Proven to Increase Scrap Value Up to 25%

Exclusive Dual-Ram Compression Technology

PRAB’s Dualpak Briquetter machines increase the value of metal chips, loose turnings and swarf by compressing them into near solid, dry briquettes to send to the recycler or feed to furnace. Unlike competing briquetting machines, the Dualpak uses two opposing hydraulic cylinders. These cylinders press metal equally from both sides, creating the industry’s densest briquettes.

The Industry’s Densest Briquette



System Operation:

Augers feed chips into a compression chamber, then two opposing hydraulic cylinders press the metal, squeezing out any fluid and creating a compact puck. System is available with 1,2,3, and 4 cubic yard live bottom hoppers and can also be adapted to compress swarf.
