Special line HITECH briquetting presses
HITECH ELP 60 briquetting press
The product is for small- and medium-sized industrial and farming companies.
This is a hydraulic briquetting press for recycling processing scrap for its reuse and regeneration. More specifically, very bulky scrap consisting of chips of wood, cotton, textiles, polyurethane, polystyrene, polyester, polypropylene, hay, straw, alfalfa, animal feed, etc., with a humidity ranging between 8% and 17% are transformed into cylindrical briquettes with variable diameter (depending on the briquetting press), resulting in a sensible reduction in volume 1/5–1/30 depending on the type of material and up to 150 times (as in the case of polystyrene). The briquetting press can be applied to silos or filtering batteries indoors or outdoors.
It is based on a mechanical and hydraulic cycle of high-pressure compacting. A material containment hopper is fastened to a loading bed consisting of a radial loader, which by rotating doses the material to a screw which, in turn, feeds it to a box controlled by a hydraulic cylinder that pre-compresses the material before it reaches the compression chamber. A special hydraulic compression cylinder then compresses the material in the sleeve-extrusion pipe unit.

Entirely redesigned and newly developed base unit
Feeding unit consisting of a hopper that contains the material and a stirrer fastened to the bottom of the hopper which rotates, by means of a dedicated gearmotor for an optimal operating cycle, to ensure that material is fed to a screw positioned beneath the agitator, which guarantees loading of the material onto the tray
New tray unit with enlarged shoulders, consisting of a tray cylinder with PARKER seals and lapped jacket, boasting excellent reliability, operating precision and durability criteria, fastened vertically to the compression cylinder, with the function of pre-compressing the material in the compression chamber through the screw
The compressing unit has been projected with excellent build quality and reliability criteria. It is composed of a hydraulic cylinder with Parker seals, lapped housing and screwed pistons and a piston rod to compress the material in a sleeve inside the compression chamber and shape the briquette.
Vise unit with PARKER seals and guide rings (frequently imitated by competitors due to its unrivalled sturdiness and lasting reliability), consisting of a sturdy and reliable steel monobloc without tie-rods, secured to the extrusion pipe, designed for retaining the briquette during the compression phase and releasing it once the pressure required for forming the briquette has been reached. A dedicated pressure gauge allows for monitoring the operating pressure of the vise

Mechanical level sensor
Level sensor to be applied to the hopper of the briquetting press. It is equipped with a rotor (the material and dimensions vary) which starts and stops the machine automatically.
Inspection door for hoppers Ø 1000
Inspection door to be applied to the hopper of the briquetting press. Recommended when the machine is placed under silos and filtering stations. It is made up of a sturdy hinged steel frame equipped with a visor.
Anti-frost unit to be applied to the oil tank; recommended for machines installed outdoors. It is a heating element with an adjustable thermostat.
Supplementary hopper Ø 1000 – H 930 mm
Supplementary hopper to be applied to the base hopper of the briquetting press to increase the storage volume of the chips.
