The briquetting of aluminium chips with the RUF aluminium press creates briquettes that can then be sold on at a profit. As long as 35 years ago, RUF specialised in developing hydraulic briquette presses and now develops tailor-made briquetting solutions in accordance with specific customer requirements, above all in the field of aluminium recycling. Our briquetting press for metal chips can be directly incorporated into existing production processes and is designed for fully automatic 24-hour operation.
- Significant reduction in volume reduces transport costs
- Defined scrap quality
- Increased revenues from briquettes
- Recovery of expensive cooling lubricants
- Cleanliness at the workplace
- Reduced melting loss when re-melting
- Low maintenance costs & long service life
The high-quality, dense briquettes, which have a defined residual moisture, offer better opportunities for marketing than loose chips. There is also a profitable side effect to briquetting aluminium chips – cooling lubricants that adhere to the chips are efficiently recovered by our aluminium press. These cooling lubricants can then be reused after appropriate treatment.
Depending on customer requirements, we offer aluminium presses for throughputs between 30 and 2,400 kg per hour. The required throughput will have an influence on the choice of the briquette format.
