What are Briquette Press Machines Used For?

Our briquette press machines work by processing wood shavings and sawdust into usable briquettes, reducing the volume of waste materials, which can then be used as heat for workshops.

Turn your waste into uniform-sized briquettes that can be easily stored, and even sold to generate revenue. Gone are the days where you keep sending unnecessary amounts of wood, metal and other biomass material straight to the landfill. Your briquette press will save money just by you being able to reduce your storage and handling costs.

Wood and MDF dust can be densified to between 10% and 15% of its original volume using a briquette press; with wood briquettes able to be sold on for use in wood burners. MDF dust can now be recycled in the increasingly important biomass industry. New biomass plants in the UK will accept MDF briquettes to burn, unlike the old commercial incinerators.

We have three types of briquette presses to choose from, based on volume throughput and price:

Value Briquetting Press: This is an entry-level machine with a capacity of 6 to 15kg per hour.

Medium Volume Briquetting Press: A high-quality briquette machine with capacities of 40 to 90kg per hour.

High Volume Briquetting Press: High throughput with capacity of  60 to 450kg per hour.

How to Make Briquette From Wood Shavings

This is a question we’re often asked, and the reality is that with a wood briquette machine, it’s very simple.

Once you’ve collected your wood raw material including shavings or sawdust, you’ll need to make sure it’s air dried. After this, you can simply put your wood shavings into your briquette press machine, making sure it’s not all emptied in at once, as that could cause a blockage.

The end result is uniform sized briquettes, which you can then cool, and pack up for selling.

    Bergmann Direct supply a full range of vertical, semi-automatic horizontal waste balers and fully automatic horizontal balers.

    Our waste balers can handle all the standard materials such as cardboard, soft plastics (shrink-wrap, plastic sheeting), PET bottles, hard plastics, aluminium and steel cans even difficult materials such as RDF which require plastic strapping and wrapping to be compliant.

    Bergmann Direct supply a range of vertical balers. for cardboard, plastic and metal cans. Mill-size balers are ideal for low to medium volumes (0.3 – 1 tonne per hour) of cardboard, soft plastics, PET bottles*, aluminium and steel cans. UK paper mills require ‘mill-size’ bales in order to attract rebates on cardboard. Manually loaded and tied off. Bale pressure up to 50 tonnes. View the Vertical Baler range here.

    Semi - Automatic (Manual Tie) horizontal waste balers.are ideal for larger volumes (1 to 3 tonnes per hour) of cardboard, plastics, PET bottles*, aluminium and steel cans,  where volume loading is required from a bin lifter, bucket, forklift truck or a conveyor. All bales are ‘mill-sized’. The bales are tied off by hand and the bale is fully-ejected before another bale or another material is started. Bale pressure from 80 to 120 tonnes.

    The fully - automatic (auto-tie) horizontal waste balers.is required when volume processing 3 to 16 tonnes per hour. Bales are automatically tied off and pushed out (the bale behind pushes out the bale in front). Feeding is typically by bucket, forklift truck, conveyor or chute. All bales are ‘mill-sized’. Bale pressure from 40 to 120 tonnes.

    RDF is a difficult material which is often made up of small particles of residual waste after the main items have been outsorted. It requires a) high pressure; b) plastic ties and c) bale wrapping. You need a plastic tie facility on your baler which RDF balers.use and you will need a bale wrapper aswell. Feeding is typically by conveyor.
