WEEE shredder and escrap shredding are in need. The speed at which the electronic equipment we buy becomes obsolete has increased the amount of material available to the metal and plastic recovery market. A number of collection points are available to individuals with end-of-life or discarded appliances to recycle in North America and Europe.
Some white goods shops provide buy-back or recycling programs to customers. Many local governments (municipalities etc.) provide collection services for major appliances, which may include pick-up or drop-off options. However, Home Appliance Recycling Systems are still not enough to process the current amount of electronic waste we geneate.
The working principle of the home appliance recycling system (WEEE recycling system) is simple. Computers, laptops, smartphones, USB sticks, credit cards, microwaves, washing machines, are just some examples of the products that can be downsized by a WEEE shredder, and from which different materials can be extracted. The percentage of materials that can be recovered exceeds 90%. From escrap, a recycling plant can recover metals, copper, aluminum and precious metals. The recycled plastic can be reused for making home appliance housing.
Please note that many major appliances used for cooling or freezing purposes (refrigerators, freezers, dehumidifiers and air conditioners) include refrigerants, which can be harmful to the environment and human health if they are not properly handled and disposed of. Individuals should NEVER attempt to extract refrigerant from major appliances, which should only be handled by licensed professionals.
Two-shaft shredders are the ideal machines for the volumetric reduction phase, while it is with three or four-shaft shredders that the regulated size is achieved, leaving it ready for the phase of pulverizing the materials and subsequent separation.
Home appliance shredders are used in white goods recycling lines, where the main purpose is to break down into the different materials of household appliances (iron, plastic, polyurethane, aluminum and copper, etc.). Therefore, manual sorting and metal separation are easier to operate.
The two-shaft shredders are used as primary crushers during the first phase of volumetric reduction, while the three and four-shaft models are used as secondary crushers, as they allow for controlled output material size. With its 50,000Nm of torque per shaft, with a wide variety of shaft configurations, chassis type and power sources available.
