How to recycle copper and aluminum radiators?


Why do we need to recycle copper and aluminum radiators?

As living conditions improve and standards rise, a large amount of waste such as air conditioner radiators and car radiators is produced every year. The materials used in the production of radiators are mainly copper and aluminum, which have a high recycling value. However, how to effectively separate copper and aluminum and enhance the reuse value is an urgent problem that needs to be solved. Now generally use manual separation means, labor intensity, low automation, and easy cause of environmental pollution.

Radiator copper and aluminum separation equipment can first crush the waste radiator to a certain size, and then metal sorting, its high degree of automation, sorting metal particles of high purity and high efficiency of the waste radiator crushing and sorting line.

The scrap radiator copper and aluminum separation equipment can be processing all kinds of large blocks of the radiator(copper and aluminum water box) or motor rotor(with axle)≤15cm. The scrap radiator is shredded and then crushed into 3cm particles. Through the magnetic separator, iron is separated. Then the airflow separator can sort the copper, aluminum, and plastic. The equipment has features of the new design, nice appearance, unique and large capacity. Whole plant PLC controlling, one-time feeding, multi-machine cooperated processing; with automatic shutdown device and the overload automatic alarm device. The successful development of the processing line greatly liberates the productive forces and improves the metal recycling quality. Most importantly, it solves the problem of dust overflow effectively, reducing the pollution of the air.

Workflow of radiator recycling:

Radiator Recycling machine process

Shredding – The twin-shaft shredder can crush, tear and shred waste radiators into strips of material 5 cm wide and of uneven length. The chopped material can be placed evenly in the crusher to improve crushing efficiency and increase production.

The crushing-hammer crusher allows the blades to rotate at high speed, thus creating impact and shear forces on the material placed, thus crushing the material and providing a uniform size material for subsequent sorting.

Magnetic Separation-Crushed metal passes through a belt magnetic separator on a conveyor belt and the iron in the material is separated by the magnetic separator.

Airflow Specific Gravity Separation – The airflow classifier has a fan inside. After the crushed material enters the airflow classifier, the lighter aluminum will fall into the airflow classifier under the action of its own density and wind, thus separating most of the aluminum in the material. Therefore, depending on the specific gravity of copper and aluminum, the airflow sorter discharges copper and aluminum from different outlets.
