Why Rice Husk Can be Made into Fuel Briquettes?

Rice husk is a kind of agro-residue. Generally, compared with sawdust, agro-residues have poor flow characteristics and have higher potash content and higher ash content. But rice husk is proved to have a good flowability, lower moisture content which makes it an exceptional agro-waste. Moreover, rice husk/hull has a high ash sintering temperature since the ash after combustion contains fewer alkaline minerals. Due to these advantages, rice husks become an excellent choice as raw materials for fuel briquettes, although its calorific value is less than other biomass materials such as wood.

How to make rice husk briquettes

Introduction of Briquette Making Machine

Our briquette making machine adopts large propeller to grind various material, then press them into briquettes. The natural lignin in the material is released by high pressure and temperature. During making briquettes, the lignin as the natural glue to combined the materials. Then High-density briquettes are made. Our machine could make hexagon, square briquettes.
Briquette machine is widely used for processing sawdust, agro-waste, furniture waster. To reuse all the material and make them into briquette as material, could save energy and eco-protection.

Why is the Biomass Briquette so Popular?

biomass briquettes

With the increasing cost of conventional fuel and environmental issues, people have turned to clean fuel and energy for living and production, and biomass fuel is the popular choice. With advanced technology, agricultural wastes like rice husk, rice straw, peanut shell, etc. can be pressed into solid briquettes. Biomass Briquette is sought after not only because of its eco-friendliness but also the ready-to-get raw materials.
1. Featured by high heating value, small volume, easy combustion, convenient storage, and transportation.
2. Through the burning experiments, the indexes of smoke dust emission remained ash and other pollutants have achieved the EU standard.
3. It can totally replace wood, coal, fuel oil, liquefied petroleum gas, etc. which are widely used in home heating, cooking stoves, industrial boilers, biomass power plants, etc.
