BrikStar Briquetting presses

for cellulose and metal

Briquetting presses

The storage and disposal of loose dusts or chips is not only expensive, but also dangerous due to the fire load. Depending on the type of material, waste compaction by briquetting offers a volume reduction many times over and thus considerable savings in space and transport resources. In addition, briquettes can be stored perfectly and safely and represent an environmentally friendly way of further processing waste. Hydraulic briquetting presses simplify the safe and cost-effective disposal and processing of your production waste containing wood, cellulose or metal.

Compacting produces high-value material, for example biomass briquettes that are sought after as an alternative energy source; the calorific value of 2 kilograms of briquettes is equal to approx. 0.9 litres of heating oil. Prices for scrap metal continue to rise. Briquetting of metal chips increases the cash value of metal scrap depending on the alloy and the development of steel prices.
