Sanko Hamamatsu and Saitama: aluminium recycling in Japan
Sanko is a company specialised in the recycling of non-ferrous metals. At its plants in Hamamatsu and Saitama, Sanko chose Pellenc ST’s X-ray machines to sort non-ferrous metals in two stages. The machines first sort a Zorba stream to create an aluminium fraction and then re-sort it to obtain a secondary aluminium stream pure enough to move on to the melting stage.
