How To Get Wood Charcoal with A Wood to Charcoal Machine

1. Prepare the Wood

Keep the size of the wood at 5-8mm and the moisture content below 15%. We can offer a dryer and cutting machine according to your needs.

2. Feed wood charcoal machine

Place the prepared wood into the reactor by hand or by an automatic screw conveyor.

3. Starting combustor

Starting the combustion chamber with fuel to heat the pyrolysis reactor for 60-90 minutes.

4. Wait for wood pyrolysis

In the high-temperature, low-oxygen pyrolysis reactor, volatile substances of the wood are released, while the solid carbonaceous part is retained to form charcoal. Charcoal can be collected after the cooling process.

What Wood Raw Materials You Can Collect for Making Charcoal

Raw wood to make charcoal
Raw wood

Trees’ trunk, with abundant wood fibers, is excellent for charcoal production. Meanwhile, the smaller parts such as branches, twigs, and bark can also be collected in large quantities for charcoal making. This kind of wood raw materials usually come from forest farms.

Sawdust to make charcoal
Wood processing scraps

Wood chips, shavings, and sawdust generated during wood processing are low-cost and readily available in substantial quantities. This makes them valuable as charcoal production materials. This kind of wood raw materials usually come from various wood processing plants.

What End Products You Can Get?

The main end products are charcoal, wood vinegar, tar, and biogas. They all have high economic value and wide application. You can find them here:

Efficient/Safe/Eco-friendly – Superiorities of Beston Wood to Charcoal Machine

Why Is It Efficient?
  1. The carbonization machine to process wood employs a dual-layer cylinder body and a double-return heating structure. This ensures that the wood materials inside the main furnace are thoroughly heated, thus increasing carbonization efficiency.
  2. Our system incorporates a rigorous insulation system, ensuring that wood does not come into contact with smoke and remains uncontaminated by hot gases. This design minimizes heat loss, enhancing thermal efficiency to the maximum.
  3. The unique low nitrogen combustion design can increase combustion efficiency.
Why Is It Safe?
  1. The triple-sealing design and closed-air feeding design ensure the airtightness of the biochar reactor.
  2. The automatic igniter with a long open flame device can reduce the risk of manual machine operation by workers.
  3. The explosion-proof device at the end of the reactor prevents big explosions.
  4. The PLC electric cabinet device with an automatic alarm ensures the temperature is within the normal range.
Why Is It Environmentally Friendly?
  1. The charcoal making machine for wood chips will not generate any residue. Because there is no additives and chemicals in the wood charcoal making process, and its products also contain no waste. Our charcoal machines will create more profits even through the smallest scale.
  2. The superior charcoal will not generate the waste liquid because it doesn’t need water in the whole production process, and will never cause water pollution, needless to say, the waste liquid.
  3. The charcoal from wood will not generate waste gas; almost each production part merely can produce steam and a small part of combustible gas, so wood carbonization equipment usually has no air pollution.
