Our briquetting presses make swarf handling easy. They also significantly reduce the space you need for storing swarf boxes; pressed chips are less voluminous than loose ones.
Aluminium briquettes are of high density, suitable for direct charging into standard reverb furnaces. Metal recovery during remelting is excellent, similar to that of ingots. Metal loss is as low as 1 %.
Briquetting of swarf directly upon sawing prevents severe oxidation losses. If swarf is mixed with emulsions, briquettes with a moisture content less 2 % are achieved.
