Choose right biomass briquette press to profit your bussines
Biomass briquettes fuel seems to come into focus these days as the environmental issues and energy crisis becomes urgent for sustainably development. The briquettes seems to be one of the new energy sources however the biomass briquettes fuel also can be called as “tradition fuel” for since before recorded history, the Nepal people have been using biomass briquettes made of self-made briquetters for cooking and heating purpose. While at the same time the “biomass briquettes” processed by the advanded briquettes making plants also can be called as one of the new fuel sources because new briquetting technology has been adopted to make the briquettes.
Compare with the loose briquettes used in the past, the solid briquettes made by new briquetting technology enjoy higher density of 1.2 g/cm3 than that of loose biomass of 0.1 to 0.2 g/cm3 for general. However heat values of biomass briquettes vary with the raw materials composition, which ranges from 4.48 to 5.95 kJ/g, whereas the heat value of sawdust, charcoal and wood pellets ranges from 7.24 to 8.25 kJ/g, according to a study conducted by Boise State University, which also show that the low heat value feedstocks can be composted and pressed by the briquetting makers or the briquetting plans into processed highly density briquettes as biomass fuel to meet energy needs and ease energy pressure.
The increasing growth of energy needs and price drives the expansion of biomass briquettes production scale with large industrial briquette making plants and the briquettes application which means the biomass briquettes is now having a promising market. It can be used by the industrial boilers for steam and heat generation, food processing industries for drying, etc, textile process houses for dyeing, bleaching, etc, clay products industries, such as tile making, pot firing, etc, and domestic using for cooking and water heating.
As the briquettes market gets more and more prosperous, it’s the right time to invest in the briquetting business. And one of the important factor is the chocies of a birquette making machine also called briquttes maker or a briquetter. At present, there are three types of briquette press in the market for general; namely, there are the piston briquettes press, the screw press briquetting machines and the hydraulic briquetting press plants. The piston briquettes press punches the biomass materials into a die by a reciprocating ram with high pressure and eventually to compress the biomass into briquettes. As for a screw briquettes extruder press, the biomass is extruded continuously by a screw through a heated taper die. In a piston press briquetting plant the wear of the contact parts e.g., the ram and die is less compared to the wear of the screw and die in a screw briquettes extruder press. Another type of briquetting machine is the hydraulic piston briquettes press. This is different from the mechanical piston briquettes press in that the power driven the piston is transmitted from an electric motor via a high pressure hydraulic oil system. And compare with the other kinds of briquette pressing machines, the hydraulic briquette presses can process materials with moisture content of 15 % which is much higher than the others.
In order to produce good quality briquettes, you need to choose the right briquette press according to the conditions of your feedstocks, such as particle size, moisture content; temperature of biomass and die, and sometime, the external additives is needed, depending on the composition of your raw materials. So if you want to open the door of biomass briquettes, you need to choose the right briquette press to profit your business.
