In the event that you do not know much about pellet production and you want to start making money through this process the first thing that you need to do is learn as much as possible about all the machines that you are going to need. Contrary to what you might believe, you do not only need a pellet mill. Based on the raw material that you are going to use, there is also a big chance that you are going to need hammer mills.
Hammer mills are basically machines that are capable of taking wood chips and similar sized raw material and cutting it down in size. You are going to use it in order to have the proper size in the material that will eventually be put in the pellet mill. The pellet mill cannot cut down items in size and the only thing that it will do is create the pellets.
The good news is that you can avoid using hammer mills. The bad news is that this is only going to be possible in the event that you will use saw dust or similar material. If you do not use this and you are going to utilize wood chips, the hammer mills are always needed. In addition, keep in mind that if using logs, there is also the need to add a crusher to the pellet production line. Make sure that you always remember this when you calculate the needed amount to purchase all necessary machines.
