Metal briquetter processes
650 lbs./hr. of chips, turnings
RUF Briquetting Systems has introduced the RUF 11/1600/80 briquetter, designed to process up to
650 lbs./hr. of chips and turnings
from aluminum, brass, bronze, cast
iron, copper, magnesium, steel, tire
wire, titanium, and zinc.
The process compresses metal
scrap into a briquette that is easy
to transport, store, sell, and recycle.
The dense briquettes are less susceptible to corrosion and melt more e;iciently than loose chips, the company reports. They can reduce scrap volume
by as much as 20-to- 1.
The low-horsepower, compact machine, which also reclaims cutting fluids,
is engineered for automatic, 24-hr. operation and integrates into existing production lines.

Hand-held XRF analyzer includes
Wi-Fi support and coatings mode
Thermo Scientific has released a so;ware
update to its Niton XL5 hand-held X-ray fluorescence (XRF) analyzer. The so;ware release
includes Wi-Fi support that connects the analyzer with the user’s computer network, as
well as a new coatings mode for expanded
functionality and applications support.
The new coatings mode allows users to
measure the thickness or weight of up to four
coating layers, including alloys, compounds,
and pure metals. Users also can define substrate layers comprising alloys, pure metals,
It can penetrate up to four layers using a standardless fundamental-parameter calibration, eliminating the need to calibrate using samples.
