Metalworking companies are always looking for ways to reduce expenses and minimize waste. With economic uncertainty affecting industries around the world, it’s never too early to prepare for any downturns by tapping into the true value of metal scrap.
Operations can get ahead of any potential headwinds in a few ways:
Each of these methods are critical to generating a larger return from the scrap dealer and saving on coolant costs.
Briquetters are designed for this purpose.
Advantages of Briquetting
Briquetting takes metal manufacturing waste like chips, turnings, and swarf and forms them into dry pucks. These pucks, also called briquettes, can then be collected, recycled as scrap metal, or fed to a furnace for re-melting.
The puck formation involves both solids and liquids handling. Therefore, the process carries two distinct advantages for reducing costs and maximizing your monetary gains from the sold scrap.
