There are many advantages to using MDF dust as a raw material for briquetting. A briquetting line will make it easier for manufacturers to dispose of their dust material safely and cheaply compared to the traditional ways of dust disposal. These advantages are similar, whether your production is large- or small scale. Some advantages of the MDF solution from C.F. Nielsen are:
MDF is a widely used material in the production of boards, kitchen cabinets, furniture, doors, architraves and skirting etc. The processing of MDF into finished products generates a lot of dust through sanding, cutting and other treatment, even in smaller productions. These very fine dust particles may also cause many challenges at smaller productions. The risk of dust explosions and health risks for workers in the production does not disappear with smaller scale production and dealing with waste and dust may be expensive and complex in a medium to small scale facility.
MDF dust usually comes with a high cost for disposal as well as transport. This cost can put a significant impact in the bottomline for medium to small manufacturers. Converting this expense into an income generating product, may have a significant impact on the total economy. As a medium to small-scale manufacturer it is also possible to convert MDF dust and offcuts to fuel briquettes for industrial use.
Other types of dust such as sanding dust, filter dust and small fines create similar problems to those of MDF dust because of the fine raw material. These types of dust can also be compressed into fuel briquettes at a smaller scale from under 800kg/h - with a level of dust and other waste from 500 tons per year we offer briquettings solutions for your production.
What characterizes many of the wood-based dusts is their low moisture levels, which often ranges from 2% - 7%, which requires addition of water. If water is not added to the raw material, the danger of sudden MDF explosions is significantly higher. Our briquetting systems for producing under 800 kg/h combined with mixers offers both standard and customized solutions for customers who want to avoid dust problems. We can help our customers to turn their dangerous waste into a densified product that can easily be stored, transported and used for fuel. The bulk density is increased to 500-600 kg/m3 through the briquetting process, turning the dust into valuable fuel. This minimizes storage and makes transport and feeding into a boiler much easier and far more economical.
At C.F. Nielsen, we are experts in briquetting, and we pride ourselves in gaining knowledge about many types of raw materials for briquetting. Also, we strive to produce solutions that can handle many different types of raw materials with profitable results for our clients, including clients with smaller to medium sized productions.
We offer several presses that are applicable for a production of MDF briquettes.
