UMS

Urban Mining Solutions

With roots in mineral processing, UMS "Urban Mining Solutions" has approximately 25 years of experience in application and further development of available technologies for recycling solutions. UMS builds on this foundation for its international customers' machines, "CORE" Machines 

(CO mmodity RE covery) and complete CORE systems for the recovery of valuable materials from recycling streams. 

WEEE | E-WASTE

TurnKey | Field Proven Plants

UMS supplies complete systems for the production of ferrous and non-ferrous metals, and high-value plastic fractions from WEEE.  In a core system WEEE automated and manual processes in terms of the most economical application are combined.

General CORE Systems are designed for fully continuous operation. Our CORE plants are flexible and adaptable to the feedstock.


PCBs

TurnKey | Field Proven Plants

The consequent development of the CORE-DHM with the aim of fine grinding of laminates spawned the CORE SYSTEM.  Wafer-thin metal layers can be separated in circuit boards from the glass fiber composite plastics.  With the separation of fiber from metal valuable precious metal material is produced.  PM recovery provides significant contributions to the economics of investing in a CORE system and offers rapid ROI.

Aluminum

Extrusions | Composites

The combination of CORE and CORE RKZ & DHM allows processing of aluminum-plastic laminates to high-purity granules which allow direct recycling bypassing the melt. Aluminium profiles, aluminum extrusions, lithographic plates, dibond, aluminum cans, aluminum coolers or aluminum radiators etc. both as production waste, as well as collected scrap, can be processed in a CORE system to acheive a signifigant upgrade to the material.


Mixed Metals

Aluminum w/ Red Metals

The purity of metal fractions is crucial to their market value.  The presence of a significant share of a second metal or contaminate in the salable fraction is often the reason for downgrades.  


CORE Systems with CORE LTH enable the separation of aluminum from red metals (e.g. copper, brass, zinc etc.) and increase added value significantly.


Engineering

Practical & Proven Solutions​

Adapting new to existing systems engineering often requires novel technical approaches. With CORE Engineering, UMS offers individual designs and/or drive systems and controls modifications.  New opportunities to process and upgrade materials necessitate new and creative solutions.  UMS Engineers will work to develop a solution that takes advantage of your existing equipment or incorporate changed into their equipment to suit the application.

CORE - Individual Machines

Field Proven Technology to delaminate & separate compound materials

CORE RCC

Rotor Chain Crusher

UMS’ CORE RCC is an internationally proven universal device for the first stage of the recycling process e.g. for electric and electronic waste (E-waste), blended metals, aluminum compounds etc. Objects with a unit weight of up to 65 lb and feed sizes of 24 inches can be processed.

CORE RCC is characterized by the following advantages:
- resistant against impurities like rocks & glass 
- uses flexible beaters as operating tools, which dismantle input materials but do not destroy the components
- highly energy-efficient 
- extremely low wear, very low operating cost 
- maintenance friendly bolt-in/bolt-out wear components

CORE DTS

Down to Size Shredder

UMS’ CORE DTS Down to size Shredder for homogenisation of size. DTS prepares the input materials for the further processing and delamination in the DHM. CORE DTS is an indispensable part of any recycling installation for compound materials. The shredder may be used to process fractions directly post the RCC Rotor Chain Crusher. Incorporating the know-how and experience in ore processing, the CORE DTS in its heavy-duty configuration is unsurpassed in energy efficiency, low tool and wear costs as well as service life. The CORE DTS is a critical step in the size reduction process to liberate materials from one another and prepare for final recovery and separation of commodities.

CORE DHM

Double Rotor Hammer Mill

UMS’ CORE DHM Double Rotor Hammer Mill for delamination of complex compounds. DHM prepares and forms the input compound for the final separation of the metals. CORE DHM is an indispensable part of any recycling installation for compound materials. The mill may be used to process fractions sized 80 mm or less. Incorporating the know-how and experience in ore processing, the CORE DHM in its heavy-duty configuration is unsurpassed in energy efficiency, low tool and wear costs as well as service life. The CORE DHM may be used as crusher, pulverizer and superfine mill and is available in different sizes.



Screening Machine

Separation by Size

UMS’ Screening Machine is used for separating materials by size. Screening is an important step before separating materials of different densities. With this device, diverse materials like copper and aluminum or plastics and aluminum are being grouped in sizes resulting in a high purity concentrate of each individual component. This makes the screening a critical component in any recycling plant for E-Waste, WEEE and any other compound material. UMS' Screening Machine  is available in different sizes to meet your processing requirement.

CORE AIR JIG

Density Separation

UMS’ CORE LTH  "Air Jig" is used for separating materials of different specific density.

CORE LTH is the universal unit for separating materials of different weight according to grain size and shape.  With this device, diverse materials like copper and aluminum or plastics and aluminum are being separated resulting in a high purity concentrate of each individual component.

This makes the CORE LTH a crucial component in any recycling plant for E-Waste, WEEE and any other compound material.  CORE LTH is available in different sizes to meet your requirement.

HAMOS

Separation by Conductivity

Due to its active principle, the HAMOS KWS is used for the dry separation of metals from plastics and other non-conductive materials. Even the finest metal particles <0.1 mm can be separated. This makes it possible, in a particularly economical manner, to recover valuable metals, to separate them, or to clean plastics before the further processing of metal parts. There is no wear and maintenance is only periodic cleaning, some of which is automated by scheduled blasts of air. The HAMOS-KWS is available in various sizes and the modular configuration allows for 

FIELD PROVEN SOLUTIONS​

INNOVATIVE FEATURES

GERMAN ENGINEERING

More than just a catch phrase, the Engineering staff of UMS is a disciplined team of highly educated mechanical engineers with a long tradition of quality who strive for perfection.  

ROBUST ROTOR DESIGN

Precision engineering and machining come together to form the components found in CORE equipment.  Painstaking attention has been paid to ensure easy and infrequent maintenance.  

INNOVATIVE DRIVE SYSTEM

25 years of machine building.  Only the best components are specified and utilized to ensure long service lives, efficient operation and maximum ROI.  No shortcuts. 

LOW WEAR BY DESIGN

Wear is the inescapable byproduct of processing.  With that in mind, UMS engineers CORE equipment with wear resistant materials such as HARDOX in all the right places to reduce operating costs associated with repair and maintenance.
