AIRTIGHT AP briquetting presses are a great way to reduce the volume of your waste. They use hydraulic pressure to compress the materials into solid briquettes.
The material to be compressed is mixed by a continually turning tube extractor in the container and then fed to the pressing mechanism by a discharge screw conveyor.
The loose material is then subsequently pre-compressed. Then by means of pressure from the press cylinder the pre-formed briquette is transformed into its final, highly compacted, form. When the programmed pressure value has been reached the tongs open and the prepared briquette is pushed out.
The AP system is fully automated and will automatically adjust the feed in rate to the press chamber depending of the material, adjusting for different compression rates in materials. This way you achieve consistently formed briquettes. This is important
Briquetting machines are a type of product where quality and reliability really does matter. Lesser machines require more maintenance and will often not produce sufficient pressure to form solid briquettes of materials such MDF.
Airtight Solutions have experience with briquetting systems with some of Australia’s large manufacturers. Call us for some expert advice on what can be achieved for you.
