Did you know that every year in Germany, around 150,000 tons of old cables are recycled in specialized cable dismantling plants?
Even the smallest unrecovered copper losses of a few percent mean considerable financial losses for the cable recycler. With world market prices for copper around US$7,000 per ton, copper worth more than €200 per hour is sometimes lost together with the cable insulation.
A scrap cable reprocessing plant is therefore only particularly economical if the entire (!) valuable metal fraction is recovered from the scrap cables.
For this purpose, hamos offers dry-working electrostatic separators of the KWS type.

We will be happy to show you how much more metal you can get out of your cable plastics during a separation test using your original material as an example.
