Continuous carbonization furnace BIO-KILN

The BIO-KILN carbonization furnace is a patented, environmentally friendly, continuous installation for the thermal processing of plant materials. It is designed specifically for the production of high-quality charcoal as a raw material for the production of hookah charcoal, charcoal briquettes, activated carbon or bio-char.


The charcoal-burning complex based on the BIO-KILN carbonization unit allows automating the entire production process of producing charcoal: the processes of loading raw materials and unloading finished charcoal, it also makes it possible to automatically control the content  carbon in charcoal, minimize ash content, increase the output of charcoal, eliminate the influence of the human factor and achieve consistently high performance indicators of the furnace.

The main advantage of BIO-KILN: constant quality parameters and output volumes of the product are readily achieved, since charcoal production occurs without human intervention in the technical process, namely in automatic mode.

The benefits of this charcoal production plant include:

  • Reliability of the kiln. The carbonization device is made 100% from refractory materials.
  • The process is 100% environmentally friendly, only water vapor and carbon dioxide are released
  • Lack of liquid pyrolysis products, they completely burn out without leaving any traces and generate heat energy
  • High efficiency from a compact device
  • High productivity: 15-100 t / month, depending on the raw materials parameters and the kiln model (Bio-Kiln 1, 2 or 3)
  • The furnace operates 24/7 and does not require technological stops
  • The process is 100% automated and eliminates the influence of the human factor
  • Modern management and control: LCD display, language bar, memory, cloud service and other modern features
  • Production of thermal energy, which can be used for drying of raw materials, drying of charcoal briquettes, or other heating purposes
  • Complete lack of energy consumption provides kiln autonomy
  • Remote Control 
  • High yield and quality of charcoal
  • Wide range of raw materials
  • Content carbon in charcoal from 80% to 94%

Operating the Bio-Kiln

Crashed (size 5-30 mm) and pre-dried raw materials (moisture <15%) are loaded into the storage hopper with vibrating feeder, from where using the bucket elevator is loaded into the kiln hopper. Loading raw materials into the hopper the furnace is made as the level sensors signals in him also as the finished charcoal is unloaded outside carbonization chamber. Raw materials come from the storage hopper of the BIO-Kiln into the carbonization chamber, which is vertical shafts-channels for raw materials and heat carrier, in this case, the raw material moves from top to bottom, and the coolant in opposite direction. Raw material channels end at the bottom with gateway devices for unloading charcoal into a stabilization hopper. As unloading of finished charcoal, raw material moves down the channels, while in the carbonization device the following processes take place: preheating, pyrolysis and charcoal calcination.
Processes: stabilization and cooling of charcoal, take place in stabilization hopper of the furnace, from where with screw transporter is unloaded into the trolley or storage hopper of finished charcoal, the charcoal passes through the air stabilization, after which is ready for further use. The flue gases, after the carbonation device, enter the afterburner, where they are completely burned – decomposition, ensuring 100% environmental friendliness of the furnace – no harmful emissions into the atmosphere. Exhaust flue gas temperature after the afterburner of the furnace is more than 1000 °C, which makes it possible to use them for various thermal processes: preliminary drying of raw materials, heating of premises, charcoal briquette drying, steam production, etc. 

The discharged product is then sent to packaging or to the line for the production of briquettes for hookah and barbecue, where it is initially crushed, mixed with water and passed through an extruder to form briquettes of a given shape.
