PRAB’s chip processing system is custom designed for on-site remelting of aluminum briquettes.

PRAB’s chip processing system is custom designed for on-site remelting of aluminum briquettes. The system employs a model 24 CD diagonal-shaft wringer to remove water-soluble coolant from chips before they are sent to model MX35-40 Dualpak briquetter, resulting in a dry briquette suitable for remelt. The system is engineered to produce 3.5” (89-mm) diameter briquettes at a rate of 600 lb/hr. (272 kg/hr.). Additional equipment in the system includes a twin 12” (305-mm) diameter screw conveyor with an 8 yd3 receiving hopper; 2.5” pitch steel belt conveyor; tramp metal separator; and 150-gal (568 l) settling tank with fines drag out conveyor.
