After processing, bagasse has a relatively high moisture content; 45-50%. This means that the raw material must be handled and dried professionally before it can be briquetted. The drying process is necessary to secure a moisture level below 15%, but drying in the sun will not secure the homogeneous fuel necessary for the bagasse to function as a source of energy. The briquetting presses from C.F. Nielsen are excellent for producing briquettes from bagasse, and we offer a complete line concept with down-sizing, drying and briquetting elements. This provides the optimal processing of bagasse as a raw material. Our briquetting presses have the highest capacities in the world, with the largest press converting up to 3 tons of bagasse to briquettes an hour. We deliver a high level of automation, which makes it possible to operate 24/7, 365 days per year.
As bagasse has a higher content of ash and silica, it creates more wear on the equipment than wood. However, at C.F. Nielsen, we have developed special accessories and wear parts, which equips the briquetting press for more wear.
