Introduction to Scrap Metal Crusher Machine

Metal crusher is mainly used to crush tinplate, waste household appliances, car shells, metal scraps, engine shells, waste castings, metal briquettes, pig iron, cast iron, gearboxes, machine cast iron, radiators, raw aluminum, cans, flower boxes, paint buckets, color steel tiles, thin iron sheets, and other lightweight materials.

The crushed materials made by scrap metal hammer crusher equipment are with high density and high purity, and they are with no impurities after being processed by other metal separation equipment (eddy current, magnetic separator, etc.). The crushed materials can be re-smelted into new product, with low energy consumption, high output and good comprehensive economy. The waste metal crushing machine is ideal crushing equipment for foundries and large and medium-sized iron and steel plants.


Metals are valuable materials that can be recycled again and again without degrading their properties. Scrap metal has value, which motivates people to collect it for sale to recycling operations. In addition to a financial incentive, there is also an environmental imperative. The recycling of metals enables us to preserve natural resources while requiring less energy to process than the manufacture of new products using virgin raw materials. 

More importantly, it saves money and allows manufacturing businesses to reduce their production cost. Recycling also creates jobs.

Working Principle of Scrap Metal Crusher for Sale

Driven by a high-speed and high-torque motor, hammers on the rotor of the scrap metal crusher machine crush the scrap metal into the crushing cavity in turns. Under the strong impact, the scrap metal will be torn, hammered and kneaded into clumps scrap. After crushed scrap metal being processed by sorting equipment, we will get scrap metal with high quality and higher purity.


Crushing Process of Metal Crushing Machine

In the scrap metal crusher machine or metal recycling machine, there are a set of discs fixed on the main shaft and hammers assembled between the discs, that can swing freely. Driven by kinetic energy generated by high-speed rotation, the hammers crush, tear, and rub the scrap metal into lumps and balls, and crushed materials will pass through the screen at the bottom or top to drop on the vibrating feeder. The crushed scrap metal with larger size will be crushed again by the rotating rotor discs and hammers in the hammer metal crusher until they can pass through the screen.


Advantages of Scrap Metal Crusher Machine

1. Simple structure, stable running, low noise, less dust, large crushing ratio, uniform crushed sizes.

2. Metal crushing machine has advantages of electric forced feeding and combined crushing hammers with throwing hammer and ring hammer, which increases the efficiency of 5%-15% compared with ordinary scrap metal crushers.

3. PLC control system and hydraulic power system help the intelligent crushing work, which saves time and effort, and the operation of the metal recycling equipment is clear at a screen.

4. The scrap metal crushing machine is with safe and reliable lubrication system, convenient parts replacement and simple equipment maintenance.

5. The body of our large metal crusher is made of extra-thick steel plate and diagonal braces, and liner and hammers are processed by heat treatment to naturally eliminate stress, with more stable chemical composition, so service life of our scrap metal crusher for sale is increased by more than 30%.

6. The scrap metal crusher machine is designed with a safety gate. If unbreakable material enters into the crushing chamber, the operator can open the safety gate and discharge it out of the machine to avoid damage to the scrap metal crusher.

In addition, we are manufacturer, if you need to sort non-ferrous metals such as copper and aluminum, non-ferrous metal eddy current sorting machine can be equipped; if wind sorting is required, a winnowing system can be installed; and if dust removal is required, a dust removal system can be installed.
