  • Recover cutting fluid
  • Get more value from scrap include up to 98% dry chips
  • Reduced transportation and storage costs
  • Pre-wired and modular for maximum scrap processing within weeks
  • Weighed transferring for efficient container loading
  • Portability and flexibility to meet changing plant requirements

PRAB’s modular system reduces installation time and costs and provides portability and flexibility to meet changing plant requirements. Large-volume scrap collection and chip processing systems traditionally have taken months to install. Equipment comes in random order, floor layout takes time and labor resources, and electrical wiring and controls need to be installed and programmed. PRAB helps manufacturers overcome these installation delays by engineering and manufacturing full production scale, pre-assembled, modular scrap collection and metal recycling systems.

Advantages of a Modular Chip Processing Scrap System include:

  • Increased metal scrap and fluid value
  • Reduce transportation and storage costs
  • Automatic recovery of cutting oils and coolants
  • Metal waste is separated from spent fluid for recycle or reuse
  • Improved housekeeping and employee safety
  • Complete installation in just a few weeks
  • Material is weighed for efficient container loading
  • Portability and flexibility to meet changing plant floor layout requirements
  • Help meet Federal EPA or ISO 14001 regulations and strict environmental compliance

All PRAB modular chip processing systems are engineered to meet the specific capacity needs of each individual facility and are fully automated to process metal scrap for recycling, collecting fluids for reuse, and weighing material for efficient container loading. Each of the 4 modular sections within the complete system are skid-mounted and pre-wired for quick installation, allowing for maximum metal scrap collection and processing within weeks.

Modular Sections within the system include:

  • Primary and secondary scrap metal separation and process
  • Fluid separation and collection
  • Automatic oiling on wringer system
  • PLC controlled with HMI interface
  • Weighed dry scrap transfer
  • Adjustable/segmented drag conveyor load-out system

Each of the 4 modular sections within the complete modular chip processing system are skid-mounted and pre-wired for quick installation, allowing for maximum metal scrap processing within weeks. Sections include scrap metal separation and process, fluid separation and collection, weighed dry scrap transfer, and drag conveyor load-out.

 

Module 1: Scrap Metal Separation and Process

Includes Feed Hopper Assembly and Screw Conveyor

  • Hydraulic cart dumper allows safe and easy transfer of scrap metal
  • Grate bar assembly separates large pieces of solids or tramp metal from smaller pieces
  • Allows easy side door access to capture larger pieces for rework or recycle
  • Automatically moves smaller solids or tramp metal into a fluid separator

 

Module 2: Fluid Separation

Includes Horizontal Shaft Chip Wringer Assembly and Coolant Collection and Recovery

  • 600G is pulled when the wringer is in full motion
  • Reversing feature on wringer extends service life on screen and bowl assemblies
  • Effectively separates coolant from chips
  • Produces up to 98% dry chips
  • Sealed recovery tank under the wringer captures fluid
  • Pumps coolant to a central collection point for fluid reclamation and recycling
  • Saves thousands annually by collecting and recycling 300-600 gallons of coolant per day

 

Module 3: Weighed Dry Scrap Transfer

Includes Weigh Belt Assembly

  • Processed scrap metal is weighed and metered to the load-out conveyor
  • Prevents over filling of trailer or outdoor containers

 

Module 4: Load-Out System

Includes Drag Conveyor

  • Effectively fills containers or trailers for scrap metal recycling
  • Adjustable/segmented sections provide additional metering of the trailer fill
