Craft enterprises and industrial operations produce wood chips, shavings and saw dust on a daily basis that take up considerable space to store and transport. By contrast, briquettes save space and are easier to transport, and unlike loose materials, present a far lower risk of spontaneous combustion. Briquetting presses from AWB process these very wood chips, shavings etc. into compact briquettes that can be used to produce energy for heating. The briquetting presses are installed as a stand-alone machine or in conjunction with evacuation systems. The features of the briquettes produced by these machines are a huge reduction in volume for the same high heating value and controllable combustion.
The following are the hallmarks of AWB briquetting presses:
- Huge reduction in volume resulting in considerablepotential savings in the cost of storage, transportand disposal
- Burn briquettes for cost effective energy production
The material to be compressed is mixed by a continually turning tube extractor in the container and then fed to the pressing mechanism by a discharge screw conveyor.
The loose material is then subsequently pre-compressed. Then by means of pressure from the press cylinder the pre-formed briquette is transformed into its final, highly compacted, form. When the programmed pressure value has been reached the tongs open and the prepared briquette is pushed out.
