Long Lasting Equipment: Conveyors Still Operating in the Field After 57 Years

PRAB Conveyors are documented to lower maintenance and are built tough for long life. Scrap type and size, loading conditions and air temperature are all factors in determining a system’s longevity and we take all of these into consideration when we design.

Pivot Belt Conveyors

No Carryover of Sticky Stamping Scrap

The unique design of the pivoting sections and the raised-dimpled Rigidized® steel belt ensure no carryover of sticky, oily pieces. (Plain belting is also available.) Its raised pusher flights keep material flowing as the seamless, one-piece pan collects waste fluid for safe disposal or recycling.

“I used to work in a shop that had PRAB equipment and it ran 24/7, with very little maintenance. When it came time to look at scrap handling systems, I wanted to go with what I felt was the best.”

Smart Equipment: Remote Notification System Alerts Minimize Downtime

PRAB’s smart-programming provides remote notification system alerts to minimize downtime and provides diagnostic-fault programming to make corrections without employee intervention. Email and text notifications are also available for conditions that the customer would like to monitor about the system.

ScrapVeyor II Conveyors

Liquid Tight Construction to Transfer All Types of Metal Scrap

This fully automated conveyor features a leak-proof construction that retains 100% of your cutting fluids. Larger rollers keep the chain on track and the rotating flight cams provide less friction for cooler, longer operation. Its V or flat trough features an abrasion-resistant, self-cleaning, raised-dimpled Rigidized® flight surface. Use in combination with a distribution system to maximize your operation’s load-out efficiency.

Harpoon Conveyors

Liquid Tight System Ideal for High Volume, Coolant Flow Applications

This conveyor’s liquid-tight trough construction is ideal for high-volume coolant flow applications. The free-floating ram design and abrasion-resistant steel liner minimize maintenance. Install the Harpoon easily below the floor (cast in place or pit-mounted) or specify an elevating design.

Magnetic Conveyors

Quiet Performance with No Carryover

Convey wet or dry ferrous chips, stamping slugs, stamping scrap or parts with no carryover. All models feature a rugged, longlife stainless steel slider bed with a smooth or raised-dimpled Rigidized® steel surface. Permanent ceramic magnets are standard; rare earth magnets are optional for heavyduty applications.

Shuttle Conveyors

Load-out Stamping Scrap with Even Distribution to Trailers or Railcars

This transversing, bi-directional steel belt conveyor’s continuous, back-and-forth operation provides even scrap distribution between dual large containers – something swivel chute systems cannot achieve. Automatic level sensors warn operator when the trailer is full.

Pneumatic Conveyors:
Vacuum Systems

Move chips and Unmanageable Metal Scrap with No Plant Air Required

This system’s powerful vacuum blower(s) delivers metal chips to a wringer, briquetter or load-out area with ease and efficiency. It even moves hard-tomanage scrap sizes and shapes to a Horizontal Axis Crusher. Installs in tight spaces and reconfigures easily if you add machining centers.

Pneumatic Conveyors:
Blower Systems

Transport Wet or Dry Metal Chips with Positive Air Pressure or a Vacuum System

Model 525 Chip Fans transfer dry aluminum chips to scrap trailers. The positive air system uses a PD pump or blower that can be fed by rotary air locks or eductors for multiple chip inputs. Negative Pressure Vacuum Systems pick up wet or dry chips at multiple points and deliver them to a central processing system. Cyclone Receivers reduce chip velocity as they are conveyed through the pneumatic system.

Quench Conveyors

Improve Die Casting Consistency and Productivity

Liquid-tight quench conveyors are excellent where air-cooling is not sufficient or practical in your die cast, heat transfer, parts cooling or coating operation. Specify either a steel or magnetic belt and separate or integral, leakproof liquid tank. Chillers are also available to conserve water usage.

Casting Coolers

Ideal for Air Cooling of Hot Die Castings

Eliminate the misting and air-quality issues associated with water quench conveyors. Available with steel belt or an optional flat belt that promotes extra cooling for lightweight casting applications. Customize with a single fan or multiple cooling zones in a length to match your application.

“Our original process was very labor intensive and required constant attention,” said Sroufe. “It was not effective, far from automatic, and it certainly didn’t fit with our philosophy of having a clean, environmentally-friendly shop.” C&A Tool, Gary Sroufe, multi-spindle “go-to guy”
