Cable Recycling diagram

There is a wealth of valuable metals present in WEEE (Waste of Electrical and Electronic Equipment) and cables. However, the recovery is often difficult due to the small particle size range and variable nature of the metals. With the development and launch of the ElectroStatic Separator [in 2020], Bunting now provides a complete multi-stage metal…

Ceramic Tiles

When fine iron and iron-bearing minerals contaminate the raw material used to produce ceramic tiles, the consequences are costly. Such iron contamination causes visual and structural defects as well as affecting the surface finish in terms of brightness and whiteness.  Tiles failing final quality checks are commonly returned for recycling. Those passing the initial quality…

Iron-Specked_Ceramic_Tableware-0537

Fine iron and iron-bearing minerals cause visual and structural defects in ceramic tableware.  Such contamination appears as small dark spots on the surface or is hidden within the body and causes premature cracking of the ceramic.  The cup, saucer or plate is then either rejected or reworked. Iron contamination The problem of iron contamination is…
