How to recycle waste tinplate from industrial production


What is tinplate

Tinplate, also known as tin-plated iron, is the common name for tin-plated thin steel sheet, abbreviated as SPTE, which is a cold-rolled, low-carbon thin steel sheet or strip plated on both sides with commercially pure tin. Tin mainly prevents corrosion and rust, combining the strength and formability of steel with the corrosion resistance, solderability and aesthetic appearance of tin in a material that is corrosion-resistant, non-toxic, high-strength and ductile.

The value of recycling scrap tinplate

The recycling of scrap tinplate has significant multiple values. By reusing scrap tinplate, it reduces the need for new resources to be mined, and secondly, this recycling process greatly saves energy, as mechanical recycling consumes less energy than extracting metal from ore, helping to reduce production costs and reduce energy consumption. Recycled scrap tinplate can be reused as raw material for the manufacture of new metal products, providing companies with a stable source of raw materials and greatly reducing production costs.

Process Flow

Scrap tinplate is collected through channels such as recycling stations and factory scrap piles, where it undergoes pre-processing steps such as cleaning, descaling and de-greasing to improve the efficiency and quality of subsequent processing. Subsequently, mechanical crushing equipment is used to break the scrap tinplate into smaller pieces or granules for smelting. Prior to smelting, non-ferromagnetic materials in it are removed by magnetic separation equipment to ensure the quality of the molten iron. After melting and possible refining and alloying, the obtained molten iron is recast into recycled iron products of various shapes and sizes, which can be used to manufacture new metal products or reused as raw materials.


Shredding Machinery Functional Characteristics

High-efficiency crushing mechanism: the scrap metal shredder adopts a high speed, high torque motor and optimized crushing structure, which can quickly and effectively shred tinplate and other scrap metal. Its unique blade design and shear force distribution ensure efficient crushing and refining of scrap metal.

Adaptable: the scrap metal shredder is capable of handling tinplate scrap of various shapes, sizes and thicknesses. Whether it is curly, flat or other shapes of scrap tinplate, the machine can carry out efficient and even crushing treatment.

Adjustable crushing size: the scrap metal shredder is equipped with an adjustable crushing mechanism, which allows the crushing size to be adjusted as needed. This makes the recycled tinplate crushed material can meet different reuse needs, such as casting, smelting and so on.

High degree of automation: the scrap metal shredder adopts a microcomputer control system, which realizes the automatic control of the functions of starting, stopping, reversing and overload protection. This makes the operation of the equipment easier and faster.

Easy maintenance: the structure of the scrap metal shredder is reasonably designed and easy to maintain and repair. The main parts of the equipment are made of wear-resistant and corrosion-resistant materials, ensuring the stability and reliability of the equipment.
