1. Parts and general information
LU АS- 2-1600 (EURO), mini plant, equipped with all necessary machine can operate using both dry and wet raw materials and is environmental-friendly
Purpose and productivity
The manufacturing line is intended for production of no less than 1600 tons of europellets Observance of process discipline provides the conformity to European standards
By the customer’s order we can produce hexagonal or octahedron Euro-pellets.
Crossing 50 mm, smoke-deflecting channel (diameter 15 mm), the length 450, 600, 750 mm, by the customer’s order.
Heat-emission of the pellets doesn’t depend on our machines, it totally depends on process discipline and raw materials’ characteristics. As a rule it is no less then 5000 kcal
Production technology doesn’t include adding of viscous additives to euro-pellets
The assembly of the line allows to increase its productivity by additional purchasing of some machines and their connection to the existing production cycle.
Annual production of 1600 tons of euro-pellets requires 2 000 -2200m3 of initial raw materials .
Raw materials consumption depends on moisture and dust contents
The water is removed by drying and raw materials lose up to 50% of its weight.
Transportation, drying and briquetting cause the dust burning out.
The losses are 15% and 3-4% at processing of peat and wood chips, respectively.
Bark, thin twigs, wood chips, saw dust, shavings, cotton stalks, corn, soy, canes, sun-flower stalks, hay, straw, cotton cake, cereal husk, sun-flower seed husks, etc serve as raw materials If you wish to use as raw materials the whole log wood, used furniture, the wood that remained after demolition and reconstruction of houses instead of agricultural and woodworking wastes, it will be necessary to complete the production line with two additional units. Mixing of two different organic substances (rice husks and natural sawdust, straw and corn stalks) doesn’t worsen the quality of Euro-pellets
Personnel and operation mode
Productivity of the equipment is considered for 16 hrs/day, 260 days/year.
One shift- 5 persons.
The duration of the shift – 8 hrs.
As the degree of automation is rather high, no considerable loading operations are required, the functions of the personnel are limited to control of the machine operations and collection of the spilled raw materials, so women can constitute up to 50% of the personnel.
According to design, it is necessary to have production facilities as follows.
Open ground – raw materials warehouse – 1000 m 2
Raw materials preparation shop – 20m х 10m = 200 m2
Raw materials drying shop -20m х 25m = 500m2
pellet forming, cooling and packing shop 25m х 10m = 250m2.
Warehouse 100 m2
Total: 1000 m2 of open ares
550 m2 Indoor rooms
Outdoor location (sheltered) of raw materials preparation equipment is possible

There is no demand in China for Europellets, they are in Europe (25 000 000), and the demand is forecast to double in 5 years.
The price (at the beginning of 2009) -130-140 Euro/ton.
They are widely used for house heating, food preparation. They are burned in individual boilers of cottages, some big power stations also use pellets.
In Europe 75% europellets are processes into charcoal or coke.
The sizes are adjustable, usual length is 500 mm, diameter 50 mm, smoke deflector is mm.
Moisture content of raw materials is 30-40%, for 1 ton of finished europellets 1,4 tons of raw materials is required.
