Value
  • Decreased storage and transportation costs
  • Increase value of scrap and fluids
  • Reduced labor costs

Process loose metal turnings into flowable chips. Scrap metal recycling system couples volume reduction with fluid separation to produce dry chips and reclaim 99% of valuable coolants and cutting oils.

The ideal solution for scrap metal consisting of flowable chips and loose turnings

A Typical Shredder/Wringer Chip Processing System Includes:

  • Infeed hopper with Screw Conveyor accepts chips and loose turnings and meter feeds the turnings into the shredder.
  • Turnings Shredder uses energy-saving dual shafts that operate by ripping, cutting and tearing turnings into manageable, shovel-grade chips for further processing.
  • Tramp Metal Separator effectively removes bar ends and other tramp metals from the chips, protecting the Wringer and other downstream equipment.
  • Diagonal Shaft Wringer (available with air discharge or gravity discharge) efficiently removes moisture from chips with over 600 G’s of centrifugal force.
  • Wringer Discharge Conveyor transfers processed chips to customer’s container (conveyor not shown in above photo).
  • Settling tank with re-circulating drag conveyor provides automatic re-circulation of settle fines back into the system. Package includes an air-diaphragm pump for transferring fluid to holding tank of filtration system.
  • Electrical control panel with HMI Panel controls all system functions.
  • Optional coolant recycling system can cut disposal costs up to 90%. Learn about our Guardian Coolant Recycling System and Paper Bed Filter
  • Optional auto lube systems for automatic greasing of bearings.
