Motion simulation analysis and experimental study of a ring mold pelletizer
Authors: Gao, W., L. Tabil, R. Zhao, Q. Liu
Description: In this paper, a three-dimensional model of a ring mold pelletizer was established based on the Pro/Engineer software, and the model was transferred into ADAMS software through Mech/Pro which is a dedicated interface software. The ADAMS software was used to run simulations. The analysis showed that the machine’s working state was good. Corn stover was used as material, for experimental manufacturing of fuel pellet using the ring mold pelletizer. A single-factor experiment was designed to analyze the effect of each experimental factor, namely, moisture content and material particle size on pellet durability by drop test. The test results showed that the durability of the fuel pellet made by the prototype machine was up to standard. Using virtual prototype technology to simulate the working state of the ring mold pellet pelletizer resulted in high accuracy.
