Application Example: Auto Shredder Residue (ASR)

General Description

  • Treatment of old cars and "white goods"
  • Increasingly higher content of different materials: iron (~70%), plastic (~15%), non-ferrous metal (~8%), glass and others (~7%)
  • Recycling processes are becoming more and more sophisticated, demanding and complex

Requirements for Separation

  • Recovery of clean, low-copper steel
  • Output of clean non-ferrous metals as mixed metals (single sort aluminium and copper as well, depending on the region)
  • Separation of stainless steel without contaminants (also sorted by stainless steel quality upon request)

STEINERT Solutions for Shredder:

STEINERT KSS (Combination sensor sorting) uses shape recognition for better recovery of, e.g., ICW, batteries, airbags, etc.
