Metal Chip Processing, Fluid Filtration and Industrial Water Treatment Systems

PRAB Inc. will feature full-scale metal turnings and chip processing capabilities.

PRAB will demonstrate the Dualpak Briquetter using enhanced 3-D digital animation. Visitors will see inside the system as it works in series to compress metal chips, loose turnings and swarf into near solid, dry briquettes to send to the recycler or feed to a furnace. Also featured will be the Diagonal-Shaft Wringer, Guardian Coolant Recycling System, PRAB Paper Bed Filter and the EVALED Vacuum Evaporation and Distillation for industrial water and wastewater treatment.

PRAB's heavy-duty wringers/centrifuges use more than 600 G's of force to reclaim up to 98% of the valuable coolant and cutting oils from aluminum, brass, cast iron, steel, stainless steel and other metal chips. This process reduces haul-away cost and increases the value of dry chips.

The Guardian system recycles used coolants, reducing waste fluids by 50% to 90%, and eliminates concerns about wastewater haul-away liabilities. Everything needed for centralized coolant recycling is included with the Guardian. Each turn-key system is designed for easy installation, quick start-up and simple, efficient operation.

PRAB's Paper Bed Filters provide long-term solutions for solids filtration with or without magnetic separation and are suitable for grinding applications. Filtered fluid can be reused or recycled, lowering operational costs.

PRAB will also feature an EVALED Vacuum Evaporation and Distillation system for treating wastewater in a wide range of industrial applications such as exhausted oil emulsions, tumbling baths, parts rinsing waters, ion exchange regeneration, pretreatment baths, pickling baths, rinsing baths (cyanide, copper, zinc, nickel, cobalt, cadmium, chromium) and more. Every EVALED evaporator operates as a closed loop system under vacuum. "Atmospheric evaporators lose valuable energy through air emissions and may require an air permit or waiver for compliant operation," said a company spokesperson. "An EVALED evaporator has an efficient design with one inlet and two discharge streams: concentrate and distillate. No air emissions ever." A water analysis is performed to determine the exact equipment requirements to meet reuse or approved dumping requirements.

PRAB engineers and manufactures equipment based upon the exact needs and specifications of the application.
