The Compacto Fox series of hydraulic briquetting presses convert aluminum, copper, brass, bronze, graphite and other nonferrous metals into dimensionally stable, cylindrically shaped briquettes. The Fox machines feature a sturdy construction, which guarantees constant briquette quality in continuous operation. The pressing works by means of hydraulic pressure without any additives or glue.
Depending on size and type of material, briquetting can reduce the volume of the basic raw material by up to 90%. The volume of a standard hopper is about 0.5 m³. but large volume hoppers are also an option, as well as special tanks combinable with a dust extraction system and filter plant. According to individual requirements, fox presses can be provided as turnkey or single machine systems. The hopper can be fed manually via a screw conveyer, a extraction unit or a tipping container.
Depending on the type of machine, the briquette length can be 40 to 100 mm; the diameter 50, 65, or 70 mm. It is also possible to provide a sump tray in order to recover coolants, abrasives and lubricants that can be collected and recycled. Non-ferrous metal shavings are fed into the hopper, where they are mised and pushed by an integrated agitator into the pre-compression cavity. A hydraulic piston then pre-compresses the material and feeds the main cylinder. The hydraulic piston presses the material to a vertical slider until the required pressure is attained. A stabile briquette is produced. All FOX machines can be fitted with an oil cooling system for fully automatic operation.
