From Recycling Areas
The content of WEEE (electrical and electronic waste) gives recyclers various initiatives for recycling. It contains hazardous substances, such as lead, mercury or certain flame retardants, as well as precious metals like gold and silver. In 2012 approx. 64,900.000 ton electronic goods where produced and 49.000.000 ton electrical and electronic waste (WEEE) was generated. As the amount of sold electronic goods rise, the amount of WEEE rises. It is vital that this waste is taken care of properly.
In the WEEE Recycling Plants from Eldan Recycling the items mentioned in the EU WEEE Directive Annex 1B can be processed. Exceptions are Refrigerators/ Freezers, which instead are processed in Eldan refrigerator plants. We offer standard plants with capacities ranging from 800-7.000 kg/production hour. The standard plants are the starting point when systems are tailored to suit specific customer requirements - e.g. being able to process tyre, cable and WEEE in the same system or further reducing metal losses.
By processing electronic waste in an Eldan system, you will be able to retrieve e.g. various fraction of Ferrous and SS (Stainless Steel), various fraction of non-ferrous metals (Aluminium, Copper, Brass and Printed Circuit Boards (PCB's)), refining material containing e.g. Copper, Brass, Zinc, Lead and Precious Metals (PM), organic fraction with e.g. plastic, rubber, wood, textile and dust.
In the Eldan WEEE Recycling Plants most of the items mentioned in the EU WEEE Directive Annex 1B can be processed.

As an example: including a rasper (MPR120) capacities up to 1,5 ton/production (depending on input material) hour can be reached processing waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE). Output fraction is various fraction of Fe and SS, various fraction of Al, refining material containing Cu, Brass, Zinc, lead and PM etc. and an organic fraction. Limitations: the scrap must not contain Fe-parts with thickness above 1,5-2 mm, maximum sizes of axles/shafts are Ø 8-10 mm and maximum weight of each piece is approx. 1-2 kg.
Complete WEEE system (S1000-line)
A complete Eldan WEEE Recycling System (S1500-line) turns electronic and electrical waste into various fractions of Fe, SS, Al and an organic fraction with plastic, rubber, tree, textile etc. and refining material containing Cu, Brass, Zinc, Lead and Precious Metals, etc.. As an example: including a shredder (Ring Shredder S1000) capacities up to 3 ton/production (depending on input material) hour can be reached processing waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE). Output fraction is various fractions of Fe, SS, Al and an organic fraction with plastic, rubber, tree, textile etc. and refining material containing Cu, Brass, Zinc, Lead and Precious Metals, etc. Limitation: weight should not exceed 30-50 kg and oversize material has to be pre-cut to max 600x600x300 mm.
Large WEEE system (S1500HD-line)
A large Eldan WEEE Recycling System (S1500-line) turns electronic and electrical waste into FE, Alu, organic and non-ferrous fractions. As an example: including our largest shredder (Ring Shredder S1500HD) capacities up to 5-7 ton/production (depending on input material) hour can be reached processing waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE). Output fraction is less than 50 mm FE, Alu, organic and non-ferrous fractions. Limitation: weight should not exceed 30-50 kg and oversize material has to be pre-cut to max 1000x1000x700 mm.
Eldan Recycling has developed a 'small' capacity recycling system which give our customer a flexibility out of the ordinary - to process tyre, cable or/and WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment). We introduce to you the Eldan Multi Function-plant (E1500).
E1500T - Processing tyres
The Eldan tyre plant, E1500T is a simplified version of our larger tyre recycling plants. Like other Eldan solutions, this system is of modular design, which enables the possibility to add on to the system if required.
The system is simple, yet very effective, in order to minimize the number of machines and also space required. The E1500T only needs one operator for running the plant and one operator for handling the input tyres and and the output rubber granulate, textile and steel. The operation costs are low, due to the simple plant layout and the maintenance friendly machine design. The E1500T is the solution if you are looking for a less space-requiring, lower capacity tyre recycling plant.
The E1500T can process almost all types of tyres. As an example: processing truck and car tyres a 0-4 mm rubber granulate (95 – 99% free of liberated steel and textile) can be processed at approx. 1-1.5 ton/production hour.
D1500T – decreasing capacity, still processing tyres
If it is required to simplify the plant further, the Super Chopper and the inlet conveyor can be removed. The plant Is then called D1500T, and can process whole car tyres and pre-shredded truck tyres.
E4000T – increasing capacity, still processing tyres
If required, it is possible to further increase the capacity of the E1500T plant by upgrading it to an E4000T. The E4000T-upgrade includes adding a pusher, a stronger pump station, an additional Fine Granulator and a Classifier, buffer silos TBF and V4, among other additional machines. The E4000T can process up to 4 tons/processing hour, and produce an output of rubber granulate, 99.9% free of liberated steel wire and textile.
E1500TC - processing tyres and cables
The E1500T can easily be modified to a tyre and cable recycling plant. By adding additional separation and classifying equipment it is possible to design the E1500 plant to be able to process tyres or cables in the same plant. The additional gravity separation table will separate the heavy copper granulate from the lighter plastic fraction from the cables. It only requires cleaning of the plant and diversion of the transport in the system to change from processing tyres to processing cables in the same Eldan E1500TC Multi function recycling plant.
E1500MF - processing tyres, cables and electronics/WEEE
It is possible to extend the E1500TC to also being able to process WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) input as well as tyres and cables. As for the above described cable extension, the same plant can be expanded with the addition of a heavy duty Granulator and Eddy Current Separator and transports and the plant will now be able to process almost any type of input of tyres, cables or WEEE scrap materials.
This really shows the flexibility and advantage of the Eldan modular recycling plant concept. You could say that there are almost no limits for possible plant solutions, meaning that Eldan Recycling is able to fulfil any recycling requirements.
As a complement to the standard Eldan WEEE recycling systems, we offer optional modules to better suit your production requirements.
The Super Chopper is a powerful, low-speed, single or dual shaft pre-chopper used for pre-chopping of the input material – partly to size reduce the input and partly to increase the capacity of the WEEE Recycling Plant.
Recover more metals
The Water Separation Table is used to recover remaining metals from the organic (plastic) fraction.
Clean the steel fraction
Use the Drum Wind Screen to further cleaning of the steel fraction.
