Meatball processing

Systematic increase in value added from the shredding process

Considering the rocketing prices of copper, meatballs and other copper material (cables) separated from the shredded scrap are becoming more and more valuable and make shredding a profitable undertaking.

The SICON Meatball Process is a cost-effective method by which copper is crushed in an innovative vertical shredder and separated into copper and ferrous fractions. This offers an extra source of revenue for shredder plant owners and improves their ability to compete.

The SICON vertical shredder can even handle electric motors of up to 3 kW/4 HP, which provides shredder plant owners with new sources of obtaining primary materials.

  • Sturdy welded construction with highly wear-resistant liners. All parts of the machine that come in contact with scrap are equipped with wear-resistant liners.
  • Simple to maintain thanks to the fact that wear tools are very easy to access and replace
  • Generously dimensioned rotor ball bearings for long plant life
  • Plants and systems can be designed to customer requirements
  • Fully automatic operation
  • Implementation to customer specifications also possible, including scrap feeding and separation of materials
  • Installed power up to 460 KW
