Introduction of Coconut Charcoal Briquettes
The important raw material of charcoal briquette is coconut shell. And coconut shell charcoal have wide applications in many fields because of its features and advantages. Due to its high carbon content and hardness, coconut shells are an excellent raw material source to produce activated carbon. Activated carbon manufactured from coconut shell is considered superior to those obtained from other sources. They typically have a tighter, more microporous pore structure and tend to be harder, more resistant to abrasion and lower in ash than similar grades of coal-based carbons.
Advantages of Coconut Charcoal Briquettes
Firstly, coconut shell charcoal is completely environmental friendly.It is made of 100% sustainable natural resources thus will ensure the sustainable development. In addition, an important property of coconut shell is that the ash content and lignin are 0.61% and 36.51% respectively. These proves that the coconut shell will be easy to briquette and the products will produce less ash to the environment when burning.
Secondly, the coconut shell charcoal briquettes are very safe to use.
Coconut shell is obtained after the coconut oil and water is removed, so it will contain little moisture in this material, which will make the product very easy to ignite and safe to use. On the other hand, it is safe if you want to cook indoor. Because it doesn’t emit any toxic or sulfur gas.
Thirdly, coconut shell charcoal briquette is made of coconut charcoal carbonized first and then crushed, processed by charcoal powder making machine, it can be made into different shape charcoal briquettes. Coconut shell charcoal has a much higher calorific value than usual hardwood charcoal briquettes, so it can be used both indoors and outdoors. Besides, it can also be used in food industries like BBQ, stove fuel and metallurgy industry.
Working process of charcoal shell charcoal making machine
At first, according to the stipulation, we should install a crusher and dryer as pretreatment devices, which can crack raw material into small pieces whose size should be less than 50 mm and guarantee the moisture of coconut shell is lower than 20%;
Next is the most important step in the whole coconut shell charcoal manufacturing process, the cracked and dried coconut shell will be delivered into coconut shell carbonization furnace by belt conveyor and heated by high temperature. When it reaches the specific temperature, the coconut shell in the furnace will generate combustible gas and charcoal.
Then the charcoal from coconut shell will pass through cooling system to decline the temperature of charcoal to less than 30℃, and after that the coconut shell charcoal will be collected directly; as for the combustible gas, it has played an important role in the whole production process. The combustible gas will be recycled to heat furnace after purified by spray dedusting system, which can not only save more traditional fuel but also can protect environment, and moreover, the whole coconut shell charcoal making process has no pollution, so as to achieve the green production.
The project of making charcoal briquette with coconut shell can not only protect the environment but also will help you to benefit. Using the coconut shell to produce charcoal will reduce the hag of the rain forests.Pleasure to let you know that Dryfree is a trustable manufacturer of charcoal making machine.
