Replacing faulty wiring will involve identifying which cables and wires are damaged or inoperable prior to removing them and disposing of them. Did you know that tossing out metal or plastic components is not only wasteful, but could essentially result in throwing money away? Copper and other valuable metals can be recycled for cash, and a cable granulator will aid in separating a cable or wire's coating from the materials that are nested inside of the sheath.
How Does A Granulator Work?
A granulator contains a feeder, a crusher, a conveyor belt, a dust removal area, and separation bins. Granulators can be compact or large in size and you should choose a model based on how much room is inside of your industrial setting and the amount of cables or wires that you or your employees tend to throw away on a regular basis. As cables or wires are fed through the front of the machine, they are split and the casing is removed from the center components.
Because dust is removed during the process, you won't need to worry about the inside air quality of your facility being compromised. A granulator works for cables and wires of various thicknesses, and the motor that is inside of a granulator can be adjusted to accommodate your electrical supply.
What Type Of Schedule Will Work Best?
If you already recycle materials at your business and copper, other metals, and plastic are going to be collected via a cable granulator, fit in your recycling efforts with the schedule that you currently maintain. For instance, if you have recyclable materials picked up from your business on a weekly basis, granulate cables and wires each day to ensure that the components will be ready to be picked up with the other materials that are going to be recycled.
If you tend to accumulate recyclable materials and then transport them to a recycling center, you have more time to complete the wire separation process. Before any of your employees are given free rein to use the granulator, show them how to operate and clean the machinery.
Cleaning should be performed on a routine basis so that the granulator's mechanical parts will continue to move freely. Store a few bins next to the granulator and label the containers with a specific material type. After each use of the machine, instruct the operator of the equipment to place the separated materials in the bins that have been assigned.
