New biomass Pellet Mill PM9950
At LIGNA 2023, (Booth F24 in Hall 26), CPM will unveil its Pellet Mill PM9950 concept model for the biomass production industry, designed specifically for high capacity and throughput at more than 10 tonnes per hour capacity on softwood.
According to CPM, the new mill can handle the toughest industrial applications, from processing softwoods like Spruce and Southern Yellow Pine (SYP) as well as other woods including a combination of wood species.
Pellet Mill PM9950 will come equipped with Oil Lubricated Rollers (OLR) which are designed to cope with high loads, extend
bearing life, and maximizing uptime.
The Pellet Mill PM9950 will be made available to customers in late 2024.
Patented Twin Track technology on show
A not to be missed feature is CPM’s patented Twin Track technology which can be seen on display at LIGNA for the first time by the biomass production industry.
Twin Track uses two rollers inside the pelleting die, each with its own track pushing pellets through the die with one long energy-efficient push per revolution using far less power than traditional two- or three-roll pellet mills.
Additionally, CPM has increased the hole count per die by up to 43 percent giving a wider pad on the die and thus increasing pellet production per die revolution.
Twin Track increases capacity by matching the electrical load used on a normal pellet die or meets capacity requirements using less electricity thus extending die and roller life and lowering cost per tonne while decreasing carbon footprint.
