PRAB Briquetter E-Series Metal Chip Processing System 3D Operation
The PRAB E-Series System provides metalworking operations a fully automated compact, skid-mounted chip processing solution that is proven to increase scrap value by 25%. Here’s how it works: A screw conveyor meter-feeds metal scrap to the system’s conveyor-mounted shedder. The shredder reduces light to moderate wads of turnings with high torque, low speed shearing generating flowable chips at a volume reduction up to 4 to 1. Material then flows through the tramp metal separator, removing occasional solids. Chips are blown into the system’s continuous wringer and tramp metal falls into a separate hopper. The Wringer/Centrifuge uses 600 G’s of centrifugal force to remove up to 98% of fluids, creating dry chips. PRAB’s Wringer/Centrifuge utilizes an exclusive reversing feature to extend service life and minimize maintenance. The metalworking fluids pass through the screen while the dry chips are gravity discharged into the discharge conveyor. Fines are recirculated back into the system for additional processing. The E-Series is designed for small to medium material volumes and can process most machining metal short turnings and chips. The system’s recovery tank captures the reclaimed fluid, where it can be pumped to a PRAB Guardian™ Coolant Recycling System for processing and reuse. The Guardian reduces new fluid purchases up to 75% and decreases fluid disposal costs by 90%. Built to last, the E-Series from PRAB is constructed of the highest quality wear resistant material, features PLC/HMI controls, and is virtually plug-and-play: pre-wired, pre-plumbed and mounted on a skid. The system’s integrated forklift pockets enable operators to quickly and easily set up or move the E-Series Chip Processing System.

For every input, there’s output, and in every process, there’s waste. For metalworkers, waste comes in the form of chips, and other than having them leave your shop in the soles of your shoes, chip handling is a function all shops must consider. Single-man operations or other small shops know that at the base of the chip handling pyramid is […]
