BRIQUETTES FOR THE STEEL INDUSTRY

CUSTOM MADE BRIQUETTES THAT HELP MANUFACTURERS SQUEEZE VALUE OUT OF THEIR RECLAIMED MATERIALS

Briquetting allows companies to put their metal or mineral scraps to good use by compressing them into dense, reusable shapes. The sustainable practice reduces harmful waste, keeps labor costs to a minimum, and creates new revenue streams for waste-intensive manufacturers in the automotive, railroad, pipe and foundry, and brake casting industries.  

 

As a leading briquette producer, R.W. Sidley has been leveraging its vast aggregate mining and manufacturing expertise to offer reliable briquetting solutions for over 40 years. We use base metal and mineral materials supplied by our customers and combine them with our additive silica quartz sand to produce custom briquettes that meet exact requirements. Our tailored approach includes: 

  • Custom shapes and sizes  

  • Customer-defined chemistry ratios 

  • Proven products made from various base ingredients 

    • Silicon carbide 

    • Ferro silicon 

    • Ferro manganese 

    • Chromium 

    • Iron nuggets 

  • Year-round production
