Austria-based equipment company Andritz says it has received an order from the Slovakian metals recycling company Saker to supply a Universal Rotary Shear UC and a Universal Granulator UG for the company’s plant in Zilina, Slovakia.

Startup of the new equipment is scheduled to take place before the end of 2018.

The shear will preshred larger input material that can then be further size-reduced in the second step, performed by the Universal Granulator.

Saker will use the shear and the granulator to process aluminum composites such as frames, profiles, trays, etc., as well as to shred transformers and cable scrap to separate aluminum and copper from the plastic sheathing. The recovered output material will be pure aluminum, copper and steel. The combined shredders will provide a maximum throughput of about four tons per hour, according to Andritz.
