Electric, electronic and cable scrap recycling plant
The world state-of-the-art for recovery of metals from electronic scrap involves incineration and melting as well as hydrometallurgical processes.. These processes are costly and associated with the release of floxines and cancerogenes. They require heavy and powerful machinery , a lot of materials – plastics, wood , textolites can not be recovered and are discarded for long term storage.
This technology provides possibility for treatment of electric and electronic scrap either with pre-treatment stripping of without it depending on capacity required..High-velocity impact comminution yields a selectively disintegrated product adapted for further magnetic and electrostatic separation into fractions representing non-metals, ferrous and non-ferrous metals containing PGM, gold and silver.
The plant is designed for production of a polymetallic concentrate containing gold , silver, platinum, palladium and other metals,the content of non-metals in the concentrate not exceeding 10%., the recovery of metals being within 92-98% depending on the scrap grade.
