PRAB DualPak™ Briquetter Animation
Briquetters reduce machining scrap moisture content and simplify handling, allowing shops to get more money from the scrap dealer and to save on coolant. The PRAB Dualpak™ Briquetter uses superior dual-ram compression technology for producing the industry’s densest metal scrap pucks. Pucks are easy to re-melt, transport or store which frees up more floor space. They also optimize container fill and create a cleaner shop. The PRAB Dualpak Briquetter handles a variety of scrap including aluminum, steel, cast iron, copper, brass, titanium, magnesium and more.
Material is introduced to the live bottom feed hopper. Multiple feed augers move material into the feed process. Material is picked up by the cross-feed auger. The cross-feed auger sheers material and feeds it to the incline auger. The incline auger feeds material to the vertical charge augers which meters and controls the quantity of material fed into the compression chamber. When the vertical charge augers reach the full condition, they disengage, and compression begins. The door punch moves in for final compression. The finalized puck drops onto a conveyor, which can be custom designed for the system.
