[QUESTION]: Dear Sir,
I am interested in Machinery to produce charcoal briquett. I intend to start the project in my country. Please do email me a price quote for the whole system including the information (manual) on how to make them. I am specifically interested in making charcoal from coffee husks, rice husks , coconut husks, macadamia husks saw dust and maize cobs.
I don’t know whether your machines can support making charcoal from sugar cane wastes? please let me know.
Thanking you and looking forward to your response.
———- Answer ———-
[ANSWER]:? From the listed raw materials (coffee husks, rice husks , coconut husks, macadamia husks saw dust, maize cobs, and sugar cane waste), in order to make them into charcoal briquette, we would like to classify them into 2 groups which require different process; Hot process and Cold process.
Hot process : coffee husks, rice husks, macadamia husks, sawdust
Cold process : Maize cobs, Coconut husks (coconut shell?), Sugar cane waste
The hot process is more complicated, requires high skilled personals, require 5-6 times higher investment than that of cold process.
The cold process is suitable for above mentioned materials (Maize cobs, Coconut husks (coconut shell?), Sugar cane waste). However, the best quality of charcoal briquette you can get among those three materials is coconut shell, maize cob and sugar case waste respectively.
We would recommend you to start with only maize cobs and coconut shell first because their quality are good.
About machines of cold process, we can supply to you the machine and guarantee that you will be able to produce good quality (high density) briquette.
We will not only provide you the machine but we will also provide to you all related information, document and know-how. You will receive full operating manual, document and necessary know-how with the machine. Please kindly find our machine’s brochure as attachment. The complete unit as quoted comprises 1 crusher, 1 mixer-dispenser (can be used for 2 extruders), and 2 extruders. The production capacity is about 300-400 kg/hour of wood charcoal or any other biomass charcoal. You can add 1 more extruder to the quotation to double the capacity because the mixer and crusher is already designed for 2 extruders. Automatic cutting units are optional. We already give the manual cutting units with the extruders but if you need automatic cuttings, you can purchase as optional unit.
We can also offer the conveyor and other additional unit as per your request too.
Please give us comment about the above suggestion. Then we will get back to you again with further information asap.
