Briquette Machines

Turning waste products into useable and profitable briquettes

If your construction or manufacturing processes use wood, metals or biomass materials and leave you with residual product with nowhere to go but a landfill, you aren’t alone. The days of your waste materials taking up valuable space, time and resources are coming to an end.

RUF Briquetting Systems is a global leader in industrial briquetting, a process that makes your life easier. But, what is a briquette machine and does it work with my materials? We are glad you asked!

What is a briquette machine?

A briquette machine, or a briquetting press, turns waste material into uniform-sized briquettes that are easy to store and, in many cases, can be sold to generate revenue. You can make your waste problems, literally, a much smaller part of your business, and can improve your bottom line by reducing storage and handling costs and increasing income at the same time.

Briquetting Metals

Are you working with metals? RUF briquetting presses work with a wide variety of industrial metals, including cast iron, copper and steel. Our machines hydraulically press materials so manufacturers can reuse their valuable metals or sell the briquettes. In many cases, such as with steel briquettes, manufacturers realize an increased value with their briquettes over loose chips. Your metals are easier and safer to store, transport and sell as briquettes.

Briquetting Biomass

From wood shavings and saw dust, to various types of straw and agricultural grasses, briquetting isn’t just for industrial manufacturing operations. Whether you are building one-of-a-kind wooden furniture like Walnut Creek, or are operating an agriculture business, managing wood and non-wood biomass waste uses your valuable time, space and resources. RUF briquette machines turn wood and non-wood biomass into briquettes that can be used as fuel in a number of growing markets.

Grinding Sludge Recovered

There is no way around it. If you use processing fluids to manufacture metal products, you throw out your expensive resources with your sludge. With a RUF briquetting system, you can reclaim this valuable fluid and other resources used in your manufacturing process.

A RUF briquetter can recover up to 50 percent of your fluids for reuse! That means purchasing less processing fluids over time, saving your business a lot of money. Manufacturers can also re-melt the briquetted metal or sell the scrap to foundries.
