Copper Recycling Tempe Arizona
Copper recycling has become more prevalent over the years, especially in Tempe, AZ. One of the main reasons is that it is being used more in both computers, electronics and automobiles.
There are many different kinds of copper recycling in Tempe, AZ but one of the most prevalent is extracting Copper from different types of wires. Some of the more prevalent types of wires are known as MCM, Insulated #1 Copper Wire, Insulated #2 Copper Wire and Romex Wire.
The Copper Recycling recovery process from all of these types of Copper wires is basically the same. The wire is placed on a conveyer belt, the conveyer belt feeds the wire into a hopper where the wire is collected, the Copper wire is then sent through a pre-shredder which is a series of metal blades where it chops the Recycled Copper wires into small nodules between 3mm and 5 mm. The nodules are then sent into the grinder, the grinder is a horizontal shaft where the grinding blades are placed on the circumference of the shaft. The grinder granulates the Copper Wire and the insulation covering the Copper wire.
During the grinding process most of the contamination is removed due to the sheer tension of the grinder. The processed Copper Wire is then separated into contaminated and non contaminated compartments in the air separation chambers. The contaminated portion is the outer covering and the inner fillers and strength fibers that make up the insulation of the Copper Wire wire, while the non contaminated portion is the pure copper wire.
