The chips are ideally mixed, small and big, hard- and soft wood and with a max. humidity of 13%. The result will be briquettes with a constant hardness and constant length. The maximum humidity of the wood chips is limited to 15%.
If the Briquette press should run fully automated, it can be equipped with a filling-level sensor, which starts the press process as soon as there are chips in the hopper and stops when the material is processed.
The KM50 has approximately the double performance of the KM25 and the tamping cylinder is already standard equipment.
The Briquette presses KM are designed for single shift production. If there is a higher production time required, an additional oil cooler must be installed. This will allow continuous production mode.
The placement of the Briquette press can be underneath a bunker, but never inside a bunker or silo. The waste heat of the hydraulic system must be able to escape and fresh air flow must be given. The electrical switch box and the hydraulic system must be accessible for maintenance work. The switch box has to be dusted periodically.
