Roll-press briquetting: Compacting fines to reduce waste-handling costs
Compacting dust and waste fines into dense briquets can not only solve your plant's waste disposal problems but provide real economic and environmental benefits.
Problems with bulk waste fines disposal are a fact of life in most bulk solids plants. An increasingly common way to reduce these problems and related waste-handling costs is to recycle the waste fines as dense, easily handled briquets. But deciding whether this option makes sense is complicated by economics: When does it pay to make a big change in your bulk waste disposal operations? What variables should govern this decision? As a plant manager or owner, how can you justify an investment in the new equipment this change will require?
