Production process of Binchotan coal

The raw material wood after cutting into the desired shortage will be put into the incinerator. During this time, the oven door was clogged with brick and clay, leaving only the mouth of the incinerator and several small holes to escape the steam. At this time, the firefighters will take turns firing at the furnace door, helping to bring heat and smoke into the furnace. This process completely eliminates the resin, which will be compressed to the full size, helping the coal plant when it is very hard.

After a few days of firing, experienced firefighters will observe that the trees can now catch fire and burn. If the wood can burn, the furnace operator will shut the entire furnace for about 3 days to let the wood burn itself.

This is a very important stage, so only those who have coal burning years of experience are responsible. If the temperature in the oven is too low, the bars will not burn to the required level resulting in poor quality coal, if the temperature is too high, the coal will burn to ash. Workers rely on changing the color of the flames in the furnace to regulate the temperature.

After 3 days, the furnace will completely open the furnace to bring oxygen into the furnace. At this time, the temperature in the furnace is up to 1,200 degrees Celsius, the wood bars burned to charcoal and charcoal is orange.

After the wood is burned to charcoal, the furnace operator will start to scratch the coal. The terrible heat from the furnace forced the worker to stand 4 meters from the oven door while scraping coal out. This is a very hard job that not everyone can endure.

However, coal is considered to be successful and good quality charcoal must meet the specific criteria, in which, the most prominent is the cross section of the bar has to be glossy black, when typing two bars together , they must sound like a tinkling sound like metal hitting each other.
