DIDION Rotary Dross / Slag Metal Reclaimers liberate and reclaim valuable metallics from large slag & dross chunks using a patented design. The machine features a Dynamically Isolated Articulated Concentric Crusher with serrated teeth that provides a positive action for reducing large chunks. The material is first screened in an aggressive attrition chamber through an extra heavy-duty cast alloyed wear-resistant liner which is two inches thick for long life. The material is tumbled again in the Star Chamber and then enters the final screening system where the slag & dross is separated and air classified from the reclaimed metal.

Metal Reclamation & Slag Recycling

The DIDION Rotary Dross / Slag Metal Reclaimers are being used to reclaim metal from dross, slag, salt cake, skimmings, spillage, and pot liner in the following materials:

  • Aluminum
  • Brass
  • Bronze
  • Copper
  • Iron
  • Nickel
  • Steel/Stainless
  • Specialty Alloys

Features & Benefits

  • Patented design crushes, cleans, separates, and screens to reclaim valuable metals from slag, dross, salt cake, skimmings, spillage, and pot liner.
  • Rotary tumble action provides excellent slag & dross reduction and separation for cleaner metallics and a cleaner melt.
  • Positive crushing action with patented crushing roller to break down very hard lumps, yielding higher output.
  • Dynamic Suspension System directs the energy of the crushing roller into the material, not the machine, utilizing an innovative isolation design.
  • Attrition chamber utilizes serrated tooth lifters and high tumbling action, separating the slag & dross to liberate.
  • Automatic recirculation of screen overs provides additional crushing for higher output.
  • Extra Heavy Duty Design for 24/7 continuous operations.
  • Precision laser alignment of main support bearings for minimum wear.
  • Simple one point hookup of ductwork to supplied flanged opening.
  • Automatic discharge of clean metal out the discharge end.
  • Very efficient air wash for maximum dust separation.
  • Very simple foundation requirements for minimal installation cost.
  • Low operating cost with no compressed air or other additional energy sources required.
  • Patented segmented cast wear liners provide lower noise, much better wear resistance, and ease of replacement.
  • Standard drive components with easy access.
  • Variable retention time for various materials to be processed/cleaned.
