SCHWAIGER PELLETS: Production
The production of pellets – exciting? No, it’s more …
Before the saw chips can be used for the production of pellets, they must be dried. We do that by using belt dryers with a length of 32 metres and a width of 6 metres, and at 85 degrees Celsius. Drying the layer of saw chips with a thickness of 8 centimetres takes us just 20 minutes time. We generate the necessary energy by means of our own biomass-driven heating and power station.
Via the silo for dry chips that has a capacity of 3,800 cubic metres, the chips are taken to the seven presses that have a production capacity of 28 tons per hour and that are used for the production of pellets of high-grade quality.
