Copper wire granulator machine | scrap cable wire recycling machine

copper granulator machine

A copper wire granulator machine uses pulverization, sorting, and other methods to separate the copper core in waste wires and cables from the outer plastic shell. The separation efficiency of this copper wire recycling machine has reached 99.5%, and the final product can be directly for sale. The scrap copper wire recycling machine adopts a dry separation method and dust removal system with no water and air pollution. The waste copper wire granulator is more and more popular in the cable and wire recycling industries.

Why need to recycle scrap copper wires and cables?

Every year there are a large number of wires and cables that are eliminated because of the aging of the line, many of these waste cables and wires are copper wires with high recycling value. The copper wires and cables have high copper content and of high purity. The recycling of scrap cable and wire reprocessing becomes a good environmental investment. Scrap cable recycling can also reduce environmental pollution and alleviate the problem of lack of metal resources. The recycled products can be widely used in many areas of the national economy.

Scrap cable wire recycling and stripping methods

Due to the high purity of copper in wires (purity equivalent to electrolytic copper), copper in wires and cables has a high recycling value. At present, there are three common recycling methods, namely incineration, manual stripping, and scrap copper stripping machine removal.


The incineration method is to ignite the plastic of the cable, leaving only the copper inside the wire after burning. The disadvantage of this method is that the combustion will cause certain harm to the environment, and it will also cause pollution during the secondary recovery.

Manual stripping method

The manual stripping method can only strip the larger diameter cables and wires. For small wires, there is no way for them to strip. In addition, the efficiency of manual stripping of wires is extremely low, the cost is very high.

Grinding and separating method

This copper cable granulator machine uses a dry method to separate the copper core and plastic. No reagents need to be added during the peeling process. The copper wire is hermetically processed inside the machine, so there is no dust flying. The efficiency of this copper wire recycling machine is very high, the output is 100-1000 kg per hour, which is equivalent to dozens of times of labor.

How does the copper wire granulator machine work?

The raw materials enter the copper wire granulator machine and are crushed by a scrap wire crushing machine first. Then, it separates the outer plastic of the wire from the inner copper wire and breaks it into materials within 3mm. Then, the material enters the conveying system, and the dust collecting fan collects and stores the dust in the collecting bag. After that, the material enters the sieving section, and the air sorter separates the copper and plastic and discharges them from different outlets.

Structure and composition of the copper wire recycling machine

This copper wire granulator machine is mainly composed of the crushing system, conveying system, dust removal system, specific gravity sorting system, tailing screening system, and control system. Wires with a diameter of less than 20mm can be directly placed in the scrap cable recycling machine for separation without classification.

The following table shows the main parts specification of the SY-600 copper wire granulator machine. The machine material is the standard type and it can be changed according to special demands.

Why do so many people welcome the scrap copper wire granulator?

At present, in addition to dry separation, common separation methods on the market also include wet separation, incineration, chemical reagent, and freeze separation.

However, these methods all have problems such as pollution and high consumption costs. The dry copper wire granulator machine uses a physical method to separate the plastic from the copper wire and does not produce any pollution during the production process. Moreover, you only need to invest in the copper wire recycling machine, and you do not need to invest any capital in the subsequent use. It can be said that this machine solves both the problem of pollution and the problem of high-cost consumption.

Features of the copper cable wire recycling machine

  • High separation efficiency

The separation rate of copper and plastic can reach 99.5%, but 3-5% of copper powder and fine copper wires will be lost to the plastic during the sorting process. Our company is equipped with electrostatic cleaning equipment to separate the remaining copper from the plastic again.

  • Integrated structure design

Compact structure, and small footprint, the machine can be used after it is placed on the horizontal ground.

  • PLC control

Simple and beautiful appearance, one worker can operate.

The cutter of the crushing system adopts the SKD-11 alloy cutter, and the processing hardness reaches HR58 degrees. Under the condition of ensuring high abrasion resistance, certain toughness of the crushing blade can also be guaranteed. The structure is designed as an alternating figure-shaped shear structure. The copper wire granulator machine adopts a water cooling system to avoid material heating and melting caused by long-term work.

One machine can be used to handle multiple sizes of cables without the need for classification.

As an important part of the separation of copper wire and plastic, gravity separation adopts the advanced air suspension separation process, and the vibration frequency and material suspension air supply device can be adjusted precisely according to different materials.
