The most popular pellet mill for home use is zlsp200b pellet mill which produces 80-120kg/h. There are 2 types of zlsp200b pellet mill: d-type and r-type.
D-type zlsp200b pellet mill for home use

It is a stable, reliable, efficient and economical model of pellet mill for home use.
The d-type zlsp200b pellet mill has a stationary roller and a rotating die. It adopts half-packed electric motor design to be compact and brief. The feeding hopper has large diameter, so the raw material is easy to fall down to the pelletizing chamber. By the extruding between the stationary roller and rotating die, the temperature inside the pelletizing chamber can reach 80°C. In consequence, the pellets have smooth surface and high hardness. The compression ratio and pore diameter of die is determined by the raw material. (Learn other models of d-type pellet mill here.)
R-type zlsp200b pellet mill for home use
The r-type zlsp200b pellet mill is most suitable to process hardwood, which includes Cypress, Elm tree, Hickory, Oak, Lignumvitae, Birch, etc. It has a stationary die and a rotating roller. If it is used to make wood pellets, it will perform much better than d-type pellet mill. But comparatively, it has higher price.
No binder is needed in making pellets. The pellet mill itself can generate high heat to the wood sawdust to soften the lignin inside the sawdust. The lignin melts and becomes good adhesive to sawdust. Because its roller rotates, the roller and die of this r-type pellet mill have larger contact area, so that it has higher forming rate and lower wearing rate, consequently the roller and die have longer service life (which can save your cost on spare parts!). Besides, the pellets made by it have uniform, better appearance and higher intensity than those made by d-type pellet mill.
Seen from above, we can come to a conclusion that, if you just make pellets to use at home, the D-TYPE zlsp200b suits you; if you want to make pellets for sale, R-TYPE zlsp200b pellet mill is your good choice.
