Battery Shredders utilize a low-speed, high torque, dual shaft or quad shaft shredder as the primary shredder before further processing. Li-ion batteries and others contain cobalt, nickel, copper, and assorted precious metals that can be recycled and reused if separated.
Battery Shredders may incorporate a constant water bath for fire prevention and a secondary, chemical-based fire suppression solution. Most batteries need to be discharged before being recycled.
Battery Shredders can benefit from adding conveyors, screens, separation equipment, and washing stations. Physical processes usually include pretreatment and direct recovery of electrode materials. Battery shredders & shredding systems are specifically engineered for your application and battery type.
The Battery Shredding System shown on the right was designed to recycle batteries through inert shredding and separation. This small-scale system shreds spent battery feedstock in a sealed, inert environment to prevent fires or explosions. The battery shredding system then separates and sorts shredded material into output streams.
