How to Make Coconut Shell Charcoal Briquettes

Charcoal briquettes are alternative fuels made from the results of the combustion process of materials that have a small size / diameter (twigs, powders, flakes, sebetan, coconut shell, pecan shell etc.). On this occasion to make coconut shell charcoal briquettes there are a number of things that need to be prepared, including raw materials, tools and process machines and the science or technique of making coconut shell briquettes.
As an alternative material for charcoal briquettes in the processing, it also does not use additional chemicals which are certainly very safe. When used briquettes also do not remove thick smoke and also do not leave black marks on cooking utensils.
Raw material
• Coconut Charcoal
• starch and
• Water
To make charcoal, there are several processes such as by pyrolysis or by burning through a closed drum. The difference is that the pyrolysis process will produce liquid smoke, while burning the drum is closed, smoke is discharged out.

Tools and Machines
To make briquettes, it can be done manually or automatically, to help expedite the production process, the automatic machine is usually chosen. The tools and machines include.
• Charcoal / Diskmill Penepung Machine
• Dough mixing machine
• briquette and printing equipment
• briquette oven

How to Make Coconut Shell Charcoal Briquettes

• Drafting
Coconut shells are made of charcoal by manual venting through a barrel then (burned) and closed until there is only a small  amount of ventilation on the charcoal barrel. Or by means of the pyrolysis process, where the shell is put into the pyrolysis tank in a closed state, then the smoke is condensed to get liquid smoke.

• Shelter
Charcoal produced through manual combustion or pyrolysis is then stored using a diskmill

• Sifting.
After being destroyed, sieving is intended to produce coconut shell charcoal which is softer and smoother in size. Coconut shell charcoal is sieved with a filter size of 50 mesh.

• Mixing media
The filtered coconut shell flour is then mixed with water and starch glue. During mixing added 2.5% starch glue from coconut shell flour.

• Charcoal Briquette Printing
After the ingredients are mixed evenly, then put in the briquette mold.

• Drying.
Dry it in an oven at 650C for 2 hours (until the moisture content is 7.01% -7.64%), or use sunlight. Charcoal briquettes are ready to be packaged and marketed
