  • Redwave XRF 3-way-sorting in innovative free-fall design

    Recycling of metal and aluminium knows no limits because it can be rcmcltcd as scrap indefinitely. Mclals, however have to be separated from non-metallic impurities, and different metals have to be sorted in pure fractions to be used as secondary raw materials substituting primary resources. Especially when it comes to aluminium a lot of energy can be saved when remclting aluminium scrap. By ...

  • Significant increase in the value of aluminium swarf thanks to briquetting process - Case Study

    The GLEICH group increases its profitability by compressing 3,800 tonnes of swarf each year Should you just send the metal swarf created during manufacturing to the scrap dealer or should you increase its value by selling it for profit? The GLEICH group discovered the answer to this around ten years ago. Since then, the family-run business has been turning its aluminium swarf into ...

  • Removal of phosphorus and residual aluminium with the simultaneous use of chitosan and alum on the effluent of an MBBR biological system during start–up

    Physico–chemical treatment with aluminium salts is a common practice to remove total phosphorus (TP) from wastewaters. However, the use of alum can increase the residual aluminium concentration both in the effluent and biosolids. Chitosan, an alternative coagulant, does not allow for the removal of TP below the requirement level when lower than the soluble phosphorus fraction of the water. Hence, ...

  • Exergy and sustainability

    A thorough qualitative investigation of the relation between exergy losses and the environmental aspect of sustainability has been conducted. It is concluded that almost all environmental effects can be taken into account by studying the waste of feedstocks and energy, and the emission and dispersion of pollutants. On the basis of the results of two case studies, i.e., the production of aluminium ...

  • Calcined Bauxite

    Calcined Bauxite Introduction   Calcined Bauxite manufacturers produce Calcined Bauxite by firing (heating) the superior grade Bauxite at high temperature (from 850℃ to 1600℃). This removes moisture thereby increasing the alumina content. Compared to an alumina content of about 57 % to 58 % in raw Bauxite, ...

  • Welcome profit case study

    Mastel Aluminium-Halbzeuge GmbH in Talheim is doing very good business by turning all the aluminium cutting waste in production into profit. Shavings occur wherever planing work is done. If you replace planing with cutting, this statement applies accordingly to the imposing, 2600 sq.m. large production workshop of Mastel Aluminium-Halbzeuge GmbH where primarily aluminium is brought ...

  • Brushed Aluminium Composite Panel

    The processing craft of brushed aluminium composite panel is a kind of manufacturing process that repeatedly uses sandpaper to scrape out wires on the surface of the aluminum composite panel. The process is mainly divided into three parts: degrease, the sand mill and water scrubbing. In the wire drawing process of the aluminum composite panel, after the anode processing, the special skin ...

  • Different types of recycling crushers

    Crushers are mechanical devices that are primarily designed for reducing the size of bulky waste into small, easily manageable and compact pieces. This process is usually done by using high pressure to reduce the volume of the waste material. This task can also be done by compressing the overall mass of the trash. However, the crusher is mostly used for breaking big objects into small pieces. ...
