      Metal briquetting as part of the recycling cycle

      Metal briquettes offer numerous advantages: Optimized storage and more efficient transport through volume reduction as well as cost-effective further processing. The briquetting process for metals also enables the recovery of expensive cooling lubricants, residual oils and emulsions, which are then fed back into the cooling or lubrication circuit. The resulting metal briquettes can be melted down directly, whereby they sink down in the melting process and thus melt with less slag formation and burn-off.

      01

      WEIMA not only briquettes light metals such as aluminum and magnesium, but also copper, brass and bronze, as well as sawing and milling waste from steel. Even special alloys in powder form, slag compounds, battery waste or grinding sludge from the most diverse materials can be briquetted without any problems. The briquetting process for metals provides an optimal starting point for the further processing or sale of pressed metal chips.

      02

      Waste material in top form
      Briquetted metal waste has up to 90 percent less volume than loose metal chips.

      Advantages of briquetting

      1. Direct and efficient melting down of the metal briquettes with significantly less burn-up
      2. Volume reduction of up to 90% of the starting material
      3. High pressing pressure for high briquette density
      4. Better residue handling
      5. Minimized disposal costs
      6. Reduction of transport and storage costs
      7. User-friendly design
      8. High ease of maintenance

      Shredding and briquetting of metal waste

      In metal recycling, the shredding of the metal waste is often the first step in the recycling cycle. Depending on its composition and shape, it is necessary to shred the residual metal before briquetting. This results in a homogeneous piece material which can be processed further in an optimal way. Shredding and further preparatory processing steps such as cleaning of the metal chips contribute significantly to the production of higher quality metal briquettes.
