Eldan Recycling, based in Faaborg, Denmark, has installed a new cable granulation and separation plant at an existing Eldan Recycling customer facility in Italy.

The new plant is designed to process about 4 metric tons of mixed cables per hour. The system, valued at around €1 million (US$1.35 million), includes a Multi Purpose Rasper (MPR160), Heavy Granulator (HG169), a Fine Granulator (FG1504), Separation Table (C22) and a Classifier (PC12).

According to Eldan, the individual machines can be adjusted for various types of dry cables such as hair-wire, harness-wire, communication wire, etc. Eldan says the output material, whether aluminium, copper and organic/insulation, can have a purity of 99.5 percent or better clean metal fraction.

The company says the recent install is one of a number of new installations in recent years at both new and existing customer facilities.

“We are very proud of our returning customers that continue to choose us year after year,” says Flemming Hansen, Eldan product manager for cable and WEEE. “Many of them have had our machinery running for up to several decades. The durability of our machinery is certainly one of our trademarks.”

Eldan Recycling manufactures equipment for the recycling of tyres, cables, electronic waste (WEEE) and refrigerators. The company says it is one of the few manufacturers with its own manufacturing facilities. Services range from design and fabrication to delivery, installation and after-sales service.

Eldan has installed more than 830 complete plants and 7,100 single machines in more than 60 countries, the company says.
