The BP 4000 is a heavy built medium size mechanical briquette press for professional manufactures. The press is equipped with an advanced control system that allows internet access. It is possible to monitor, operate or search for failures and even to reprogram the PLC-function via an internet connection. All operation texts and failure notices can be shown in up to 16 languages. The log function is an important tool for analyzing and improving the briquetting process.
The BP 4000 is a strong press with a sturdy housing made of high tensile steel and fixed on heavy steel reinforced concrete foundation which secures a quiet and safe operation with extremely low vibration level.
It is a very reliable briquette maker with a capacity up to 750 kg/h and produces a briquette with a diameter of 60 mm. It is especially suitable for production of industrial briquettes from dust like MDF, but also for a smaller consumer wooden log.
If the raw material changes, for example during the different seasons of the year, it is possible to adjust the compression of the briquette to a certain extent with this option. The system is manually operated. The system cannot work with the automatic start.
The function will start and stop the press depending on raw material availability and is ideal for industrial plants with limited silo capacity. The function is also needed for remote start/stop of a connected saw.
BBCS = Basic Briquetting Control System - Recommended for industrial briquetting lines. Operator interface is through a 5.7" touch screen display, with multi-level access control, to ensure that the right parameters are accessible to the right user. The system includes many special features, and is the sum of CFN´s decades of experience in briquetting.
Briquette Divider - For production of short briquettes with a length of 25-75 mm.
Cooling lines route the briquettes from the press to the designated storage area, or to the next machine in the process (for instance a briquette saw), while allowing the briquette string to cool under pressure. For industrial lines, a minimum length of 15 meters is reccomended, while 30 meters is recommended for consumer lines. Maximum length is around 50 meters. Bends with radius 1.5 or 3 m. can be incorporated in the design.
Cover for cooling lines (for outdoor use only). Protects the briquettes against rain and snow. Easy to install, tarp-based construction, fixed with stainless steel clips.
The control system can be connected to a SCADA system. A standard data-set with details on operation, is made available for pick-up in a data field in the Siemens PLC. Not available for UBCS.
For hardwood- and consumer briquettes/logs and for pressing abrasive raw material like straw and MDF. The die temperature is thermostatically controlled, based on user set point.
Frequency controlled dosing screws for extra presses (L= max 2,5m).
Level sensors - for mounting in the dosing silo or larger storage silo. The sensors are a rotary type, which gives potential free signals. Needed in connection with automatic start/stop function of the press. We also offer an ultrasound type as alternative.
Mechanical "Puck-maker" for short industrial briquettes (L = 10-30mm). The puck-maker is a mechanical device that is normally installed at the end of the cooling lines.
It is recommended to install a clip-slide after the puck-maker.
Mixer type 200 - for one press (BP2000-BP4000) including sub frame. For mixing water or any additives with the raw material prior to pressing. Often used for adding and mixing water with MDF and other low-moisture raw materials.
Oil and PLC warming unit is needed if temperatures gets below 15+ degr. C.
Oil cooling unit is recommended for all models, and especially for operation in + 45 degr. ambient temperatures and in rooms with lack of ventilation. Will increase lifetime and reduce maintenance costs.
Pneumatic briquette breaker with adjustable length - Length from 15 mm.
Access includes a special VPN-module, which automatically establishes a connection to our service department, based on either a LAN cable, Wi-Fi signal or 3G USB stick (whichever is available on site). Not available for UBCS.
Switch track 1-3 lines. This is a manually operated switch system that allows you to direct the briquettes to up to 3 different locations. The press needs to be temporarily stopped or idled for shifting from one track to the other.
UBCS - Unit Briquetting Control System - for very simple briquetting operations.
Water supply for mixer - to increase moisture content in dry material.
