SwissRTec, Kensington, New Hampshire, a company specializing in recycling technology, has announced the production of its largest delamination mill to date.

SwissRTec America Inc. is a wholly owned subsidiary of SwissRTec International of Switzerland. The company sells technology and mechanical systems to the international recycling industry and as of 2014 has expanded sales to the North American market. The company designs, builds and commissions turnkey e-scrap, scrap metal and ASR (automotive shredder residue) recycling facilities.

The company’s new CCM20RT is its largest delamination mill to date, boasting a 6.5-foot rotor diameter with a weight of 21 tons and a drive with up to 840 horsepower. More than a decade of experience has gone into designing and building the mill, along with the companion systems for complete milling and separation, SwissRTec says.

“The new mill was produced to meet the growing trend in the marketplace for larger recycling systems,” says Bernhard Mueggler, president and CEO of SwissRTec America Inc. “The machine is also needed because of growing demand within the auto shredder residue sector for a high-capacity mill capable of producing unrivaled liberation and ball-shaping of metals alongside a machine which is rugged enough to withstand the rigors of ASR processing.”    

The CCM2ORT, as well as SwissRTec’s smaller delamination mills, the CCM10 and CCM15, will be equipped with new, high-efficiency drive systems, the company says. These systems will not only increase the efficiency of the delamination mills by 5 to 7 percent, but operators also will benefit from the lower energy cost, seeing at least a 5 percent reduction, according to SwissRTec.

The SwissRTec SRT2 system, which incorporates the delamination mill and separation system, is in operation in numerous ASR plants worldwide, the company says.

The company says its core focus is on shredding, delamination, separation and recovery of high-yield and quality valuable raw materials from composite waste streams, such as waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE), cables, printed circuit boards, mixed scrap metal, aluminum composites and other items. Its products include delamination mills and impact mills that use thousands of collisions to break down preshredded composite materials, isolate various components then mill them into tiny, smooth balls for separation.
