Briquette Machine Manufacturer

RUF (pronounced “roof”) is the North American subsidiary of Ruf GmbH & Co. KG in Germany—a global leader in the development and manufacture of sophisticated industrial briquetting systems for more than 40 years. Leveraging the experience and technological resources of our parent company, we are pioneering the use of briquetting in the United States and North America as a cost-effective, more efficient way for industrial manufacturers and processors to recycle their inorganic and organic residual wastes. Our briquetting systems can accommodate a wide range of residual materials to enhance recycling capabilities, create cost savings, and even generate new revenue streams. Briquetting residual waste is a perfect fit for new and ongoing environmental initiatives, and because most RUF systems pay for themselves in 18 months or less, the ROI can’t be ignored. The quality and durability of RUF briquetting systems set the standard for excellence in residual waste recycling all over the world, and in North America, we deliver that same innovative technology and quality along with superior client service and support that stretches from initial consulting and process integration to on-site implementation and maintenance.

    Making Briquettes

    The process of making briquettes from residual materials is simple.

    1. The material used to make briquettes is transported into the pre-charging chamber by a conveying screw.
    2. The pre-charger presses the material to a controlled density (to ensure consistent briquette size).
    3. The main pressing ram transfers the material into the mold and forms the briquette into its final shape and density.
    4. The reciprocating mold moves sideways and the briquette is ejected by parallel ejectors as a second briquette is formed.

    Note: This principle applies to the mold type press which presses and ejects briquettes in parallel, boosting hourly production capacity. Our slide presses only press and squeeze one briquette at a time.
