Prab Inc. introduces Prab/Monlan, a new company based in Kalamazoo, Michigan that offers integrated solutions for chip removal and fluid filtration. Created through Prab’s 2008 acquisition of Envirodyne Technologies, Prab/Monlan provides a single-source solution for both metal chip and fluid recovery for recycle or reuse.
Prab has produced scrap handling systems and equipment for metalworking operations since 1950. The company’s chip-handling equipment includes traditional entrenched conveyor systems as well as modular chip briquetters, wringers and pneumatic scrap conveyors. Prab/Molan combines these products with a line of equipment for the recovery, filtration and recycling of coolants, lubricants and wastewater offered by Envirodyne under the Monlan brand.
“We have had customers use Prab for chip handling and three or four other suppliers for fluid-processing equipment,” says Ned Thompson, CEO of Prab and Prab/Molan. “Now, they can have one source, one installation and one performance guarantee that extends across the entire chip and fluid management system.”
While integrated solutions can increase economy and efficiency, the new company says its modular chip and fluid management technology could have an even greater impact on the industry. It notes that the availability of flexible, modular systems based on vacuum and pneumatic technology will allow small and moderate-sized operations to incorporate waste management technology that once was practical only for large metalworking facilities.
