Shisha charcoal machine is designed to press all kinds of charcoal powder into hookah charcoal briquettes and hubbly charcoal with high pressure. The industrial hookah charcoal maker uses the newest pressing system, completely abandoning the old molding method of slow material discharging, serious wear and tear, technical difficulties, expensive accessories, low efficiency, and other shortcomings.

Shuliy shisha charcoal machine mainly has four types: the mechanical type shisha charcoal tablet press machine, the hydraulic type charcoal press machine, the rotary hookah charcoal equipment, and the stainless-steel type cubic shisha charcoal briquette machine. Each type of hookah charcoal machine has its own great advantages.

What charcoal is best for hookah?

While there are many types of finished charcoal products commonly found in the market, there are not many types of charcoal used to process hookah. That said, not all chars are suitable for hookah.

The charcoal used to process hookah charcoal needs to meet the following conditions:

  1. High calorific value and long burning time.
  2. Smokeless and tasteless when burning, and less ash.

Through practice, it is known that currently suitable for processing shisha charcoal are coconut shell charcoal, bamboo charcoal, orangewood charcoal, applewood charcoal, lemonwood charcoal, and other fruitwood charcoal.

The common feature of this type of charcoal is that it burns for a long time, and it does not produce any pungent odor when burning, so it does not affect the taste of the hookah.

Shisha or hookah charcoal produced by shisha charcoal making equipment is a high-tech and environment-friendly product, with a beautiful appearance and quick and convenient use. Shisha charcoal is made of selected charcoal powder and binder, and it is full of fragrance during burning with fewer ashes. 

It is a high-quality product specially made for shisha users in Arab countries. Hookah charcoal is a very popular green product with fast ignition speed, long combustion time, smokeless, non-toxic, and no pungent smell.

Shisha charcoal press machine is widely used in charcoal powder forming and coal briquetting, it is the necessary facility for charcoal powder and coal powder deep processing. In addition, the quality of shisha carbon products produced by this charcoal production process is stable. 

Now, in addition to the ordinary charcoal briquettes, charcoal board, and heating charcoal, there are also instant ignition charcoal, shisha charcoal, triangle charcoal, charcoal bar, and finger charcoal in the international market.

How is the charcoal powder mixing formula?

The charcoal powder used in the processed shisha charcoal usually needs to be pretreated, that is, the charcoal powder, binder, and water are mixed and stirred according to a certain proportion.

The formula of carbon powder before briquetting usually contains 3%-5% binder, and 20%-25% water. At present, the commonly used binder in China is carboxymethyl cellulose. Instead of using various types of starch to replace the adhesive, we recommend that customers purchase a dedicated adhesive.

This is because adding starch as a binder to charcoal powder will reduce the quality of hookah charcoal. The processed hookah charcoal has poor waterproof performance, and there will be smoke and odor when burning, and there will be more ash after burning.、

In addition, if the customer needs it, a combustion accelerant can also be added to the carbon powder. The content of the combustion accelerant is generally maintained at about 6%. Common combustion accelerants are methyl formate, n-pentane, ferric nitrate, sodium perchlorate, etc. Customers can choose anyone.

Shisha charcoal press machine working principle

This mechanical type shisha charcoal tablet press machine can press hookah coals by mechanical movement up and down. It includes a main body, motor, inlet chamber, and outlet conveyor belt.

When we can put the charcoal powder into the inlet of this machine, the charcoal powder will be pressed by the extrusion mold which is driven by the motor and the transmission device.

The shisha charcoal briquettes’ shapes can be cubic, diamond, ringlike, rhomboid, triangular form, cylinder, pyramid, convexity, concavity, round tablets, etc. The fineness of charcoal powder is generally about 3mm.

We even can design the lettering on the charcoal briquettes with the users’ company name, brand name, telephone number, etc. The final shisha charcoal briquettes have a high density and good appearance.

Shisha charcoal making equipment is often used in coal production lines. After the charcoal powder is evenly mixed with the corresponding adhesive in the charcoal grinder & mixer machine or double-shaft mixer, it is pressed into a finished product of a certain shape in the machine, and then it is dried in the dryer for packing and storage.

Shisha charcoal briquette machines can produce high-quality shisha charcoal and charcoal for barbecue, very popular in the domestic and foreign markets.

Raw materials for making round shisha charcoal tablets

The raw materials used to make hookah charcoal tablets are usually various kinds of charcoal, such as log charcoal, coconut shell charcoal, rice husk charcoal, fruit tree charcoal, etc. The charcoal can be carbonized using a carbonization furnace. After carbonization, it needs to be cooled to room temperature before it can be further processed into carbon powder.

To crush the charcoal block into powder, we can use a charcoal grinder or a wheel grinder and mixer machine. These two types of charcoal crushing equipment can quickly crush charcoal into fine charcoal powder. Charcoal powder cannot be processed directly by rotary shisha charcoal press, but it needs to be mixed with the binder and water first.

Rotary hookah charcoal machine’s structure

The structure of this new shisha charcoal briquette press equipment is very different from other shisha charcoal briquettes press machines. This kind of Arab hookah charcoal maker is mainly made of stainless steel, so it is very resistant to wear and corrosion.

In addition, the molding die of this machine is not a type that is pressed up and down, but a rotary die, which eliminates the waiting time for mold opening and closing during work, so the output is large.

The Arab hookah coal maker has a large output, so it is very suitable for medium-scale hookah charcoal factories. To achieve continuous production, many hookah coals processing plants will choose to purchase a full set of hookah charcoal processing equipment, such as rotary shisha charcoal machine, hookah coals drying machine, charcoal sorting machine, packaging, and sealing equipment, etc.

Hookah charcoal drying machine

The hookah charcoal dryer has a box-type structure, and multiple shelves can be placed inside. Many trays can be placed on each rack. When drying the hookah charcoal, we can fill each tray on the rack with the hookah charcoal tablets, and then push the rack into the box dryer. The temperature of the hookah charcoal dryer can be set and adjusted. The heat source can choose electric heating, gas heating, and solid fuel heating.
