Printed circuit boards (PCBs) are ubiquitous in electronic devices but present significant challenges in handling due to their complex composition and potential environmental hazards. The circuit board recycling machine is currently an efficient and environmentally friendly method for processing printed circuit boards (PCBs). It can not only maximize the resource recovery rate and bring good profits, but also reduce environmental risks.

Here's a comprehensive look at why circuit board recycling machine is the best way for PCB recycling.

1.Resource Recovery

PCBs are a treasure trove of valuable materials including copper, gold, silver, palladium, and various plastics. Traditional disposal methods like landfills or incineration result in the loss of these resources and contribute to pollution. However, circuit board recycling machine uses technologies such as mechanical crushing and physical separation to recycle these precious metals. This not only conserves natural resources by reducing the need for virgin material mining but also creates economic incentives as the recovered metals can be sold back into the market.

2.Economic benefits

The products of circuit board recycling machine are mixed metal and resin fiber. Generally speaking, most customers will choose to sell mixed metals directly. Because this way is convenient and profitable. The other is to extract precious metals through a precious metal purification process and sell them as raw materials for different metal products. The latter will be more profitable, but precious metal purification requires specialized equipment.

Usage of final productsUsage of final products

Resin fibers can be sold to some factories, especially for processing resin powder, because the resin powder can be further ground into new products such as floor paint, heat insulation materials, and fireproof materials. But in some countries, resin fibers must be disposed of in landfills because resin powder is considered a hazardous waste in these countries. Here is a profit analysis we have done before for reference.

3.Environmental Protection

DOING circuit board recycling machine adopts mechanical crushing and physical separation methods to process waste PCBs to obtain metal and resin fiber. Compared with chemical method, dry type physical method do not use chemicals and will not produce water pollution, so there is no need for additional costs to treat wastewater. For the presence of dust, our circuit board recycling machine will be equipped with a pulse dust removal system to ensure a clean working environment.

4.Efficiency and Automation

The entire process includes shredding, crushing, eddy-vibrating screen, air separation and electrostatic separation with vacuum feeding and pulse dust collection. During PCBs recycling process, PCBs would be firstly shredded or crushed, then sieved by eddy-vibrating screen and separated through air separation and electrostatic separation, which could achieve the recovery rate to 99%. With the PLC control system, it could make the circuit board recycling machine fully automatic with stable performance, easy to operate.

The raw materials that the circuit board recycling machine can process include computer boards, TV boards, printed circuit boards, copper-clad boards, various waste circuit boards and other waste materials. Given the diversity of PCB designs and compositions across different electronic products, DOING circuit board recycling machine is designed with flexibility in mind. It can handle a wide range of PCB sizes, thicknesses, and material combinations, ensuring a broad applicability across the electronics waste recycling business.Circuit board recycling machineCircuit board recycling machine

Due to its ability to recycle metal resources, high profitability, environmental protection, efficiency and flexibility, circuit board recycling machine has become the best way for recycling PCBs on the market. The production capacity of DOING circuit board recycling machines ranges from 100kg/h to 2t/h, which is more suitable for the needs of different investors.
