In this point we sort the shredding materials on mechanical separation.

Two separate lines One handles ferrous material like steel or anything contain iron content. & Other line handles non ferrous materials like alumnium, copper, & other things find in electronics.

At the shredders output side  magnet is pulling ferrous materials out.

It is economical & feasible way to recycle e waste. simply because we try to deconstruct everything you won’t able to keep up A & B a cost would be lot higher.

So  really try to shred lines essentially de manufactured it & break it down elaborate the materials from each other so that we at classification line the machine can sort everything out.

Classification Line

So at the last section of separation i.e classification line here try to do separate out materials those back into raw components.

Using sensors on the conveyor belt the copper, stainless steel, are separated from plastic material.
