1. What Can You Get in Return?

The first thing you need to know is the end products of a charcoal manufacturing plant. Except for charcoal, you can also get tar, wood vinegar, and combustible gas. Here are the usages of each product.


Biomass charcoal is the main product. Charcoal is a good fuel, many customers buy Beston charcoal machine to make barbecue charcoal, industrial combustion charcoal, etc. Biochar has an excellent thermal insulation effect, it is often used in metal smelting industry to reduce energy consumption. Charcoal also plays an important role in agriculture due to its properties, which can be used to loosen soil and adjust soil pH. The charcoal can be processed into activated carbon with higher economic value.

There are over 300 kinds of chemical elements in tar, which make it an important chemical material. So tar is widely used as waterproof material for its high corrosion resistance and wear resistance. Besides, it is also employed to produce oil paint or as assistant materials for producing ships.

Wood Vinegar

Wood vinegar liquid is widely used in agriculture, forestry, food industry and medical industry because of its excellent sterilization function. In addition, wood vinegar can also promote plant growth, extend the shelf life of food, and more. This natural and healthy fungicide is very popular with customers.

Combustible Gas

Beston pyrolysis oil plant is energy-saving because it is almost self-sufficient by using the combustible gas produced during carbonization as heating fuel. In this way, you can save some fuel costs.

2. How Can Beston Help You Get More Wealth?

Energy-saving Design

Our charcoal machine is fuly automatic and environmentally friendly. As mentioned, it can recycle combustible gas as fuel to reduce your cost. Also, there is a patent technology, namely, the “one-fire-two-step method”, which can make full use of the heat inside the reactor to dry and carbonize the raw material at the same time. Besides, it works continuously to improve the working efficiency without increasing fuel or labor input.

Productive Production Line

As shown in the table, our charcoal manufacturing machine can process 500 to 3000 kg of raw materials. And the output rate of charcoal is about 3:1. It means you can get tons of charcoal per day.

Full Service System

In addition, our charcoal machine is made with top-quality boiler steel and exquisite craft to prolong its service life. The material is optional. You can choose 304S, 310S an so on. Except you can get reasonable charcoal making machine price from Beston, you can also enjoy a one-year free warranty and full-service system during the entire service life.

Charcoal Manufacturing Process

In order to help you to know how to make charcoal, here we will explain the charcoal making process step by step. Below is a workflow for your reference.

1. Pre-treatment

In order to improve the yield of charcoal, the moisture content of raw material should be less than 15%. And if the size is between 8 mm to 15 mm, you can get the best-quality charcoal. We can provide you with the dryer and crusher according to your needs.

2. Carbonization & Discharging

After pre-heating the carbonization host for one hour, you can feed the raw materials into the carbonization host through the automatic feeding system. The automatic feeder is also used in our waste sorting plant. As mentioned, the charcoal making machine is continuous. That is to say, feeding and discharging are happening at the same time. In general, charcoal will be discharged after 15 to 20 minutes. Then there will be combustible gas generated 30 minutes later. And you can reduce or even stop your fuel heating system. Here is a video for your reference.

3. De-dusting System

There is a purification system, including cyclone dust remover, spray dust collector, and combustible gas purification system, to collect tar and wood vinegar. Meanwhile, it can make sure the exhaust gas emission is harmless to the environment.

FAQs About Charcoal Making Machine

What are the requirements for raw materials?

Size: The smaller the feed size, the smaller the gap between the materials, and the higher the quality of the finished charcoal. The optimal feed size is 8mm (rice husk), and a crusher is required when the diameter of the raw material is greater than 2cm.

Moisture: The moisture of raw materials needs to be controlled below 15%. When the moisture content of the material is greater than 15%, a dryer is required.

What temperature can the charcoal machine reach when it is running?

Charcoal making temperature: The reaction temperature of raw materials in the charcoal furnace is different: biomass needs 380-450 for biomass; 500-650 degrees for sludge; 600-850 degrees for solid garbage.

Discharge temperature: After discharging through the water-cooled system, the temperature of the finished product will be controlled below 30 degrees.

Note: During the carbonization reaction of biomass, the higher the temperature, the higher the quality of the finished biochar.

How much charcoal can be obtained per ton of biomass?

Take wood chips, rice husks and crushed coconut husks for example:

Each ton of material with water content below 10% can obtain finished carbon 280kg – 310kg. After removing the water, it is basically maintained at 3:1. Material size, moisture content, reaction temperature, reaction time, etc. will affect the carbon yield.

How much wood vinegar and tar can be obtained per ton of biomass?

Taking 10% water content as an example, the tar produced per ton of biomass is about 20kg-40kg, and the wood vinegar is about 40kg-80kg (the quality of wood vinegar is best at 160 degrees). The higher the water content, the more wood vinegar you will get. The ratio of tar wood vinegar precipitated per ton of biomass is about 2:8.

How much combustible gas can be produced per kilogram of biomass?

Each kilogram of biomass can produce about 2-3 cubic meters of combustible gas, and the calorific value is about 5.15mj/m? (1200 kcal). This calorific value is the calorific value after extraction with tar wood vinegar. If there is no tar extraction, the calorific value is relatively high. The combustible gas produced per kilogram of biomass can generate one kilowatt of electricity. Before combustible gas is used for power generation, it must be purified to meet the requirements of generator treatment.

How long does it take for production and installation and commissioning?

From the date of signing the contract, the production time is 45-60 working days, the installation time is 45-60 working days (excluding foundation construction time), and the commissioning work will be completed within 3-5 working days.

Will the exhaust emissions of Beston charcoal making machine pollute the environment?

The exhaust emissions of Beston charcoal making machine will not pollute the environment! All gases are led by the fan, the fan is variable frequency, and the PLC can automatically adjust according to the actual gas production to achieve the best effect. Beston has set up 5-8 processes to purify the exhaust for you. Beston exhaust gas treatment systems meet EU standards.

How about Beston repair and maintenance services?

Due to the different materials and models of charcoal making machines, Beston engineers will provide training according to the local conditions of customers after installation and commissioning. The training content includes operation procedures and daily precautions. , Beston will also write an operation manual for you (including maintenance matters and how to maintain it).

What are the safety measures of Beston charcoal making machine?

1. When the equipment is working, the equipment is under slight negative pressure (the pressure gauge shows 8mm, which is negligible). The end of the main furnace is provided with an explosion-proof hole, which can prevent the pressure inside the equipment from being too large;

2. The PLC electric cabinet has an alarm device, and there will be an alarm display and an alarm for some electrical failures;

3. There is an explosion-proof water seal at the combustible gas pipeline to prevent the abnormal pressure of combustible gas in the equipment;

4. All pipeline gas directions are led by fans (fans are frequency conversion), and when the pipeline is blocked, it will be displayed on the PLC.
