Continuous Extrusion Bio-Extruder

Our patented technology for wood waste densification is the result of decades of research and testing of various compaction and densification equipment. Traditional machines use a ram piston to compress wood waste into solid logs, but the logs are not heated thoroughly binding only parts of the log causing it to fall apart and burn incompletely. Our bio-extruder pressurizes the wood waste to the core of the log, which causes it to heat to nearly 400 degrees.

This temperature melts the natural lignin in the wood particles, and the pressure causes them to ind tightly together. The log is then passed through a cooling tube and is slowly ejected as new material forms in behind it. When the protruding log is of desired length it is automatically cut off and a conveyor moves it to the packaging area.
