Hey guys, this is Jason with Mt. Baker Mining and Metals and today we are going to run three different samples from a customer in Germany He sent these over DHL there are three different samples with three different characteristics this one is more like a electronic shred a bunch of wires, they all have gone through some various stages of magnetic separation there is still quite a bit of steel in this one’ and I think the goal here is going to be to liberate some more of the copper wire from the plastic and get the remaining steel out of this one This is the second sample we are going to run and this is mostly steel there may be a little bit of stainless in here but I think a lot of this will get sucked out with a magnet, there is a piece of stainless that will go through the magnet will pull out the ferrous and all the non-ferrous like the copper wire stainless and aluminum will go through This is the third sample he sent, which is mostly rubber and plastic there is some copper wire in here and a little bit of ferrous and probably aluminum as well we are going to run it through our HD hammer mill with a half inch screen and than under the mag belt and try and pull out as much ferrous as we can and show you what comes out the back side this is the hammer mill we are going to be running the samples through today this is our 24″ x 16″ HD hammer mill it’s especially designed for scrap metal processing we have ribs on the top and the back here it has between 12 and 24 hammers depending on your application and the screen in the bottom is a 1 inch thick screen rolled 180 degrees all the way on the bottom of this case and this current screen has 1/2 inch slots about 3 and a half inches wide it is run with a 30 horse electric motor it will discharge down onto this conveyor belt which you can either have a guy hand picking here if you wanted our have it go continuous up under the magnetic separation belt here this will pull out the ferrous material, we are going to use this tray to catch the ferrous from each sample and than the non-ferrous will continue up the conveyor belt and discharge off the end of the conveyor, this is one of our zig zag separators we do not have the air classifying system set up so this is just going to be a chute for today but the way this works is when the air is hooked up here, you pull a vacuum up from the bottom the heavier material comes across from the air flow up and it carries the light paper, light pastic anything, the string, the fluff will go up into the sucker and the heavier dense metals will come down into the bottom This is the stuff pulled out by the magnetic cross belt and at first we thought we were getting a bunch of copper wire with our steel but but than we realized that it’s all actually steel and a lot of it is coated with copper, here is a cow magnet you can see that’s a nice looking piece of copper wire that’s magnetic same with all this stuff down here, you take a magnet and it’s all steel wire it’s just copper coated here is the non-magnetic stuff this is what went under the cross belt magnet and this is all your non-ferrous and plastic and this can go on to further separation probably by a granulator and a air separation table or maybe a a eddie current after it’s been liberated more with a smaller screen in the hammer mill here is our magnet again hardly any magnetic it picked up so it’s all pretty clean Alright, so we have finished our samples Mark, we got your three different samples here, the magnetic and the non-megnetic we are going to bag some of this up for you and send it back to Germany and you can analyze them and see what you think Everyone else, thanks for watching our videos and we will see you on the next one

    Any feasible way to separate the copper coating from the steel wires?

    Somebody spent a bunch of money to send trash across the pond.

    Awesome machine I'm thinking the space that will be saved after hammer milled. Turn big chunks into 5 gal buckets that you can't pick up which means heavy money right there. Would love to have one but I'm not that large yet lol so my yard will be a big pile of scraps.

    Surely they could have done just this in Germany, no hi tech process involved.
