SSI Manufactures Shredding Systems For a Wide Range of Scrap Metal Applications
Shredding of metals for volume reduction can simplify material handling, minimize storage space and reduce transportation and disposal costs. SSI has built shredders to process light scrap in a metal recycling yard, or materials generated by a manufacturer, such as aluminum extrusion from a door or window manufacturer. SSI shredders have also been used to prepare metals to feed into high-speed hammermills.
Metals destined for recycling are often baled or briquetted to facilitate handling and reduce transportation costs. However, once material arrives at the processing facility, processors often wish to shred bales or briquettes to improve furnace feeding and the efficiency of the remelting or delacquering process. SSI Shredders also help to liberate trapped contamination, upgrading the quality of the metal and its value.
<strong>Precious Metal Recovery</strong>
Electronic scrap including computer drives, monitors, telephone-switching gear, and circuit boards contain precious metals such as gold, silver and platinum. Recovery facilities have used SSI low-speed shredders to preprocess bulky components to make it easier to liberate metals.</strong>
