All you make is chips.™
Before your system ships, Inter-Source sends you photographs and/or samples of actual chips to help ensure initial engineering and component development best satisfies your business’s unique application requirements. This is just one way our customer service caters to your needs so that you can do your job in the best way possible.
Inter-Source will provide an opportunity for you to inspect your equipment in a static state before shipping your system, saving us both time and money. These inspections allow you to understand your system before its necessary use, reducing disruptions to your everyday business.
Comprehensive setup and runoff are also available upon request.
Single 30″ System
Inter-Source’s single 30″ system with hydraulic cart dumper feeds into an incline screw conveyor that meters chips through a shredder. This shredder ensures uniform chip sizing for easy reconstitution and remelting. Chips then pass through a parts separator which serves to remove solids such as tools and meter the flow of material into the wringer. From here, fluids such as oil and coolant are removed from the chips.
Chips are then pneumatically transported overhead (with a distance of up to 100 feet) to a cyclone. After, they are discharged via a mechanically operated swivel chute into open-top containers for easy collection and moving.
Single 40″ System
Inter-Source’s single 40″ system with hydraulic cart dumper feeds into a horizontal twin screw conveyor that meters chips through a dual drive shredder. After ensuring uniform sizing, the chips pass through the shredder and are transported via a steel belt conveyor through a vibratory deck. This movement helps to remove large solids into a parts separator which removes any remaining solids. The chips are then metered into the 40″ wringer. The wringer removes fluids from the chips, and dry chips are pneumatically transported overhead to heights up to 100 feet and discharged into an enclosed van-type semi-trailer.
Dual 50″ System
Inter-Source’s dual 50″ system was invented for foundry operation. To begin, material is loaded into a horizontal twin screw conveyor that meters chips through a dual drive shredder for uniform chip sizing. Sized chips pass through the shredder and are transported via a steel belt conveyor to a horizontal dual directional twin screw conveyor. This second conveyor transports material evenly into two parts separators which remove solid materials before metering the chips into two 50″ wringers.
The wringers remove fluids from the chips, and the dry chips are pneumatically transported to two cyclones. The cyclones drop dry chips into two triple drum magnetic separators which remove ferrous contamination from the chip flow. The chips are then metered via a rotary airlock into pneumatic tubing where they are transported with the aid of a blower reaching heights up to 500 feet. They are dropped into dry chip collection bays to await the foundry furnaces.
