How To Recycle Copper From Wires And Cables By Copper Granulator?

Scrap wires and cables are everywhere. There is abundant copper in wires and cables. As you know, copper has a high recycling value,so how can we recycle copper from wires and cables with higher purity and sell it at a good price?

Currently, the dry physical separation method is the best way to recycle copper from waste copper wires and cables, because this method does not pollute the environment and has a high separation rate and purity.

Copper granulator is designed to process scrap copper wires and cables into small granules for recycling. This machine adopts dry physical separation method with a combination of shredding, crushing, and separation technologies to separate the copper from the plastic insulation of the wires and cables.

How does copper granulator work to recycle copper?

The working principle and operation of the copper wire granulator is simple. You only need to feed the waste copper wires and cables from the inlet, and the separated copper granules and plastic granules will come out from the different outlets on the left and right sides.

Feeding: Scrap wires and cables are fed into the copper granulator through the feed port on the top of the machine.

Shredding: Initially, the copper wires are shredded into smaller pieces.

Separation: The shredded material then goes through a series of processes to separate copper from other materials (such as plastic insulation or other metals like aluminum).

Gravity Separation: In some copper granulators, heavier copper pieces can be separated from lighter plastics using gravity. This involves shaking tables or air classifiers that exploit the density differences between copper and plastic.

Mechanical Separation: Other copper granulators use mechanical methods such as screens, magnets, or eddy currents to separate copper from the shredded material. Magnets can pull out ferrous metals (like iron), while eddy currents can separate non-ferrous metals (like copper and aluminum).

Granulation: After separation, the pure copper granules are typically produced. These granules are usually uniform in size.
