Why Use PKS Material to Make Biomass Pellets?

The main palm nut producing areas are Indonesia, Malaysia and other tropical countries. Palm kernel shells (or PKS) are the shell fractions left after the kernel has been removed after crushing in the Palm Oil mill. When made into PKS pellets, they can be a reliable biofuel resource with a lot of advantages:
▶ High calorific value: The calorific value of palm kernel shell can reach 4600 kilocalorie per kilogram. Besides, palm kernel shells contain residues of Palm Oil, which accounts for its slightly higher heating value than average lignocellulosic biomass.
Environment Friendly: PKS material contains no sulfur and phosphorus, thus no sulfur dioxide and phosphorus pentoxide created when burning; and it is totally zero air & environment pollution.
Low moisture and ash content: The moisture content is less than 8.4%, while ash content is less than 3%. The combustion is sufficient, more suitable for large boiler.

What can PKS Pellets be Used for?
★ Industrial-scale public and private heating
★ Co-firing in pulverized coal and fluidized bed energy plants
★ Biomass energy plants
★ Combined heat and power plants.

Equipment Related to Complete PKS Pellet Production Line
1. 900 type PKS crusher ( chip and grind PKS material into small powder for easy pelletizing)
Combines chipping and grinding in one machine, PKS material can be processed into powder with diameter less than 3mm one time. High efficiency and capacity, just one machine can satisfy large PKS pellets production demand
2. MZLH508 Ring Die Wood Pellet Mill (process PKS powder into quality PKS pellets)
A. The most suitable pellet mill for compressing high crude fiber biomass materials into good pellets, especially for PKS.
B. The ring die is made by international advanced technology, has long service life and ensure smoothly PKS pelletizing and high quality.
C. Special design of feed conditioner adopts the frequency-conversion speed regulating control to guarantee PKS pellets quality.
D. The international advanced compensation type flexible coupling is of novel and compact structure, safety, low noise and less trouble.

3. SKLN1.5 pellet cooler (cool down the PKS pellets to avoid accumulation of heat that may destroy pellets and be ready for packing )
A. The latest octagonal cooling box design is adopted so that there is no cooling dead angle.
B. Rotary feeder is adopted so that the inlet air area is large and the cooling effect is obvious.
4. Low energy consumption and easy and convenient operation.

5. DSC-5 sc1 pellet packing machine (weigh and pack the pellets into bags to facilitate pellet storage, transportation and marketing)
A. It has the advantage of high calculating precision, stable function, digital demonstration and easy operation.
B. Auto-adapted software has the function of controlling the parameter setup, the self-correcting of the fall height and fault self-diagnostics etc.

6. Electric Cabinet (control equipment and the whole PKS pellets production).
With the automatic electric cabinet, the PKS pellet production line is of high efficiency and convenient operation.
Note: Because the moisture content of PKS material is usually low, about 11%~17%, which is suitable for pelletizing, drying process is not included in this production line. At the same time, we can also customize rotary dryer according to your requirements.

We are specialized in manufacturing and offering various complete biomass pellet production plant. We have developed various kinds and types of pelletizing equipments by our engineers’ and workers’ hard working.
