The Workings of a Charcoal Making Machine


What is charcoal making machine? Why do I need to know how it works anyway?

It is important that you note it.

The biomass industry is one industry that is taking the world by storm. Statistics have shown that most countries of the world will use sustainable energy gotten from renewable resources like solar and biomass, so getting a charcoal making machine is one of the best investments you will ever make.

You may be wondering, what is biomass?

It means either the total number of organisms in a given area or the total amount of organic matter that can be used to generate power (electricity). It is one of the largest sources of energy in the world, taking the fourth place closely behind natural gas, and it produces about 160 billion tons per year.

Why is biomass energy this relevant?

The world is looking for clean and sustainable sources of energy, so biomass is a very fine option. It is clean, renewable and does not emit carbon and other harmful atmospheric gases. It has a wide distribution span so it can be produced in large quantities, and has no harmful effect on the environment.

The main sources of biomass are agriculture, forestry, and waste from organic materials. If these materials are not utilized properly, they might emit harmful gases and be detrimental to the environment. Note that these materials have low-energy-density, a high amount of oxygen and some volatile materials, which makes it necessary for these biomass materials to be refined further.

So how does the charcoal making machine operate?

It operates using Biomass Carbonization Technology.

What is that?

This is basically the process of using heating shaped raw biomass materials in an environment with low oxygen to decompose it into various products like charcoal, coal tar, wood vinegar and other combustible gases (that do not condense).

The first thing that happens in this process is that the carbonized furnace is heated up through the heat source equipment to a temperature needed for burning or combustion. While this is happening, the biomass material is fed into the inner cylinder of the carbonization machine to dry, and this drying is done by what is called a spiral quantitative conveyor. Thereafter, the raw feed is taken to the outer cylinder that was heated up for carbonization and pyrolysis (this is the decomposition of materials with heat under a chemically inactive atmosphere) to take place. This process now forms different products such as charcoal, coal tar, wood vinegar, combustible gases, etc. The beautiful thing is that each of the products undergoes different processes when formed. The cooling device cools the charcoal for further storage and packaging.  The combustible gases are cleansed by the dust separator and reused to heat the combustion furnace for combustion (note that the combustible gases cannot condense), and the wood tar and wood vinegar are regained by the recycling device.
