PCF Series - Basket Presses
PCF direct-charging basket presses increase the productivity of the melt shop while reducing your energy cost per ton. A large vertical pressure block compresses successive charges of scrap within the basket until the basket is full; then discharges directly into the furnace.
Benefits of the PCF basket presses:
double material density for improved arc efficiency
full charge with fewer baskets; reduce open time in furnace
more meltings and casts per day
