Briquetting is the transformation of a powdery or granular product into a larger, more convenient size. This is accomplished by compacting the product with a roll press, sometimes in the presence of a binding agent.
The material is fed between counter rotating rolls, each of which has half of the desired briquette shape. As the rolls come together, the two halves unite and through extreme pressure, the briquette is formed.
The briquettes can be produced with high or low pressure and can undergo mechanical or thermal treatment according to the characteristics of the processed material, the binder used, and the desired end product.
- Capacity: 100 lb/hr – 100 TPH
- Double-output gear box and internal gear couplings for preventing misalignment caused by traveling roll movement
- Optional hinged frame for ease of maintenance
- Optimized feed system
- Heavy-duty frame constructed to withstand high pressure operation

What Can Briquetting do for Your Material?
Briquetting, like all types of agglomeration, offers a variety of benefits. Among them, briquetting allows you to:
- Reduce Volume
- Stabilize Mixtures During Handling
- Eliminate/Reduce Dust Problems
- Control Hardness
- Reduce Packing, Storage and Transport Costs
- Improve Product Performance
- Improve Handling
