Charcoal briquette machine refers to the equipment for compressing the charcoal powder or coal dust into different shape blocks. According to the different briquetting principles and briquette shapes, we divide them into 4 types, charcoal briquette extruder, pillow charcoal machine, shisha charcoal press machine, and honeycomb coal briquette machine.

Charcoal Briquettes Application

Charcoal briquettes are mainly used as solid fuel in both households and industries. You can see them used for roasting meat in BBQ grill, burning in the household stove for cooking, heating the industrial boiler in factories, etc. So it is a really good business for producing charcoal briquettes.

How to get charcoal/coal materials for briquetting

  1. Waste charcoal or coal dust. In the charcoal production plant or coal mine, there is a lot of waste charcoal/coal in small pieces and dust. These waste charcoals can be collected and used for making briquettes. It is not only a good way to get cheap materials for making briquettes, but also turn the waste into wealth, increase the level of resource utilization.
  2. Make charcoal from waste wood, branches, coconut shell, rice husk, bamboo, palm shell, etc. You need to build a charcoal kiln to produce charcoal or use the carbonization furnace for charring the biomass materials into charcoals.

Requirements of charcoal for making briquettes

  1. Size. The charcoal or coal size should be less than 5mm so that they can be easily pressed into briquettes.
  2. Moisture. The moisture of charcoal for briquetting is around 20%. Proper moisture is good for the briquettes forming and increasing the density of the charcoal briquettes.
  3. Biner. Usually, the binder is necessary for the charcoal briquettes processing. Binder can make the charcoal briquettes more solid and smooth. The most common binder we use is corn starch or cassava starch. The best binder adding rate is 4%-6%. There also some customers who add the combustion improver to accelerate the lighting speed of charcoal. No matter binder or ignite accelerating agent, you can use a charcoal mixer to blend the charcoal powder with water and additive evenly.

Charcoal Briquette Extruder Machine

Charcoal briquette extruder machine adopts spiral extrusion molding. It mainly includes the machine base, bearing seat, screw shaft, cylinder body, discharge port, and the mold. The whole set briquette extruder machine is driven by an electric motor. The common mold shape is hexagonal, square, and round. Besides, the briquettes core can be solid or hollow.

Pillow Charcoal Machine

Pillow charcoal press is a roller type charcoal briquette machine. It can convert charcoal/coal powder into oval shape and pillow shape briquettes. This machine includes two press rollers and the roll grooves can be customized to produce different shape and size coal briquettes. Charcoal briquettes are solid and convenient for packing and transportation. They are widely used for barbecue, grilling, refractories, power plants, and metallurgy.

Shisha Charcoal Machine

Shisha charcoal machine is mainly composed of a pair of punches. The punch presses up and down to press the granular charcoal into tablet-like shisha coals. It can produce different diameters charcoal tablets and cubes.

Shisha Charcoal Briquettes Processing

  1. Weigh a certain proportion of binder and water, stir well and set aside.
  2. Add the charcoal powder to the wheel mill mixer and add an appropriate amount of combustion improver to mix evenly.
  3. Addthe prepared binder into the charcoal powder in proportion and continue to stir until the powder is not dispersed.
  4. Put the uniformly stirred carbon powder into a shisha/hookah charcoal machine to make charcoal tabletsof various shapes.

Honeycomb Coal Briquette Machine

Honeycomb coal briquette machine can compress the small coal pieces and dust into coal blocks with holes. Its mold can be changed easily to produce cylindrical shape and square shape briquettes. The coal briquette diameter range is 90-250mm with different hole quantity. Honeycomb coal is widely used as household fuel for cooking.
