ZAS Harvester

The latest innovation to efficiently sort scrap ACSR conductors

The ZECK Al/Steel Separator (ZAS) is positioned between the puller-tensioner and a reel winder/drum stand during the stringing operation, or between two reel winders/drum stands on-site at the scrap dealer. 

The conductor passes through the ZAS, the aluminum layers are removed and cut into aluminum pieces of 30–70 mm and then disposed to the side into big bags or containers via a conveyor belt. 

The undamaged steel core is wound onto the reel winder/drum stand. This way, pure materials can be separated during the stringing operation! The max. rope speed is 6.4 km/h.

We deliver a customized diesel generator set for the energy supply.
