Answer
1 What is the complete process of Respose e-waste recycling plant?
Respose e-waste recycling plant focusses on recycling metals from PCBs and wires. The plant is based on a dry size reduction technology and a gravity separation process for separating mixmetals and plastic and epoxy powder. The output of the plant in in 3 fractions : Ferrous fraction, Mix metal fraction, Epoxy and Plastic powder.

2 Is this a dry or wet technology?
Respose e-waste recycling plant follows a dry technology.

3 If you use water in your process, how is it a dry process?
The term “wet” technology is used when there are any chemicals involved in the process. Respose does not use any chemicals in the process. Water is used purely as a floatation agent. Water is not “consumed” in the process in any way. Entire water is recycled and reused. Hence, even if we use water, our process is still a dry process.

4 What is the power consumption of the machinery?
Respose Startup plant has a consumption of 60 HP (70.2 KVA). Respose Standard plant has a consumption of 80 HP (93.6 KVA).

5 What is the water consumption?
You need about 3000 litres of industrial water one time. The entire water is recycled. You will only need to top up a few litres that will be lost due to evaporation. Apart from that you will need water for human consumption.

6 How frequently do I need to change the blades of the Cutting mill or the Crushing mill?
It will depend on your total usage of the mills and the type of material that you feed in. Considering that you follow the operating instructions and the machine is run well within its operating limits, the blades can last for about 4 -6 months. This is one important differentiator. Our blades are among the longest lasting in the industry.

7 What is the downtime required for maintenance?
The machine maintenance downtime is not more than 4-6 hours for any standard maintenance procedure such as changing blades, replacing a belt, etc.
Back
8 What kind of maintenance is required?
The machines are designed to have an extremely low maintenance. Regular oiling of the machines, following standard operating procedures as per our operating manual, etc will ensure that the machines require as low maintenance as possible. Usually the maintenance required will be for changing the consumables such as blades, air filters, pulley belts etc.

9 What kind of support can I get for post warranty maintenance?
Post Warranty, you can get all the required spares at a standard cost. On site support if required can also be provided at a cost determined at that point in time.

10 How do I increase the capacity of the plant?
Plant capacity can be increased by adding some machines and by slightly modifying the plant design. Alternatively, a parallel plant can be setup to directly double the capacity. There is also an option of changing the entire plant in a buy back arrangement.

11 Is your machinery certified by the Pollution Control Board?
Pollution Control Board does not “certify”any machinery.
