Charcoal briquette is a kind of fuel made by charcoal powder. Compared with traditional fuels, charcoal briquettes can not only generate heat continuously but also produce no smoke and odor during combustion.
Therefore, it has been widely used in domestic and industrial applications in recent years and has become the most popular fuel in many countries such as Kenya, the Middle East, Uganda, India, etc.
With the increase of its economic benefits, the charcoal briquettes process has become one of the hottest processing industries. So, what are the ingredients of charcoal briquettes and how to make charcoal briquettes?
The charcoal briquette is mainly composed of two parts, the charcoal which is used to provide heat and the minor ingredients. Charcoal is the product of incomplete combustion of wood or wood raw materials or pyrolysis under the condition of air isolation.
Charcoal accounts for more than 70% of the entire charcoal briquettes. As the combustion material providing heat, the raw materials for charcoal can be various woods, such as beech, birch, hard maple, pecan and oak.
The charcoal is mainly processed by the kiln. In general, the charcoal produced and extinguished in the kiln is called black wood charcoal. It has the advantage of being easy to ignite, but it is easy to explode during burning with a short burning time and much smoke.
While the white wood charcoal can be oxidized and generate white ash after being carbonized, removed from the kiln and quenched with wet sand. Compared with black wood charcoal, it has a harder texture.
The charcoal briquette cannot fully contact with oxygen during the combustion process, so the accelerator is needed to accelerate the combustion. The most suitable accelerator is the nitrate, which can not only provide oxygen to accelerate combustion but also heat during combustion.
By observing the degree of turning white, we can judge the burning degree of the charcoal briquette. In addition, because the white ash is not combustible, it can effectively extend the burning time.
Numerous facts show that starch has the best performance as a binding material. After it's gelatinized, a thick paste can be formed so that the charcoal powder is stuck together to facilitate the later briquette.
After the end of combustion, close the air inlet, and after one to two hours of exhaust, close the exhaust hole. After a two-week cooling period, empty the kiln and crush the carbonized wood (charcoal).
Use a hammer crusher or roller crusher to crush the carbonized wood. Although different types of wood such as bark, dry wood chips, wet wood and so on should be crushed to different sizes, generally they can be crushed into pieces of charcoal to 5mm below to make high-quality charcoal briquettes.
Then a drying process is needed. If the water content exceeds the empirical upper limit, the temperature will rise and the volume will expand suddenly, which is easy to cause an explosion. If the moisture content is too low, it will be difficult to mold. Use a dryer to reduce its moisture content to the level required for briquettes formation by about half (to about 15%).
Briquetting is a key step in charcoal molding. After the raw materials enter the ball press, they will be subjected to three kinds of forces, namely the main driving force of the briquette machine, the friction force and the centripetal force of the wall.
Due to moisture, adhesives, temperature (about 105 F or 40 C) and pressure of the rollers of the briquetting machine, the charcoal briquettes can maintain their shape when they fall from the bottom of the machine.
After production, bag the charcoal briquettes immediately or stored them in silos. Following the above steps, charcoal briquettes will be produced at a production rate of 2200-20,000 pounds (1-9 metric tons) per hour.
According to the content above, it is not so difficult to process charcoal briquettes. But we need to pay attention to many details, such as component ratio, moisture, all of which will directly affect the final quality.
Therefore, the author recommends that the users need to understand and confirm every step and its details of the charcoal briquettes processing ahead. And then choose the reliable supplier for the purchase of the equipment needed in the processing, such as crusher, dryer, briquette machine, etc.

Charcoal briquette is widely used around the world for BBQ, fuel, etc. Its really a big deal that a lot of companies doing the charcoal making around the world when making the charcoal, there will be a lot of fine charcoal dust we need to collect and find ways to deal with them.
Studies show that in charcoal manufacturing establishments, fine waste constitutes 10 to 15 percent of usable charcoal. So there comes a big inquiry for charcoal briquette machine to do the briquette work. And also for otherlow-density wood and bulky materials like coconut husks, corn cobs, etc, in order to improve the quality of the charcoal for further usage, we make these charcoal into briquette as well.
Small material size is always good for charcoal briquette making before you make your charcoal briquette, please check all of your charcoal fine with the proper size. We recommend you the of under 5mm for making good quality charcoal briquette.
Charcoal is a material totally lacking plasticity and hence needs addition of a sticking or agglomerating material to enable a briquette to be formed. Thus Binder becomes a very important factor is the charcoal briquette making process, pure charcoal is a thing which burns with no smoke, no smell. The use of charcoal determines the type of binder it uses, for industry usage,there would be wider choices in binders.
Charcoal briquette is a very good fuel compare to biomass briquette which is also widely used. When we turn the biomass into charcoal,after a series of pyrolysis reactions, we remove the smoke, smell and only leave thecarbon with the raw material, this makes the charcoal briquette with the advantage of smokeless, odorless and high burning value (80% ahead of biomass briquette) when burnt.
The roller briquette press machine makes a continuous charcoal briquette process with large capacity. With one briquetter, the capacity can even to 12 t/h. The briquette is also easy to be packed with packing machines.
Extrusion briquette maker is an ideal briquette machine for charcoal briquette making in industry. The briquette is with a different shape compared to the roller briquette press, the briquette is made with low energy cost. The machine is with low maintenance cost no matter time and money.
Coal charcoal briquette making machine makes charcoal briquette with honeycomb/beehive shape. It also can make charcoal briquette with the shape much similar toextrusion briquette maker and with each of the briquette the same size. The briquette is with high strengthbecause of its high pinch pressure.
Hookah charcoal briquettes maker is with a mechanical or hydraulic system which supplies a big pressure for charcoal making, thus makes the briquette with high density and long burning time. The machine usually used for making charcoal briquette as hookah/shisha. The high quality briquette is also a very good product for BBQ.
Everyone who wants to buy a briquette machine always asks this very important question what is the price of the machine? Today, let us analyze the cost of the briquette presses and what we should pay attention to about the briquette machine price.
The most important thing of a briquette machine we must pay attention to is the type of the briquette making machines, we should find whether the type is suitable for our raw material or not, is it has a pressure big enough to make briquette with our ideal strength, is the briquette shape what we need.
The roller type machine has been widely used in industry, especially in the steel plant, it has features of large capacity and continuous work, as the pressure keeping time is much less than other type briquette machines, binders are always needed to help to make the briquette.
Hydraulic type briquette machine works with the hydraulic system which supplies a big adjustable pressure. In order to be suitable with the briquette pressure, the machines are equipped with spare parts with high quality.
Most of the screw type briquette machines are used for biomass with small capacity. As the biomass has an original binder lignin, people always try to find ways to briquette biomass with a binder free way. Screw pressure is not big enough to make it flow. Thus other ways like heating are considered to solve the problem.
Agriculture has a lot of waste every year. These waste include agricultural and forestry by-products and processing residues, energy crops, and organic waste such as human and animal waste, etc. Biomass energy is the only renewable energy source that can be preserved. Aftermaking the biomass briquette, the volume is reduced by 20 to 30 times, the density can be around 1 t/m3, with low moisture, and easy to store or transport. Biomass energy accounts for about 15% of global energy, and in some countries, the proportion is even as high as 60-80%.
Recycling waste is always the topic in the industry. These waste, in industry, they even can make more value compare to the original raw material. Most of the waste for briquetting is theswarf and mining powder. By using these waste, we make a higher efficiency for the production line and protect the environment by reducing the raw material cost.
There are a lot of things need to be considered before you buy a briquette machine or set up a briquette plant, the cost on the machine is an investment for only once but further consideration should be included as we should make value from the briquette.
A general calculation should be done before you make your choice of purchasing the briquette plant, follow the instruction and regularly maintain your machine with care will help your briquetter run longer time and face lower default.
The charcoal briquette machine, also known as coal & charcoal extruder machine and charcoal briquettes making machine, which is the special equipment for briquettes production. The charcoal briquettes makers are composed of the base, bearing base, spiral shaft, discharge port, and extruding molds.

This commercial charcoal briquette machine is often used in charcoal processing plants of various sizes to produce charcoal products of various specifications, such as barbecue charcoal and hookah charcoal.
In fact, the main function of the coal briquette machine is to make briquettes from carbon powder under a certain squeezing force. However, the carbon powder needs to be processed accordingly before being squeezed.
For example, we need to add a certain amount of binder to the carbon powder and ensure that the carbon powder maintains a certain moisture content. Moreover, after coal briquettes are made, we still need to cut them into briquettes of uniform length with the help of the briquettes cutting machine.
The Philippine customer personally visited our charcoal machine factory and ordered a briquettes extruder machine that can make cube hookah charcoal. The Philippine customer partnered with his Turkish friend to start a hookah charcoal production business. The raw material is coconut shell.
Among them, the Philippines and Indonesia are the two countries with the most exports. We can sell more charcoal briquette machines to Indonesia and other countries, in addition to the great local market demand, because our briquette extruders are too cost-effective.
Some users usually do not pay attention to follow the correct operating instructions when using coal briquette making machines. The consequence of this is that the briquettes have poor molding effects and low output. It can also cause the briquette extruder machine to malfunction.
Therefore, the main factor affecting the service life of the coal briquette machine is whether the user can operate the machine correctly. Our factory will usually send customers detailed operating instructions for charcoal briquette machines and correct operation instruction videos to help customers quickly master the method of using briquette machines.
The price of the charcoal briquette machine varies from manufacturer to manufacturer. Usually, foreign customers also add freight when buying a commercial briquette extruder machine, so the price is higher.

Special notes: This tutorial assumes that you a) already have some familiarity with quilting in general or b) like me, you are cool with rolling through and learning new projects as you go, so we will not be covering how to create the quilt top itself. For beginners to quilting, check out this tutorial for the basics you need to know!
If your high-loft batting isn't fresh out of the bag, it has probably expanded and is full of air! For the best embroidery results, press the batting under some heavy books or a big flat board to re-compress it. Leave it to sit for 30 minutes and you'll be all set to go!
Now that your batting is all set to go, cut out a big piece that is larger than your quilt top. Make sure there is some extra batting around the edges on all four sides. Then spray the batting with temporary adhesive, and smooth the quilt top on top of the batting. Grab some curved safety pins, and pin those two layers together. Between the adhesive and the pins, this fabric isn't going anywhere while we embroider!
Next, cut out a piece of cutaway stabilizer bigger than your hoop. Spray on some temporary adhesive, and smooth the stabilizer on the backside of the batting behind where the embroidery where stitch. Make sure it's in the right place, and leave some wiggle room in case you need to move that hoop around.
Move any pins that are in the way, and hoop the quilt top, batting, and stabilizer together. Make sure it's tight, and line up the marks on the hoop with the lines you drew earlier! Load your design on the machine and embroider.
Once all the embroidery is done, cut a piece of baking fabric just a little bit bigger than the batting, and pin all those layers together! Curved safety pins work great for quilts, because their shape allows you to catch and hold all that fabric without shifting anything around.
Then go back to that good old sewing machine, and sew any other fun quilting detail that you want. I used clear nylon monofilament thread and a bobbin wound with thread matching my backing fabric to "stitch in the ditch". This means just sewing in the seam between all my quilting squares to bind the layers together and enhance that fun puffy effect from the high loft batting!
Simple patchwork designs combined with unique embroidered designs can make a quilted wall hanging like no other. Keep it small, or take it to the next step and use these techniques to create a full sized puffy quilt to decorate your bed or couch!
Don't feel like going the traditional route with your quilting? These light-stitching designs are fun for all kinds of effects. Stitch your quilting design over fabric layered with batting to make a perfectly dimensional pillow.
Try overlapping a few quilting designs to bring a new dimension to this textured look. Quilting designs can be scattered throughout a project, or used selectively to create a subtle decorative effect. Try them out on all kinds of projects, and enjoy experimenting with your new quilting designs.Get in Touch with Mechanic
