5 Most Common Briquette Machines Divided by Materials

December 7, 2023 machinery 0 Comments

Nowadays, all industries are implementing the environmental
protection concept “everyone has a responsibility to protect the
environment”. Many kinds of waste have been recycled and turned into

For example, construction waste can be recycled and crushed into
building aggregates; powder produced by the mining process can be reused after
processing; the desulfurization gypsum of the power plant can also be used to
replace natural gypsum.

It is worth mentioning the briquette machine while talking about recycling.

Common briquette machines

Common briquette machines

Briquette machine is the most widely-used equipment that can press
powder materials into a specific shape.

All these types of powder, waste, residue materials such as coal
powder, iron powder, coking coal, aluminum powder, iron filings, iron oxide
scale, carbon powder, carbon powder, slag, gypsum, tailings, sludge, kaolin,
activated carbon, coke can be pressed.

Now, let’s see the details of the 5 most common briquette machines.

Charcoal briquette machine

Charcoal powder is one of the products of wood that is incompletely
burned or pyrolyzed under air-insulated conditions.

The main component of the
charcoal is carbon, so it is generally used as a fuel.

How is charcoal powder produced?

It is produced by carbonized biomass materials, such as tree branches, sawdust, coconut shells, rice husks, bamboo chips, corn stalks, and other agricultural wastes.

Note that the carbonization work must be done by yourself. Then we can help you crush the carbonized materials into powder, which is later pressed into charcoal briquettes.

The main applications of the charcoal briquettes

  • 1Heating: For most countries, charcoal briquette is widely used. Choosing charcoal briquettes is an economical method of keeping
  • 2BBQ: It is suitable for
    indirect grilling. The charcoal briquette is the best choice whether
    it is a large commercial barbecue or a home barbecue.
  • 3Industrial silicon plant fuel:
    It can be used as a stove fuel.
  • 4Smelting process fuel: Using
    for continuous heating.

Advantages of the charcoal

First of all, the finished charcoal briquettes not only have the
characteristics of smokeless, odorless, non-toxic, environment-friendly, but
also has large heat, long burning time and are stable in heating.

Secondly, because the a briquetting machine or plant can produce material into different shapes, the final product is convenient for storage and handling. Besides, the finished product has a
superiority that it is cheaper than other fuel.

Coal ash briquetting machine

Coal ash, commonly known as fly ash, refers to the dust and tailings
collected from the coal-fired (including coal gangue and coal slime) smoke and
the desulfurization and denitration ash generated in the production process of the
thermal power plant.

Coal ash is fine ash collected from the flue gas after coal
combustion. It looks like cement and the color is a cross between white and grayish black.

The coal ash particles have a porous honeycomb structure, a large
surface area, and a high adsorption activity, and the particle size ranges from
0.5 to 300 microns. And the bead wall has a porous structure, the porosity is
as high as 50%-80%, and has strong water absorption.

Coal ash source

  • ACoal ash is the main solid
    waste discharged from the thermal power plant.
  • BThe main solid waste generated
    by the boiler house.
  • CCoal mine production line.

Briquetting purpose

With the development of the power industry, the amount of coal ash
discharged from the thermal power plant has increased year by year, making it
one of the most industrial wastes with current displacement.

there are too much coal ash, it will pollute the
atmosphere; if it is discharged into the water system, it will cause the siltation
of the river, and the toxic chemicals in it will harm the human body and
organisms. For these reasons, human beings need to press it into briquettes.

The main application of coal briquettes

  1. Used as a fuel. In many
    countries, coal powder is the main cooking fuel for the kitchen. The same
    pulverized coal is pressed into a specific shape and can burn more completely.
  2. Warm the houses. In many
    countries, people still use stoves to warm themselves.
  3. Used as cement admixture. The
    characteristic of coal ash determines it can be a perfect substitute for
    silicate cement.

Advantages of the coal briquettes

On the one hand, the environmental pollution of solid waste is

On the other hand, it is used as a raw material to obtain various
benefits through processing. It can make coal powder burn more completely, get
more heat energy and save resources, besides, it is clean and easy to store.

Mineral powder briquette machine

Mineral powder refers to the powder produced in the process of crushing and
mineral separation.

Main processing materials

Iron powder, mineral powder, iron oxide scale, steel slag, refractory,
and other metallurgical powders.

Mineral powder source

  1. Blast furnace iron slag
  2. Converter steel slag
  3. By-products of various high-temperature
    smelting ores
  4. Tailings after ore mining

Briquetting purpose

  1. After processing, the
    metallurgical auxiliary materials and scraps are easy to use in the blast
  2. It is convenient to recycle and
    reuse tailings while improving efficiency. The finished product mainly used in
    the smelting process of blast furnace iron-making, steel-making, and other
    metal materials.

Advantages of the finished product

Heavy metal pollution is reduced from the source by processing
metallurgical ore powder, and at the same time, raw materials can be completely

Quicklime dry powder briquette machine

The main component of quicklime (Lime) is calcium oxide (CaO), and
the main component of limestone is calcium carbonate( CaCO3).

Source of quicklime

Mainly comes from the metallurgical industry waste.

Briquetting purpose

The rate of raw material consumption and waste generation in the
metallurgical process is staggering. As the plant operates, lime powder is
continuously produced and piled up. Before too long, it will cause blockages
and environmental pollution.

Since the lime can react with water and the reaction generates
a lot of heat, it is also a safety hazard if the lime content in the waste is

However, if recycled, it is still a resource. Since it is powdery,
it is difficult to store and transport. So, it is the most correct way to
process it into chunks. Therefore, the quicklime dry powder briquette machines
came into being.

The main application of the finished products

  1. Using directly into the furnace
    for smelting, increasing the added value
  2. It can be used as good
    desulfurized materials during the steel-making production.
  3. The quicklime briquettes can
    also be used to replace the lime block to smelt the calcium carbide in the
    production of calcium carbide.

Desulfurization gypsum briquette machine

Desulfuration gypsum, also known as flue gas desulfurization gypsum,
sulfur gypsum or FGD gypsum, is industrial by-product gypsum obtained by
desulfurization and purification of flue gas generated after combustion of
sulfur-containing fuel (coal, oil, etc.).

According to the difference between the burning coal type and the
dust removal effect of the flue gas, the desulfurized gypsum presents different
colors from the appearance. Generally, the common ones are grayish-yellow or
grayish-white, and the desulfurized gypsum of good quality is pure white color.

Desulfurization gypsum source

It mainly comes from the flue
gas desulfurization process of the thermal power plant. Most of the power
plants adopt the limestone-gypsum desulfurization process. At present, nearly
20 countries have adopted the flue gas desulfurization process in the world.

It uses a slurry made of limestone powder and water as an absorbent
and is pumped into the absorption tower to be thoroughly mixed with the flue

The sulfur dioxide in the flue gas is oxidized with calcium carbonate
and air in the slurry to form calcium sulfate, and the calcium sulfate reaches
a certain saturation, the calcium sulfate dihydrate will be crystallized, and
then is discharged into the absorption tower, concentrated, dehydrated, and
transported to a gypsum silo for stacking.

The main application of the finished product

  1. It can be used in the production of cement and can replace natural cement.
  2. It can be used in the chemical industry.
  3. Replace the natural gypsum to produce building materials.
  4. It can be used as a retarder.
