Sunflower Hull Pellets Machine for Making Solid Biofuel

Sunflower hulls are the by-product of the de-hulling of sunflower seeds before oil extraction. They can be burned as fuel to power sunflower oil mills but because sunflower hulls are light in weight and low in bulky density, they are not good for burning directly in boiler and stoves. However when converting sunflower hulls into fuel pellets by sunflower hull pellet machine, the sunflower oil mills can make the most of sunflower hulls as solid biofuel and at the same time reduce the energy cost by using these low cost sunflower hull pellets to substitute the high price coal.

Sunflower Hull Pellet Machine

Because the moisture content of sunflower hulls(9%) is suitable for making fuel pellets, it is unnecessary to dry them. Our rice husk pellet mill can processing the rice husks directly into pellets, without need to grind them. As rice husk a relatively low heating value, you can add some sawdust and mix them evenly before pelletizing, which can greatly improve calorific value of pellets.  Our rice husk pellet mill is small and light weight, easy to maintain, energy saving and environmental friendly; and it is can be driven by electric motor or diesel engine according to your need. Its mobility and low investment make it most suitable for sunflower oil mills to make solid fuel on the site.

Benefits of Sunflower Hull Pellets as Solid Biofuel for Oil Mills

Sunflower husk pellets made by small pellet mill are dark brown cylindrical pellets of 6-8 mm in diameter. They are of high calorific value and are effectively used for energy purposes.Energy concentration of sunflower hull pellets is similar to coal and is 1.6 times higher than of the wood pellets. Its calorific capacity is 4.3-4.5 kw/kg. Burning 1000 kg of sunflower hull pellets produces the same amount of energy as burning 685 liters of furnace oil, or 500 liters of diesel oil, or 479 cu m of natural gas, or 1600 kg of wood pellets. Sunflower hull pellets do not contribute to global warming.
