A special field of application for KAHL flat die pellet mills are drying plants for green forage. The bulky chopped dried forage can be processed immediately into pellets or grass cobs. With the new KAHL pellet mill 55-1500, customers receive a flat die pellet mill specially designed for this field of application. Despite its larger die diameter of 1,500 mm, it consumes less energy per tonne than type 45-1250. Moreover, it delivers up to 50% more output while taking up the same floor space as the pellet mill 45-1250. One reason for this is the larger open perforated surface that increases along with the die diameter. The machine is also suitable for other biogenic fibrous products, such as maize, straw and brewer's grains.
The width of the pan grinder rollers with different geometries is 240 millimetres. The 5 rollers ensure a high degree of roll over, which in turn increases the efficiency. Roll diameters of 450 mm and 550 mm are possible. Different bore diameters ranging from 6 mm to 18 mm do not pose a problem. Furthermore, the characteristic shearing effect of the KAHL flat die pellet mill could be further improved in the new type. Due to these and many other features, the 55-1500 pellet mill is ideal for use in the green forage processing industry. It is efficient, powerful, reliable, sturdy and easy to maintain. The new machine type is available with 250 kW and 315 kW motors. Since the footprint of the press 55-1500 is identical to that of the pellet mill 45-1250, it can be easily integrated into existing plants.
Pelleting of high-fibre grass and alfalfa makes stable storage and economical transport possible. The pelleting process reduces the volume of the green forage and enables dry storage over a longer period of time. This process causes the least loss of nutrients of all known preservation methods. In addition, pelleting enables feeding with a high content of protein. Cobs are already an important protein component for organic farms. For quite some time there is a trend to use the KAHL flat die pelleting presses for grass cobs, mainly for the production of special shapes in premium quality (cloverleaf, floral or square shapes etc.).
