Scrap Dealers

Briquetters transform scrap into dense Briquettes, this reduces volume and saves transportation costs. Dense Briquettes will increase the selling price to the Mill.


Batch yield will be greater with dense Briquettes compared to loose material. Greater yield will provide more money to go to the bottom line.

Transforming loose chips into dense Briquettes pays by increasing scrap value, reducing transportation & handling costs, recovering coolant, & making the end product easier to weigh.


Unless your melting equipment (furnace, charging system) is specifically adapted for the melting of loose chips, they could cause major problems when they are processed. These problems include restricted charging, increased energy consumption, longer melting times, greater oxidization loss, and increased slag. Melting material that is in a briquette form could prove to be very cost effective, as opposed to melting loose chips.

Do you have your own smelter or foundry? The scrap metal shredders sold by ARS are built with the highest face pressure in the industry. Higher face pressure means higher density, which leads to higher recovery of metal in a hot molten bath and higher value for that material. Smaller metal chips and turnings often burn away when melted.
