Charcoal Making Machine FAQs

Raw Materials

What Kind of Materials can be Carbonized?

Biomass waste, sewage sludge, and municipal solid waste. Biomass waste includes wood, bamboo, coconut shell, bamboo, peanut shell, sugarcane bagasse, olive seed, sawdust, etc.

What is the Requirement for Materials?

Firstly, normally, the feeding size of materials is no more than 2 cm. Secondly, the moisture is less than 15%. Beston offers dryer. A dryer can reduce 30% of moisture. When moisture is more than 45%, two dryers are needed.

How High is The Carbonizing Reaction Temperature?

Biomass Carbonization Temperature
Carbonizing reaction 380 – 450 ℃
Inside the reactor 450 – 600 ℃
Discharging < 30 ℃
Sewage Sludge Carbonization Temperature
Carbonizing reaction 500 – 650 ℃
Inside the reactor 600 – 800 Inside the reactor
Discharging < 30 ℃
MSW Carbonization Temperature
Carbonizing reaction 600 – 850 ℃
Inside the reactor 650 – 900 Inside the reactor
Discharging < 30 ℃

How Many Hours is Carbonizing Time?

Normally, in the continuous biochar production plant, the whole biomass to charcoal process costs 15-25 minutes. For batch machines, the reaction time is 3-8 hours. And the cooling time is about 5-8 hours. The size, dense, moisture, category of materials will have influence for carbonization time.

What is the Consumption of Water and Gas?

Capacity Water Water with Condenser Gas for Initial Heating Gas for Production
< 500kg/h 0.5-1m³ 0.8-1.2m³ 35-50m³ 0-20m³
500-1000kg/h 0.7-1.2m³ 1.0-1.4m³ 40-60m³ 0-25m³
1000-2000kg/h 1-1.5m³ 1.2-1.7m³ 60-80m³ 0-35m³
2000-3000kg/h 1.2-2m³ 1.5-2.0m³ 80-100m³ 0-45m³

Does the Gas can be Applied to Combustion Chamber Directly?

Yes. The gas can be applied to burn in the carbonizing chamber directly

How to Manage Waste Smoke?

Beston machines have three procedures to purify smoke, including desulfurization, water washing, cooling, etc. Purified smoke can be discharged directly. On the other hand, it can provide heat for the dryer, which achieves energy-saving purpose.

Final Products

What is the Charcoal Output Rate?

Take a ton of crushed coconut shell (moisture is below 10%) as example, we can get 280-310kg of charcoal.

What is the Output of Tar and Wood Vinegar?

Take a tons of materials containing 10% water as example, investors can get 20 – 40 kg of tar and 40 – 80 kg of wood vinegar. Larger the moisture is, more wood vinegar investors can get. And the most suitable temperature to generate wood vinegar is 160 ℃.

How Much Biogas Generate in the Production Process?

Investors can get 2-3 m³of biogas from a ton of biomass waste.


How Many Days this Machine can be Installed?

Arrange the Shipment 30-60 Days
Machine Installment 45-60 Days
Debugging Machine 3-5 Days
