Briquetting - Metal recycling

The company Therma FM, Ltd. is managing metal scrap recycling plant since 2005. Recycling lines consists of:
sorting of scrap metal (visual, RTG analyzer)
crushers of long turnings
briquetting machines
The current capacity of the lines allows us to serve multiple clients simultaneously while maintaining tight deadlines.
The advantage of metal scrap briquetting is obvious:
- a positive economic impact in terms of better handling of briquettes
- easier loading and unloading
- lower transport costs
- better handling in batches into the furnace
- reducing the amount of alloying elements in the batch
- less slag formation etc.
Briquetting of feedstock only takes place via hydraulic pressure (300 bar). Briquettes are made without any binder.

- Single-steel chips (one sort of material)
- Cast iron chips
