What material suits to make charcoal briquettes?
Almost all kinds of biomass material such as coconut shell, tree bars, sawdust, corn cob, rice husk, etc., are the basis to make charcoal briquette but they cannot be pressed directly by charcoal briquette machine.
There are two things you must do and prepare: one is burn or carbonize your material, the other is crush them into powder.
Then a charcoal briquette machine can press the powder into high quality briquettes that can burn for at least 3 hours long and actually this is 6 times more efficient compared to conventional firewood.
How does a charcoal briquette machine work? (with animation video)
When the machine starts, the carbonized charcoal powder is quantificationally added to the feeding hopper.
A worm screw supplies the mixture to press a roll a constant spray of water keeps the mixture from sticking to it. Then the press rolls compact the mixture into briquettes.
As the rollers continue rotating, powder materials are separated under the effect of elastic force and gravity; as the motor turns constantly, the compression rollers do the periodic rotating and ball forming movement, thus completing the volume production.
During the process, a screener shakes out fine material from the briquettes which is recycled back into the process.
The moisture content of final charcoal briquettes must be less than 5%, because the lower the moisture level the better it burns.

Sawdust briquette charcoal making in India
Sawdust counts for about 12% of new residues generated by saw mills, and it is`the fine wood particle chip during sawing process.
It is suitable primary raw material to produce briquette charcoals.Correct sawdust density is necessary to produce good-quality briquette charcoals.
General rules: composition of 70% medium density and 30% heavy density hardwood.
Then the sawdust is conveyed to the vibrating screener to remove impurities such as metal, barks, pebbles and plastics.
The clean and uniform-sized sawdust is channeled through a continuous dryer to achieve the final moisture content 3.7%-4.5%.
At last, put the dryed sawdust into the carbonizing furnace to get burned sawdust powder which is needed for final briquetting process.
Coconut shell charcoal briquettes making in Philippines
Turn coconut shell waste into a renewable and more sustainable ecofriendly coconut charcoal briquettes.
Coconut charcoal briquettes is odorless, smokeless compact and durable, it can withstand up to 10 drops without breaking.
Press bamboo waste into charcoal briquettes in South Africa
To fully utilize the bamboo, briquetting technology was generated that could help to produce more income.
Wastes from bamboo processing may be manufactured into charcoal briquettes, which could help reduce pressure on wood resource.
It is simple to press bamboo into charcoal briquettes. First, mix thoroughly the binder and the charcoal then mold into briquettes immediately.
The primary bamboo charcoal briquettes contain moisture, so you must dry them under the sun for 1-2 days.
Briquette vs charcoal
Lump charcoal and charcoal briquettes are both used in various applications.
Briquette are merely lump charcoal that's been ground up mixed with some binders and pressed into its briquette uniform shape.
Advantege of briquette is that because it's all uniform you get a much more controlled burn out of these charcoal briquettes. For example, it is consistent with how long it's gonna burn and what tempertature it's ganna burn at.
Lump charcoal has different thickness, and it cannot burn evenly, which leads to pop, crackle and a lot of smoke. And the other reason why people like charcoal briquettes is that it provides only heat without other odor taste. Besides, charcoal briquette is the best choice to barbecue.
Ball types of charcoal briquette machine
The mould whose material is 65Mn determines the shapes of the ball. As the main wearing part, the mould is assembled in combination and can be replaced after being worn.Besides, its hardness can reach more than 58 degrees after special heat treatment.
Common ball shapes are round, oval. It can also be customized according to the special needs of customers, such as square, goose-shaped, round, cylindrical, strip, pincushion, rectangle, heart shape and so on.
The smaller the ball press, the smaller the minimum size of the ball whose minimum forming size is 2-2.5 cm.
Various ball types produced by charcoal briquette machine
Applications of charcoal briquette machine
Charcoal briquette machine is used to reduce dust, control unit weight, recycle and improve transportation in industries like charcoal powder briquette, etc.
The applications of the machine includes coal powder, iron powder, coking coal, aluminum powder, iron filings, iron oxide scale, carbon powder, carbon powder, slag, gypsum, tailings, sludge, kaolin, activated carbon, coke and so on.
The materials after being molded by the ball press machine are energy saving, environmentally-friendly and easy to transport, greatly improving the utilization of waste with good economic and social benefits.
