coconut biomass briquettes

Biomass is popular today since it uses plant-based material to create fuel to produce heat. Coconut biomass briquettes product is one example. You may get curious about how to turn coconut waste into a biomass briquette. It involves one of the machines below to produce this product.

Piston Presses 

Coconut biomass briquette manufacturers often use a piston press machine to shape the coconut briquettes into the cylinder. This machine will press the raw material, along with the compacted material inside the pressing tube. Then, the piston will press the briquettes discontinuously to a certain size. The machine will also heat the material to keep the size and shape of the coconut biomass briquettes. The last thing to do is cool the briquettes before packing them. The process makes the final product the same size and shape and makes it more interesting to see. The manufacturers should mill the coconut shells into less than 10 mm. Then, they also dry the raw material to reduce the water content to less than 15 percent. This machine can handle around 25 to 1800kg per hour, along with 50 to 70 kWh/t. It is good for a small coconut briquette company. 

Screw Compaction or Extrusion 

Screw compaction or extrusion machine helps to compact small coconut shells. The main purpose is to ensure that the pressed coconut biomass briquettes are stronger. It makes coconut biomass briquettes not easily break even during the heating process. The extrusion process begins when the coconut shells move from the feed port. The feed port moves because of the rotating screw. The higher the rotation speed of the screw, the higher the temperature. The material will pass through the extrusion to become coconut shell briquettes. Coconut biomass briquettes made with screw compaction or extrusion machines are denser compared to those made with a piston press machine. It is also a good option for small briquette companies because of the low capacity per hour. 

Pan Grinder Press for Pelletizing 

Just like its name, the pan grinder press machine works to create pellets. The process is similar to the briquettes with a piston press and screw compaction machine. The difference between these two machines and a pan grinder press machine is the diameter of the briquettes. A pan grinder press machine produces coconut biomass briquettes in a smaller diameter. The process keeps the coconut shell briquettes hot even after moving out the dies. Then, they will cut the briquettes about one or two times the diameter. This machine can produce two different pellets, which are flat and ring. Manufacturers can use this machine to produce 200 kg to 8 tons per hour.   


A hand-shaped method is a manual technique to make coconut shell briquettes. Manufacturers let the coconut biomass soaks in the water for a few days. The biomass is squeezed after a few days. Manufacturers mix biomass with paper pulp as a binder.

Each manufacturer uses a different machine to produce coconut biomass briquettes. It is the reason why you often get different types of briquettes in the market.
