Metal Scrap Processing and Fluid Recycling - Complete, Custom Systems

PRAB engineers and builds equipment solutions for the metalworking industry to increase scrap value and recover valuable fluids. Manufacturers use our equipment to move their scrap then shred/crush it to reduce its volume. The system separates metal from fluid and collects the chips for storage or recycling (returning to your scrap dealer). The recovered fluids are then filtered for reuse or disposal.

Each customer receives individual attention to help them increase productivity, get more value from their metal scrap, use less floor space for moving and storing, and create a cleaner, safer working environment.

Each solution is custom-built to your process and requirements.

Our experienced sales and engineering staff collect vital application data BEFORE building the best solution, considering:

  • Material Type
  • Fluid Type
  • Desired level of automation
  • Amount of solids
  • Regular throughput
  • Footprint and plant layout
  • Scrap dealer pricing
  • Regulatory compliance issues

Our products are guaranteed to achieve the results you specify because we test your material in our test lab, filled with the actual equipment being recommended. We back it up with 24/7 support to keep your equipment working for you around the clock.

Complete metal scrap size reduction and fluid separation systems for any volume of turnings and flowable chips.Components and layout are engineered to application and requirements.


Common Configurations

Uses two opposing hydraulic cylinders to press chips, loose turnings and swarf into near solid, dry briquettes. Briquettes- or scrap pucks, are easy to re-melt, transport or store, giving you more floor space, optimized container fill, cleaner shop and more value from a scrap dealer.

Dualpak™ briquetting machines compact a variety of machining metals, including aluminum, steel, cast iron, copper, brass, titanium, magnesium and more.

  • Pucks are easy to re-melt, transport and store
  • 9 models available with capacities from 125 to 14,000 lbs/hr
  • Easy to operate
  • Durable construction
  • Smooth, quiet, consistent operation

Centralized coolant recycling system remove tramp oils and suspended solids from contaminated coolant, controls bacteria and can adjust fluid concentration for fluid recovery.

Each turnkey system is designed for easy installation, quick start-up, and simple, efficient operation.

  • Typical payback in 6-9 months
  • Throughput of 300 to 1,500 gal/hr
    (Larger capacity systems available)
  • Extend tool life
  • Remove tramp oils as low as .1%
  • Reduce new coolant purchases up to 75%

The perfect fluid filtration system depends on a variety factors including volume of fluid per hour, makeup of your dirty fluid, desired makeup of clean fluid and needed level of automation. Our team can use our wide array of filtration technologies to build the right solution that is guaranteed to deliver.
