The ABCHansen MPEL Plate mill is a multipurpose pelleting press, that provides an excellent product at a reasonable price, both in capital cost and in maintenance.
The simplified plat die system is longer wearing and has a lower replacement cost than the ring die pellet mills common in South Africa. Operation and maintenance is also very simple with all the power being transferred from the motor via a single direct couple gearbox mounted in a cast iron housing.
The hopper feed is adjustable to prevent over feeding and blocking of the die, and the integrated into the mill shaft is a cutting mechanism for cutting pellets into similar lengths before exiting the machine.
The property outlet, as standard is for a bag off directly from the machine, but can be adjusted to feed into cleated or belt conveyors.
Steam treatment can also be added to produce a harder, more commercial pellet, should the need arise, but for on farm use, or where pellets aren't transported over long distances, the steam treatment usually isn't neccesary.
