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.
Aluminum bottle caps are a valuable source of recycled material, but the composites they contain, such as plastic or paper, pose a challenge to the recycling process. Efficient separation of these composites from the aluminum lids is critical to ensure high-quality recycling. This is where our PTV interlacing mill comes into play.
The PTV balling mill was specially developed to optimally process aluminum bottle caps and enable precise separation of the other composites.
Our PTV enables the efficient separation of various materials, including aluminum, glass, sealants and, where applicable, surface coatings used in windows and doors.
This innovative technology enables precise and resource-efficient material separation, which has a positive impact on recycling and environmental protection.
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.
