Briquetting Press FOX 80 for woodshavings and other material


Our FOX 80 briquetting press is used to make briquettes with a briquette diameter of 80 mm. With a large press cylinder and a 9.2 kW engine, much power is applied to produce a high quality briquette. When processing wood chips, the briquetting press FOX 80 achieves an output between approx. 120 and 280 kg per hour.

The briquettes are formed and produced in the easy and inexpensive to exchange wear bushings. The front socket of the FOX 80 has a length of 120 mm. In order to keep the wear costs low, the briquettes must not be longer than the wear bushings and therefore the briquette length is maximum 110 mm long. The technical features of our FOX 80 briquetting press is designed according to customer requirements. The feeding process of the material that needs to be pressed takes place by default via a pre-compresser cylinder. The pre-compressor cylinder looks like a drawer. The adjustable opening length of the drawer allows the briquette length to be adjusted. The material supplied through the drawer gives the length of a briquette. The storage container has a capacity of approx. 1.0 qbm and can be delivered in square, round or 12-corner design.

When it comes to control technology, our philosophy is to incorporate only as much technology into the machine as the customer really needs. For this reason, our FOX 80 briquetting press is equipped as standard with a contactor control system. On customer's request it can of course also be delivered with a PLC control. As a rule, we do not use a separate engine for the discharge. We solve the rotation of the discharge energy-efficiently via the hydraulics. Whenever the press plunger presses back, without any effort, it drives the discharge.

The following options can be purchased for our FOX 80 for an additional charge:

Using the level indicator, the machine detects whether material is in the silo of the press and starts and stops automatically. This option is indispensable, for example, for a substructure under an exhaust system.

An enlargement of the precompression slide makes sense when processing light materials such as wood shavings, straw or miscanthus. By increasing the size of the precompression slide, it is possible to produce a longer briquette for light materials than what would be possible with the standard cylinder, because more material can be pre-compressed. The length of the briquettes may still be no longer than the length of the wear bushing.

The transport pipe is a component which is screwed on to the crimping pliers. The transport connection can be plugged onto the transport pipe holder. In this way, the briquettes can be transported from the height of the crimping pliers by the power of the subsequent briquette without further energy input, up to a length of about 10 meters, ending up in big bags, containers or the like.

For our briquetting press FOX 80 it is possible to cool not only the hydraulic oil but also the crimping pliers. Crimping plier cooling prevents the phenomenon of expansion of the crimping pliers, thus ensuring a high and uniform briquette quality even during continuous press operation. In order to be able to cool both the crimping pliers and the hydraulic oil with a cooling medium, a heat exchanger is installed in the oil tank. With a water recooler, water is pumped through the heat exchanger in the hydraulic oil tank and at the same time through the crimping pliers, thus cooling down both the crimping pliers and the hydraulic oil and protecting the seals in the cylinders from overheating in addition to also achieving a better briquette quality.

An oil heater must be installed if the briquette press is to be operated at temperatures below 4 degrees Celsius. Below 4 degrees Celsius, the oil is too viscous to build up the required pressure. The oil heater keeps the hydraulic oil fluid.

Also possible is the delivery of a special silo, for example, to the substructure under an existing suction or to the wheel loader filling system.

For the briquette packaging we offer a packaging carousel. A total of 5 bags can be filled with briquettes. The weight of the bags is adjustable via the height.

By using a special press plunger, endless briquettes can be produced, which can be broken to length with a special breaking channel.

Normally our machines are carefully wrapped with foil before shipping. An elaborate seaworthy packaging for transporting the machines abroad is also possible.
