Briquetting presses BrikStar C

BrikStar C briquetting presses are manufactured based on 20 with BRIKLIS experience. They are suitable for installation under bigger filtration units. They feature reinforced structure of the hopper, rugged steel frame welded from hollow sections, which form hopper legs. A high-capacity filtration unit can be stand on the frame of bearing capacity of 1200 kg. The dimensions of the square hopper can be selected from three sizes with side length of 1400, 1800 or 2300 mm. The extracting cutter on the bottom of the hopper is adapted to the hopper size.

They feature compact design, modern control, reliable hydraulic pressing device, which enables maximum compaction of material. Automatic regulation of the quality of briquettes and the dispensing screw minimize fluctuation of power for pressing materials from fine to rough ones. The minimum level sensor controls automatic start and stop of the machine, and so eliminates useless operation of the press.

Materials for pressing without binders

Materials for pressing should meet these conditions: moisture content from 8 to 15%, dimensions smaller than 15 mm and bulk density of at least 70 kg/m3

  • sawdust, shavings and dust from all kinds of wood including tropical ones
  • rape and grain straw, crushed power plants, flax and hemp awn
  • waste from seed cleaners, poppy-seed material
  • crushed paper, paper dust
  • textile dust and short fibres
  • industrial high-volume or dust waste from exhaust systems
  • polyurethane, some types of composite plastics

Other materials can be exposed to a performance test, which is performed by the BRIKLIS personnel in the BRIKLIS test room free of charge.

Briquette properties

The briquettes have a shape of a cylinder of diameter 65 mm, length 30 to 50 mm, heating value of 15 to 18 MJ/kg. They can be combusted in all types of stoves, boilers and incinerators for combustion of solid fuels. Their big heating value is better used in gasifying boilers.

The volume of waste is decreased eight times by briquetting, and consequently waste transport and storage is cheaper. Big benefit of the briquetting presses is utilization of wastes and reduction of dust in plants.

Standard equipment

  • Briquette guiding – 2 plastic elbows
  • Minimum level sensor
  • Inspection door
  • oil cooler for BrikStar C 100 and BrikStar C 150
