Briquetting biomass

Briquetting press for biogenic residual matter

The RUF briquette press for biomass forms briquettes from biogenic residual matter of all kinds, including wood chips, MDF, chipboard panel residues, agricultural substances, paper and textile dust, producing briquettes of a consistently high quality and density. Our briquette press range for biomass offers maximum flexibility. The systems can be equipped with a large number of options to meet specific customer requirements. Thanks to its compact construction, the briquette press can easily be integrated into existing production processes and can be operated fully automatically, 24 hours a day.

Briquetting biomass – generating increased revenue

Through the briquetting of loose material, the volume of the material is greatly reduced, as is the level of dust formation. A consistent length and a constant weight of the briquette can largely be ensured, even with different bulk densities, through our highly developed system of briquette length regulation.
To be able to press biomass, it is important that the water content of the material is below 15%.

In our biomass series, you can choose from either a classic rectangle or a specially shaped briquette format, e.g. a “bone briquette”.
Depending on customer requirements, we offer biomass briquette presses for throughputs between 50 and 1,050 kg per hour.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the requirements for producing briquettes?

In general, almost all materials can be made into briquettes. However, the chip particles should not be bigger than 50mm. The chips should not contain any impurities. For Wood & Biomass the moisture content should be less than 12 % (max 15 %).

How long is the service life of a machine?

RUF briquette presses are very robust and are known for having a low level of wear and tear. Some of our systems have been in use for more than 25 years. 

What is the smallest amount of chips that makes briquetting worthwhile?

Briquetting can be worthwhile even with very small quantities of chips. Briquette presses with a lower throughput should be considered here. Depending on the material, our systems can make economic sense in these cases too. Our specialists will be happy to advise you!
