Eventually every electric motor outlives its usefulness and needs to be replaced by a newer, more up-to-date model with more functions.
Recycling the valuable components of those discarded electric motors is economically feasible using the Bronneberg Electric Motor Dismantler from Mid-Atlantic Waste Systems in Washington, DC. Typically, valuable copper and aluminum components are shrouded in tough cast iron or hard aluminum outer casings that, at first glance, seem impenetrable. With the electric motor dismantler’s three-step process, the re-useable components can be rescued from the casings and internal structure to yield these highly valuable components.
Workings of the Electric Motor Dismantler
Certified in the European Zone (CE Certified), the Bronneberg motor dismantler is capable of disassembling even the toughest motors and separating any and all valuable components.
The machine, with accessories specific to many processes, is 400V-5.5 kW-powered.
The dimensions of this system are 59 inches wide by 33.5 inches deep by 98.4 inches high.
The equipment weighs approximately 3300 pounds (1400 kg). Designed to be moved around cities like Washington easily, the motor dismantler can be pulled out when needed and stowed while idle.
Motor Dismantling Process
In preparation for the mechanical dismantling of the electric motor, outer pieces and attachments that can be removed should be unscrewed and put aside. This should reveal the actual external housing of the electric motor.
The Bronneberg industrial electric motor dismantler from Mid-Atlantic Waste Systems in Washington, DC employs a three-stage process to harvest the valuable material within.
Stage one: The operator initiates the separation and removal of the outer casing to expose the elements of the electric motor. With extreme high pressure exerted by the splitting apparatus, the cast iron or aluminum housing is cut on opposing sides to separate and peeled away to expose the inner workings. The anchor/rotor is then removed.
Stage two: The second stage is the cleaving of the stator or transformer block into two equal pieces. By opening these up, copper coils are now exposed and ready for separation from the remaining parts and materials.
Stage three: The third stage of the process involves pulling the copper wiring away from the surrounding metal through which it had been threaded by means of a complex hydraulic system. The housing is literally pulled away, leaving the copper wiring fully exposed and unattached.
The result: a volume of valuable copper wiring cleanly separated from a pile of scrap metal and plastic that may also be recycled.
