Copper Cable Shredder Machine

Cables are widely used in our daily life, from electric cable, power cable to communication cable and data cable. Most cables consist of a metal conductor inner housed in a plastic insulation, and the most common metals used in cable is copper. But why we need to recycle copper cable and how to recycle them? Size reduction machines such as copper cable shredder play important role in whole recycling process.


Why recycle copper cable?

Approximately 60 to 80% of the weight of cables comes from the metal contained inside it. The main driving force to recycle cable waste is to recover the valuable metal portion. Copper is also a non-renewable metal whose exploitation incurs serious environmental effects. Such metal after recycling doesn’t degrade, thus it can be recycled indefinitely. Every day a great amount of broken, unused and aged cables are discarded worldwide, taking up a large portion of e-waste. Accumulation of abandoned cable posts potential fire hazard which can bring harmful effects on nature and human beings. It makes great sense to recycle waste copper cables.


Recycling of copper cable

The decisive step in cable recycling processes is the possible entire separation of the metal fraction from the plastic insulation. A typical scrap cable recycling line consists of a combination of different shredders, granulators for material reduction and disintegration, as well as separation lines for separating metal from the plastic part. The reclaimed metals and plastic are then melted and reused to make new products.
