As aluminium scrap shredder manufacturers, we are tuned in to the markets demand for ever stronger and lighter manufacturing materials. This quest for lighter and stronger materials has caused an explosion in the demand for aluminium and as a consequence, clean aluminium scrap. Re-melting recovered aluminium to make new aluminium products requires only 5% of the energy that it takes to manufacture virgin aluminium from ore.
To maximize the efficiency and profitability of the remelting process, it is vitally important that the recovered aluminium scrap is free of contaminants. Unsorted aluminium scrap can be highly contaminated with glass, plastic, rubber, other metals, paint and more. To free the scrap aluminium from these contaminants it must first be reduced in size by shredding.
