6 ton Paper Briquette Compactor

This video shows the results of some modifications I have made today to my paper briquette compactor. I am now able to squeeze a 3kg dollop of paper pulp into 0.9kgs of biomass fuel briquette! I should also mention I use a mesh basket (an old chip basket from a deep fat fryer) to pre-drain excess water prior to adding the pulp to the compactor. This saves time, mess and allows me to get more solids into the compaction chamber ready for compressing. Any questions please ask. I am currently speed drying a briquette for burn evaluation, so I will soon have a burn value of a briquette.
