What is a briquetting machine?

Briquetting machine is used to press powder materials into briquettes. It can make various valuable and waste materials into a new generation of green energy, and press powder metal materials into small briquettes for further transportation and smelting, or deal with tailings.

What material can briquetting machine process?

Briquetting machine applications

Briquetting machine applications

Industrial powder: coal powder, coking coal, powder carbon, slags, gypsum, sludge, kaolin, activated carbon, coke breeze, calcium carbonate.

Mineral powder: asphalt paste, bauxite powder, magnetite powder, hematite powder, manganese powder, mineral tailings.

Metallurgical powder: iron concentrate, aluminum concentrate, copper powder, zinc mineral powder, manganese mineral powder, gold concentrate powder, and other metallurgical wastes such as fly ash, sludge, sinter, scrap iron, steel slag, and silicon manganese ore powder, etc.

How do you make briquettes?

Briquetting process

Briquetting process

Step 1 Crushing: The materials are crushed into under the size of 8 mm, and the materials consisting of powder and particles are better to process.

Step 2 Drying: The material should be dried to that with the humidity of under 12%. The materials that are too wet or too dry are not processed easily.

Step 3 Mixing (optional): The suitable adhesive can be adopted according to the characteristics of materials to guarantee a good briquetting effect.

Step 4 Briquetting: The materials are consistently and uniformly sent into the briquette machine for pressing.

How does the briquetting machine work?

The briquetting machine is driven by the motor and reducer, and pass the pressure to the rollers. When the two rollers are rotating relatively, the materials are sent into the sockets in the rollers sequentially.

With the rotation of rollers, the pressure on the materials increases gradually. When the material rotates to the contact point of the two rollers, the pressure of the material reaches the peak.

Under the huge pressure, the materials are processed from powder to briquettes. With the pressure getting smaller, the materials are taken off from the rollers and sent to the product area.

Benefits can be brought from briquetting business

Benefits can be brought from briquetting business

Benefits can be brought from briquetting business

1. Higher combustion efficiency and more energy-saving

Due to the compactness of the briquetting product, its calorie is highly concentrated and it can generate more heat energy than other fuel of the same size.

Based on our years of experience and customers' feedback, charcoal briquette has a combustion efficiency of 40% higher than common charcoal.

2. Low dust emission and more environmental protection

With the development of manufacturing technologies and related fuel and energy standardization, the briquetting fuel is cleaner and has lower environmental pollution.

In the metallurgical industry, the briquetting process discharges less dust and is utilized more efficiently.

3. Wide raw material sources, low cost, and high profits

With the wide raw material sources, low price, easy usage, and stable quality, the briquette is worth expanding and application.

The materials such as charcoal, coal powder, charcoal powder, and coke powder can be compressed into briquettes and pellets for fuels used in household and industrial plants.

FAQ about briquetting machines

What are the requirements for briquettes production?

Generally, almost all materials can be pressed into briquettes. However, biomass materials need to be carbonized to get good performance before they are sent into the briquette equipment for further briquetting.

Besides, the particle size of the briquetting materials is preferably less than 8 mm and the humidity of materials should not exceed 12%.

How much is the briquette machine for sale?

The price of the briquette machine for sale depends on many factors, such as the raw materials of equipment, the capacity of the machine, the required density of briquetting products.

If you have the requirements about the machine and want to know the exact price of Fote briquette machine, please contact us without hesitation, Fote will give you the quotation immediately.

How to improve the briquetting strength of the machine?

The strength of the briquetting equipment is influenced by raw material processed and the quality of itself.

The particle size and humidity of material should meet the specification, and the feeding volume should be guaranteed.

The hydraulic system can be added to the briquetting machine to achieve a better briquetting effect.

What should be considered when building a briquetting plant?

① The briquetting plant should be built far away from residential areas, and at the same time, sufficient water resources should be guaranteed.

② Ensure that there is enough room to store raw materials and final products, and abundant raw materials nearby should be guaranteed.

③ When briquetting biomass raw materials, a carbonization device (kiln carbonization and carbonization furnace) must be built in advance. If the former kiln carbonization is used, its pre-construction is required.
