Turning & Chip Processing Systems

Complete, Tailored Metal and Fluid Processing Systems

Turn your metal scrap and used cutting fluids from a liability into a revenue stream. Your operations run hard and lean. This means managing your process from raw material through production, and to recycle and reuse, is increasingly more important. A complete chip processing system not only automates waste management, it improves productivity, reduces harmful exposure of workers to injury, and reduces environmental and business risk.

The processing of scrap metal begins with volume reduction. The often tightly wound metal turnings that are generated from various machining operations need to be safely and effectively crushed or shredded. To have optimum chip processing the metal must be in flowable, thumbnail size chips. To reach this point, scrap from milling, screw machines, Swiss machines, drilling, and other metalworking operations that produce long, winding metal scrap at high volumes must be reduced to chips. This is why we design and manufacturer Crusher and Shredder-based systems with integral conveyors and wringers for automated handling and fluid separation, filtration and recycling.

Typical Turning and Chip Processing System Types:

PRAB Crusher/Wringer Processing System

Crusher/Wringer Processing System

Engineered system for scrap metal consisting of large bundles, stringy turnings and chips. This system delivers dry shovel-grade chips and reclaims up to 99% of valuable coolants and cutting oils.

PRAB Shredder/Wringer Processing System

Shredder/Wringer Processing System

A system designed for the processing of loose metal turnings and flowable chips. Volume reduction is coupled with fluid separation to produce dry chips and reclaim 99% of valuable coolants and cutting oils.

PRAB E-Series Processing System

E-Series Processing System

A compact, skid-mounted system designed for solid-liquid separation of small to medium volumes of flowable chips. Fluid reclamation and dry chip output make this system ideal for smaller shops. Optional equipment can also allow this fully automated system to offer volume reduction and fines recirculation.

PRAB Guardian Coolant Recycling System

Guardian Coolant Recycling System

This versatile fluid collection point that removes tramp oils and suspended solids from contaminated coolant, controls bacteria and adjusts your fluid concentration. Cut coolant waste disposal costs up to 90% and new coolant costs up to 75% with PRAB's Guardian Coolant Recycling System.
