Why briquette wood chips?
By using our DINAMIC briquetting presses, grinded wood chips and scrap coming from joineries can be recycled by transforming them into cylindrical longs named "briquettes" with variable diameter (depending on the briquetting press), without having to add binders or chemical additives. Nowadays they are among the most widely used biomasses.
THE 6 ADVANTAGES OF BRIQUETTING:
Reduction in volume -90%
Briquettes allow for sensible reduction in volume (depending on the type of material) due to their high pressure compactness rather than the chips. They make work environments considerably more organised and efficient. You can use new spaces to store products and for the production lines.
Lower handling and transport costs -80%
The transformation of wood scrap and chips into compact briquettes ensures easy and practical handling, thus reducing internal and external transport costs (use of the forklift truck and, consequently, the time operators dedicate to collecting scrap).
Lower recycling costs -70%
Briquettes allow for obtaining autonomous heating and can be commercialised, thus reducing production costs and improving your companys impact on the environment.
Lower environmental impact
Briquettes allow for reducing the environmental impact due to the conditions and state of the container or collection facilities, which are often not in a good state.
Lower environmental pollution -70%
The transformation of wood chips and scrap into briquettes improves combustion thanks to an exceptional heat capacity. In turn, this sensibly optimises the yield resulting in less fumes generated and very limited post-combustion residues.
Higher yield +80%
The briquettes allows for concentrating high energy reserves in a limited volume. During the combustion phase, briquettes increase the yield quite sensibly owing to their fundamental characteristic of being compacted at extremely high pressures, as opposed to plain wood chips or scrap. Due to their exceptional heat capacity (wood briquettes have an average yield of 4,000/4,500 kcal, as much as 80% higher that the yield of firewood, which is 2,000/2,300 kcal), they retain heat for longer keeping the temperature inside the boiler firebox high. Owing to their physiological properties, they produce little smoke, have a high density, low percentage of humidity and burn slower and almost entirely with a very limited post-combustion residue. Consequently, the boilers are cleaner and require less maintenance. Due to the very low porosity of briquettes, the embers produced during combustion are denser compared to those produced by wood or by non-pressed biomass.
We have a testing room available for our customers to test together with our specialised technicians any type of material and to present our extensive range of briquetting presses and grinders.
