That's the worst case of an oil filter implosion I've ever seen! Just kidding ! How does that crushed filter compare to other's you've crushed as far as it's "crush ability" or do they all mainly crush basically the same.
How many you think 1 guy could recycle in an 8 hr day?
The way I got the operation pictured in my mind, one guy could disassemble hundreds in a 8 hour shift.
Maybe if you employed 100 guys you might keep up.
I think this is the point. We could come up with dozens of ideas on how to separate the recyclable bits from the non-recyclable bits. There's just no money in doing so at the moment. It's cheaper to off-gas and throw out any solid waste.
I watched the video. I don't like the way they shred the filters into a bunch of pieces. My method would leave all the filter parts completely intact except for the two halves of the can. The employees would then disassemble the filters over top of a screen; that way all the waste oil gets collected from the filters without getting pieces of filters in the waste oil.
Gang: OFR (Oil Filter Recyclers) wants ya to crush the filters. When I started here 10 years ago we crushed the filters and our scrap guys took them. Only ones we can’t crush are cartridge types as they rebound to their original size.
I may start scrapping them if company uses scrap guy as he will take them for free
C'mon BITOGers. They shred cars in big allutrifiers. Cars are sent in and the shreds are blown up a tower by air pressure.
That's the definition of allutrification. Check my spelling.
There are windows in the tower where metals of different weights exit. The seat foam is the only stuff that makes it to the top of the tower.
Simply build a dedicated oil filter tower.
