Biochar Reactor

A biochar reactor is an efficient device designed for the conversion of organic raw materials into biochar.It offers a high temperature and low oxygen environment for decomposition of organic matter. It can process various organic raw materials such as biomass waste (straws, coconut shells, etc.), sludge (river sludge, industrial sludge, etc.), and municipal waste. It not only reduces waste but also paves the way for resource recovery and environmental protection.

Components of Beston Biochar Reactor and Their Functions

The Beston biochar machine for sale consists of the following designs. These components work together to ensure an efficient pyrolysis process.

  • Casing: It serves as the external shell of the reactor. It safeguards internal components from external environmental influences while providing structural support.
  • Main roller: It functions as the container for loading raw materials. It is the primary area for pyrolysis reaction.
  • Main drive wheel: It is powered by a motor to impel the rotation of the main roller. This ensures that the raw materials inside the main roller are heated evenly.
  • Deputy drive wheel: It assists the main drive wheel to distribute raw materials evenly.
  • Burning room: It is the place where fuel is burned. The released heat is used to heat the main roller.
  • In and out seal head: It can feed the raw material on one side and discharge the biochar on the other side. It improves pyrolysis efficiency.
  • Wind shelter: It prevents raw materials from being contaminated by hot air and ensures the high quality of biochar.
  • Cooling outlet: It uses recycled water to cool down hot biochar for easy collection.

Parts of Beston Biochar Reactor

Working Principle of A Biochar Reactor

  1. Raw material pretreatment: Raw materials are processed through processes such as drying and crushing to meet the feeding requirements.
  2. Feeding and preheating: After pretreatment, raw materials are fed into the reactor either manually or automatically. Then, the furnace is heated to a temperature typically ranging from 380 to 450 degrees Celsius.
  3. Pyrolysis reaction: In this high-temperature and low-oxygen reactor, volatile substances of the raw materials are released, while the solid carbonaceous part is retained to form biochar.
  4. Cooling and collection: After the pyrolysis process, biochar enters the cooling zone and is collected after cooling process.

Carbonization Process Flow Chart

The above steps are essential in the production of biochar. However, biochar production is complex and involves many other processes, such as waste gas treatment and temperature control requirements. It is necessary to analyze and adjust the process according to the specific situation.
