Pelleting Trial Conditioning temperatures

This trial measures the impact of conditioning temperature on pellet durability with and without binder. The results show that Ameri-Bond 2X and LignoBond DD are effective also at low conditioning temperatures.


Result
  • Increasing conditioning temperature improved pellet durability and reduced motor load.
  • Ameri-Bond 2X and LignoBond DD gave similar binding performances and were especially effective at lower conditioning temperatures when they were most needed.
  • Conditioning steam increased temperature by 13.9°C for each percentage of moisture that condensed into the meal.
