BrikStar iSwarf - briquetting press for metal chips

Hydraulic briquetting press for the metal processing industry

In metal processing, often large quantities of waste products are incurred, such as grinding sludge and metal shavings, whose value is not recognised or remains unexploited. As a rule, these waste products are cost intensive to dispose of due to their high proportion of cooling lubricants, or they obtain only negligible revenue as scrap metal.

As a result of the “Ordinance on Facilities for Handling Substances Hazardous to Water” (AwSV), which came into force on 01.08.2017, the classification and handling of substances which are hazardous to water has changed significantly. However, these waste products can be used in an optimum way by means of a high performance briquetting press from Höcker Polytechnik.

In addition to the significant volume reduction and the resulting minimised transport routes, the adhering cooling lubricants are pressed out to such an extent that the briquettes may be stored and transported in accordance with the new AwSV Ordinance. The BrikStar iSwarf  series briquetting presses are ideally suited to the processing of predominantly short, loose metal shavings from the mechanical processing of non-ferrous metals, steel and cast parts or other metals such as aluminium and magnesium.

Another good reason to decide on a briquetting press from Höcker Polytechnik is, in addition to the volume reduction, the recovery of cooling lubricants, the environmental protection and the higher revenue that is achieved with briquettes compared to chips.

Benefit from the use of a Höcker briquetting press:

  • Reduce oil and lubricant costs
  • Lower logistics costs
  • Environmental protection thanks to briquetting
  • More revenue by briquettes
    = Fast payback period (ROI)
