Conventional biomass pellet production (Fig. 12.4) includes an initial size reduction to a 2-in. particle, followed by drying to 1012% moisture content (wet basis) using a rotary drier. The dried biomass is then passed through a second-stage grinding process to reduce the particle size to less than 3/16-in., steam conditioned, and pelletized ( Tumuluru et al., 2010, 2011; Tumuluru, 2014 ).
The mill is equipped with a two similar boilers with a steam capacity of 13,600 kg steam/h each and consumed approximately 9,000 kg/h of fibre and shell as fuel. Table 1 presents characteristics of the biomass fired boiler of the mill and its operating conditions during
