Why make Briquettes?

Thus far, the wood and the coal were the cheapest and convenient raw material for acquiring energy and heating, but it has been replaced by natural gas and oil. Oil and natural gas are limited, expensive resources and harmful to the environment. The renewable energy is the current issue, it is necessary to optimize thermal energy production from alternative sources. Producing briquettes is One of the best solutions. The prices for traditional energy, in European countries, are increasing, as well as requirements for the processing of industrial waste. Production of fuel from biomass - into clean fuel - is very important. Private and municipal power utilities, universities and others are interested in using the fuel as a means to reduce emissions, efficiently utilize waste streams. The main advantage of briquettes production compared to traditional fuels is high degree of efficiency. Briquettes allow widespread use: energy central, home heating, fireplace and other purposes. Briquetting process consists of several stages: Stage 1 - crushing machine (shredder); Stage 2 - aerodynamic drying; Stage 3 - briquetting presses (mechanical) As the raw material for production of briquettes serves: bio-waste straw, sunflower husk, wood, paper, cardboard, and simply fallen leaves. Recycling of waste in order to produce briquettes is practical and convenient. Compact briquettes take up less space and allow your operation to reduce handling and transportation costs. Energetic efficiency of briquette is higher than unprocessed row material. Per unit volume -ex: 2 kg of briquettes emit as much energy as a liter of petrol, which is more expensive. Storage and exploitation of briquettes is more advantageous because of its high humidity content and low compared to unprocessed row material.

Mechanical Briquette Presses

Quality of equipment and business partners are the most important things in achievement maximum profits from the production of briquettes from waste. To start a successful business in briquetting industry you need a big desire to make money. Production of briquettes from waste is a good example. These kinds of businesses (briquetting industry) assess high profitability and it is based on the high quality of equipment which produces briquettes from waste. The most important rule of the company "Briquetting Technology" regards the high quality of the equipment and offers the best purchasing options. It is easier to start business having proper production facilities. We say “proper” implying quality, rather than quantity. The basic factor in the selection of equipment for the production of briquettes is: functionality, reliability and simple in use. The company "Briquetting Technology" offers its own equipment for fuel briquette production and possibility to develop various briquetting lines for recycling wood, straw and other waste. We bring briquetting solutions and we have machinery for briquetting of wood waste and other biomass products. For more information, or to learn about the briquetting process, call us at…. We return to our plan how to build your successful business. The raw materials are the next issue for you, the “builders of business”. Fuel briquettes are made from various types of straw and agricultural grasses, so there is a plenty to choose from. Wood waste ranging from leaves to tree trunks, sawdust and shavings, as well as peat, straw and cereal husks suit for this. Raw materials should be sufficiently dry (10-12-14% humidity) and small (optimal fraction of no more than 7 mm) in order to obtain a quality finished product. Otherwise, it is necessary drying and grinding. In choosing floor area, consider the number of pieces and size of fuel briquetting equipment. Do not forget about inventory. Approximately, you will need premises of not less than 120 square meters provided with electric network of 380 V/50 Hz and power up to 100 kW to locate a press, an aerodynamic dryer, straw and wood shredders, an utility room, a bathroom and an administration unit. And, of course, see about working staff.

Raw material: sawdust

The main sources of acquiring natural resources are forests. The most developed branch of industry is woodworking processes. Sawdust, the by-product of most woodworking processes, leaves manufacturers and facilities with fine particles of wood everywhere. Wood waste is often stored in the open air. Sawdust sometimes is burned in boilers, but still more profitable is woodworking processes (briquetting/pallet) of sawdust. Sawdust briquette machines are a time-, resource- and space-saving answer to sawdust problems in manufacturing facilities. With the growing market for briquette-based fuel, selling energy-efficient and carbon-neutral wood briquettes as a fuel source provides numerous benefits for companies, including: 1. Reducing need to store wood waste; 2. Removing airborne particles; 3. Eliminating costly disposal and landfill fees; 4. Generating a new revenue stream from briquette sales. What is more efficient, practical and cost-effective: production of briquettes or pellets? Let’s try to compare. Briquetting or pellet equipment? Sawdust pellets requires expensive and complex equipment. Maintaining and repairing cost of the equipment is also higher, and it is often sustained by manufacturer. Fractions of raw materials for Pallets of Sawdust- should be very small in some cases require additional grinding and various impurities are not allowed. At the same time, the size of raw materials for briquettes of sawdust- is not an obstacle in their production activity. Transportation and storage: Pellets are fragile products, for more loads may change their form and may crush. In contrast to the wood briquettes, the shape of finished product retains the same, also the crumbling briquettes don’t affect in burning. However, briquettes are covered with protecting crust and almost do not crumb while transshipments. Crumb does not affect combustion capability of briquettes. The cost of pellets is higher due to expensive equipment. Production labor should also be more qualified. Briquette production is cheaper due to less labor and energy intensity. The cost of equipment is mentioned above. The pellets, as a finished product, have a much narrower market to export, this is due of using specialized boilers. Briquette can be used to both: boilers and specialized in industrial or directly on fire. Acquiring bio-fuels by production briquettes / pellets generate high incomes. By using and produce bio- fuel resources, we hope that European States will provide financial support for producers and consumers of ecological fuel. At the same time, the environment will be saved. Production of Bio-briquettes can provide energy for homes and agro industrial enterprises as well. The company "Briquetting Technology" comes on European market with marketing offer of equipment for producing briquettes, delivery, installation, servicing.

Raw material: straw

Nowadays, we see a lot of people turning towards solar power, wind fuel and other alternative fuels, being less expensive, efficient and harmful for the planet. In the past, the wood and coal were the cheapest and convenient raw material for acquiring energy and heating, which currently were replaced by oil and gas. In contrast to the organic fuel, oil and natural gas are limited resources, more costly and harmful to the environment. Straw has long been differently applied in housekeeping: as insulation, bedding for cattle, sometimes as feed for cows, cover for houses and in brick manufacture… Currently all these methods of using straw are already outdated and no longer applied. With increasing of grain production, the waste management becomes a problem. Thereby, straw is an obstacle for soil cultivation after harvest. According to statistics, after the harvest and processing of rice, 1 tone of finished product has more than 1.5 tons of waste, for wheat approx. 2 tons of waste and maize - more than 6 tones. The problem has not been solved thus far. As a result, the straw was rotting in fields and thousands of hectares of farmland that remained after harvest straw were burned. On average, a kilogram of straw yields about 3 kW/h of energy. This means that from 3 kg of straw we get the same amount of energy as from a liter of diesel oil or a cubic meter of natural gas. Natural resources such as cereal straw, which are easily acquired after harvest or even purchased, will however be 5 times cheaper in terms of cost for energy consumption than traditional fuel. However, burning straw bales is not desirable or practice because of low efficiency of plants (straw is of low density and relatively high humidity) and inconvenience due to their large sizes. Therefore, briquetting straw is one of the most rational methods of using the Bio-Resources. Straw briquettes are more efficient at producing energy than wooden ones. From the scientific point of view, not only to dry cereal stalks can be attributed to straw, but also stalks of beans, flax, hemp and other plants free from leaves, inflorescence and seeds. Briquetting straw can serve as a universal fuel for heating homes, farms, and industrial objects. Briquetting straw allows us to solve the following problems: 1. preservation and storage of raw materials (under certain conditions briquettes can be stored almost during unlimited amount of time); 2. transportation; 3. automated load. Processing and recycling of waste for straw briquetting have not only broad prospects on local market, but also export potential. Supply of finished products (pellets) is much more profitable than sale of raw materials. Our company has created briquetting solutions and technologies, namely: mechanical briquetting press, dryer, shredder. At the same time, the company "Briquetting Technology" providing for: consultation, delivery, installation and servicing of briquetting machine.

Waste recycling

One of the main goals and approaches in the world is energy saving and optimal using resources, therefore increase interest in the exploitation of natural bio-resources. Sawdust, the by-product of most woodworking processes, and facilities with fine particles of wood everywhere. Wood waste is often stored in the open air. Wood-processing enterprises gather a huge amount of waste, which raises the question of its rational use and, therefore, leads to additional costs. Our company offers the option to recycle waste. In order to inform you, we will introduce you in recycling wood waste. It will take into consideration briquetting technology and equipment to produce briquettes. Our company is engaged in production of equipment for briquetting of wood waste. We will describe you the technological process of producing briquettes as well as utility of our equipment. Briquetting process consists of several stages: Stage 1 - crushing machine (shredder); Stage 2 - airflow drying (aerodynamic); Stage 3 - mechanical briquetting press An example of a raw: wood waste with natural moisture content. In this example, briquetting process is composed of the above listed stages. The first stage of briquetting process: Shredding. Shredding equipment consists of a disc crusher or a shredder (primary crushing), a chip metering hopper and a hammer crusher. In this example, we will consider a disk crusher. Large wood waste is delivered to the shredder RM 800.4. It is a stationary disk shredder designed for shredding wood waste: laths, slabs, etc. Shredder knives crush wood waste into chips ranging from 8 to 20 mm. From RM 800.4 chips fall into chip collection bin. Bin is designed for uniform feed of wood chips to the shredder RM 800.7. From collection bin wood chips get through a screw conveyor feed into the shredder RM 800.7, where chips are crushed by hammers mills into fraction of 1 to 10 mm. The second stage of briquetting process: Aerodynamic drying of sawdust. Chopped raw material gets from shredder RM 800.7 into a metering hopper of aerodynamic dryer DAD-0.6-1.2. Metering hopper of aerodynamic dryer is a welded construction with an integrated screw conveyor and an agitator and it serves as reservoir for raw material supplied to the dryer. From metering hopper crushed wood chips get through a screw feed into a dryer. Rapid flow of hot air in a dryer keeps raw material in suspension. Air in a dryer is heated by a heat generator operated on solid fuel. Heat generator is a welded construction in the form of furnace with a combustion chamber internally isolated by fire bricks, thermal flash suppressor and air plenum chamber. Since air flow rate is very high and materials are right in the flow, heat exchange between air and material is very high. In the process of drying, pure cold air is heated by heat generator and mixed with wet material whereby wet sawdust is dried in few seconds. Further, dry materials are run through a fan and cyclone, and exhaust air is discharged into atmosphere. The third and final stage of briquetting: Pressing by mechanical press. At this stage prepared material with particle size up to 7 mm and humidity of 12.8% gets in press metering hopper through a dryer steam separator. Metering hopper of briquetting press is a welded construction with an integrated screw conveyor and an agitator and is a reservoir for raw material. Then the raw material is distributed by the sleeve, which is located in the front part of the piston through carrying conveyors with horizontal and vertical movements. Its operating pressure is 1,400 kg/cm. Pressure-lubricating system ensures low wear of parts in the process of workloads. After being pressed, briquettes are pushed through removal mechanism (conveyor) which protects briquettes from premature mechanical action and provides access when necessary. Mechanism design also provides a visual control of briquetting process. Advantages of a mechanical press: a. No carbon monoxide during operation (no need to install exhaust system) b. No heating elements for forced heating of briquetting zone of a press (energy saving) c. ease of use; d. 1500 to 3000 nonstop operating hours without replacement of wearing parts (parts are replaced within 30 minutes) While developing a press our team paid special attention to such important requirements and particularities as: • Ease and reliability of operation and maintenance; • Maximum simple design of press units; • Availability of spare parts and components used in mechanical units of a press.
