Study of metal-bearing waste processing by pressing

  • The BrikStar technological production equipment is designed for pressing metal chips arising from the machining of cast iron, steel (crushed chips from machining, bulk material), abrasive sludge, oiled scale
  • The pressing takes place in a cylindrical die closed on both sides by pressing tools, the pressing pressure of up to 400 MPa acts on both bases of the cylindrical briquette
