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.
Advantages of our briquetting machines:
- Fully automatic 24h operation
- Compact construction
- Long service life
Advantages of RUF briquettes:
- Various briquette formats possible
- Briquetting of dusty materials
- Increased revenues from briquettes
- No binding agents required
- CO2-neutral fuel
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.
“The RUF machines have been working very reliably since their commissioning. They are well-engineered and highly recommendable.”
"We are thoroughly satisfied with this equipment and are considering an expansion of its use."
"This is the perfect solution to our handling and space problems. And the waste aluminium in the compact briquette shape – largely cleaned of the cooling lubricant emulsion – achieves a higher profit when sold on ."
"The briquetting system works completely without problems and had already amortised itself after two years.”
“We are very satisfied with the RUF Briquetting system. The investment has definitely paid off.”
"First and foremost I am impressed by the good price-performance ratio, the quality and the reliability of the machines. Besides I truly appreciate the excellent personal relationship I have experienced with the family business and their Senior Director Hans Ruf from day one."
"The RUF briquetting press has been generating profits since day one, thanks to its good price-performance ratio, an appropriate financing plan and the savings it makes possible."
"Our collaboration with company RUF has started in 2002 and has been successful through all these years. RUF is not just a world known machinery producer name and the leader in briquetting technologies market. RUF is your trustful business partner as it has been a reliable and supporting partner for us during both – periods of the sales peaks and during market depression. It’s our luck to have the same business philosophy with our main business partner – the RUF company. When both of you have the same aim, you achieve it faster!"
"We do not have one unsatisfied customer with a RUF machine – and we have sold some 40 systems here in Australia and New Zealand. That in itself speaks volumes for the RUF company and its equipment. In our opinion the RUF briquette press cannot be matched from a performance basis. Although it is more expensive than most competing machines from a capital cost point of view, the ongoing trouble free performance and maintenance of the RUF machines put them well ahead of the opposition."
The merger of RUF and C.F. Nielsen means that the world’s biggest range of solutions from a single provider has been opened up to users of briquetting machines: Hydraulic Briquetting Systems (rectangular briquettes), Mechanical Briquetting Systems (round briquettes) und Extruder Briquetting Systems (dense briquettes suitable for carbonization) Almost irrespective of the throughputs that are needed, the quality of the material and chips, and the production conditions that prevail – we can always find the optimal briquetting solution in order to bring the greatest possible benefit to our customers.
