In fact, we do not need to add any water in production if the moisture of raw materials in a certain range. The optimal range is between 8 to 15% for the raw materials moisture content. Just keep this in mind when running the pellet plant.
 
It is key to control the moisture content of the raw materials. Too day we have to add some water but please be sure to mixing very well. If too wet we have to dry the raw materials before pellet making.
