Scrap baling press
Presses for compressing or briquetting recyclables. For briquetting, there are essentially three different processes that are used. Besides the metal-bar extrusion presses predominantly used, roller presses and a baling chamber process can also be used. In all three processes, the particles are compressed using an external pressure. Nowadays, hydraulic briquetting systems are used almost exclusively for briquetting jobs. The finished briquettes constitute a valuable secondary raw material. In contrast to loose metal chips, for example, briquettes can be melted down again without any problems. When grinding sludges are being briquetted, coolants and lubricants are expelled, which can also be returned to the circuit.
