Modular Chip Processing Systems

Large Volume Complete Chip Processing in Pre-wired, Modular Sections for Installation in Weeks

Industrial manufacturing is lean, flexible, and product diverse. Chip processing systems from PRAB are engineered to meet the changes in heavy industrial manufacturing. Large volume chip processing systems traditionally have taken months to install. Equipment comes in random order, floor layout takes time and labor resources, and electrical and controls need to be installed, wired and programmed. PRAB has helped manufacturers to overcome these installation delays by engineering, manufacturing full, production scale, pre-assembled, modular systems.

These systems are:

  • Custom Engineered to meet your capacity needs
  • Modular design allows for complete installation in just a few weeks
  • Modules are skid-mounted and pre-wired
  • Fully Automated
  • Processes solids and chip scrap, collects fluids, and weighs metal scrap for efficient container loading

A Modular system like this one would be used in Automotive/Transportation, Aerospace, Defense, Heavy-Industrial, and Large Tiered-Suppliers operations.

4 Modules in this engineered system

  1. Scrap Metal Separation and Process
  2. Fluid Separation and Collection
  3. Weighed Dry Scrap Transfer
  4. Drag Conveyor Load-Out

Module 1 – Scrap Metal Separation and Process

Feed Hopper Assembly and Screw Conveyor;

  • Hydraulic cart dumper allows safe and easy transfer of material
  • Separates large pieces from smaller scrap
  • Allows operators easily side door access for capturing larger pieces for rework or recycle
  • Automatically moves smaller scrap into a fluid separator

Module 2 – Fluid Separation

Diagonal Shaft Chip Wringer Assembly;

  • 900 G is pulled when the Wringer is in full motion
  • Effectively separates coolant from chips
  • Produces 98% dry chips

Coolant Collection and Recovery;

  • A sealed pan under the Wringer captures fluid from the Wringer as it spins
  • Coolant is pumped to a central collection point for reclaim and recycle
  • 300 to 600 Gallons of coolant per day will be collected and recycled – saving thousands annually

Module 3 – Weighed Dry Scrap Transfer

Weight Belt Assembly;

  • Material is weighed and metered to the load-out conveyor
  • Prevents over filling of outdoor containers

Module 4 – Load-Out System

Drag Conveyor;

  • Effectively fills containers or trailers
  • Segmented sections provide for additional metering of the trailer fill
