In the different Eldan Cable Recycling Systems you will be able to process the following types of input:
Dry cables usually have copper or aluminium conductors. The insulation is made of plastic, rubber or paper. Power cables may have steel or lead armouring which can be processed in our cable stripper and then process further in an Eldan Cable Recycling Plant. After granulation and separation the metal fraction will have a purity of up to 99.5%.
Dry cables which can be processed in an Eldan Cable Recycling Plant are e.g.: hair-wire, harness wire, communication wire, installation wire, power cables with copper or aluminium conductors, copper wire, ACSR-wire and mixed household wire.
Jelly Filled Cables
The aim of the recycling plant for jelly cables is to separate the copper and plastic fractions from jelly filled cables and to produce clean copper granules free from jelly. The separation works on a sink float principle (closed re-circulation) with gravity of insulation fraction of less than one. If the jelly cables were to have insulation or other objects with a too high specific gravity, it would be necessary to add to the end of the system either a wet separation table or a dry separation table to separate the copper and plastic fraction. The purity rate of the copper fraction will be approx. 88% depending on the material which is being processed. It will, however, be possible to obtain a purity rate of minimum 94% by adding to the Jelly Plant an Eldan Water Separation System and up to 99% by installing an additional Eldan Spinner Separator.

The Jelly Cable plant is environmentally safe meaning that it does not require any special certification or monitoring.
Underground cables are heavy armouring cables consisting of a considerable amount of grease, plastics, paper and naturally lead and copper. What makes processing of underground cables so complex is the substantial amount of grease making the material stick together. Read more.
Depending on type of cables and size of plant the Eldan Cable Recycling System can give a final separation of at least 99.5% clean metal fraction of either aluminium or copper. The plastic fraction contains approximately 2-5% of metal. This fraction can then be further cleaned in a dry way with a Classifier and/or in a wet way on a Water Separation Unit.
