pellet. As a result, INSTALMEC drying system maximizes the calorific value of the pellet and favours the “gluing” of the particles during the extrusion process. The result is a pellet with higher cohesion and higher market value. The Drying process starts in the Gravimetric separator, where the wood particles enter in contact with a flow of hot gases which separate pollutants from wood and at the same time pre-dry the wooden material. Then the drying process is completed in the drying duct - consisting in a special 150mt long pipe – where the wood particles are transported by the hot gases. Thanks to this modern system the resulting pellet has top quality and performance.
