Installation Active-60 can be used in various production lines:

1. For pyrolysis, burning, calcining, activating of:

    • Mineral coal and charcoal, in order to obtain active charcoal, dolomite (kieselguhr), etc.;
    • Wood chips, nutshell, fruit kernels and other carbonaceous bulk materials in order to obtain charcoal and active charcoal.

2. For drying, carbonization and calcination of raw materials of various types:

    • Mineral raw materials (that are used as building materials);
    • Components of dry building mixtures;
    • Products of chemical industry;
    • Other products that require similar processes.
    • Scheme of the active charcoal obtaining process from carbonaceous materials

Scheme of the active charcoal obtaining process

Active charcoal from nutshell, apple tree pellets and apple tree chips

Technical description

Elements of the technological line for active charcoal production

    1. Equipment for the raw materials preparation for pyrolysis (cutting, crushing etc.). Depending on the types of raw materials used, in agreement with the Customer.
    2. Pyrolysis installation (charcoal kiln). Depending on the parameters of raw materials used for pyrolysis and the productivity of activation line.
    3. Installation for activation Active-1.
    4. Separator. Separation into fractions 0-10 mm and 10-20 mm.
    5. Disintegrator. Crushing to a fraction 0-50 µm.


Short description of the installation ACTIVE-60

The kiln with a rotating drum chamber is a continuous device for thermal processing and activation (drying, pyrolysis, calcination, carbonization and activation) of different types of bulk materials and materials with a high porous system, in this case charcoal. Its design provides for installation of burners on liquid, gaseous and solid fuels. Due to the small size of the thermal processing chamber, consecutive use of installations is possible in order to conduct sequential processes.
