Copper is a 100 percent recyclable material. According to the Copper Development Association, the recycling rate of copper is higher than that of any other industrial metal in our daily life. Almost 75 percent of copper used comes from recycled copper scrap such as car wires, telephone wires, industrial copper wire, and cable wires. But do you know how to separate copper from scrap cable wires? Next, let's discuss this issue.
Copper wire recycling machine
Some people used to recycle cable wires through burning, but the recycled copper through burning is not pure even it will produce smoke and cause air pollution. So it is not the most suitable way to separate copper from scrap cable wires through burning.
Taking these reasons considered, DOING company improved this technology to process scrap cable wires, and dry type copper wire recycling machine is showing up. The main process of the copper wire recycling machine is crushing, air separation and electrostatic separation. First, Crushing the cable wires into small pieces so it can be separated in air separator because the gravity difference between copper and plastic.

For very thin wires, we also have electrostatic separator, it can separate thin copper from copper cables so the recovery rate could be assured to almost 100%, really achieved no copper in plastic and no plastic in copper. In addition, the dust removal system could ensure no dust fly around during the operation.
Compared with burnning and washing, separating copper from scrap cable wires is the most popular way to recycle copper. But beyond that, copper can be recovered from waste radiators or waste circuit boards. [This article may be you are interested: How is the development prospect of scrap copper wire recycling?].
