ABSTRACT
In this article, we will present the impact of two most important technological
parameters (compacting pressure and pressing temperature) on final wooden briquettes quality. Conditions in pressing chamber during densification can significantly impact the resulting briquettes quality which is evaluated by density. In the introduction, we present which parameters have the significant impact on briquettes densification. An experiment results and findings which are showed in this paper, described the detected impact of monitored parameters at densification of pine and also oak sawdust. Experiment was done in our department in laboratory conditions on our experimental pressing stand. By pressing conditions setting we will be able to achieve the suitable briquettes density with respect of characters and behaviors of pressed type of material. We will present also possibility that from experiment results can be designed mathematical model. This model can be used for prediction of briquettes density at various pressing conditions for given settings and materials.
