Aluminium recycling plants

Ecowair engineers design and produce plants for the recycling and recovering of aluminum parts. Each luminium recycling plant is composed by a machine that crushes the aluminum (called crusher) and of systems for removing the painting from the material that has to be recycled. Ecowair offers fully automatic aluminium recycling plants that do not require a constant supervision by the operator.

Aluminum is a suitable material for many applications. These are its main characteristics:

  • It is light and impact resistant
  • It is durable and corrosion resistant
  • It is non-toxic and does not alter the food that contains, therefore it is often used in the food sector
  • It is not ferromagnetic, which means that it can be used in devices for radio, radar and stereo transmission
  • It has a good thermal and electrical conductivity
  • It is malleable, ductile and easy to work
  • It allows to make different alloys with particular characteristics
  • It is 100% recyclable

These are the main examples of aluminum waste that can be recycled:

  • Beverage cans and tins that have the symbol ‘AL’ or ‘alu’ in printed
  • Spray cans for deodorants, hair spray, whipped cream or other, once the plastic has been removed
  • Kitchen aluminum foil and food wrapping (like chocolate or sweets)
  • Aluminum trays and containers for food
  • Bikes and window frames

Thanks to the aluminium recycling plants, the bauxite extraction (from which it is usually extracted) can be avoided. This way you can save up to 95% of the energy required to produce aluminum, by starting from the raw material.
