Iron Powder Briquetting


The iron powder high-pressure briquetting machine is a type of product newly developed according to the collection and reuse of metallurgical dust. This machine can mainly suppress various iron powder, mineral powder, iron oxide scale, steel slag and so on.

Iron Powder

In the past, most of the powder in the metallurgical industry was abandoned or changed to other uses, resulting in a great waste of resources. With the increasingly tight resources and energy, the utilization of powder in the metallurgical industry has received more and more attention.

Benefits of iron powder briquetting

Improved Handling: Briquettes are easier to handle, transport, and store compared to loose iron powder, reducing the risk of material loss.

Reduced Dust: Briquetting minimizes dust generation during handling and transportation, leading to a cleaner and safer working environment.

Efficient Smelting: Briquettes can be directly used in iron and steelmaking processes, providing a more controlled and efficient method of introducing iron into the furnace.

Resource Recovery: Iron powder briquetting contributes to the recovery and reuse of iron-rich materials, promoting resource sustainability.

Key points on briquetting

1. The material particle size shall be 90-260 mesh.

2. High hardness impurities are not allowed in the material. Otherwise, the surface of the roller shell will be damaged.

3. The feeding of the ball press machine must be uniform and timely, and a screw feeder with adjustable speed should be adopted.

4. Observe the amount of material returned by the ball press and adjust the supply of new materials.

This ball press is widely used in refractory, power plant, metallurgy, chemical, energy, transportation, heating and other industries. The final briquettes pressed by iron powder ball machine is energy-saving and environmentally friendly, easy to transport, improves the utilization of waste, and with good economic and social benefits.

Iron powder briquetting process

Iron Powder Collection: The starting material is iron powder, which may be a byproduct of various processes such as grinding, milling, or other iron-producing operations.

Drying (Optional): If the iron powder contains moisture, it may undergo a drying process to reduce the moisture content. Low moisture content is generally beneficial for efficient briquetting.

Mixing with Binders (Optional): The iron powder may be mixed with binders, which are substances that help hold the particles together during and after the briquetting process. Common binders include starch, clay, or other adhesive agents.

Briquetting Machine: The mixture of iron powder and binders is fed into a briquetting machine, which exerts pressure on the material to form compact and uniform briquettes. The machine may have specific dies or molds to shape the briquettes.

Cooling/Curing (Optional): The formed briquettes may be allowed to cool or cure, depending on the type of binder used. This step helps solidify the briquettes and improve their strength.

Storage and Transportation: The finished iron powder briquettes are ready for storage or transportation. Briquettes are more convenient to handle and transport than loose iron powder.
