How does the Diesel Flat Die Pellet Press Work?

When the roller driven pellet mill is in operation, the flat die is totally stationary, while the rollers are rotating and revolving on its own shaft. Raw materials fall down from the hopper into the pelletizing chamber smoothly just because of gravity. The great force between rollers and flat die will press raw materials into the holes of a flat die to form biomass pellets. A sharp cutter on the other side of the flat die will immediately cut the exposed pellets into pre-setted length, then discharged outside.
