Cable Recycling Equipment

These machines are known by many names. They are commonly referred to as a cable recycling machine, wire recycling machine, copper wire recycling machine, copper wire chopper, wire chopping line, wire chopping machine, wire granulator or cable granulator. There is no wrong or right, call them what you like.

Phoenix

Wire Recycling Mini-Plant



PHOENIX is a professional turn-key mini-plant with the substantial capacity to process *1,200-2,500 input lb/per hour with mixed cable, depending on size and yield.  Process approximately 120,000 lb/per month with a one-shift operation. This estimate includes maintenance downtime for blade changing and lubrication. The cutting mill is equipped with a premium efficiency IE3 50 hp motor.   Add 25% capacity by adding a free standing CM50, called  Phoenix +


The power requirement is 100 amps, three phase 480V circuit. (400V 50Hz outside USA).  The mini-plant is shipped in a 20 ft. container, with only 4 hour on-site assembly required. Final installation assistance and training is provided by a Copper Recovery representative. Although compact in size, the cutting mill has an inner width of 20 inches, which facilitates easy conveyor feeding.  Magnetic separator final conveyor with magnetic drum head is included as a standard feature.


Wire should be pre-sorted to achieve maximum output and in certain cases pre-cut, if not flexible, by means of a hand cutter or alligator shears. Smaller plastic cable spools, coils, bundles, and rats nests can be fed directly onto the in-feed belt conveyor. Engineered for an extremely long service life, this heavy duty machine offers multiple ways to achieve high production. Whether you choose to run it in shifts or expand with a pre-shredder, Phoenix is built to last.

Phoenix PLUS

Additional CM50 Cutting Mill speeds up production by 25% - 100%!


PHOENIX PLUS is a professional turn-key mini-plant with the substantial capacity to process *1,200-2,500 input lb/per hour with mixed cable, depending on size and yield.  Process approximately 150,000 lb/per month with a one-shift operation. This estimate includes maintenance downtime for blade changing and lubrication. The cutting mills are equipped with a premium efficiency IE3 50 hp motor.   This "PLUS" version adds another cutting mill for a 25% - 100% capacity increase by incremental size reduction.  Larger screens are used in the primary cutting mill which subsequently reduces the time material remains in the final cutting mill allowing for higher production.

The power requirement is 150 amps, three phase, 480V. (400V, 50Hz, 94 kW outside USA) The wire chopping line is shipped in a 40 ft. container, with only 8 hours of on-site assembly required. Final installation assistance and training is provided by a Copper Recovery representative. Although compact in size, the cutting mills have inner widths of 20 inches, which facilitates easy conveyor feeding.  This additional cutting mill configuration is best suited for customers who have pre-cut scrap, production scrap or customers who may already have pre-shredders. Magnetic separator final conveyor with magnetic drum head is included.  Over-belt magnetic separators for mill in-feed conveyors are available as optional equipment.

Wire and cables should be pre-sorted to achieve maximum output and in certain cases pre-cut, if not flexible, by means of a hand cutter or alligator shears. Smaller plastic cable spools, coils, bundles, and rats nests can be fed directly onto the in-feed belt conveyor. Engineered for an extremely long service life, this heavy duty wire chopping machine offers high production in a very small space. Whether you choose to run it in shifts or expand with a Wagner pre-shredder and or Copper Recovery SB15 dosing silo, Phoenix PLUS is built to last. 

Phoenix XD...

Automated Wire Chopping Line with Pre-Shredder and Variable Speed Dosing Silo


Floor space is costly and must be maximized for profitability.

We make best use of yours with up to 27 possible standard layouts.

Double your capacity and halve your manpower with Phoenix XD fully automated wire chopping line.  Our mini-plant, Phoenix, is upgradeable to Phoenix XD at any time with our "XD Upgrade" module.  You never lose your initial investment if you first purchase Phoenix then decide to upgrade later, in fact over 60% of our customers go this route.  The included Wagner WS30 60 HP Shredder features a large infeed hopper capable of handling large coiled material and gaylord quantity loads at a time!  No pre-cutting necessary.  No need to de-spool plastic spools.

SB15 Dosing Silo is a purpose built, 360-degree rotatable machine which features a variable speed discharge auger with oversized flighting.  Helical Bevel gearboxes, shrink disk attached to an alloy shaft ensures high performance and long term reliability.  SB15 serves as a buffer between the Shredder and Cutting Mill.  Variable speed output allows the operator to optimize Cutting Mill production.  SB15 is the key to maximizing productivity. Better than ever, SB15 is "Equipment Built for Production".

Total plant power rating is under 200 Amps @ 480VAC.  (400V 50Hz 112 kW on request)  Phoenix XD ships in (1) 40' and (1) 20' container. Minimal on-site assembly is required.  On-site installation assistance, machine operation training and process training is provided by a Copper Recovery representative and always included. We have been running the old version of this plant for nearly 15 years now.  The new version, Phoenix XD, is vastly improved in materials, quality, and execution for an even longer life of profitable and reliable production.
