Production of coconut shell charcoal

There are many methods of coconut charcoal making, but the most cost-effective method is production by special charcoal kiln using process of pyrolysis which involves burning coconut shells in a limited supply of oxygen. It is important to know that oxygen could destroy shells if the air will not be limited. It should be used clean, fully dried and mature shells in order to get high quality charcoal.
The processing of coconut shell charcoal briquettes includes the carbonization of the coconut shells first and then crushing it to the powder, allowing to manufacture different shape and size charcoal briquettes.
For this purpose, the charcoal kiln and the charcoal powder-making machine are used. The kiln should maintain the temperature of 200 – 500 °C.
Coconut shells are good raw materials to produce coconut shell charcoal. The process of converting shells to charcoal includes removing all the moisture from the raw material in a limited supply of air. It requires a special charcoal kiln to carbonize the coconut shells and produce high quality charcoal. The coconut shell charcoal is widely used in food and metallurgy industries. It is also an excellent raw material source to manufacture activated carbon etc.
