TH 1200

Square briquettes for ambitious throughputs

The modular design of the TH 1200 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.

Large material hopper for more buffer volume

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.

Non-stop briquetting thanks to standard oil cooling

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.

Convenient operation with advanced Siemens PLC control

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.

Longer briquetting, more pressing cycles with large hydraulic oil tank and large pressing mechanism
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.


Dust-reduced compression for more safety and cleanliness
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.

Maximum variability thanks to modular design

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.

Even higher throughput rates with the Duo, Trio or Quattro version

To further increase the throughput and availability of a machine, the TH 1200 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.

Rectangular briquettes for sale quality

The TH 1200 is the only machine with clamping technology that produces rectangular briquettes measuring 150 x 60 mm with variable lengths. These can be ideally stacked, packaged and then sold at a profit. The voluminous hydraulic unit allows multi-shift operation with high throughput rates. Highly compressed briquettes are produced with the aid of a generously dimensioned clamp cylinder.
