Installation for the treatment of aluminum chips


New project currently about to launch in the facilities of a Mexican company that carries out both machining and foundry processes. Its objective, the reduction of humidity of the chip to later melt it and benefit from the advantages that our system offers (greater performance, reduction of smoke and explosions mainly). Also, the recovery of cutting oils to be able to reuse them.

This project has a double entry of material, for long chips and short chips.

The material will be received (long chips) in the hopper of the first conveyor, raising it in a dosed way to unload it in the crusher.

At the same time, the short chips are poured into the hopper of the second conveyor, which will join the already crushed chips on their way to the centrifuge.

Prior to centrifugation, the installation incorporates a vibrating screen to remove any type of piece or bar tip that goes along with the chip, thus avoiding problems in the centrifuge.

With the Cometel centrifuge, we managed to reduce the humidity level of the chip to minimum levels.

Finally, the material will be unloaded through the last conveyor. We incorporate a rotating tray at the end of it, a very useful accessory that allows us to distribute the discharge of the material evenly in the container.
