Swarf Compactors

LUBRISERV Swarf Compactors for metal swarf can provide additional revenue from briquettes against loose swarf. Low residual moisture content (<3%) and reduced freight costs - volume can be reduced to as little as 1/10. Coolants and cutting oils can be recovered whilst storage and disposal cost can be significantly reduced, alongside a significant lowering of fire and explosion risks.

SWARF COMPACTORS FROM 100 TO 1200L /HR

  • Additional revenue of briquettes against loose swarf
  • Low residual moisture content < 3%
  • Reduced freight costs – volume can be reduced to as little as 1/10
  • Recovery of coolants and cutting oils
  • Substantial reduction of storage and disposal expenditures
  • Significant lowering of fire and explosion risks

LUBRI-BRIK compactors can process up to 1200L/h (dependent on material type). Metal turnings and chips from machining operations are reduced in volume, dramatically reducing storage space, by up to 80%. The result is more room for production, easier handling and lower transport costs. The compacted metal can be sold to your scrap processor or broker usually for a higher value than loose swarf as the compaction process squeezes most of the cutting fluids from the swarf. The fluid is collected in a built in storage tank.   The LUBRI-BRIK Mini Briquetter is controlled via a PLC and touchscreen panel.

CENTRALISED RANGE OF SWARF COMPACTORS FROM 100 – 700 L/HOUR

The centralised swarf compacting machines allow loading by tipping swarf bins in manually. The reduction of the volume of metal shavings follows the same process as the stand alone compactors, but enables large volumes of chipped or stringy swarf to be loaded in bulk.
All the machines are equipped with a tank for collecting the waste liquid and a drain pump. The machines are electrically operated with a PLC and a touch screen and can be linked for remote control and monitoring from a desktop computer.
Usually the non ferrous metals have the quickest payback so it is well worth considering if you have a significant amount of aluminium, copper, brass, alu bronze or lead.

Economy

The basic gained by swarf briquetting is the conversion of low density chips to a solid briquette. This gives important advantages for consumers of chips – better melting economy, less burn-off loss and simpler chip handling.

Environment

Briquetting of swarf and grinding fines can reduce a significant negative environmental impact as the products can be brought back in a closed cycle for reuse.

Technical data

Lubriserv have swarf briquetters for capacities up to 800 kg/hour for steel swarf and 200 kg/ hour for aluminium swarf. The compacting pressure can be over 300 bar and the motor power from as low as 3kW up to 50 kW. For briquetting of metal swarf from the machining process, the swarf must be short chips and have a rigidity of max 300 HB. If you have stringy, tangled swarf or contains solids or bar ends it may require pre processing prior to the briquetter e.g. conveyor/separator, shredding or crushing – Lubriserv will advise and can supply suitable equipment to work in tandem with your new press. The swarf briquette is processed by hydraulic briquetting with a controlled briquette length. Thanks to our briquetters high working pressure, briquettes of high density are produced, for example a density of over 2.4kg/dm3 can be achieved on aluminium 6000 series.
