Title : Physical and mechanical properties of pellets made of pine tree sawdust with addition of deciduous tree sawdust
Key words : biomass, pellets, mechanical strength
Summary :

The paper presents results of physical and mechanical properties of pellets made of pine tree sawdust with addition of oak, ash, walnut and cherry tree sawdust. Average bulk density of the pelleted mixtures was within the range of 183.98 to 187.12kg·m-3. Mechanical strength depending on the composition of the pelleted mixtures of sawdust obtained values from 98.34 to 98.87%. The research that was carried out proved that more varied lengths were reported for pellets, which were produced in a pelleting machine with a matrix of 8 mm-diameter openings. Statistical analysis which was carried out did not prove any significant differences between the number of fractures and a diameter of pellets.
