The technological line to the briquetting straw LTBS

Blog page

Technical features:

For all those with good access to straw and hay who also want to begin producing ecological fuel for power stations and co-generation plants, we offer the LTBS Technological Line. Unlike the competition, our technology enables production of both briquettes and pellets using the same units, and is characterized by greater production efficiency while reducing
operational costs.

The LTBS Line is composed of a series of machines and equipment comprising two modules: grinding and briquette forming. The process consists in the grinding of raw material in the form of pressed straw and its forming into briquettes. The raw material produced is then sold to the energy industry, as well as to individual customers. The line’s capacity is from 1.2 to 1.8 t/h for grey straw without impurities and foreign bodies and with a moisture level of 14% to 20%. The final result of LTBS production is a briquette of 70mm diameter or a pellet of 22mm diameter, of variable length from an intake load of approx. 450 kg/m3. The total installed power in the LTBS units is approx. 250kW with energy requirements of approx. 175 kW.

URSUS S.A. conducts direct sales of the presented LTBS Technological Line for Straw Briquette Production. One of the main clients for this technology, apart from numerous individual customers, is Bioenergia Invest S.A., a subsidiary of URSUS S.A., which is presently using 9 LTBS lines alongside 12 lines with older technology. The basis of Bioenergia Invest S.A.’s activities is the purchase of LTBS technology, leasing of the units to potential clients, receipt of the briquettes.

Advantages of the technology:

  • High efficiency – confirmed by tests conducted on LTBS lines presently
    in use.
  • Automation – LTBS is partially automated and adapted to continuous
  • High quality components – LTBS components are sourced from worldclass
    suppliers of motors and engines, gears, bearings, electronics, etc.
  • Long-lasting work tools – highly abrasion-resistant steel.
  • Universality of the unit – enables work with various forms of biomass
    and also makes it possible to adapt quickly to the requirements of the
    energy market.
