Applications
Plastics Granulating and shredding of plastic, such as injection moulded, blow moulded and roto-moulded parts, pipe, profile, sheet, film, lumps and other extruded materials, requires experience and knowledge in size reduction technology. As different as plastics can be, so to is the range of machines designed and built by Zerma. Zerma is ready to provide a customised solution for any task in the shredding, granulating or pulverising of any plastic. Rubber Due to the increasing number of cars and trucks around the world, used tyres are available in large quantities at low cost. With some innovative recycling, you can get a lot out of used tyres: granules in various sizes, steel and profit. The profitability naturally depends on the quality of the output material and a process that is as efficient as possible. Zerma designs systems dedicated to tyre recycling, which ultimately produces very high-quality materials. Final products could be for thermal recycling, predominantly in the cement industry, and crumb rubber of about 5mm size used in various applications. Wood Recycling in the wood industry generally means converting the input materials into a homogeneous product, which is then normally used as a fuel for various kinds of boilers. Input materials usually come in the form of cut-offs from joineries and saw mills, used wooden pallets, construction waste and similar sources. But it also can include other organic products like straws and husks, coconut shells and fibres, EFB, etc. The final size of the product very much depends on its use, it could be large chunks going directly into big industrial boilers; medium to small size chips for household boilers or to be processed into briquettes; small chips to sawdust to make pellets or to be used in chipboards and as fillers. E-Waste In light of raw material prices for precious metals as well as plastics, all types of electronic waste recycling has become more and more important with time. Talking about e-waste refers mostly to ‘white goods’, used home appliances such as fridges, washing machines, coffee makers and so on. These products generally contain high value plastics and precious metals, in most countries they are collected separately or taken back by producers and dealers. Another important sector of electronic waste recycling is recycling of all sorts of cables.
