Profit from Cable Granulators

In today’s climate and considering financial factors, we all want to ensure that we are doing our bit for the environment and that we are using only cost-effective machinery and processes to save or even generate money. In this blog, we will focus on having a better understanding of cable granulators, the different types, and how at JMC, we can help your scrap yard become cost-effective by purchasing a cable granulator.    What is a cable granulator?  A cable granulator is a clever piece of equipment used to chop up copper cables and then separate the plastic from the cable.  By separating the plastic from the copper, you end up with a finished product of almost pure copper granules.  Why are they used/important?  The importance of cable granulators is the function they provide, by separating the copper and plastic in the components of the cable. They have emerged as an innovative piece of technology within the recycling industry and are an environmental protection machine used to recycle a variety of cables and electrical wires. This piece of machinery allows the recovery of other essential materials, ensuring cost-effectiveness.    The types of granulators  There are three types of cable granulators, the wet, the dry, and static type.  The wet type granulator is a traditional type of cable granulator which mainly uses a gravity shaker, using water to separate copper from the plastic. The dry type granulator uses air classifiers or an air shaker. The static type high voltage electrostatic separation to detach the copper and plastic from each other.    JMC Recycling and cable granulators Having tried all the granulator types on the market, we ourselves have installed a full dry type cable granulation system manufactured [...]

How To Reduce Your Transport Costs

As we are aware, increases in prices across all industries are affecting us in the current climate, including the rise in fuel prices. The recycling industry is no stranger to high fuel costs and their impact on the industry. In this blog, we will discuss how you can keep your transport costs low and why it’s important to keep your costs low overall.    Why is it important?  We all know that keeping our costs low is an important part of the business. Keeping transport costs to a minimum allows other areas of the business to thrive. Although we cannot control the rising costs of fuel, which can greatly affect the cost of transportation, we can use certain methods and processes that allow us to add weight and reduce the number of trips necessary to deliver our materials. With inflation due to rise from 2% to 6%, it is more important now than ever to try and keep costs as low as possible.    Balers  A baler is a great way to keep your transport costs low. Balers compact loose metal into blocks which can be easily stacked and transported. The compaction achieved by our balers means more weight per load, fewer trips and less fuel. As an added benefit, saving fuel also reduces your carbon emissions! JMC Recycling has a range of new and used balers available to suit all operations see *here* for a range of our top quality balers at best possible prices. Container Tilters  Container tilters (or loaders) are another great way to fit a larger quantity of materials into a shipping container. By tipping to either 45 or 90 degrees depending on the option you choose, a container tilter allows [...]
