Kab – W

Kab W Wire Stripper

If you are looking to strip heavy PVC armored cable and grease wire, the Bronneberg Kab-W wire stripper is the right tool for the job. This heavy duty cable stripper strips the following types and elements of wires: stainless jackets, steel wire armored cable, steel tape armored cable, cables with lead insulators, and thick nylon ridged cables (high voltage cables). Due to the positioning of the deep hardened gripping wheels it is possible to easily clean the machine.

In a single pass, the Kab-W will cut through metal, PVC and other rugged coating materials to expose the valuable copper or aluminum metals within. Recovering these metals from discarded cables has become a simple-to-use and profitable process with the Bronneberg Kab-W.

Kab-W Capability

The Bronneberg Kab-W is capable of splitting cable housed in a variety of materials with diameters ranging from 1.2 “ to 7," including stainless steel jackets. Heavy-duty cables are usually clad in the toughest coatings that were intended to withstand underground soil, water, and extremely variable weather conditions for decades. These cables had been developed for multiple purposes, though many are being replaced by more efficient, light-weight and high-tech materials and methods. While no longer of use, some discarded cable can be recovered to yield the valuable copper, aluminum, and other recyclable materials.

Cables for these purposes may be steel wire or steel tape-armored, PCV-channeled, lead jacketed or insulated, or coated with durable, thick nylon-ridged materials.

Copper Demand

More and more of these durable electrical wires and cables will become available for recycling as wireless and fiber optic capability expands. Underground, pole-to-pole and underwater cables will become less widely employed.

However, because of its versatile properties, copper has many applications. In the past few years, demand for recycled copper rose as raw copper production decreases. And recycling reduces the volume of material destined for the landfill.

How the Kab-W Works

The Kab-W is capable of splitting up to 32 feet of material per minute.

Prior to processing, the raw cable may be pre-cut into manageable sections before feeding into the Kab-W.  The operator will measure the raw cable and make adjustments to the hydraulic positioners to ensure the cutting blade is properly set for the diameter of the cable.

The material is passed into the Kab-W by the operator, then conveyed through the cutting process before being ejected from the other side. Here the coating materials can be easily separated from the metals. The result is clean reusable, high-value copper or aluminum strands, ready for reuse for other purposes.

Mid-Atlantic Waste Systems and Bronneberg Recycling

Mid-Atlantic Waste Systems is a US-based industry leader in providing solutions for a whole range of waste management challenges that include collection, processing and recycling. Since cable and wire recovery can be a money-saving and even profitable endeavor, Mid-Atlantic Waste searched for a strategic partner to provide the ideal mechanical solutions for wire and cable stripping. Copper and aluminum, due to their conductivity, reusability and durability, are valuable commodities when recovered efficiently.

To meet this need, we chose Bronneberg Recycling, a world-wide leader in recycling equipment, as their strategic supplier for equipment that can economically split cable and wire for metal recovery.

Mid-Atlantic Waste Systems is the exclusive US distributor for Bronneberg cable and wire spitting equipment.

Safety and Maintenance 

Considering its sheer power, functionality and capability, the Kab-W requires very little space and upkeep. The equipment is designed for maximum safety and can be easily cleaned and maintained. The Kab-W is also incorporated with a self-cleaning feature that removes much of the residual dust and particles that result from use.
