Title : Analysis of wheat straw pelleting process and the legitimacy of adding bran on the example of the selected production establishment
Key words : production of pellets, wheat straw, bran, pelleting process parameters
Summary :

Wheat straw pelleting process in the pellets producing establishment for the four combinations of the sieve meshes diameter in the mill 8 mm and 10 mm and the diameter of meshes in the matrix of a granulator 8 and 12 mm was analysed. The most advantageous process conditions were obtained for variant IV, i.e. a set of sieves in a mill with 8 mm diameter and 12 mm meshes of the granulator matrix when the highest performance of the granulator 1100 kg·h-1”,, the lowest current of 115 A and the best quality of pellets were obtained. It was reported that for those sets both the operation of the mill and the granulator was correct. The use of 10% added bran to the pelleting process reduced the average current of the granulator by approximately 5%, significantly improved the quality of pellets, however, it was not economically justified, increasing the cost of pellets by 25.4%.
