The high capacity briquetting machine ensures the production of 1000-2000 kg consumer logs per hour. This is a profitable solution for high output companies with large amounts of raw waste material.
The briquette press produces each consumer wood briquette with high density, ranging from logs with a diameter of 90 mm with or without a centre hole to 75x75 mm squared briquettes. The 90 mm is the best selling log made with a mechanical briquette machine, ensuring a favorable market potential.
The double infeed system combined with a large main motor and a unique control system, makes it possible to produce a plain log without curves, with high density ranging from 1,0-1,2 with the exact same weight per briquette. The length of briquettes can vary from 200 to 300 mm in diameters of 90 mm. Most common packing sizes are shrink wrapped in packages of 10 kg.
The high capacity combined with remote access secures high efficiency and stable up-time, giving you full control of your production. The heavy-duty press, the control system and the fact that the press is easy to service, makes it possible to produce marketable briquettes 24/7. The Siemens PLC control system is user-friendly and has a logging function, which makes it possible to optimize your production. The control panel can be accessed remotely, allowing you to control the production fully, anytime

Most consumer logs are made from wood-based raw materials; however, there are few exceptions – Miscanthus and wheat straw are some of them. Miscanthus is more similar to wood in structure than wheat straw and makes a good briquette.
The company HIT – Holzindustrie Torgau, Germany – is one of the largest manufacturers of Euro Pallets in Europe. They have a high amount of softwood wood waste and they decided in 2011 to study if it would be a good idea to produce consumer briquette
One of our customers for over 10 years, the RICHE-Group – a family owned Belgian wood-processing company, had to rebuild their factory after a fire in 2014. Before the fire they had three different briquette presses from C.F. Nielsen; however this ti
One of our customers in Northern Italy had the special request to produce the best quality hard wood briquettes to be used in the stone ovens in Italian restaurants. We were also asked to produce a briquette that would be unique to the market as well
Over the last decade we have sold several briquetting plants in Russia. Raw material is plentiful in Russia at prices that are considerably lower than in Europe. This often makes it possible to export consumer logs to Germany and combine it with sale
In the U.K. there is a large market for producing and selling bedding for horses. Most of the bedding is made from shavings from softwood. The shavings have to be clean from dust, so the dust is removed during the processing of the shavings.
