How to troubleshoot common problems with a copper wire granulator machine?

Copper wire granulator machine is the essential equipment for recycling copper wires and cables, which is designed to separate copper from plastic insulation, making it easier to reuse the copper. However, like any other machine, it can experience some problems that can affect their performance. In this article, we will discuss the common problems with copper wire granulator and how to troubleshoot them.

A). Machine no working

The first common problems with copper wire granulator is no working. If your copper wire granulator machine is not starting, the first thing you should to check is the power supply. Make sure copper wire granulator machine is properly plugged in and the power outlet is working. If the power supply is working, you can check if the fuse is blown, and you can replace. If the problem still persists, you should check the wiring and connections to ensure that they are properly connected.

B). Low separating rate

Low separating rate is second common problems with copper wire granulator machine. In order to solve this problem, you need to learn about the reason that will affect the separating rate.

1. Blade of crusher

If the blade is damaged, dull or misaligned, it will not be able to crush a large amount of cables and wires properly, resulting in the low separating rate. To get high separating rate, you need to take out the whole blade and cutter shaft, grind or replace the blade one by one.

2. Blowing rate and vibrating frequency of air separator

The blowing rate and vibrating frequency of air separator will also affect the separating rate of copper wire granulator machine. You can adjust the blowing rate and vibrating frequency of the air separator to make the separation rate reach your desired effect.

3. Feeding speed

The another factor that affect the separating rate is feeding speed. If the feeding speed is too fast, the machine may not be able to shred or cut waste cables or wires entirely. While if it is too slow, it will lead to block of copper wire granulator machine. Therefore, it is important to keep feeding evenly.

C). Making unusual noises

Making unusual noises is also one of common problems with copper wire granulator machine. The loose or worn-out parts and belt may be the reason of making noise. You need to check the machine for loose or worn-out and replace them if necessary. As for the belt, you need to make sure that it is properly tensioned.

In addition to the above common problems with copper wire granulator machine and troubleshooting methods, you can also avoid these problems through routine maintenance.

1. Please check if the fixed bolts and V-belts are loose or not. If loose, please fix again before start.

2. Remember add grease to bearings every 3 days, and add gear oil to the reducer about every month(or you could check the oil level through the indicating pipe onside the reducer, if the oil lever lower than the red mark, then add oil).

3. Please notice if there are materials convolved in shredder or not. If yes, please stop the machine, and reverse rotate the shredder to release the materials.
