Briquetting Overcomes Solid Chemical Product Challenges
Briquetting, the process of compressing material into uniform shapes and density, is an established manufacturing technique used to overcome a variety of product challenges associated with solid material products. Whether the material is a mineral, chemical or biomass product, briquetting reforms products into a more compact usable shape and provides a variety of economic benefits.
Powder based materials and chemicals often benefit from the briquetting process. The compacted form allows for greater control over the rate of dissolution or burning when compared to the uncompacted form. Additionally, the smaller volumes can mean lower transportation and storage costs. Briquetted material can also give old material new life. Compaction into a briquette means waste material like biomass, paper or polymer foam can find purpose as a new product.
Briquetting can also help reduce flammability issues associated with some products. In their uncompacted forms, many products may have excess dust which can be a serious safety hazard. Briquetting can help reduce the amount of ambient dust to minimize any combustion risk.
At Stellar Manufacturing we help companies with a variety of challenges associated with solid materials. Our briquetting capabilities include integrated 50, 75, 150, and 300-ton compaction systems to produce material for a variety of end uses. Our mixing and compaction granulation services also help prepare material prior to briquetting. Stellar is able to accommodate a variety of customized shapes and sizes as determined by our clients.
