By: FTM MachineryJanuary 21st,2021

Is it safe to produce charcoal briquettes? Let's take a look at its production process. The production of charcoal briquettes requires the use of reliable charcoal briquette machine. The following is the briquette production process of professional FTM®charcoal briquette machine:

Raw materials → carbonization → crushing and drying → briquetting → drying, packaging and storage.

Step 1 Raw material preparation

First, you need to collect raw materials.

Various raw materials can be made into charcoal briquettes, such as logs, pine, birch, oak and other trees; straw, rice husk, coconut shell, sorghum residue and other crop waste.

Step 2 Carbonization process

The raw material is fed into the carbonization furnace and heated to approximately 1,100°F (590°C).

Then they are carbonized under anhydrous, oxygen-free, high temperature and high pressure conditions.

Step 3 Crushing and drying

Before briquetting, the raw materials need to be pretreated. The hammer crusher is suitable for crushing logs with a diameter less than 200 mm. After grinding, the output diameter is 3-5 mm.

FTM®rotary dryer can reduce the moisture content of raw materials to 12%-15%, and control the raw materials to the required state.

Step 4 Briquetting process

Charcoal briquetting machine is the core equipment.

Due to the combined action of moisture, binders (such as starch), temperature (approximately 105°F or 40°C), and drums, the agglomerates can retain their shape when they fall from the bottom of the ball press.

Step 5 Drying and Packaging

Finally, it is bagged for storage, transportation and sales.

Now FTM®charcoal briquette machine has been widely used in large and medium-sized enterprises all over the world. It saves a lot of resource consumption and economic cost for the enterprise.
