How to recycle used copper and aluminum radiators?

With the rapid development of the electronics industry, a large number of copper-aluminized heat sinks that have ended their service life have formed waste resources, which contain valuable copper and aluminum materials. Efficient recycling of copper and aluminum within these radiators is critical for resource conservation and environmental protection. In this regard, we introduce some of the main equipment and technologies that enable efficient recycling of radiators.

Radiator recycling

First, for preliminary crushing, we use a mechanical crusher with adjustable crushing strength. This equipment can break the radiator into block or flake debris with a size of 20-50mm, thereby achieving preliminary separation.

Next, we used magnetic separation technology. Using a magnetic separator with a strong DC magnetic field, we can separate the iron materials in the radiator, leaving only precious copper and aluminum.

The third step is air flow separation. We use the difference in mass density of aluminum and copper to perform fine separation with the help of an air flow separator. Through this method, we can obtain pure copper and aluminum materials, laying the foundation for subsequent recycling.

Finally, we use electrolytic extraction technology. We collect the high-purity aluminum slag and copper slag that have been finely separated in the previous steps and send them into the electrolytic cell. In a high-current electrolysis process, aluminum and copper can be extracted with a purity of up to 99.9% using aluminum and copper as cathodes.

Products Scrap Metal Recycling Equipment

Copper And Aluminum Radiator Recycling Production Line


With the increase in vehicle scrapping and indoor air conditioning replacement, a large number of discarded copper and aluminum radiators are produced. Since discarded radiators contain a large amount of valuable non-ferrous metals, the number of customers who specialize in the recycling of air conditioning radiators is also increasing. However, with the rapid development of the economy, labor costs have increased significantly. The traditional recycling method of air conditioning radiators is no longer applicable, and has been replaced by advanced air conditioning radiator crushing and separator equipment.

Copper and aluminum radiator scrap



Work process

The copper and aluminum radiator separator adopts mechanical crushing processing. It is a batch processing equipment. First, the air conditioning radiator is transported to the crusher for processing through the feeding conveyor. Subsequently, copper and aluminum are completely separated by sorting equipment using the principle of different specific gravity. In this way, the output of the entire production line is relatively high.

The scrap copper and aluminum radiator recycling production line adopts the method of physical crushing, sorting and recycling. First, the materials are coarsely crushed by the primary crusher, and then crushed by the secondary crusher to crush them into materials of about 3 cm in size. Subsequently, iron impurities are removed through magnetic separation, and then air separation is performed. The result is pure iron, copper and aluminum that can be recycled and reused.
