Requirements for equipment for pyrolysis of wood

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.

Presentation: The analysis of traditional methods of charcoal production

With the help of this presentation you will learn some facts about the traditional charcoal production.

Types of equipment for the production of fuel briquettes

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.

Comparative analysis of the use of wood and pyrolysis gas as fuel

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.

Types and methods of wood drying

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 use of charcoal as a fertilizer

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".

Interesting facts about charcoal

All people from time immemorial were known for the rich potential of charcoal. A lot of legends and stories associated with charcoal. Approximately 6,000 years ago, charcoal was the main fuel for remelting of copper. He was in great demand all over the world. Charcoal has become very popular thanks to the huge forests of America. Such famous people as Henry Ford, Stafford Orin made a huge contribution to methods of charcoal production. 

Modern equipment for 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.

Primary products of wood pyrolysis

Gaseous, liquid and solid products of wood pyrolysis consist of three main elements: carbon, hydrogen and oxygen. They may also contain a small amount of nitrogen-containing substances.

Indicators of charcoal quality

Good charcoal should be strong shiny black material, have few radial cracks and make a ringing sound, when one taps on it. Also it should be easy to burn and burn without odor and smoke. The wood structure is preserved in high-quality charcoal. Annual layers should be clearly visible in the ends of the pieces of charcoal, especially in coniferous charcoal.
