E-Series Chip Processing Systems | PRAB
PRAB E-Series Chip Processing System help meet Federal EPA and ISO 14001 regulations and strict environmental compliance.
Health & Safety
The E-Series Chip Processing System allows production to operate in safer work areas by reducing the volume of metal scrap which requires less storage space prior to recycling.
Low Maintenance
PRAB systems have the industry’s leading reputation as being dependable low-maintenance equipment with long service lives.
  • Decreased storage and transportation costs
  • Increase value of scrap and fluids
  • Reduced labor costs

Compact, skid-mounted scrap metal equipment for turnings volume reduction and solid-liquid separation of small to medium volumes of flowable chips. Fluid reclamation and dry chip output make this scrap removal system ideal for smaller shops.

A Typical E-Series Chip Processing System Includes:

  • Self-contained and forklift portable structure.
  • Infeed hopper with Screw Conveyor moves chips and loose turnings and meter feeds the scrap into an optional turnings shredder or Wringer.
  • Diagonal Shaft Wringer (gravity discharge) efficiently removes moisture from chips with over 600 G’s of centrifugal force.
  • Exclusive reversing feature extends service life.
  • Discharge Conveyor transfers processed chips to container.
  • 50 Gallon Fluid Recovery Tank
  • Electrical control panel with HMI Panel controls all system functions.

  • Shredder to reduce turnings into flowable chips.
  • Separator to remove bar ends and solids from chip flow.
  • Recirculating Drag Conveyor that automatically cleans the fluid recovery tank.
  • Spent fluids filter. The Paper Bed Filter is the first step to the recycle and reuse of fluids.
  • Auto lube systems for automatic greasing of bearings.

Nominal Chip Throughput

  • Steel 750 lbs/hr
  • Brass 600 lbs/hr
  • Aluminum 250 lbs/hr
  • Cast Iron 800 lbs/hr

Image Right: Auto lube systems are designed to automatically supply a small quantity of clean grease or oil to bearings on a regular basis-improving bearing performance and eliminating maintenance required for manual greasing.

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.
