High Quality Briquette Press

At C.F. Nielsen, we offer top-rated briquetting machines that can transform various types of waste into valuable resources. Our briquette presses are designed to handle wood, agriculture, and other residues, making them suitable for a wide range of industries.

Our briquette presses are known worldwide for their exceptional performance and reliability. With our advanced technology and innovative designs, we provide efficient and sustainable solutions for waste management and resource utilization. 


New addition to the C.F. Nielsen product range

C.F. Nielsen now offers the new BPE Shimada Extruder Briquetting Press to complement the product range of mechanical and hydraulic briquetting presses. You are able to learn more about the about the BPE Shimada here.

Different Types of Briquetting Presses

We have three main types of briquetting presses available at C.F. Nielsen:

Mechanical Briquetting Presses

Mechanical presses are used for larger-scale installations, ranging from 250 kg/h up to 3500 kg/h for single line installations, depending on the raw material. Our mechanical briquetting presses are very versatile and can produce briquettes in various forms and shapes. The mechanical briquette press is built like an eccenter press, meaning, a constantly rotating eccentric connected to a piston, is pressing the raw material through a conical die. The versatile nature of the mechanical press makes it suitable for both consumer briquettes and industrial briquettes.

Extrusion Briquetting Presses

The extruder briquetting press is specialized in producing very dense biomass briquettes. Extrusion presses are a bit more delicate in terms of the raw material, as they require a moisture content between 6-8% and particles between 2-6mm. With the right raw material, the extruder press produces very dense and strong consumer briquettes suitable for fireplaces and wood burning stoves. The high density also enables the briquettes to be carbonized. Our extruder presses operate with a capacity of approximately 500 kg/h.

Hydraulic Briquetting Presses

The hydraulic press is suitable for making briquettes from both biomass, metal, and numerous other residues. Our parent company, RUF Maschinenbau in Germany, manufacturers the hydraulic presses with a machine capacity ranging from 30 kg/h up to 1500 kg/h. RUF offers two different compression techniques: the form press and the shutter press. The rectangular RUF briquette are popular all over the world as a sustainable, high-quality fuel.

Benefits of Using a Briquette Press

Using a briquetting press from C.F. Nielsen offers several benefits:

  • Reduction of waste volume: By compacting the waste, briquette presses significantly reduce the volume of waste materials, making it easier to handle and transport.
  • Resource utilization: The briquettes produced can be used as a valuable fuel source or raw material in various industries, reducing the dependency on fossil fuels and promoting sustainability.
  • Cost savings: By converting waste into briquettes, companies can reduce disposal costs and potentially generate revenue by selling the briquettes.
  • Eco-friendly solution: Briquetting is an environmentally friendly method of waste management as it reduces greenhouse gas emissions and promotes a circular economy.
  • Improved efficiency: Our briquette presses are designed to optimize the briquetting process, ensuring high productivity and efficiency.

By investing in a briquette press from C.F. Nielsen, we offer companies a way to maximize their efficiency and sustainability while transforming their waste into valuable resources.

- Cornerstone for the C.F. Nielsen product range

  • 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

Enhancing Briquette Quality

  • 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

A Danish Collaboration Providing Global Inspiration

As a furniture manufacturer, Carl Hansen & Søn produces 4-5 tons of wood residues daily.
This was a strenuous task on both Carl Hansen & Søn and the environment, costing both money and unnecessary carbon emissions from the trucks.
