Metal Processing - HAMMEL

Supplier: Petromech

The ONE solution - pre-shredding, sorting and separating.


HAMMEL's Pioneering Technology
"The Mobile Metal Recycling Plant" offers significant potential for quality scrap production. Until now, metal shredding was associated with huge investment, high energy costs and high wear and tear on the equipment.

HAMMEL introduces the solution: the "MMS" (Mobile Metal Separator)

The HAMMEL MMS system is comprised of three major components:

  • The legendary VB 950 DK low speed, high torque primary shredder, better known as the "RED GIANT". It comes equipped with a self-propelled crawler track system and the original HAMMEL 2-shaft-system
  • The innovative "Mobile Screen" combines a vibrating finger screen with an electric magnetic drum separator. This arrangement is mounted on a self-propelled crawler track system
  • A non-ferrous metal separator mounted on a roll-off frame

HAMMEL shredders amongst others are regularly used for processing material such as: car bodies; aircrafts; steel drums; cable; light mixed scrap metal; tubing and tin roofing; aluminum extrusions; waste electrical and electronic equipment; sheet metal and stamping waste; white goods; engine blocks; baled aluminum; tires; demilitarization of ammunition and weapons; steel turnings

HAMMEL Metal Separation

  • Processing of a very wide range of materials
  • Downsizing into easily manageable chunks and pieces
  • Excellent separation into Ferrous Metals, Non Ferrous Metals and Waste
  • Fully mobile plant
  • Amazing fuel economy
  • Extendable with picking station for further separation, and hammer mill for
  • further downsizing, etc.
  • Reduced risk of fire (slow spinning mill)
  • Hydraulic drive for jam-free operation and prevention of damage
  • Very low maintenance cost
  • Relatively low investment
  • Also available as stationary plant (diesel or electric powered)
  • Heavy-duty equipment made in Germany

How the HAMMEL Mobile Metal Separator (MMS) Works
First, the input material is shredded with the primary shredder to a particle seize of 12" minus. Then, the fine fraction (<6") is screened out via the vibrating finger screen onto the vibration channel for further separation. The oversize material (>6") is then carried out via the discharge belt to be re-shredded in the primary shredder.

Next, the fine fraction runs through the vibration channel and is carried to the electric magnet drum separator. The magnetic drum separates the ferrous parts from the non-ferrous metals and the waste or fluff. The remaining material mixture travels on to an "Eddy Current Separator" for the separation of the Non-Ferrous Metal and remaining material as rubber, textile, plastics, glass etc.
