As an international market leader and supplier of complete processing systems for chips and grinding sludge Lanner Anlagenbau GmbH contributes significantly to a considerate and economic treatment of raw materials. This German company is specialized in single components and systems for chip and grinding sludge processing. In this process there are not only regained clean and dry chips but also the coolant which can be reused. Besides several centrifuges, chip crushers and complete systems Lanner Anlagenbau GmbH also offers briquetting presses. In the following article you find a short functional description:
The coolant containing chips or grinding sludge are put into the infeed hopper of the briquetting press. A dosing screw transports the material in defined quantity into the pressing chamber. Laser probes monitor the dosage. A specialized high pressure cylinder (with pressing capacity of up to 500 bar) compresses the chips or the sludge to a dimensionally stable briquette. The briquette has a very high density and low residual moisture.
While the chips are compacted the coolant is pressed out and can be reused in the further process circle. A tank under the briquetting press catches the separated coolant. The tank is equipped with a discharge pump and a probe according to WRA (water resources authority). The whole briquetting press stands on a tub which is also made according to WRA.
This briquetting press includes a control cabinet which is also made by Lanner.
Optionally the briquetting press from Lanner can be expanded by a chip crusher with tramp metal ejector. With this option also long and woolly chips can be treated.
To get an even better result concerning the residual moisture it is also possible to centrifuge the chips or sludge before briquetting. With Lanner centrifuges a residual moisture of less than 1 % is possible. (Further information concerning centrifuges you find in the product description “Centrifuge techniques”).
A briquetting press can be connected to a complete chip processing system with e. g. chip crusher, screener and centrifuge.
The chip crusher minimizes the volume of the long and woolly chips. The screener separates reliably the spare parts from the crushed chips. The free flowing chips can then enter the centrifuge. At this stage the separation of solid and liquid happens. The processing by centrifuge reaches a maximum drying result (without thermal drying) and because of the briquetting the volume of the chips or grinding sludge is minimized immensely. This combination makes sure that all occurring chips can be pressed to a high quality briquette, a maximum of coolant is regained and a perfect re-melting is guaranteed.
