80/104 Newell shredder
J&K Salvage’s largest, most productive and costly piece of equipment is the¬†shredder. It produces the prime commodity in the recycling steel market, turning an automobile into fist sized pieces of scrap in less than a minute. White goods such as stoves, washers, dryers, refrigerators and freezers (Freon removed), sheet metal, and other lightweight metal objects are shredded with cars. The shredder processes this material and extracts ferrous (magnetic) metal. In addition, non-ferrous or non-magnetic metals such as copper, aluminum, brass, and zinc are also recovered. Another byproduct of the shredding process is fluff that contains the rubber, upholstery, stuffing, plastics, and other non-recyclable components. This material is routed for further processing by an eddy current machine that extracts the remaining metals. Confidential and security sensitive bulky items from various governments and agencies are also shredded.
