Easy to make wood briquettes in winter

Blog 580

In the chilly winter, warmth is undoubtedly what you crave most. Gathered around the cozy fireplace on the comfortable sofa with your loved ones, you feel an indescribable sense of warmth and happiness. However, as the fire gradually fades, the coldness starts to creep into the room, causing the children to shiver. Now is the time to put your homemade briquette press or wood briquettes machine into action and make some wood briquettes to relight your fireplace and keep your home cozy and warm.

Pellet Stove

Biomass briquettes produced by briquetting machines offer a heat value ranging from 4.48 to 5.95 KJ/G, varying based on their composition. On the other hand, wood briquettes, sawdust briquettes, charcoal briquettes, and wood pellets exhibit a heat value between 7.24 and 8.25 KJ/G, according to Boise State University’s research. Even when compared to coal fuel, biomass briquettes hold their own, offering distinct advantages and characteristics.

Let’s consider corn stalk briquettes as an example to illustrate their key parameters. They have a density ranging from 700 to 1400 kg/m³, ash content of 1-20%, and moisture content not exceeding 15%. Their heat value stands at 3700 – 4500 kj/KG, approximately 0.7 -0.8 times that of coal. This means that the energy content of 1.25 tons of corn stalk briquettes is comparable to that of 1 ton of coal. When burned in a suitable bio-furnace, the combustion rate of these briquettes is 1.3 – 1.5 times faster than coal burned in a coal-fired boiler. Therefore, under similar conditions, the heat utilization ratio of 1 ton of corn stalk briquettes is comparable to that of 1 ton of coal. However, environmentally speaking, corn stalk briquettes fare much better. Their carbon emissions are nearly “zero,” with NO emissions at 214 mg/m³, SO emissions at 246 mg/m³, and soot emissions at 127 mg/m³, all significantly lower than coal. Additionally, the ash from these briquettes can be reused as potash fertilizer.

Wood briquettes machines, also known as briquette makers, can convert various biomass materials into briquettes, including sawdust, tree branches, twigs, waste wood blocks, rice husk, straw, paperboard, and other wooden substances. By incorporating Siemens’ intelligent PLC module, these machines operate more efficiently, intelligently, safely, and quietly. So, don’t overlook the vast amounts of biomass resources surrounding you and seize the opportunity to invest in the profitable biomass business. Compared to DIY home-made briquette makers, wood briquettes machines offer superior efficiency, ensure high-quality briquettes, and maximize the utilization of biomass materials.
