Wood charcoal making machine is for making charcoal from wood through the biomass pyrolysis process. So it is also known as wood pyrolysis plant. The carbonized wood charcoal consists of a lot of carbon so that it is widely used as a fuel or adsorbing material. With the promising market, wood charcoal making has been popular in many areas for years. However, the traditional charcoal kilns are unfriendly to the environment. That’s why you may need a wood charcoal manufacturing machine from Beston Machinery.

Wood Charcoal Uses
When we talk about wood charcoal, we will think about it as fuel. For example, we often use it for cooking and warming in our daily life. Besides, it is also common for industrial use because its calorific value is higher than wood but with less air pollution. Moreover, it is carbonized charcoal is porous to adsorb liquids and gases on its surface. So it is also applied as an adsorbent in water or gas filters, etc. Especially, some investors further process the wood charcoal to activated carbon for a higher price. Except for wood charcoal, charcoal made from coconut shell and palm kernel shell is also the great raw material for making activated carbon. And it is worth mentioning that biomass charcoal is much better in quality than that made by traditional charcoal kilns.
Wood Tar and Pyroligneous Acid
In addition to wood charcoal, we can also get tar and wood vinegar, which are also of wide applications. For example, tar is an important chemical material with high corrosion resistance and wear resistance. And we can use wood vinegar in food preservative, medicinal sterilization, and anti-inflammatory or the treatment of skin disease.
The carbonization process is exothermic, which makes the plant self-sustaining by using the combustible gas produced. For the Beston charcoal machine, you can stop heating with fuel after about 1.5 hours.
Considering the bright market future, it is wise to invest in a wood pyrolysis plant. Beston Machinery offers quality biochar machines for sale and full after-sales service system. You can feel free to contact us for more details!
How to Turn Wood into Charcoal?
Carbonization of wood is a process with a spontaneous breakdown and increasing carbon in a less-oxygen atmosphere. And during the process, the smoke and harmful content will be volatilized. So the finished charcoal is smokeless and tasteless. The main equipment is the biochar reactor. Let’s see the carbonization process of wood step by step to help you choose a suitable machine.
1. Pre-treatment System
Make sure the water content and the size of your wood chips less than 15% and 15 mm to improve the charcoal yield and quality. We will provide dryer and crusher if you need. With the pre-treatment system, you will save time and some fuel costs as well.
2. Wood Carbonization Process
Before feeding the wood chips into the carbonization furnace, pre-heat it for one hour. The automatic feeder will improve working efficiency. Then charcoal will be discharged after 15 to 20 minutes. After 30 minutes, the combustible gas will be generated and recycled to heat the reactor. The wood charcoal making plant is continuous so that it is very easy to operate. Moreover, our carbonizer machine is famous for its “one-fire-two-steps” design. That is to say, the raw material will be pushed forward inside to be dried first and then carbonized evenly. And then the charcoal will be discharged from the same direction as the feeder.
3. De-dusting System
This is a purification system for exhaust gas and combustible gas. It comes standard with cyclone dust remover, spray dust collector, condenser, etc. We will customize this system on the basis of your local emission standard. Our charcoal plant was successfully installed and run in both developing and developed countries. So you never worry about the environment.
