The charcoal is often perceived as an indispensable tool mainly in those situations when you need to build a fire in the fireplace, to fry a shish kebab on the grill or cook meat on the grill. However, there are much more different ways to use charcoal even in everyday life. We want to present to Your attention five of the most interesting of them.
It is well-known fact that the taste of food cooked on the grill not only depends on various seasonings and marinades, but also on the type of used firewood or charcoal. Today there is a wide variety of charcoal from different species of trees, both in the form of briquettes and in loose form, packaged in paper or plastic bags.
There are many different types of equipment for pyrolysis of wood. Some of them were popular earlier, but today they have already lost their relevance due to the fact that new and more effective equipment began to appear.
With the help of this presentation you will learn some facts about the traditional charcoal production.
Wood fuel briquettes - an environmentally friendly fuel that is widely used around the world for heating of private facilities and in industrial boiler factories.The briquettes are produced using special presses, without the use of binders, the role of which the lignin, released in the process of briquetting, performs.
Pyrolysis is the heating of the carbon-containing raw material with a lack or absence of oxygen. The wood pyrolysis takes place in the charcoal kiln CK-4 EURO at specified temperatures. Charcoal of the required quality and a large quantity of pyrolysis gas are formed depending on the chosen temperature mode.
Wood can have various degrees of humidity. This is due to the fact that it has the ability to absorb water vapor from the air. This property of wood is called hygroscopicity. Drying of wood allows to protect the wood from fungus and biological damage. Furthermore, it is necessary in order to optimize the process of charcoal and Pini-Kay production.
The positive effect from the use of charcoal as a fertilizer for growing crops is known for a long time. The unique properties of charcoal are varied and their complex impact on improving soil fertility cann’t be assessed. At the end of the twentieth century, the attention of soil scientists was attracted by the pieces of the incredibly fertile land in Peru, which the Indians called "Terra Preta".

Such famous people as Henry Ford, Stafford Orin made a huge contribution to methods of charcoal production.
Today, there are several types of equipment designed for the charcoal production using the method of wood pyrolysis – thermal decomposition of wood without oxygen. Some machines were popular previously, but currently they are not used. Others continue to work.
