Plastic & Glass Recycling

In plastic recycling, metal contamination can damage shredders and grinders.  Smaller metal contamination can block injection nozzles, or cause defects in molded or extruded parts.  In glass recycling, metal contamination in the melted glass causes process problems in the furnace.  Gathering data like the frequency of tramp metal contamination (number of pcs per day/week/month) the type of metal, and the shape of metal can all help to define the problem, and are very useful in choosing the right solution.
