Metal recycling is an important source of raw materials for reuse in steel mills and foundries. Metals can be reused after their intended purpose has expired. Common metals used conventionally in households and industry can be divided into two main groups, Fe metals and non-ferrous metals (Ne). Fe-metals contain iron (Fe). e.g. steel and steel alloys and non-ferrous metals do not contain iron (Ne). e.g., aluminum, copper, lead, zinc, etc..
Our areas of application at a glance:
Refrigerators contain around 10% non-ferrous metals such as aluminum, copper and iron. To recover these valuable metals, the first step is to remove all loose metal and glass parts and dismantle the refrigerator’s compressor and motor. In addition, the coolant is extracted. Subsequently, the refrigerators are crushed and processed with our PTV balling mill so that high-grade metals such as aluminum, copper and plastics can be separated from each other with a separating table. The result is clean heavy and light fractions.
Whenever a final grain size of 1 mm and smaller is to be produced, in many cases the most economical solution is to use a hammer mill.
