The modular design of the TH Vario plus series allows exact adaptation to suit your existing premises or production conditions. Briquettes can be made from materials such as wood, polystyrene, foam, light alloy, paper or biomass – with throughput rates and briquette quality to meet high industrial demands (precondition: material residual moisture <= 18%). Nearly every individual solution can be achieved, e.g.: Duo, trio or quattro designs to increase throughput rates and availability of the machine. A comprehensive range of accessories is available for your TH Vario solution. It should be noted that the performance specifications of the presses and hydraulic systems have been tuned to each other.
The galvanized hopper, into which the material to be briquetted is fed either manually via a conveyor belt or a screw conveyor, is equipped with a rotating agitator and a discharge screw at the bottom. It is available in dimensions of 1,400 x 1,400 mm or 2,000 x 2,000 mm, depending on the required buffer volume. The machine can be used in automatic mode by means of fill level monitoring.
We manufacture all briquetting press control cabinets ourselves in our German plants in Ilsfeld, Abstatt and Annaburg. For this purpose, we use only brand-name components – and this also applies to our machine control system. The high-quality Siemens PLC control system with touch display optimally coordinates the components with each other, which makes it possible to achieve a consistently high briquette quality.
By using a so-called toggle lever mechanism, a significantly higher pressing force is achieved compared to the classic pressing clamp - up to 1,250 kg/cm2. Wear is minimal, and maintenance requirements are correspondingly low.
Foam scraps from production are first shredded with a WEIMA ZMK 50 four-shaft shredder before being compressed into high-density briquettes with a WEIMA TH 800 S briquetting press.
If required, individual components, such as the tank, the press unit or the oil tank, can be flexibly positioned. We call this option "Vario”. The machine adapts to your individual production requirements – not vice versa. Integration into existing production lines is extremely convenient. This means that all avenues are open to you, even for future optimization.
The larger the hydraulic tank, the longer it takes for all of the oil to heat up. This has a positive effect on the working time of the briquette press. The hydraulic unit is also temperature controlled. All in all, this results in significantly increased throughput due to fast pressing cycles and a more robust overall machine.
TH Standard S machines are equipped with hydraulic oil cooling as standard. This allows the briquetting press to be used for multi-shift, automated operation.
Briquetting is carried out without the addition of adhesives or binders, which makes subsequent use for energy purposes harmless. Thanks to a closed pressing system, the continuous escape of dust is also effectively prevented. This protects your employees and keeps your production halls clean.
To further increase the throughput and availability of a machine, briquetting presses of the TH Standard S series can be optionally equipped with additional screw conveyors and pressing mechanisms. The container size remains the same. This saves space that would otherwise have to be used for another machine.
