The amount of pellets that can be produced from one ton of sawdust depends on the moisture content of the sawdust. The moisture content of the finished pellets is below 10%. The water consumed during the pellet process is mainly water, and the other losses are very small.
Before entering pellet mills, sawdust requires water content below 15%. Take 15% as an example. One ton of sawdust containing 15% moisture contains 0.15 tons of water. After pressing into pellets, it becomes 10%. Calculate about 5%. (Roughly calculated), 950kg left.
So a ton of dry (15% moisture) swdust out of 0.9 tons of pellet is no problem.
Of course, if your sawdust has 30% moisture, it will be less, and you will need to add a dryer to use it. The cost is also high, so the fact that you receive good ingredients is fundamental to making money.
Some customers have a lot of dust on the production site. In fact, this gray is really dust relative to hundreds of tons of raw materials.
