1. Feed radiators by manual or crane to double shaft shredder

2. Around 5CM length strips after shredder, on conveyor to crushers

3. Magnetic iron removal conveyor for sorting the iron out.

4. Air separator sort the aluminum chips out.

5. Secondary magnetic sorting for removing iron.

6. Gravity vibrating separator for separating the final copper and aluminum.
