Charcoal Making Machine

Charcoal making machine is an excellent solution for sustainable charcoal production. At present, waste biomass has caused a lot of resource waste due to the lack of recycling methods. By converting biomass into charcoal through pyrolysis technology, charcoal machine realizes sustainable recycle of waste biomass. At present, the market demand for charcoal in various industries continues to grow. It has broad application prospects and good commercial value in agriculture, industry and other fields. Therefore, investing in an charcoal machine can not only contribute to the waste biomass management, but also bring considerable income to the recyclers.


Charcoal Making Machine: Redefining Waste Biomass Management

Charcoal making machine is a modern equipment used to convert biomass into charcoal through pyrolysis process. During pyrolysis, organic matter such as cellulose, hemicellulose and lignin in biomass decomposes. Subsequently, the process converts biomass into a carbon-rich substance, charcoal. In addition, the process forms useful by-products such as combustible gas, wood vinegar, and tar. This biomass recycling solution offers several advantages:

Minimized Waste Accumulation

Pyrolysis technology achieves a significant reduction in both the weight and volume of waste biomass. This reduces waste accumulation on a large scale, thereby alleviating space occupancy and environmental burden.

Maximized Resource Efficiency

The end products generated from the biomass pyrolysis machine have high utilization & business value. It promotes further resource recycling and economic development.

Green Production Mode

The production line adopts facilities to treat waste gas, wastewater, and residue. This is in line with an environmentally friendly production model and thus achieves sustainability goals.

Unique Charcoal Making Machine Design from Beston

Security Design

  • Explosion-proof Design: There is an explosion-proof water seal at the combustible gas pipeline, and an explosion-proof hole is set at the end of the main furnace.
  • Sealing Design: The seal adopts a multi-level, multi-point sealing structure. The seal is constructed of a variety of materials, including graphite blocks, sealing cloth and fish scales.
  • Danger Warning Design: The PLC cabinet is equipped with an alarm device. If there is a fault in the electrical part of the equipment during charcoal manufacturing process, there will be an alarm.

Environmental Protection Design

  • Gas Treatment: Combustible gas produced by automatic charcoal maker is treated with multiple dust removal devices before use. The waste gas generated by charcoal making process is treated with dust removal, cooling, and desulfurization.
  • Reduce Fossil Fuel Use: Diesel and natural gas are only used to preheat the main furnace. The rest energy supply of the charcoal processing machine runs on combustible gas. This can reduce emissions from the combustion of fossil fuels.
  • Wastewater Treatment: Wastewater is repeatedly used through three-stage sedimentation technology. The precipitated sludge is further utilized by carbonization treatment.

Energy Saving Design

  • Frequency Conversion Control: The driving mechanism of the main furnace and the combustible gas induced draft device both use frequency conversion technology. Users can adjust the appropriate operating parameters according to material characteristics, ambient temperature, heating temperature, processing volume, etc. By creating the best reaction conditions, the reaction efficiency can be improved.
  • Double Return Heating Structure: The main machine adopts an inner and outer double-layer cylinder double return heating structure. The outer layer deeply heats the material, and the inner layer uses waste heat to dry the material. This structure ensures that the material does not come into contact with the flue gas and is not polluted by hot air. Compared with the single-layer external heating structure, the heat utilization rate is more than doubled.

Intelligent Design

  • PLC Control: PLC control system can realize the automatic control and data monitoring of the biochar machine. It includes various links such as feeding, temperature control, exhaust and discharging. Automatic control can reduce human intervention, reduce operating errors and improve charcoal production line’s efficiency.
  • IoT Control: Internet of Things system (optional) can realize real-time remote online monitoring of equipment operation. Customers can set the warning values ​​and warning strategies of different parameters according to the attributes of each monitoring data. After the warning strategy is triggered, customers can view the fault information of their own equipment.
