Oil Recovery Press

The Oil recovery system is designed to increase the swarf value, by minimizing the loss of cutting oil and there by reducing the adverse impact on environment. Typically the grinding waste contains 25-30% cutting oil. Our press extracts the maximum cutting oil that is being wasted and leaves behind oil free nature of pressed swarf. Pressed swarf/waste are suitable for efficient recycling and have higher value for product. Some of the common metals recovered are High Speed Steel (HSS), Tungsten and other precious metals.

Our Oil Recovery Press has a large capacity hopper (can hold approximately 970 Litres/256 US gallons). It has minimal running cost and short payback time which helps in saving remarkably on new oil costs.
