Significant action has been taken to implement closed loop recycling systems in the automotive manufacturing industry. According to their media center1, one vehicle producer recycles enough aluminum to build 360,000 truck bodies a year; the automotive facility recycles as much as 20 million pounds of scrap aluminum material on a monthly basis. Aluminum is a highly recyclable material that provides the lighter weight needed to help meet global standards for better fuel efficiency and a smaller carbon footprint. This is made possible with a pneumatic slurry system incorporating massive vacuums and long lengths of pipework that separate the aluminum from other materials and sort it by alloy grade. The intricate system deals with varying metal scraps traveling long distances in a confined space. The strong military-grade scrap metal is reduced to a smaller size and reshaped into coils later used for new vehicle builds. So, what happens when there is a problem with the system?
