U-tech make chip compactor is used to compact waste metal scrap produced from metal cutting operations like milling, turning, boring, etc.
The compactor uses 80 tons of force to press the scrap into briquettes of size 100mm diameter and 65mm height
The force used to achieve this enables the briquettes to be highly dense, typically more than half the density of the original metal
Reduction in storage space; better value for dry briquetted scrap; recovery of precious coolant; reduction in transportation costs; improved efficiency in foundry’s if briquettes are used instead of scrap
Almost any type of material can be processed in this chip compactor; for cast iron, the machine has a capacity to process 250 to 300 kg of scrap per hour; the capacity however varies according to the nature of the chips.
