Hydraulic briquetting presses APC/APV by AL-KO

Briquetting presses compact extracted materials, such as chips and dust, into briquettes. Not only does this significantly reduce the volume of the materials – up to 90 per cent, depending on the material. It also removes loose particles from the extraction system, reducing the risk of fire and explosion. The briquetting presses are tailor-made for the central filter systems and clean air dust extractors from AL-KO Extraction Technology.

Operating principle

In the case of high-volume material, AL-KO briquette presses are the ideal supplement to pure air dust extractors and stationary extraction systems from AL-KO. The briquette presses are mounted in place of collecting containers under the filter unit. The separated material is compressed, reducing it to a fraction of the original volume instead of simply collecting it. The pressed material is discharged in briquette form for further use.

Your benefits
  • Uninterrupted operation of the extraction system, since no collecting containers have to be emptied
  • Briquettes are reusable, depending on the material, for example as fuel
  • No loose material in the extraction system, therefore reducing the risk of fire and explosion
  • For extraction of wood, plastic, composites, metal and similar materials
  • For large quantities of dust and swarf
  • For use with AL-KO dust extractors (APC) and stationary systems (APV)
Options & variants
  • Oil warming for hydraulic oil
  • Oil cooling
  • Low oil circuit breaker
  • Transport tubes for briquette discharge
