Dismantled ELVs (End of Life Vehicles) are sold to shredder operators and are reduced to fist-size pieces by large rotating hammer mills. The Shredder Light Fraction (SLF) is removed from the stream by suction, the intensity of which determines the amount and composition of the SLF. SLF consists essentially of plastics/rubber (~60%), Glass/sand i.e. mineral substances (~15%), Textiles/leather/wood (~10%), Paint dust/rust (~10%) and Residual metals (~5%). Other names for SLF are ASR (Automobile Shredder Residue)...
Since 1991, the bi-directional dense medium separation technology for the recycling of automobile and industrial wastes is being used. For many years a principle client in this regard has been the Group Galloo. Group Galloo owns currently 50% of the AD REM shares. At first the Galloo staff was not convinced that a carrot separator could compete with the classical dense medium separators on the market at that time. So they set up a trial on +12 mm automobile shredder residue, running half of the test material...
Granutech Saturn Systems design and manufacture white goods shredders and systems capable of sorting the ferrous fraction from the fluff and can equip these with eddy current and other finder technology to sort aluminum, stainless, and other recoverable metals.
Granutech’s MAC crushers are the industry-leading automobile crushers. With over 40 years of experience and more than 2,000 machines in operation, we have developed a line of reliable and durable auto crushers designed to meet the needs of the automobile recycling and scrap industry. The crushed car from a MAC is the most preferred form for shredding and the safest form for feeding into car shredders.
End of life vehicle processing recovers valuable recyclates and removes for recovery all pollutants from automobiles. After this process, the remaining vehicle is shredded for further treatment into smaller parts called Auto Shredder Residue (ASR) sometimes referred to as Auto Shredder Fluff or Car Fluff. ASR contains a mixture of all the different materials that make up the automobile, including metals, plastics, rubbers and textiles. This mixture of materials makes ASR a difficult waste to handle and potentially...
SSI offers a variety of high-capacity, bulk-feed shredder models which produce small particles for paper document and security destruction. SSI offers several types of plant based system solutions ranging from low to high processing capacities. Here are some typical system solutions:
They are all those plastic and textile materials in the car that can be shredded. SatrindTech proposes a two-shaft shredders for volume reduction of bumpers, headlights and three- and four-shaft shredders for shredding automotive interior fabric, sponge and plastic type of synthetic materials.
Ferrous and non-ferrous metals are particularly valuable resources. For volume reduction however very durable cutting tools are needed. Specifically designed for this application our metal shafts break the material with huge force. The auto-reverse function prevents a fraction of the shafts.
Over the past 11 years, Minergy have successful processed 50 different waste streams including coal and municipal solid waste incineration fly ash, municipal solid waste incineration bottom ash, municipal biosolids, auto shredder residuals, manufactured gas plant remediation waste, biomass fuel waste, contaminated river sediment, paper mill sludge, chemical plant wastewater sludge and paint sludge.
The growing demand for high-value, secondary raw materials renders targeted recycling increasingly attractive. Modern TOMRA Sorting technology generates clean non-ferrous metal fractions in customer shredder operations and results in valuable scrap metal gains.
Previously, cable and wire materials were often lost in the treatment and sorting process, resulting in a financial loss due to the high proportion of copper they contain. TOMRA sorting technologies are capable of detecting these wires, transferring them to a metal product and then finally sorting them in a further step into a cable fraction of outstanding purity.
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.
