How to get Coconut Shell Charcoal

Blog #charcoal material591

After enjoying a refreshing glass of coconut milk, people often discard the shell, unaware of its potential. However, in tropical regions where coconuts thrive, these shells are often seen piled up on roadsides, in bustling markets, and even at coconut processing facilities. Fortunately, these locales offer an inexpensive and abundant source of coconut shell resources.

Coconut shell charcoal is steadily gaining popularity worldwide. As a completely natural and environmentally friendly biofuel, it serves as an excellent alternative to fuelwood, kerosene, and other fossil fuels. What’s more, it can be transformed into charcoal briquettes, perfect for shisha, cooking, barbecues, and even industrial boilers. The versatility and sustainability of this resource make it a winning choice for many.

Carbonize coconut shell to charcoal

To turn coconut shells into charcoal, you can use a carbonizing machine. Durable Machinery offer various types of carbonization furnaces that are suitable for making charcoal from coconut shells. For smaller-scale production, the hoist-type or horizontal airflow carbonization furnace is a good choice. And for larger factories, the continuous carbonizing machine is ideal.

Crushed Coconut Shell Charcoal

After carbonizing, the coconut shell charcoal might retain its shell shape or break into pieces. Before shaping it into briquettes, you need to grind it into powder. This powder is easier to work with and reduces wear on the machinery.

Mixed Coconut Shell Charcoal

Since charcoal powder doesn’t have much stickiness, adding a binder helps it form into solid, smooth briquettes. Common binders include corn starch and cassava starch, both food-grade and safe to burn. Typically, you’ll need about 3-5% binder.

Checking the moisture level is crucial. After mixing, the charcoal should have a moisture content of 20-25%. A simple way to test this is to grab a handful of the mixed charcoal and squeeze it. If the powder doesn’t fall apart, the humidity is just right.

Molded Coconut Shell Charcoal

Coconut shell charcoal can be used for water smoking, barbecue, cooking, heating boilers and so on. How to make different shapes of charcoal briquettes for various applications, please click the picture for more details or contact us.

Coconut shell charcoal drying

After the charcoal briquettes come out of the machine, they’re all wet. That’s why it’s important to dry them before using them as fuel or selling them. There are two main ways to do this. One way is to let them dry naturally in the sun. The other is to use a drying machine. Both methods work well, so it’s just a matter of choosing the one that’s best for you.
