Swarf Press Extracts Cutting Fluids

Expensive cutting oils and coolants can now be recovered from metal grinding swarf and filter cake using Prab's horizontal screw press. The press reduces high costs associated with the handling and disposal of these hazardous materials.  It also can be used as a stand-alone processor to extract as much as 80 percent of liquids or can be used in combination with Prab's Pacesetter II Briquetter to recover as much 95 percent of fluids and obtain an almost solid metal puck, the company says.
