Crushing: Rice husks in the North need to be crushed as it is harder than that in the Southern Places.

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

Cooling: The hot rice husk pellets are easily broken, so after the pellets out from the pellet mill, it should be taken them into the cooling system. 

Packing Machine: Pack rice husk pellets into bags. Thus they will be easily to storage and transport.
