The AP Briquetting Press is the ideal way to reduce your waste volume to a compact, manageable form. Using hydraulic pressure, the AP Briquetting Press compresses materials into solid briquettes, starting with the material being mixed in a tube extractor and then fed into a pressing mechanism. This material is then pre-compressed, before being compacted by the pressure from the press cylinder. When the predetermined pressure value is reached, the prepared briquette is deposited.

This fully automated system will adjust the feed-in rate depending on the material, as different materials have different compression rates. This ensures that you will receive consistently-formed briquettes.

When it comes to briquetting machines, quality and reliability are of the utmost importance. Low quality machines will require extensive maintenance and will not be able to create solid briquettes out of tougher materials like MDF.
