How often are metal turnings, filing, chips and shavings left on your production floor? Storing it takes up valuable space, and can be awkward to recycle, as well as a potential health and safety hazard. RUF offers a number of hydraulically powered metal briquetting systems that can help salvage value from your scrap metal. With 24-hour operation, low power consumption, compression pressure of up to 72,000 psi, our machines can seamlessly be incorporated into the production supply chain to help keep your workplace cleaner and safer. Add to this the additional benefits;

  • Reduce your waste volume up to 20:1 for reduced storage, handling and transport
  • Re-use the metal briquettes through the process or sell to foundries
  • Reuse or recycle the process fluids e.g. oils, lubricants, sludge

RUF machines can briquette a multitude of materials including;

  • Aluminium                                                    
  • Brass
  • Bronze
  • Cast iron
  • Copper
  • Magnesium
  • Steel
  • Titanium
  • Zinc

The dense briquettes that are produced are less susceptible to corrosion and an attractive proposition to foundries.
