Use of container shears in PVC recycling
November 2017: In the recycling plant of a well-known German PVC profile manufacturer, a rental shear was tested in the summer of 2017 for the pre-shredding of complete window frames with glass and fittings. By using this container shear, the throughput of the subsequent mechanical treatment could be significantly increased and the very abrasive glass fraction could be separated from the sheared material flow with a simple sieve. The customer has already decided after a short time to purchase a CNS400Ke electric powered container schear, which was integrated into the overall system in November 2017. In the meantime, container shears are also being used in another PVC recycling plant in the Ruhr area.
