Process flow

Equipment's preparation
The external electrical cables and the items containing hazardous components are removed.

First shredding
The equipment is cut in smaller pieces for an easier sorting of certain materials and components.

Manual sorting
Some components like condensers, transformers, printed circuits boards, etc. are sorted in order to be treated on other lines.

Second shredding
Its role is to reduce the dimension of the fractions.

Fractions’ separation
a) magnetic separation: for ferrous fractions
b) inductive separation: non-ferrous metallic fractions (ex: aluminium, copper, etc.) and non-metallic fractions (ex. plastic, wood, rubber, etc.).
