How to maintain your recycling machinery for optimal performance

A good, high-quality piece of recycling equipment can last for many years, however, without proper maintenance and preventative measures, this can be shortened by a significant amount. In this blog, we’ll discuss some of the most important methods to help keep your equipment in great condition, allowing you to use your investment for many years to come. Always Keep Spare Parts It’s difficult to know when your machine will begin having onset issues, or fail completely. Because of this, it can be incredibly beneficial to keep a selection of spare parts on hand. You should store standard spare parts of any machine you operate, ready to be replaced in case of equipment breakdown. For rarer, or more expensive parts, it’s always worth keeping a point of contact with your supplier in case you need to order a replacement part. Check Your Equipment Daily Performing regular maintenance checks on your equipment can help you not only have a better understanding of how your machine works, but also give you a general idea of which parts are ageing, or likely to fail soon.  When checking your equipment, you should be checking for any points which need greasing, any filters which need cleaning or replacing as well as any dust or debris buildup which may need clearing. Doing this will protect seals, motors and other moving parts as well as reduce heat exposure to the machine. If your machine has them, it’s also worth checking foot pedals and control cables to ensure the safe operation of your machine. Cable granulators, for example, require more attention and should be checked more often to ensure airlines and filters are clear. You should also always have 3 sets of blades per [...]

Why a used recycling machine could be a good bet

The thought of investing in used recycling machinery might initially raise concerns, but in reality there can be benefits for some over purchasing new equipment. In this blog post, we will explore the positive aspects of buying used machinery including cost savings, environmental benefits, and the importance of maintenance. Cost Savings It’s no secret that new machinery can be quite costly.  For those just starting out or on a limited budget, a brand new piece of equipment might be preferred but simply not an option.   However if you buy used machinery from the right source, you can still purchase a high-quality and long-lasting product at a great price. This allows you to allocate your budget more efficiently and potentially invest in other areas of your recycling operations. Environmental Benefits Being in the recycling industry, you understand the significance of reusing materials to conserve natural resources. By buying used recycling machinery, you are not only saving yourself money but also can contribute to reducing the demand for raw materials. By engaging in the buying and selling of used machines, we can minimise waste and prevent unnecessary landfill and incineration.  Quality & Maintenance Although some of the machines we sell are sold "as is" withouth any work, the majority of the used equipment we receive is fully reconditioned before resale.   We ensure that it is in excellent working order and take pride in providing high-quality used equipment that both meets your operational needs and looks as new as it can look. Our own McIntyre branded machines are built to last in any event, with some of the first McIntyre machines (dating back to 1975) till working in the industry today.  As such a reconditioned McIntyre machine can [...]

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 [...]
