1.Coir pith/coconut shell fiber in Indonesia
Coconut is native to Southeast Asia, Indonesia to the Pacific Islands, and is an important economic crop in tropical regions. Indonesia straddles the equator and is known as the "country of a thousand islands". It has a typical tropical rain forest climate with high temperature and rain. It has marine alluvial soil and riparian alluvial soil suitable for coconut growth. Therefore, Indonesia is very suitable for processing biomass pellets such as coir pith pellets.
Coir pith pellets/coconut shell fiber pellets are made from the coconut's fibrous husk (known as coir) that is bound together by lignin (known as pith), by using a pellet machine. The resulting coir pith pellet is reduced in size by about 30%~60% over the same amount of coir pith in an uncompressed form, making it easier to transport than uncompressed coir.
The moisture content of coconut coir can be considerably difference. It depends on how long the coir has been sitting and the storage conditions. For example, the moisture content of fresh coir pith is around 45%. While it can be below 10% for the coir which has been sitting for an extended period of time in a dry climate. If the coir is too dry, it may have difficulty sticking together when making pellets. So, water or steam may be added.
Pelletizing process eliminates the disadvantages traditionally associate with coconut coir without appreciably increasing its cost!
The dust-like nature of coir pith limits the practicality of coconut coir for other uses. The dust can be tracked into other areas of the house by a cat. Likewise, the horses can kick up the dust and create dusty conditions in a barn. The pellets prevents the coir pith from being blown by the wind, or from being carried away by animals.
Various of coir pith pellets can be made based on the different requirements of the consumers. On investing coir pithbiomass pellet production, the following suggestions from successful 1-20tph ce good quality coir pith pellet making plant investors should be considered:
Overall understanding of coir pith pellet production line is necessary.Coir pith pellet production process should meet the requirement of target markets.
(1)Raw materials should be sufficient and should ensure the continuity of pellet production.
(2)Quality of the raw materials should guaranteed. Raw materials with moisture content of 15%, is ideal while when it goes upper than 15%, the raw materials should be dried.
(3)Location of the whole coir pith pellet plant 1-20t/h should be convenient for raw materials transportation.
(4)A feasible survey is necessary to be conducted beforehand.
(5)As for a typical coir pith pellet production, it should consisted of coir piths shredding, drying, grinding, pelletizing, cooling, sieving, dust recycling and packing.
There will be a little powder when making pellets from coconut shell fiber. It is suggested to add a small amount of oil to during the granulating process to reduce powder residue and improve pellets quality.
The pellets forming rate can be improved by reducing the mositure content appropriately.
Except biomass pellet making machine ring die size and water content, the compression ratio is also the key factory to make high quality coconut shell pellets. If you are interested in getting the detailed pelleting process with high quality equpments, feel free to send Richi Machinery inquiry!
Usually, in an entire biomass coir pith pellet production plant with 1-20t/h capacity,the following equipment are involved:
(1)Electric cabinet( to control equipment in the whole coir pith production line)
(2)Coir pith shredder(to get coir pith biomass into proper size for dryer)
(3)ce industrial rotary drum sawdust dryer(to get the moisture content ready for pelletizing）
(4)biomass material hammer mill ( to grind the proper sized and dried materials into power for pelletizing)
(6)pellet cooler( to cooler down the newly extruded hot pellets and hard the pellets)
(7)Automatic packing machine( to bag coir pith pellets according to requirements).
Good selling in Indonesia 1-20tph capacity completely coir pith pellet production line price is usually between 90000USD-3000000USD.
6.Application of Coconut Husk Pellets in Indonesia
The husk of the coconut is formed of long fibers (coir pith) and small, dust-like particles. The coir fibers are the main component. Coconut husk or shell is a natural by-product of coconuts processing industry. The coir fibers are used for making rope and fabrics…previously. In recent years, it has been discovered that coir pith has numerous other uses including soil supplement, animal litter, growth medium and fuel resource.
Before pelletizing, the coir pith could be mixed with some additives for different application. The additives might be fertilizer, binding agent, insecticide, weed killer, clay, seeds, or fire enhancer, etc. Pelletized coir pith is easy for transport and convenient to use.
(1)Coconut Husk Pellets as Soil Supplement in Indonesia
Coconut coir can be a valuable soil supplement which not only adds nutrients to the soil, but also helps to retain water for plants. By adding coconut coir pellets to the soil, the soil can be enhanced with additional nutrients, while improving moisture and aeration capacity. It is widely applied to enhance vegetable gardens, to promote reclamation of environmentally damaged sites, and to minimize the negative environmental effects of mining. Fertilizer additives can be added to the coir pith pellets. It could be natural fertilizes such as nitrogen mixtures, or chemical fertilizers such as steer manure and chicken manure.
(2)Coconut Husk Pellets as Animal Litter in Indonesia
Because of its exceptional properties as an absorbent, pelletized coconut coir has also been found to be a good choice as animal litter. It can absorb up to 9 times of its weight in liquid while minimizing odor. Besides, the pellets is also effective in absorbing printers ink, surplus or spilled paint, etc.
An odor controlling compound might be added as an additive in animal litter or bedding pellets. It could be conventional deodorants, zeolite, gypsum, fruit or fruit by-products. For example, citrus peels can be added to mask or absorb odors.
(3)Coconut Shell Pellets as Growth Medium in Indonesia
Coconut hull pellet is also known as a popular type of growth medium. Coco coir growth medium is a 100% biodegradable which is natural and safe for growers. By adding water, the coir pellets expand to a growing medium easy to work with.
Besides, seeds can also be added to the coir pellets. The coconut coir pellets can then be mixed with soil to serve as a growth medium for the seeds. In the alternative, the seed laden pellets can be applied to the top of soil. Thus, the seed laden coconut coir pellets can be used to plant flower gardens or lawns simply by spreading the pellets on the soil. Additionally, the seed laden coconut coir can be used in efforts to replant areas burned by fires, etc. Because of the coconut coir's ability to absorb and hold water, the coir can increase the ability of rapidly producing plants to minimize erosion, etc.
(4)Coconut Husk Pellets as Biomass Fuel in Indonesia
Sometimes, the coconut coir pellets are used to clean oil or other hydrocarbons, or as a retaining medium for used motor oil. Once collected, the oil impregnated coir can be incinerated, thereby providing a fuel source which can be used in pellet burning stove for heating, while eliminating the environmental problem of oil disposal. In this case, fire enhancer could be added to facilitate burning of the coconut coir after it has been used to absorb a fluid.
