Reduce volumes of large bundles and stringy turnings. This scrap metal equipment delivers dry, shovel-grade chips and reclaims up to 99% of valuable coolants and cutting oils.
PRAB High Volume Aluminum Systems
Aluminum turnings are one of the most difficult types of material to process, especially in large volumes. PRAB delivers the reliable, durable, and dependable aluminum processing system your operations demand. The skid steer loader feeds wet, stringy material into the hopper of the 6” pitch steel belt conveyor. The PRAB Steel Belt Conveyor carries the material up and meters it into the crusher. The crusher reduces the stringy chips into smaller, flowable chips and discharges them onto the PRAB Drag Conveyor. The PRAB Drag Conveyor transports the material up and into two diagonal shaft chip wringers. The PRAB Chip Wringers separate the coolant from the chips using nearly 700 Gs of centrifugal force. The settling tank captures the coolant for recycling. An integral PRAB Drag Conveyor discharges the settled fines back into the material flow. The PRAB Chip Wringers internally generate air pressure to pneumatically discharge dry chips. The dry chips travel through the pneumatic piping and cyclones to the PRAB Magnetic Separator. The PRAB Magnetic Separator removes ferrous particles from the stream of material and discharges them into a container, while dry aluminum chips continue onto the weight belt. The weigh belt measures throughput of dry material in process and deposits it into a blower. The blower pneumatically transports the chips across the plant to one or more cyclones, which dissipate the air and deposit the chips into storage bunkers.

PRAB Builds Equipment for the Toughest Jobs in Manufacturing and Metalworking
Metalworking operations aren’t struggling to find work these days, thanks to a strong economy and a healthy construction market. Unfortunately, the dwindling number of highly skilled workers with deep industry knowledge poses a more serious problem that must be dealt with to ensure that productivity keeps pace with demand. According to industrial supply company Grainger, 59% of metalworking firms […]
Cutting fluids play a very important role in metalworking by providing lubrication to the working area which decreases the amount of heat generated while cutting—preventing tools from exceeding critical temperature ranges. However, cutting fluid deteriorates over time as it becomes contaminated with tramp oils, metal fines, and bacteria. As it breaks down, it can damage machining tools, pumps, and […]
