Technological line for active charcoal production on the basis of…


The line is designed for production of activated carbon. Activated charcoal is used in medicine, chemical, pharmaceutical and food industries. Filters contained activated carbon are used in many modern models of devices for purification of different types of materials (water, air, etc.).

Installation Active-1 in the various production lines can be used:

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

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

​​Short description of the installation ACTIVE-1



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, i.e. of the charcoal. Its design provides for installation of burners on liquid, gaseous and solid fuels. Due to the small value of the thermal processing chamber, consistent use of installations is possible in order to conduct sequential processes.
