Is it necessary to add the binder during the briquette making process ?
Many clients asked if it is necessary to add the binder during the briquette production.
If your material is coal, you can make briquette without binder.
If your material is charcoal/iron/manganese or mineral powder etc, we suggest adding 3%-5% binder. It will be easy to mold the briquette and the briquette quality will be good.
For the quality of the binder has a direct influence on the hardness and density of the balls made by the lime briquette machine. Thus the binder concerns the quality of the finished product and the investment of the production cost.
Many binders you can use. Usually, we use starch as binder. Many clients use molasses as binder. You can choose according to your requirement and practical situation.
