Application for slow speed metals processing shredding
SSI offers a variety of low-speed, high-torque shredders for volume reduction and recovery of ferrous and non-ferrous scrap metal materials.. Metal processing is a great application for slow speed shredding technologies. SSI has many customers processing metals all around the world.
Typical Applications for Metals
- FERROUS METALS
- ASR – Auto Shredder Residue
- Lead Acid Batteries (Automotive & Industrial)
Common applications for SSI include: thin gauge sheet, tin roofing and siding, stampings, turnings, formed parts, appliances and auto panels (not whole cars). Shredders are commonly used to remove airspace, increase density, reduce transportation costs and improve pricing.
Baled UBCs, sheet, taint tabor, slitter balls, coils, siding, HRB bales, wheels, extrusions, radiators and more. These are all applications where SSI shredders have been widely used to process, liberate, densify and prepare materials for sorting, delacquering systems and furnaces.
COPPER, BRASS, OTHER NON-FERROUS
Anodes, tubing, radiators, ICW, brass, silver coated wire & plate and more have been processed with SSI shredders for liberation, recovery and densification ahead of furnaces.
Titanium, Zirconium, Magnesium, blended and mixed alloys are among things that SSI shredders have processed for customers. In these cases, systems are typically purpose built and proprietary.
APPLIANCES, E-SCRAP & ASR
SSI has extensive experience in the supply of processing systems that are designed to reduce these kinds of materials and separate commodities at the first point they become marketable.
Lead Acid Batteries
SSI has many installations processing automobile, truck and industrial lead acid batteries. These corrosion resistant machines are purpose built and many of them have been in service for 20+ years processing 40+ tons per hour. Finished materials include recyclable metals, plastics and acid, which can be regenerated and re-used or converted into an additive found in laundry detergents.
