Sweed Turbo Mill
Sweed, Gold Hill, Oregon, says its new Turbo Mill offers a new solution for recovering copper from low-yield wire. The turbo mill:
- separates copper wire from plastic surrounding it through its copper liberation process
- allows processors to use a larger 3/16-inch or ¼-inch screen, which more than doubles throughput and processes 4,000 to 5,000 pounds of material per hour
- ranges from 40 horsepower to 150 horsepower
- can integrate into any existing system
