As for air conditioner radiators, the copper content in it is about 55%, the remaining is aluminum and little iron. Because the price of copper is pretty high, we should extract as much copper from waste radiator.

By processing 1 ton of waste air conditioner radiator, you will get about 0.5 ton of copper.

The first machine is called large-scale radiator recycling machine. This machine is professionally to process and recycle the waste radiators, like waste air conditioner radiators or car water tank radiators. Its structure is simple, just consists a shredder, crusher, negative pressure baffle sorting machine, magnetic separator and air separator. Each part has its effect. The shredder is to cut the radiators into pieces. The crusher is to crusher these small radiator pieces. As for the negative pressure baffle sorting machine and magnetic separator, it is aimed to separate the aluminum with light weight and remove iron metal. And the air separator will separate copper from aluminum according their different gravities. Due to the separation rate is 99%, so you can get about 0.5 ton of copper by processing 1 ton of waste radiators.
