Charcoal making machine plays a key role in the waste resource recovery field in today’s world. It helps convert various organic wastes into a useful product: charcoal. The transformation of resources also provides important support for the diversified development of multiple industries. Charcoal making project is promising for investors pursuing sustainable development and environmental protection. It is expected to bring dual benefits of economic returns and environmental improvement.

What is Charcoal Making Machine?

Charcoal machine can convert biomass (such as wood, straw, nut shells, sawdust, etc.) into charcoal. This biomass pyrolysis machine heats biomass materials at high temperatures in a micro-oxygen environment. After this carbonization process, the biomass eventually becomes charcoal. Besides, the machine produce other by-products during the process, such as wood vinegar, tar, and combustible gases. These products have a wide range of uses. In addition to this, they also have good economic value. The machine can range in size from small-scale resource recycling to large-scale industrial production lines. This depends on production needs and available resources.

Components Composition of Charcoal Making Equipment

The machine consists of several parts. They play an important role in the charcoal production process. Beston’s machine is designed to produce charcoal efficiently.

Belt conveyor
Transport biomass raw materials to the main reaction furnace.
The reactor rotates under the operation of the driving device. The raw materials absorb heat in the reactor. After reaching a certain temperature, it begins to produce charcoal and combustible gas.
Discharge system
Its function is to discharge the charcoal produced in the reactor. It adopts a water cooling system. Therefore, the temperature of the discharged charcoal is lower.
Combustible gas recovery system
It provides preliminary cooling of combustible gases. After condensation, the system precipitates tar and wood vinegar. The purified combustible gas continues to provide heat source for the machine.
Exhaust gas dust removal system
It removes dust, particles and harmful gases generated during the charcoal making process. This keeps the production environment clean. In addition, emissions meet standards.
Additional Component


The crusher is used to break down larger pieces of biomass feedstock into smaller particles before entering the reaction furnace. This helps improve the efficiency of the charcoal making process.


A dryer is used to reduce the moisture content in the biomass feedstock before the reaction begins. Lower moisture levels enhance the efficiency of the carbonization process and reduce energy consumption.

Charcoal Briquette Machine

The charcoal briquette machine is responsible for shaping the charcoal into specific forms, such as briquettes, depending on the intended use. This step is essential for producing uniform and market-ready products.

How to Produce Charcoal: Workflow of Charcoal Machine

Raw Material Pretreatment

First, the raw materials need to be preprocessed, including drying and crushing. Drying is to reduce the moisture content in the raw materials to improve the carbonization efficiency. The raw materials are then crushed into smaller particles or chunks for subsequent processing.


Biomass Carbonization

The pretreated raw materials are fed into the main furnace through a belt conveyor. In this process, the raw materials undergo a reaction in a carbonization furnace in a high-temperature and oxygen-deficient environment. At this time, the reaction temperature in the furnace reaches 450-600°C.


Combustible Gas Recovery

During the biomass carbonization process, the flue gas generated contains combustible gases. A flue gas cleaning system is used to remove contaminants from it, and then the combustible gases are collected and used as a heat source to heat the main furnace.


Charcoal Collection

After the reaction is completed, the biomass charcoal is collected. The machine adopts three water-cooled slag discharging systems. This ensures the charcoal cools down quickly enough. Besides, this process helps reduce dust and particulate emissions in the exhaust.

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 charcoal.
Can the Same Equipment be Used to Process all Types of Raw Materials?
No, the carbonization temperatures and materials required for the carbonization of biomass, sewage sludge, and various types of garbage are different. It is recommended to use different furnace body materials for different major types of materials to adapt to different temperatures.
How to Make Shisha Charcoal?
We can equip charcoal briquette forming equipment on the basis of standard configuration.
Molding equipment components: buffer silo/twin-shaft mixer/screw conveyor/wheel mill/adhesive feeder/forming machine
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.
