charcoal briquette machine


The charcoal briquette machine, also known as the coal powder briquette machine, is a screw extruder machine that compresses the material into briquettes of a specific shape and size.

It can be used to manufacture barbecue (BBQ) charcoal, home heating charcoal, activated carbon, etc. The finished product is smokeless and odorless, has high heat value, and can endure burning for a long time.


The charcoal briquette machine uses excellent anthracite coal or charcoal powder as raw materials, and adopts advanced technologies such as carbonization, activation and appropriate adhesive to process the raw materials into hollow or solid briquettes.

charcoal and coal powder

If the raw material is biomass material, such as coconut shell, wood shavings, rice husk, peanut shell and bamboo, it should be first carbonized by a carbonization furnace, and then crushed into charcoal powder by a charcoal crusher machine, and then pressed into charcoal briquettes by this charcoal briquette extruder machine.

Coal powder or charcoal powder before entering this charcoal briquette machine should meet the requirements below:

Size: less than 3mm

Moisture: around 20%



Charcoal briquettes are usually made from compressed charcoal dust, which comes from sawdust, wood chips, or coconut shells. They are commonly used for outdoor grilling and barbecuing because they burn hotter and longer than traditional charcoal. They also produce less smoke and ash, making them a cleaner fuel option.

Coal briquettes are usually made from coal dust and other additives, such as starch or clay. They are commonly used for heating and cooking in industrial settings, such as power plants or steel mills. They burn hotter and longer than traditional coal, and they produce less smoke and ash.

finished charcoal briquettes

The molds of charcoal briquette machines come in various shapes (see the picture below) and sizes, depending on the specific requirements of the briquette to be produced. Some common shapes include cylindrical, square, and hexagonal. And the diameter range of final briquettes is 3 to 5cm.
