● Crushing: Suitable size is important to press pellets. The suitable size is 6-8mm.

● Drying: Peanut shell pellets production is very strict with the water content of raw material.

● Pelletizing: Pellet machine is the key equipment for the production. Vertical ring die wood pellet machine is the best choice.

● Cooling and screening: The hot peanut shell pellets are easily broken, so after the pellets out from the pellet mill, it should be taken them into the cooling system. Until the peanut shell pellets have the normal temperature can bag them and be put in storage.
