The Lindemann Eta®Briq briquetting press reliably processes metal chips and grinding dust into high-density briquettes. With the aid of the Lindemann Eta®Briq, metal scraps from steel, cast iron, non-ferrous metals and metal mixtures become recyclable and can be returned to the material flow. The briquetting press makes waste disposal more efficient. During the pressing process, emulsions and oils are extracted for subsequent recycling. Because the briquettes are compact, melting losses are reduced to a minimum and storage and transport costs are significantly lowered.
