Wood is the most commonly used material for biochar making. And after wood carbonization, you can further process biochar into activated carbon, BBQ charcoal and shisha charcoal briquettes. But how to make charcoal from wood waste? For this, industrial wood carbonization machines are essential. As a professional biochar equipment manufacturer, we can provide you with solutions for making charcoal from wood chips and logs.

How to turn wood chips into biochar?

If you want to make biochar form wood chips, like wood shavings, sawdust, etc, it usually needs 3 steps:

Wood biomass material drying

When you use wood shaving or sawdust to make biochar, it is necessary to ensure that the moisture content if wood waste is below 15%. For this, rotary drying machine can help you a lot. With 300℃ hot air using, it can dry wood waste materials to 15% water content in a short time. And it can even meet your requirements of producing biomass material with moisture of less than 10%.

Preparing charcoal from dry wood chips

For wood chips to charcoal, we recommend you buy continuous charcoal production equipment. It adopts double-layer design, which means carbonizing wood chips both during feeding and discharging. So only needs 15-30 min, it can turn your wood shaving and sawdust into biochar. In addition, the machine uses Q245 R steel and 310S stainless steel as materials, which can resist high temperature fire. So most wood charcoal suppliers choose it.

Cooling and dust collection

After continuous wood carbonization, there is a water cooling system to reduce the high temperature of finished wood charcoal. Then you can pack it to sell directly. In addition, according to the international environment protection policy, we especially design professional dust collection system for you. It can collect and purify the combustible gas generated by making charcoal from wood to use it as heating fuel for subsequent wood recycling and carbonization.

Can we make charcoal from wood logs directly?

When you plan to carbonize wood logs directly, batch type charcoal equipment is the best choice for you. Feeding wood rods into the carbonization furnace and close the cover. After 4-8 hours, it can finish the pyrolysis of wood. In general, there are 2 types of batch type charcoal making machines in BM.

Economical hoisting carbonization machine for sale

Generally, hoisting carbonization furnace has a higher efficacy. Only by replacing the inner stove, you can start the next batch of log carbonization immediately. This is a machine which consists of inner and outer stoves. The former is where biomass materials are inside. When you fire at the outer stove, the heat will be transported to the inner stove and carbonize wood. Because of indirect contact, there is no material waste and carbonizaton rate can reach 100%.

Easier operation horizontal charcoal furnace for you

Is there a easier operation log wood carbonization equipment? The answer is yes. You can choose to buy our horizontal charcoal furnace. Without extra hoisting system, it can feed wood waste and discharge wood charcoal successfully. In addition, it has a large capacity, which can produce 2-10 tons of wood biochar per day.

Sawdust Briquette Press Machine

How to make wood charcoal into BBQ charcoal and shisha charcoal briquettes?
