Robust. Flexible. Efficient.

Our units can handle anything.

Recycling is one of the most important global future industries – with a correspondingly dynamic technological development. Any company that wants to run at the head of the pack has to stay light on its feet. We’re therefore continuously optimising our units and separation plants to be able to quickly adapt to the needs of the steel industry. This keeps us in a position to offer our customers tailor-made solutions that significantly improve the efficiency and profitability of their melting processes.

The 2,000 h.p. shredding unit.

The shredder.

The shredder is the heart of our recycling process. At a strength of 2,000 h.p., it shreds a wide range of starting materials (light mixed scrap, auto bodies, combustion engines, MBA and EBS scrap, wood shredders and various metal composites) and separates them into three fractions (Fe fraction, heavy fraction and light fraction). These are then fed directly into our downstream separation plants or are transported to steelworks or thermal recycling facilities for their final utilisation.

Post-treatment of the heavy fraction.

The post-shredder plants.

In this processing step, the heavy fraction from the shredder is separated into homogeneous grades. Various separation plants, such as float-sink systems, eddy current separators and screening plants, enable us to achieve the greatest possible processing depth. The greater the precision of the separation, the higher the net value of the individual materials.

1,250 tonnes of cutting force.

The hydraulic shears.

The 1,250-tonne shears complete the list of our units. They shred nearly all types of scrap, irrespective of form and size, reducing it to sizes ranging from charging sizes up to marketable cupola grades.

Precise analysis.

Consistent, homogeneous quality.

The experts in our in-house laboratory determine the chemical composition of all incoming materials. We continuously take samples and analyse them using a spectrometer. The results not only serve as a basis for ascertaining specific values – of nickel content, for example – but also enable us to recognise harmful components, such as an elevated phosphorus value. In this way, we can always guarantee our customers uniform, homogeneous quality.
