Pellets can be made from practically any biomass
material including straws, grasses, energy crops etc. The
physical characteristics of a die can determine its
performance through the blank and effective thickness, the
reliefs and the hole pattern. Perhaps the most important
physical characteristics of a die are the blank thickness and
the effective thickness. Every opportunity should be taken to
get maximum hole count in a die as it increases throughput
and die life.
In this paper will be done analysis of the existing die design
for straw pellets installed in pilot plant with nominal
production of 150 kg pellets/h. According to the results and
pellet mill properties will be propose a new die design for
increasing die life, pellet quality and decreasing operating
