Metal chip briquetting
METAL CHIP BRIQUETTING MACHINES FOR A WIDE RANGE OF METALS & ALLOYS
The value of metal residues can be greatly increased with our metal press machine. The metal chip briquetting machine is a real all-rounder and is suitable for pressing aluminium, steel, cast iron, copper and countless other metals. On the basis of the particular experience we have gained in the field of metal chip recycling, we are able to offer briquetting solutions which are individually tailored to customer-specific requirements.
Briquetting is a suitable treatment method for de-watering or de-oiling wet metal chips. During the briquetting process, our metal chip press recovers cooling lubricants that adhere to the damp metal chips. Consumption of these expensive cooling lubricants is thereby significantly reduced.
Depending on customer requirements, we offer metal chip presses for throughputs between 30 and 5,000 kg per hour. The required throughput and briquette density will have an influence on the choice of the briquette format.

RUF 500 un Strojplast
RUF 500 un Strojplast
In July 2018, SIA RMP installed a new briquetting press RUF 500 in a Latvian wood processing company with an additional bunker, which split the material between two presses, and a conveyor belt and the Strojplast packing machine. In order to interact with all the equipment, it was necessary to install modern control panels to inform about the operation of each machine and warning about a errors.
What are the advantages of briquetting metal chips?
Reducing the volume of chips during briquetting will reduce the cost of production space, storage, and transportation by several times. The coolant contained in the chips is squeezed out and collected in the press pan, after additional filtration it can be returned to production. Briquettes are no longer waste, they are a valuable secondary raw material for foundry production, which can replace part of the lump metal in the charge and increase the yield of metal during remelting.
What are the advantages of briquetting grinding slurry?
- extract up to 90% of expensive grinding oil from the sludge and return it to production, saving on the purchase of new oil,
- significantly reduce the volume of grinding sludge,
- reduce the cost of sludge disposal, because sludge after briquetting is almost dry,
- increase the level of environmental safety of the enterprise. Sludge in briquetted form, without oil content, can be transferred from a hazardous waste category to a less hazardous one.
What other metal waste, besides metal shavings and grinding sludge, can the RUF press briquet?
For example, aluminum foil, aluminum cans, aluminum caps from medicine containers, spent cartridges, titanium sponge, shredded copper wire. Send us information about your waste and we will definitely answer you on the possibility of briquetting, in case of doubt, we will offer to conduct a test briquetting.
What are the requirements for producing briquettes?
In general, almost all materials can be made into briquettes. However, the chip particles should not be bigger than 50mm. The chips should not contain any impurities. For Wood & Biomass the moisture content should be less than 12 % (max 15 %).
Is it possible to briquet magnesium shavings, because it is prone to spontaneous combustion?
Yes, it is possible and even necessary. Briquetting of magnesium shavings is an effective way to eliminate the risk of spontaneous combustion, due to the high density of the briquettes there is no oxygen access to the shavings.
How do I find the right briquetting machine?
We have many years of experience in briquetting which means that our experts are well-qualified to provide you with professional advice in choosing the right briquette press. We work with you to identify your individual requirements on the basis of the material in question and the production conditions. This then allows us to offer you custom-made briquetting machines or even complete briquetting solutions.
Is there an “all-rounder” press for all possible materials?
We always try to find the best possible briquetting solution. Our range has therefore been specifically developed for certain materials, production conditions or marketing purposes of the briquettes. Our experts will be happy to advise you with respect to processing several different materials with one briquetting machine.
Do we need to crush/shred the chips before briquetting?
In the case of long, woolly chips, it may be necessary to crush the starting material beforehand. In this case, we can offer complete solutions together with the relevant suppliers. With our free pressing test, we can establish whether your starting material can be briquetted or whether it needs to be crushed beforehand.
