    The following terms are often used to measure the efficiency and quality of pellet mill operation. Friction is the difference in temperature of the feed entering the pellet mill die and the pellet being discharged from the die. The difference reflects the mechanical energy required to produce a pellet.   Plant design situations may arise due to one or more of the following: • design and erection of a completely new plant • design and erection of an addition to the existing plant • the facility or plant operations and subsequent expansion restricted by a poor site, thereby necessitating the setting up of the plant at a new site.
