Convert waste into revenue with RUF sawdust briquetting machines

RUF offers wood waste solutions for manufacturers across the United States

Do you have a strategy for removing sawdust that adds to your bottom line?

Dealing with sawdust and wood dust is a costly hassle. Sawdust, the byproduct of most woodworking processes, leaves manufacturers and facilities with fine particles of wood everywhere. Flammable and dangerous when inhaled, sawdust has to be stored in your facility—with a multi-step disposal process. But there’s a better solution.

The benefits of sawdust briquettes 

We know how frustrating it is to feel like you’re leaving money on the floor. Instead of dumping sawdust in a landfill, you can convert it into briquettes, which can be sold for home heating and outdoor recreational use. With the growing market for briquette-based fuel, selling energy-efficient and carbon-neutral wood briquettes as a fuel source provides numerous benefits for companies.  

  • Reduce need to store wood waste
  • Remove airborne particles
  • Eliminate costly disposal and landfill fees
  • Generate a new revenue stream from briquette sales

How are Sawdust briquettes made?

Sawdust briquettes are made of two things: sawdust and pressure. That’s it. There are no chemicals or additives, making them a natural product.

Step 1

Sawdust is moved to a pre-charging chamber by a screw conveyor.

Step 2

A pre-charger presses the sawdust into the main pressing chamber.

Step 3

The main pressing ram compresses the sawdust into the mold and forms the briquette into its final shape and density.

Step 4

Sawdust briquettes are pushed out of the machine one at a time.
