Clean shredded scrap – reliable and cost efficient

SICON’s PrimeScrap is used for efficient cleaning of shredded scrap to have meatballs, non-ferrous materials or non-metal materials removed from the main material stream.


Material is introduced on a vibrating pan feeder and is transported via chute to the conveying belt of the PrimeScrap where it is accelerated to 20 ft/s (6 m/sec). The material is passed on to the head drum which is equipped with a magnet system where it is being ejected. Nearly all non-magnetic objects are removed from the material main stream and are delivered to a separate chute.

The PrimeScrap combines highly efficient shredder scrap cleaning with a high throughput volume.
