PCB Shredder / PCB Crusher / Printed Circuit Board Shredder

Printed circuit board is also known as PCB or green board. They are used to mechanically support and electrically connect electronic components using conductive pathways, traces, etched from copper sheets laminated onto a non-conductive substrate. There are many old, non-working, un-repairable or discarded PCB. What should we do? Actually these PCB waste can be recycled for further use. Both populated and non-populated PCB can be recycled. All kind of PCB from cell phones and smart phones are good recycling materials. Size reduction of PCB scrap is one of the most important process in whole PCB recycling. PCB shredder or PCB crusher is ideal for this purpose.


Why we recycle printed circuit boards?

There are many benefits from Printed circuit boards recycling. Some of them are:

  1. – Normally printed circuit boards have different precious metals like silver, gold, copper, palladium and some other hazardous materials. PCB recycling can recover many metals which have good market price. Also this saves natural resource.
  2. – In the recycling process of these printed circuit boards, some professional PCB recycler can even recover up to 99% of the metals used to make the board. This is one of the reasons why PCB recycling is so popular.
  3. – Some circuit boards might contain some confidential information. Shredding or crushing in recycling process offer full destruction which effectively destroyed the stored data for complete peace of mind.
  4. Professional PCB recycling can ensure that hazardous materials are safely disposed of before separating the recyclable metallic materials. These hazardous materials cannot be disposed of in a landfill. The proper disposal can protect our environment.


What kind of PCB waste can be recycled?

There are many valuable resources can be recovered from PCB recycling. For example, copper metal from edge trim of printed circuit boards, tin metal from tin/lead solder dross in the hot air leveling process, copper oxide from wastewater treatment sludge, copper from basic etching solution, copper hydroxide from copper sulfate solution in the plated through holes (PTH) process, copper from the rack stripping process, and copper from spent tin/lead stripping solution in the solder stripping process.


PCB shredder or PCB crusher in PCB recycling

Size reduction as well as metal separation is the important process in PCB recycling. PROSINO brand is focus on shredding and granulating different kinds of waste materials. We offers several type of PCB shredder and PCB crusher as well as help you with a proper size reduction proposal for your scrap PCB’s.
