Briquetting Plants

Briquetting plants are able to compact wood sawdust and almost any fine biomass materials at <14% moisture into high density round briquettes 60mm or 90mm in diameter ideally suited for gasification and combustion with output from 0.5-0.75 to 3-4.5 ton per hour.

Briquetting plant consists of the following equipment:

  • One or two silo bins each 25 m3 in capacity with upper charge port, level switches, bottom rotating auger and from one to three discharge ports.
  • From one to three inclined metering screw conveyors with VFD connected to each silo bin discharge ports which feed the material into briquetting presses.
  • From one to three mechanical briquetting presses with specifications as shown in the table below connected each to metering screw conveyor.
  • Briquette cooling line connected to each briquetting press which deliver finished briquettes into briquette storage area.
