Metal briquetters

Briquetting presses to compress loose metal chips

Briquetters, or briquetting presses as they are also called, are metal recycling machines that compress loose metal chips into compact briquettes that are easy to handle and efficiently to be melted. Metso's briquetters offering consists of two ranges, Lindemann™ EtaBriq™ briquetters and N-Series™ NSP briquetters.

Better logistics

Reduced volume resulting in lower storage and transportation costs.

Simpler processing
