Technology Of Peat Briquette Production

Briquetting is the process of turning loose material into a solid product by compressing it. Process may or may not involve binding substances.

Peat is a raw material most widely used in briquetting. Peat lands itself well to briquetting as it does not require binding substances. When compressed, density of peat increases which produces adhesion between particles. These internal forces provide the mechanical integrity of briquettes.

Milled peat, as a raw material for briquetting, is characterized by unified GOST 13672-76 standards and other parameters: type, sort, botanical content and degree of decomposition of the deposit, fractional composition, content of freezing and non-freezing liquids, heat capacity and heat conductivity, porosity, tendency for self-heating and spontaneous combustion, combustion temperature. Today's production plants are equipped with modern machinery that is able to briquette all types of milled peat.

Milled peat of even fractional composition, consisting of particles up to 8 mm, is processed into briquettes most successfully. One of the main requirements for milled peat as a raw material for briquetting is the consistency of its quality. Fluctuations in moisture content, ash content, density and contamination of raw material greatly complicate management of the technological process of production causing lower quality and higher prices of the finished product.
