Metal sorting for the metal recycling industry - Waste and Recycling - Metal Recycling

Metals can be identified according to the colour, nature of the metal and of elemental composition.

The recovery of:

  • Type sorting of ferrous metals (e.g., stainless steel)
  • Type sorting of non-ferrous metals (such as aluminium, copper, brass, bronze, zinc, stainless steel)
  • Critical raw material (e.g. tungsten from mobile phones)
  • Printed circuit boards
  • Plastics
  • Glass
  • Composite materials

Sorting of:

  • Various aluminium groups
  • Plastics
  • Various scrap metals

  • Sorting of slag: separation of various metals from a mixture of slag and metals
  • Sorting of aluminium
    • Separation of various impurities of metallic origin (Cu, Zn, VA, brass, Pb etc.)
      • further separation of these fractions (see below: sorting of non-ferrous metals and other metals)
    • Separation of various impurities of different origin (e.g. wood, plastics) by means of camera technology
    • Separation of aluminium alloys with a higher Zn or Cu content. We are able to produce for instance the alloy 6061 by separating Al alloys with Zn and Cu contents of a few percent
  • Sorting of stainless steels
    • Separation of impurities such as Cu, Zn, brass, Pb, Sn in pure form and in the form of alloys. A pure fraction of steel / stainless steel is produced.
    • Separation of stainless steels from a mixture of steel and stainless steel.
    • Separation of stainless steels with Mo contents according to adjustable Mo concentration
    • Separation of stainless steels with Ni contents according to adjustable Ni concentrations
  • Sorting of non-ferrous metals and other metals
    • Separation of Cu, Zn, brass etc. in pure fractions
      • Production of a pure Cu fraction
      • Production of a pure brass fraction
      • Etc.
  • Sorting of precious metals
    • Separation of materials containing Au
    • Separation of materials containing Ag
  • Special applications
    • Sorting of Cu tubes
      • Separation of Ag soldering joints
      • In general: Sorting of various alloys on the basis of differences in the composition of the elements, e.g. presence of an element in alloy A, which is not existent in B and C, etc.
