For sale: Charcoal retort and hopper / screener

Recommended Posts

For sale, a British manufactured charcoal retort built to a high spec, designed with 2 charge cylinders. Capable of producing 200kg + of high quality lumpwood charcoal per charge. From start to finish, the process can easily be achieved in a working day, leaving the retort to cool for the following 24 hours. The retort has done less than 100 burns and is in good condition but requires maintenance work to fittings.

 

Bought new price: £20,000 For sale: £4,000

 

British manufactured hopper / screener, 200kg capacity, 13 amp plug, electronic scales with adjustable trip weight (press go and the screener will stop once the desired weight has filled your packaging.) Kept under cover from new. 10mm screen fitted.

 

Bought new price: £6,000 For sale: £3,000

 

This is a ‘ready to go’ addition to any arb related business. Add value to your excess seasoned hardwood by converting it into high quality British lumpwood charcoal.

 

Priority given to buyers who want both pieces of equipment.

 

Reason for sale: This equipment has opened up a whole new side to our business. The demand we received was so high that we are no longer able to produce enough and are now solely buying charcoal from other producers.

 

PM for further details. All prices + VAT

The retort looks very interesting, do you have the weight and the measurements for it? Alternatively a link to the manufacturer? Might have to get a quote for shipping to Sweden,, :eating:

Good bit of kit. Are you upgrading or change of direction?

 

It has been a hard decision for us. I started off making lumpwood using this retort and it got such a great response. It was really rewarding making something yourself and having top chefs and 'back garden' users praising it.

 

But as demand increased and we were only able to directly meet a smaller and smaller % of that demand we have had to look for other producers.
