Why Choose Rice Husks to Make Biomass Pellets?
Rice husk accounts for around 20% of paddy weight, and about 770 million tons husks are produced in Asia annually. However, most rice husks are discarded as wastes or burnt directly, not only polluting the environment, but easily resulting in fire. As one of the most common agricultural wastes, abundant rice husks can be good raw material for biomass pellets. When burning directly, rice husk pellets release less amount of ashes and emissions.
Rice Husk vs Rice Husk Pellets
|Material||Average Diameter||Ash Content||Average Density||Moisture Content||Calorific Value|
|Rice husk||2-3mm||15-16%||500kg/m3||About 12%||10-13kj/kg|
|Rice husk pellet||8-10mm||6-7%||1120kg/m3||10-12%||15-16kj/kg|
From the above data, we can know that it is an optimal choice to make rice husks into pellets. Moreover, rice husk pellets have other advantages as following:
Advantages of Rice Husk Pellets
* burn longer and cleaner
* combustion rate runs up to 25%
* density is greatly improved
* easier to be stored
Application of Rice Husk Pellet
* biomass power plant
* coal-fuel power plant
* industrial boiler
* home heating
* animal bedding
Rice Husk Pellets Processing Technology
The diameter of rice husk is about 2-3 mm, so they do not need to be crushed before pelletizing. In addition, the low moisture content of rice husk contributes to the pelletizing of rice husks.

SKLN2.5 Slide Valve Cooler Machine
After discharging from pellet mills, rice husk pellets may be 90 degree Celsius. The high temperature can not only result in cracking and breaking of pellets, but inconvenient to store and handle. Our cooler can manage this process effectively.
*Adopts counter-current cooling principle, avoiding the direct contact with cold air and hot-pellet, preventing pellet surface cracking.
*The latest octagon cooling cabinet design ensures no cooling blind angle.
*Closed air entering system, large inlet air area and obvious cooling effect.
*After cooling, the rice husk pellet temperature is not higher than room temperature 3-5℃, suitable for storage.
