Briquetting presses BrikStar CSD

BrikStar CSD presses with a unique rectangular hopper with two cutters have been developed for installation under a compact Vacumobil exhaust system for very light, coarse or dusty material.

General informationMain advantagesTechnical parametres

Rectangular hopper

The new rectangular design of the hopper of the briquetting press can be a solution for installation in confined premises, or may be helpful in dedusting of a heavy dust-producing plant.

Variable design, safe operation

BrikStar CSD can be manufactured in both right and left versions with possible other subtypes. The press hopper is equipped with an inspection hole in the removable front wall.

Compact machine – the press with exhaust system

The press is delivered on one stand, with minimum installation costs. The combination of the briquetting press and the HÖCKER POLYTECHNIK Vacumobil exhaust system meets the severest safety and hygienic standards of the European Union. Due to the design height, this briquetting press must not be operated with a hopper opened on the top according to DIN EN ISO 13857 (manual feeding is not permitted). It is only suitable for the connection with the HÖCKER POLYTECHNIK Vacumobil or similar system.

CSD – compact, smart and double

The presses feature compact design, modern control, reliable hydraulic pressing device, which enables maximum compaction of material. For continuous operation, they can be equipped with an oil cooler. Automatic regulation of the quality of briquettes and the dispensing screw minimize fluctuation of power for pressing of materials from fine to rough ones. The hopper can be equipped with a minimum level sensor, which stops the press after you remove the material. And which also ensure the restart of the press when the sensor detects new material. The hopper 15-09 is equipped by double rotor for easy emptying.

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 common wood species as well as certain tropical ones
  • crushed paper
  • paper dust

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

  • Text display, which enables easy individual setting of the press
  • Briquette guiding – 2 plastic elbows
  • Round inspection hole
  • Removable front wall of the hopper
