 en The Preliminary Design and Fabrication of a Manually Operated Briquetting Machine
Osarenmwinda, J.O. & Ihenyen, O.I.

Abstract

A ten (10) tonnes capacity agro waste manual briquetting machine have been designed and fabricated using locally available materials. The machine principal parts are made of frame, compaction chamber and base plate . Compaction chamber contains twenty (20) moulding dies each having transmission rod, piston and ejector. The machine can produce twenty (20) briquettes at a time of about 50mm length and 28mm diameter. The compaction pressure and force was determined to be 17.5 KN/m2 and 215.3N respectively. It is hoped that machine will be very useful for small and medium scale briquette manufacturers.
