It is no doubt that the development of metal scrap recycling is an irresistible trend. More and more new methods are adopted to get better recycling effect; of them, copper cable granulator and wire stripping machine are two important equipment in the mechanical separation method. But how much do you know about them? What should we notice in using them? What are the similarities and differences of copper cable granulator and wire stripping machine?
First, let us know about these two machines. Copper granulator, also named scrap wire recycling equipment, is a machine used for crushing copper scrap and later separating copper from the plastic. Wire stripper machine is a kind of machine stripping the plastic coving the wire from the metal core. Both of them belong to eco-friendly machines.
Next, I will introduce the common points and different points of them and what we should notice in using them.
1) The requirements of raw materials: Many kinds of cables can be processed by copper cable granulator such as electric wire, motorcycle electric wire, and computer wires etc, but the diameter of wires should be below 20 mm. Contrary to the requirements of copper cable granulator, the wires which can be processed by wire stripping machine have a wide range of 1-90mm, but every model has its specific demands. Besides, the wires it deals with include but not limit in copper cables and the wires should be straight without knot.
2) Process mode: For the copper cable granulator, the copper cable scrap is shredded by crusher first and later separated from the plastic by Air Gravity Separator. The purity of copper granulator depends on the quality of your selected machine. Meanwhile, the wire stripping machine is to strip the cover of the wires completely, therefore the end- product we get is pure copper or other non-ferrous metals.
After we have a basic understanding of these two machines, we can make a choice according to our needs. But what we should notice is testing the machines before using it and operating it according to the guide. What’s more, I should stress that all my analysis mainly take reference from the materials of copper cable granulators and wire stripping machines of Whirlston.
