Cable recycling

Cable recycling

Robust and efficient machines and systems for cable recycling – unparalleled yield also with stranded wire cables

The recycling of cable scrap places enormous demands on the machine and system technology. Especially on the sector of scrap cable, tramp material in the feed product is the norm rather than the exception, and the copper itself also demands an extremely robust machine design.
Over and above this, the copper is not always present in the same form – solid cable, for example, with a diameter of up to several millimetres and fine stranded cable with diameters in the 100-micrometre range.
Perfect results – with respect to service life and yield – call not only for specialists but also for the right system.

Best results due to the right cutting and separation technology

The granulators used for cable recycling are characterised by virtue of their extremely robust design, proven over many years. Durable construction materials such as SG cast iron can be combined with wear-protection elements especially tailored to the processing of scrap cable.
The reliable processing of different feed sizes and compositions, as well as an excellent recovery factor, is ensured by means of a modular system comprising preliminary size reduction, liberation, pelleting and dry mechanical separation.

Competencies in cable recycling:

  • Maximum recovery degree of copper
  • Minimum contamination in copper and plastic
  • Long machine service life
  • Simple maintenance
  • Low personnel costs due to fully automated process control
  • Explosion-protection concept for filters
