With the RS 500 Briquetter, you'll ...

  • maximize the value of scrap metal turnings and chips
  • maximize the recovery of valuable cutting fluids
  • minimize the liability exposure and price deductions associated with coolant contaminated shipments
  • minimize the floor space devoted to scrap metal storage

... all with one simple machine. The machine that makes scrap pay ... to the benefit of your bottom line.

Briquetting makes your scrap more valuable to dealers — as much as 10% to 200% more valuable, depending on the type of material your operation generates.

Briquetting squeezes up to 98% of any fluid present out of the scrap and into the recovery reservoir for recycling — saving you money and all but eliminating the liability exposure and pricing penalties arising from coolant contamination.

Briquetting condenses scrap by a factor of 8 to 1, freeing up storage space for productive uses.
