Screens for auto shredder residue

Car Fluff / ASR (Automotive Shredded Residue) Screening

Excellent separation and higher hourly yields

Car fluff is a cohesive material that is difficult to separate. Thanks to DDS (Dynamic Disc Screening) technology, it is possible to optimally separate the secondary raw material, such as aluminum and copper, to be used in new processes, from other materials such as glass, sand, textiles, and foam. In this sector, the Ecostar dynamic disc screen guarantees high productions up to 60 t/H in limited space and enables the variable adjustment of the screening section, proving to be the most efficient and flexible solution on the market.

Car Fluff: what it is and why a good screening process is important

The automotive shredder residue (ASR) derives from the scrapping of automobiles and the term “fluff” indicates the lighter components such as rubber, seals, plastics, textiles and tire fragments mainly from car interiors. The result is a cohesive, compact material often made up of threads, fibers and materials that are difficult to separate. With Ecostar screens, equipped with two or three factions, it is possible to recover non-ferrous materials, such as aluminum and copper, and separate them into ten different screening sections, from 10 to 200mm, depending on the operator’s business needs. The Ecostar dynamic disc screen can work both independently and in line with car and automobiles shredders.

The advantages of Ecostar solutions

The use of Ecostar solutions for the processing of car fluff leads to various advantages: from higher hourly yields to greater efficiency and reliability, together with reduced maintenance and spare parts costs. Furthermore, Ecostar’s technologies for recycling plants prevent the material from clogging the screen’s shafts, thus facilitating the separation and cleaning of the screen itself which results in a considerable reduction in downtime.
