Waste wire is brought into a recycling center as baled or loose wire.
Wire is placed on a conveyor and travels to a shredder where it is ground up and shredded into small pieces. This separates the insulation from the wire.
The shredded pieces are conveyed under inline self-cleaning overhead magnet. The magnet removes metallic shredded wire pieces from the conveyor and drops them into a container below.
The remaining non-metallic pieces are conveyed to a separate container for collection and disposal.
