In the metal scrap recycling process, the recycle of non-ferrous metals gets more stress because of their great value. However, efficiently recycling plastic tailings also can produce great economic and environmental profits. In the recovery of tailing materials for re-use this has resulted in second generation products. For example, PVC is recycled in pallets or directly reused to manufacture insulation of electric cables, insulation tape, car mats, etc.
Since cable stripping and cable chopping are the most frequently used methods in scrap metal recycling, let’s knew how to realize the value of the plastic tailings in these conditions. Processors that recover the tailings from stripping operations are in a favored position to recycle these tailings for they usually contain either PVC or polyethylene. Normally, a stripping operation uses a pre-segregated feedstock that produces a defined waste stream of one plastic. Developing countries, where stripping processes are widely used, should not represent a disposal problem if plasticized PVC or other plastic insulations are managed in and environmentally sound manner. The purity of the recycled plastic can be up to 99.5% and reused in sheets, industrial floor tiles and shoe soles.
Chopping operations allow not only the separation of coated cables but also the additional separation step to remove the paper from the plastic. Although the purity of plastic produced by chopping operations can’t be compared with stripping process, it can up to 95% if the cable chopper uses a pre-segregated feedstock of cable wastes and removes essentially all residual metal.
The physical properties of the recovered PVC and the re-use market will depend to a large extent on the purity of the material, therefore choosing a goo-function wire stripping machines and copper granulator is very important.
