Mechanical Briquetting Presses

C.F. Nielsen has the worlds’ largest range of Mechanical briquetting presses ranging from 200 kg to more than 3.500 kg per hour. The presses are sold all over the world for different wood types, agriculture and other residues. Below you can see an overview of the different presses.

  • Mechanical presses are typically used for large-scale installations from some 200 kg/h up to 3.500 kg/h for single line installations, but in principle 2 or more presses can be arranged in groups to establish production centers for a high tonnage per hour.
  • A mechanical press is designed as an eccentric press. A continuously rotating eccentric shaft connected to a plunger presses the raw material through a conic die. In mechanical presses the counter pressure required can only be adjusted by installing a die with a different conicity or different length
  • We market a wide assortment of different dies developed for different woods and briquette qualities. Adjustable dies that can be mechanically or hydraulically adjustable are also available
  • As the mechanical press is driven by an electric motor instead of a hydraulic motor, energy loss in the unit is very moderate and the output in relation to power consumption is thus optimized
  • The operating life of a mechanical press is considerably longer than for a hydraulic press. The briquettes made on a mechanical press can be used both for consumer briquettes and industrial briquettes. The density can be regulated, so that it is high for consumer logs and lower for industrial briquettes
