The customer is the owner of woodworking plant who has set the task for the specialists of ICK Group to increase the productivity of the factory for pellets production.
According to customer’s words the main need for change was due to unsatisfactory operation of old pellet mills that were installed at the factory: only two of three pellet mills, at best, were constantly in operation, more often – one pellet mill, in happy moments of serviceability of all pellet mills – three, but no longer than 30 minutes, then one pellet mill always failed.
Therefore the diagnostics of the factory was performed and a proposal for the phased reaching by the factory of the required productivity, with its increase from 1.8 to 3 t/h, was given.
As a result of the first stage three old pellet mills were replaced for one GT-630D pellet mill of GRANTECH trade mark, and also control system for pelletizing station was installed.
The advantages of installed GT-630D pellet mill:
– Energy efficiency – 200 kW installed capacity instead of 270 kW;
– Reliability of GT-630D pellet mill operation;
– Economy – reduction of the cost for spare parts (dies, rollers, roller shells, etc.);
– Ease of maintenance.
The planned next step is re-equipment of the factory for slid biofuel production with following sections: raw material preparation and drying with capacity up to 4.5 t/h (wood crusher, GTSK-0,8/10 drying complex), pelletizing section of capacity up to 3 t/h and briquetting section of capacity up to 1 t/h.
