Pellet mills

The mills will pelletize waste wood, switchgrass, straw, corn stalks and cobs, etc., into easily handled pellets. Available in four models, the low speed and high torque of the mills are able to grind hard commercial pellets such as shelled corn or commercial wood pellets. Unlike other models, the FarmTek mills main shaft spins a pair of rollers that push material through the die, rather than a spinning die, which results in more mechanical efficiency. Material used should have a moisture content of 10-20 percent to ensure proper binding. READER SERVICE NO. 46
