Screw pressing line for Pini-kay briquettes production

Bio-fuel production is a promising direction, since it is associated with the use of renewable resources for energy production.

Equipment is designed for production of briquettes (without binders), which have wide application;

  • As a solid fuel in boilers, kilns, furnaces, etc.
  • As raw materials for producing charcoal of a new generation by the pyrolysis of briquette in charcoal kilns.

The obtained briquettes Pini-Kay in the production process correspond to all European standards and do not require Certification.

Briquetting line scheme

1.  Chipping machine/crusher
2. Separating drum
3. Storage hopper
4. Heat generator
5. Combined dryer
6. Hammer crusher
7. Storage hopper

8. Aerodynamic dryer
9. Separate feeding hopper
10. Cyclone
11. Screw extruder
12. Briquette cooler
13. Feeding conveyor


Raw material for briquetting is loaded into crushing machine 1, where primary crushing takes place. Then raw material is fed into separating drum 2, where it is calibrated in sizes. Calibrated raw material is fed into the storage hopper 3, equipped with blades for mixing and then it is fed into a combined dryer 5 (drum dryer with characteristics of aerodynamic dryer). After drying raw material is crushed in hammer crusher 6 to a fraction less than 1 mm, which is optimal for briquetting. Then it is fed into the storage hopper 7, which is also equipped with blades, and passes through aerodynamic dryer 8, which remove the remaining moisture. After that, the raw material is captured by the cyclone 10 and is accumulated in separate feeding hopper 9. Then raw material is fed for the briquetting by screw extruder 11 due to release of lignin during heating of raw materials. The formed briquette is fed into cooling chamber 12, where formed gases are gathered. The briquette is fed into feeding conveyor 13.

Useful information:

  • It is required 8 cubic meters of natural moisture sawdust (55) or 6 cubic meters of dry sawdust per one tone of briquette.
  • In case of using hardwood (firewood, slab etc.) it is required 2,2 cubic meters per 1 t of briquette.
  • Any roofed space with minimum height of 5 meters and a concrete screed of 5 cm is suitable for equipment installation.
  • The heat generator is placed outside under a shed or in a fenced place.
  • The size of the premise depends on complete set.
  • The number of people required to work on the line is from 2 to 5 depending on complete set.
  • Equipment was designed for twenty-four hour operation
  • Advance payment is 60% and 40% upon completion of manufacturing
  • The production time of line is from 40 to 60 days.
  • Shipping is at the buyer’s expense.
