Smaller Pellet Mill Systems That Grow With Your Business!

Whether your an entrepreneur or an established business looking to value add to a waste stream - Lawson Mills turn key static and mobile pellet mills are the sensible approach to pelleting! - Many customers see the benefits of starting with one or two units then adding another line as they grow. Not only does this allow for less initial equipment cost, but our unique systems when linked together for greater production per hour run at half the power capacity of larger ring die mills! Plus the operator knows that if one mill is not running for maintenance etc. The others are still producing! Click HERE to see our multiple mill benefits.

The latest equipment is used in the manufacturing of our pellet mill equipment. See below for a video of the new CNC laser steel cutter in our European factory.

We've come a long way since our first prototype pellet mill!

Jan Novak took existing European technologies that have been around for decades and re-engineered them to produce a system that eliminates many of the older problems of pellet mills.

Our systems are hand built using only the best materials from North America & Europe we do not use or build any of our parts from inferior cheaper materials often found on imported Chinese mills.  We simply will not cut corners, we pride ourselves on our equipment and on our customer service.

What our systems include:

  • Our high quality engineered pellet mill with world class gear reducers and premium efficiency 3 phase motors.

  • Feed Hopper with anti bridge technology (gear driven) for smooth flowing of raw materials.

  • Conditioning arm with mixing system and liquid metering pumps.

  • Patented steam capture chamber (for fuel pellets) or steam release for cool press pellets for feed or hops.

  • Integrated fines removal and cooling systems.
  • Highest grade tool steel die and rollers.

  • Secondary hopper for blending multiple dry ingredients also available on each model.

  • Quality control panels for smooth and easy operation of all the system.

  • 1 Year warranty* 

*Does not include wear items (bearings, shafts, dies and roller heads etc). See our warranty page for details.

What makes Lawson Mills pellet mills unique?

we custom build pellet mills for your application

Our LM series of systems are designed to take the guess work out of making pellets. All of our 10 HP + systems include material storage hoppers with self feeding mechanisms and built in mixing paddles that prevent the bridging of materials. Also included are the fluid injectors for metering necessary fluid to the conditioning tube, cooling chambers and custom conveyors and pellet cleaning mechanisms that leave the finished product ready for storage. Our automatic central greasing systems  leave no doubt that your main bearings have been greased. On top of this our award winning pellet mills are of the highest quality offering high pressure systems for one of the most dense pellets on the market (over 46lbs/cubic ft for fuel pellets*). All our components are made out of the highest grade Italian/French steel. From our 'Premium Efficient' grade Brook Crompton or Weg USA motors and QPS (C) ULC or CSA, CE control panels, world class Italian gearboxes, highest quality German dies and rollers and hand built casings and frames.

Cost of production...

we build bale processors for pelleting
Cost is important to manufacturers, and we have designed our systems to run at minimal operating costs for both wear items and power consumption. All of our motors and gear boxes have low service factor ratings, requiring little maintenance throughout their working life. The biggest of our systems (LMXXTS) operates at only 45 KWH that's about $4* an hour(on average) for the electric costs. Most pellets can be made for around $10* per ton when calculating parts such as grease and wear on dies and roller heads. One person can easily operate linked systems should greater volume be required. Due to the unique design of the system, binders that other systems require are often not needed (depending on ligning levels in your raw material).

Flexibility of our turnkey biomass pellet mills.

happy customers with feed pellets

Our systems are built with flexibility of use in mind. Make fuel pellets, feed, hops, fertilizer or animal bedding materials on the one unit, this system will handle all biomass materials at varying moisture levels. The operator can alter the pellet compression depending on the requirement for the finished product. Multiple products can be fed into one pellet, both dry and liquid components can be added automatically to make specialty feeds or fertilizers or blended fuels.  

There is simply no more flexible mid scale pelletizer on the market that will last as long as our industrial quality systems.
