UK crushing equipment manufacturer, BJD Crushers Ltd, has supplied three of its Hammermill crusher units for installation in plants which extract precious metals from spent automotive catalytic converters.
Supplied to global waste recovery specialist Tetronics International, each BJD 15x8 Hammermill is incorporated into one of Tetronics’ Plasma Arc precious metal recovery systems, which are capable of metal recovery rates of 98% or better. The valuable metal, recovered by the plasma arc smelting process, is first cast into sheet form before being crushed in the Hammermill to a required product size of 30 microns, making it ready for sampling and further processing. Planned for installation in Europe, the crusher order came on the back of an order for two identical machines supplied for Tetronics plants in the Far East.
BJD 15x8 Hammermills feature a heavy cast iron frame with heavy-duty renewable liners, and are fitted with a screen arrangement to match the duty. Mounted on a base frame, the modular packages supplied to Tetronics International, comprise Hammermill crusher, fully guarded drive arrangement and 15kW electric motor.
BJD Hammermills have, over the years, acquired an enviable reputation for being reliable, efficient machines for size reduction of friable and fibrous materials. They are part of a complete range of processing and recycling equipment from BJD Crushers Ltd, which includes Impactors, Double Roll Crushers, Mud Hogs, Flexmills and Flextooth Crushers.
