How Coconut Shell Charcoal Is Made?
There are basically 8 steps to take before you receive high quality coconut shell charcoal. The 8 steps are:
The production of coconut shell charcoal begins with the process of collecting coconut shells from various sources, especially among coconut milk production activities.
Usually coconut shells are dried so they will directly to be processed into coconut shell charcoal. If the coconut shell is wet or damp, the Charcoal Vendor’s will first dry under the sun.
To convert coconut shell into coconut shell charcoal, the chemical process involved is carbonisation. There are 2 approaches to carbonisation, the direct method and the indirect method.
Direct methods are like using drum kiln, brick kiln and pit kiln. With these method, after all the shells are burned into the charcoal. Then, the kiln will be closed to prevent the presence of oxygen from continue burning the charcoal to ash. The best thing about these method is that the setup costs are relatively lower.
The indirect method is like using a retort of brick or steel. Retort can be operate batch by batch or continuously. The best thing about this method is that the fuel used is syngas that was generated from coconut shell biomass itself during the carbonisation process and the setup cost was very high.
The ideal temperature to convert coconut shell into a coconut shell charcoal was from 450°C to 550°C.
All prepared charcoal will be cooled naturally without watering. This is to ensure that the charcoal produced does not contain unacceptable levels of moisture.
All the charcoal that is ready goes through the filtering process. This is to ensure that the charcoal is clean from any impurities such as incomplete carbonisation, husk charcoal, foreign matter such as stone, wood, iron and various wastes.
