Ecologic Battery Breaker and separation


The most advanced system to break batteries, separate and recover the components

Presentation:
coming out from the Italian long time experience on the fi eld, we are presenting, our recycling plant for the lead batteries.
The environment safeguard and the materials recycle now is an obligation and a business opportunity.
This thought is a must for all leaving people that want to preserve the nature, increase the life’ quality’ and -why not- save and earn money from waste.
All battery producers and cars disposal have this opportunity. A lot of them, may be also you, are already doing that, and every day more people is asking to enter in this market. Also Governments are pushing and fi nancing the recycling of materials.
If we consider the reduction of mines, the sharply increasing cost for row materials, and the taxation for waste that goes up every day too, we can confi rm: recycle is convenient!!! And we can help on this with our experience, know how and machinery.
It is a simple concept: recycle the most part of the lead, the light plastic and the oxide past of the spent batteries.

This multiple unit is studied to be able to process the batteries in this way:

  • empty the electrolyte, fi lter it and eventually concentrate it
  • crush the batteries in small pieces
  • separate the main components:
  • grids and poles
  • lead paste
  • polypropylene
  • heavy plastic (separators)
The crushing and the separation is done using energy and water.
The water is constantly reused so to reduce consumption. This allows the plant to be placed everywhere

The crushed pieces of batteries are washed to remove all sulphuric acid pollution, so we have:
  • Lead, grids and poles, clean and with purity from 98% to 99%, to be processed or sold
  • Polypropylene washed, to be sold
  • Lead paste from grids, collected and drained (up to 14% w. content) to be sold or processed
  • Heavy plastic (agm and poliethilene separators, wood etc) collected to go to disposal
  • Electrolyte fi ltered can be re-used or sold
MATERIAL BALANCE:
HYPOTHETIC 200 TONS DAY
weight materials %
55,6 - 27,8% grids/poles
72 - 36,0% paste S = 6,5%
11,2 - 5,6% polypropylene
16,4 - 8,2% Separators, PVC, Rubber,
44,8 - 22,4% electrolyte: as 85% water, 15% acid
T200 - 100,0% LEAD BATTERIES

So you can calculate easily the return on investment and the payback time only looking to lead market price*T day produced.
After this fi rst part, complete and ecologically friendly, is possible to set up an unit with some kettles and or a rotary furnace, to process the lead to have bullions and alloys.
This part depends on the factory layout, the quantity of battery to process monthly and the investment capacity.
We can support the customer to tailor the correct dimensions of the breaker, the separation station, the utilities, and the right shape of th rotary furnace with the kettles to produce alloys.
