Easier Scrap Metal Removal with Foundry Series Briquette Machines

Whether your foundry runs a high-production foundry furnace or simply manages smaller volumes, disposing of scrap metal such as ductile or sand cast iron, brass, aluminum, bronze or steel can become a painful cost that eats into your bottom line. But scrap metal removal doesn’t have to be a costly expense for your business when you have a Foundry Series briquette press. With our equipment you can process your used scrap into high-value metal briquettes that you can offer for sale at a premium, rather than sell at reduced scrap metal rates.

How Scrap Metal Disposal Equipment Help You Cuts Costs and Boosts Profits

Foundry Series equipment saves you from a number of hidden costs that come with the sale of scrap metal. Does your casting leave you with scrap iron, steel or aluminum? Our equipment can compact your scrap into briquettes only 1/8 the size, saving you on costly transportation expenses. Selling brass, bronze, or aluminum? Our compaction process removes as much cutting fluid as metal chip wringing, bringing you high prices at market and reduced hazardous liability (in most cases your briquettes will be more than 98% moisture-free.)
