The design of small pellet mill is based on the flat die type pellet mill structure. It is an ideal choice for making small scale of pellet production especially making pellets at home. In general, small pellet mill adopts double-stage driving system including belt, worm and gear. This type of small pellet mill is featured of steady operation, low noise and low risk of blocking problem. The spindle speed is about 60rpm and the roller speed is about 2.5m/s, which can effectively remove the gas in the materials and greatly increase the density of final wood pellets. Besides, low speed design can also reduce the running noise and the wear rate of pellet mill spare parts.
Die-Turned And Roller-Turned Small Pellet Mills
D type, literally is called rotating die type while R type is called rotating roller type. Mechanically, the prominent difference lies in motion pattern of die and roller, and transmission components. In terms of price, with the same configuration (capacity, power, etc), D type pellet mill is cheaper than R type because the latter has smarter design of pelletizing process and a better gearbox, though both types of pellet mill are competent of making quality pellets.
Instead of rotating die plate, the two rollers are running around the central driven by the main shaft and simultaneously rotating themselves, adding a positive force to the raw material. With the given dual action, not only is the raw material well pressed, but also mixed. Thanks to the sturdy shaft, it easily resists the harder counterforce produced by hard wood and material suchlike, making R type therefore a wider material application range.
As said above, both D type and R type pellet mills are qualified to make high quality pellets. GEMCO D type pellet mill is basically a standard version, it has a straight design and function to make quality biomass pellets from different material. D type is chosen by most starters. While R type is pro version pellet mill which has a smarter die and roller movement profile and is using a superb gearbox. Better function, higher price. R type is the right choice for clients who has a strict requirements and flexible budget.

Flat die type wood pellet machine is developed from original feed pellet mill. The pressure between the flat die and press roller is largely upgraded to meet the special characteristics of biomass and wood materials. The structure of flat die pellet machine can be divided into transmission parts and granulating (pelletizing) parts.
- Transmission Parts: motor, universal joint and gear box.
- Granulating Parts: large shaft and pelletizing chamber (pellet die, press roller and knife).
Working Principles of Small Pellet Mills(Flat Die Type)
On the process of small scale pelletizing, after the raw materials are fed into the pelletizing chamber, the die and roller will rotate and press the materials through the pellet die holes. Then, they will be made into cylindrical bar and be cut into uniformlength when discharging out of the pellet machine.
Application of small pellet mills: This small scale pellet mill can be used to pelletize various biomass materials, including sunflower husk, peanut shell, sawdust, cotton stalk, wheat straw and other forestry and agricultural wastes. This small pellet press is the ideal choice for individual uses to make wood pellets at home.
Advantages of Small Pellet Mills for Small Scale Pellet Production
Small pellet mills are designed with large press roller, which enhances the bearing ability and protects the bearing from high temperature. Besides, the thickening of roller makes it possible to do 2 or times repair, which largely prolong the service life, reduced the production cost and increase the profit of the pellet production.
- Small size and capacity, suitable for making small scale pellets at home or on farm;
- Simple structure design, easy to operate;
- High quality of flat die and press roller, long service life;
- Multiple choice of power: PTO (power taken off) type, gasoline engine, electric motor and diesel engine;
