Aluminum foil Recycling

aluminum foil

【Introduction】

Aluminum foil is made from an aluminum alloy which contains between 92 and 99 percent aluminum. Usually between 0.00017 and 0.0059 inches thick, foil is produced in many widths and strengths for literally hundreds of applications. It is used to manufacture thermal insulation for the construction industry, fin stock for air conditioners, electrical coils for transformers, capacitors for radios and televisions, insulation for storage tanks, decorative products, and containers and packaging.

The popularity of aluminum foil for so many applications is due to several major advantages, one of the foremost being that the raw materials necessary for its manufacture are plentiful. Aluminum foil is inexpensive, durable, non-toxic, and grease-proof. In addition, it resists chemical attack and provides excellent electrical and non-magnetic shielding.

We can see Aluminum foil in many places of common life.It brings convenience to us,at the same time It will produce large amounts of waste Aluminum foil. How can we turn “ waste ” into wealth? The new type of environmental equipment can be used to decomposition and recovery the Aluminum foil and do not pollute the environment.

【Main sources】

The leftover materials of Aluminum foil factories and the classification of waste recycling stations are the main sources of waste Aluminum foil.

【Final products】

By using our Aluminum foil recycling machine,we can get the final products as aluminum powder and PE powder.

【Usages of final products】

1)The usages of Aluminum powders:
①The aluminum powder is the main ingredient of fireworks.So the recycling aluminum powder can be supplied to the firework factories.
②The aluminum powder is the additive of oil paint.By adding the aluminum powders to the paints ,it can present silver. So the recycling aluminum powder can be supplied to the paint factories.
③The aluminum powder always the additive of blowing promotor/foaming agent,etc.
④The aluminum powder can be sent to the aluminum factories,and through smelting the aluminum powder can be made to the high purity aluminum ingots.In these ways we can promote the usage of recycling material and reduce the pollution to the environment.

2)The usages of PE powders:
①Polyethylene has been successfully used for the safe conveyance of potable and waste water, hazardous waste, and compressed gases for many years. Two variants are HDPE (high-density polyethylene) and the more heat resistant PEX (cross-linked polyethylene).PE has been used for pipes since the early 1950s. PE pipes are made by extrusion in a variety of sizes dimensions. PE is lightweight, flexible and easy to weld. Its smooth interior finish ensures good flow characteristics. Continuous development of the material has enhanced its performance, leading to rapidly increasing usage by major water and gas utility companies throughout the world.In the plastic factories,PE powder can be used to make plastic wrap,plastic bags,plastic drum,etc.They bring a lot of conveniences to our daily life.
②The PE powders can be used to product the ACP again.
