Advantages Of Multiple Small Milling Lines

Below are some reasons why many companies are looking into multiple modular systems over one large pellet operation.


MSW Pellet Production System

Cost

4 of our XXT units running together can produce 2-3 tonnes of high-quality pellets. Our systems need no steam injection, and we can combine automation to allow multiple units to be run by a minimum workforce. The systems already have the feed, conditioner, moisture injection, cooling, and screening mechanisms built in, so these items do not need to be purchased separately. The savings of going with multiple units can be substantially lower than the traditional ring mill die set up.

Shorter Down Time

Multiple systems running together eliminate downtime in production. For example, as one is being cleaned and maintained, the others are still producing (not the case with a single mill). Plus, if one of our systems malfunctions for whatever reason, production is still going on with the other systems. With a smaller unit, repair is often undertaken within an hour, with minimal labor effort, and with much less cost as spares are often on hand and inexpensive.


Electricity Cost

Our systems are some of the most efficient on the market. Four XXT mills running and producing 2+ tonne/hr draw approximately 100 kWh. That's more than half of what your average single 2+ tonne/hr ring mill die costs to operate. Additionally, our units feed, condition, clean, and cool the pellets all within that 100 kWh.

Multiple Lines

Companies often need to diversify today to stay ahead in business. With multiple units, it is possible to run separate lines of pellet production at the same time, creating a more stable business platform.

As your business grows, extra single units can be added to an existing multiple system line at a reduced cost. This allows your company to start with smaller costs initially and build your business at a realistic pace.
