Product introduction

Hops are used primarily as a bittering, flavouring, and stability agent in beer, to which, in addition to bitterness, they impart floral, fruity, or citrus flavours and aromas. Therefore, what we see most is the use of hops in beer. Hop pelletizing equipment is indispensable for producing hop pellets, that is, hops pellet maker.

Hops pellet maker is base on hops as the main raw materials to making the biomass pellets. Also the pellet machine maker can pellet other materials into pellets, like corn stalk,wheat straw,rice straw,sawdust and so on after they are grinding. With the development of biomass pellet production, more and more Hops are available as raw materials for biomass pellet making. The hops pellet making machine is also more popular in biomass pellet production. Materials such as hops, hemp and straw are lighter, Richi Machinery new design industrial use hops pellet maker have added a forced feeding device to improve granulation efficiency and capacity.


Product advantages

  1. Forced feeding unit: since the raw material is fluffy, and the bulking value is higher, we equip the force feeding device.
  2. Simple structure and easy maintenance, unceasingly operation, widely applied and with small floor space.
  3. Special material with well anti-resistance, high strength and toughness application in core parts.
  4. advanced device and technological design insure the long service time of main components.
  5. Special molding angel makes smooth pellets discharge and small vibration.
  6. Pellet making unit: ring die and press roller inside work together to make the biomass grass raw material into grass pellet.
  7. Flat assembly structure. Materials fed from up feeding gate makes it easier to get into the compression chamber.
  8. Less manual, low energy consumption and high capacity.
  9. Super quality Siemens motor and high quality bearing ensure efficient, stable and reliable driving.
  10. Feeder: feeding grass raw material into the pellet making chamber.the feeder is made of stainless steel.
  11. Frequency control of feeding insures the even feeding.

Why Use Hops In Beer?

Hops are divided into two very general varieties: bittering and aroma. Bittering hops will have higher alpha acids, making them more economical for bittering beer (a small amount goes a long way). Aroma hops will tend to have more essential oils. It’s those highly volatile essential oils that contribute much of what people understand as “hoppiness.” We’re talking aromas like citrus, pine, mango, resin, melon, and more. By adding hops early in the brewing process, all of those essential oils volatize (boil away), either during the boil or during fermentation. That’s why adding them later in the brewing process tends to make a beer smell “hoppier.” Also, that volatility is the same reason why the aroma and flavor of heavily hopped beers don’t stand up as well to time. Much of the hop-forward aromas and flavors will dissipate, leaving quite a different beer than the brewer intended.

Advantages and Disadvantages of Hop Pellets


  1. Many more varietals available in hop pellets.
  2. Hop pellets oxidize slower and, ergo, have better storage potential.
  3. Hop pellets take up less space and are easier to store.
  4. Pellet hops are generally easier to split into abstract increments.
  5. Pellets are easier to add to carboys during dry-hopping.
  6. Hop pellets have a slightly higher utilization efficiency (10-15%)


  1. Hop pellets have a tendency to dissolve into a sludge in a liquid solution, and this can cause problems.
  2. If left un-bagged, the pellets tend to rise to the surface during the boil and form a layer on the rim of the kettle. This means they’re not being utilized.
  3. Some of the delicate aromatic compounds are lost during the pelletization process.
  4. Pellets can be more difficult to remove or separate from your wort/beer at various stages.
