Biomass Briquette Systems BP‐400 is a single 3” diameter hydraulic briquette press. The BP‐400 comes complete as shown in the picture above, with the main control panel and cooling fan. A PLC controls the operation of the machine, starting with the speed and timing of the feed augers. The hydraulic pack uses one (1) 20—HP motor.

Being able to control auger speeds gives the machine flexibility to run different feed stocks and produce different length briquettes.
