Epalme Project Description

In 2017, the GME Recycling Company, signed the contract for the Aluminium Profiles Recycling Plant Project with EPALME SA, Greece. > In the project, which built a Aluminium Recycling plant with an input capacity of 7 tons, in Greece, our Engineers were responsible for the engineering, procurement, execution and the installation supervision.

New shredder supplying for Al scraps

At the customer existing shredding line, GME changed the shredder only with scope to reduce the shredded pieces size, from 150 mm to 70/90 mm approx. in order to improve the bulk density of the shredded material, getting benefit on the furnace loading time and allowing the adding of one X-ray machine, to the existing sorting line, with scope of removing the Aluminium/Zinc (Al/Zn) alloy.
GME studied a new conception of mono rotor shredder driven by one low speed hydraulic motor, studied also new cuttings allowing the customer to re-fixing them on support several time, just turning before re-shaping.

Due the new design the customer got the benefit of:

Reduced shredded pieces size
Strongly reduction of ther power consumption (40% approx.) with same production rate
Drastically reduction of the re-grinding necessity (and cost) as the cuttings are turned several time before to be reshaped.
