Sawdust Briquette Machine Introduction
Sawdust briquettes are made of all kinds of agro-wastes and forest
residues. If there are abundant biomass resource available, you can
consider starting a charcoal briquette plant. Charcoal briquettes
have wide application both in industrial and home use featured with
high density, small volume & good combustibility.
Raw Materials & Briquettes
The most common materials are coconut shell, sawdust, woodchips,
bamboo shavings, tree bark, chestnut shell, cotton stalk, sesame
stalk, corn stalk, sunflower stalk, soybean stalk, rice husk,
sugarcane bagasse, corncob, etc. The material diameter must be less
than 6mm and moisture is about 10%. The raw material piled density
is 60-350 kg/m³, while the briquettes piled density is
1100-1400kg/m³. We can easily draw a conclusion that the briquettes
density has greatly improved, so the combustion value also improves
30%-40%. After carbonization, the charcoal briquettes calorific
value is 7000-8500 kilocalories. The burning time is 200 min/kg and
carbon content is 75%-85%.
How to Make Wood Briquettes
1. Crushing the raw materials into size less than 5mm.
2. Dry the crushed materials to 8% -12%.
3. Pressing the raw material into briquette.
Biomass Briquetting Working principle
Briquetting is a process that biomass is compressed under high
pressure and high temperature. The self bonding of biomass to form
a briquette involves the thermo plastic flow of the biomass. The
lignin content that occurs naturally in biomass is liberated under
high pressure and temperature. Lignin serves as the glue in the
briquetting process, thus binding, compressing the biomass to form
into high density briquettes.
Wood Briquette Press Features
1. Wood briquette machine adopts oil-immersed alloy structure. The
screw impulsing axis adopts wear-resistant material and precisely
2. All types of our briquetting machines are featured with high
output, little energy consumption and compact structure.
What You Should do before Building a Wood Briquetting Plant
☆ The wood briquette plant should be built far from residential
☆ Power supply source is 380V.
☆ Abundant water resource is necessary for the in case fire.
☆ Make sure to have enough space to store the raw material and
☆ The most important is to make sure there are rich raw material
A small charcoal briquetting plant area is about 120㎡ -180㎡ with
simple construction. The charcoal briquetting machines use
three-phase power supply, so you’d better lay lines first. There
are two choices for the carbonization: Kiln Carbonization and
Carbonization Furnace. If you use the former method,
pre-construction of the kiln carbonization is needed.
