Briquettes Making Process - Biomass Briquettes

  • Raw Material Pretreatment

Making briquettes is the first step in the charcoal briquettes making process. In order to make qualified charcoal briquette, the raw material pretreatment is considered as the first important process, especially when you make charcoal briquettes for sale. The raw material treatment mainly includes drying (sawdust dryer) and crushing to keep the moisture around 10% and crush the size into around 3mm.

Briquettes Carbonization Process (Charking) - Charcoal Briquettes

The sawdust briquettes are carbonized inside the furnace with little oxygen. Generally this process can be divided into 3 temperature periods:

  • Drying Period

From ignition to the furnace temperature reaches 160℃. In this period, the moisture inside the sawdust briquettes is mainly evaporated by heating and their own combustion. The chemical composition of briquettes is unchanged.

  • Initial Carbonization

In this period, the furnace temperature increases to 160-200℃ by the heat generated in the combustion of briquettes. Some components like hemicellulase are decomposed into CO2, CO and others.

  • Comprehensive Combustion Period

In this period the temperature reaches 300-650℃, and its components are thermally decomposed sharply while abundant of liquid like acetic acid, methyl alcohol and wood tar and gases like methane and ethylene are generated. These combustible gases burn inside the furnace and increase its temperature. The wood briquettes are destructively distillated into charcoal.
