How to recycle used car oil filters


Recycling Background

With the rapid development of the automobile industry and the increasing number of automobiles, the use of oil filters, as an indispensable part of automobile maintenance, is also climbing year by year. However, traditional oil filters are often treated as garbage after use, which not only causes a waste of resources, but also may cause pollution to the environment. Therefore, it is of great significance to carry out the recycling of automobile oil filters.

Recycling Value

The recycling of automobile oil filters (oil filter element) not only has significant economic value, but also has far-reaching significance for environmental protection and resource reuse. Recycling used oil filters can bring considerable profits to enterprises, and at the same time avoid the environmental pollution caused by these wastes. In addition, the used oil and metal iron in the used oil cartridge are reusable resources, which can be recycled through the recycling process, reducing the need for new resource extraction.

Recycling Process

First, discarded oil filters are collected and transported to the recycling site for initial visual inspection and sorting to ensure that the recovered filters meet the disposal requirements. Subsequently, professional dismantling equipment and tools are used to dismantle the filters into components such as metal housings and paper cartridges, and automated equipment such as robotic arms and conveyor belts are utilized to achieve precise separation. Next, the disassembled components are cleaned and degreased, and the residual oil, dirt and impurities are thoroughly removed through high-pressure water rinsing, chemical cleaning or ultrasonic cleaning.After completing the cleaning, the paper cartridge enters the crusher for crushing and processing for subsequent resource utilization, while the metal shell is compressed to reduce its volume and facilitate storage and transportation. During the crushing and compression process, material testing and sorting are also performed to ensure the purity and quality of the recycled materials. Eventually, the metal shells can be sent to smelters for smelting to make new metal materials, while the crushed paper cartridges can be reused as raw materials for paper production, biomass fuels or other industrial materials.

Processing Advantages

Efficient crushing capacity: the shredder has a strong crushing capacity, which can quickly crush automobile oil filters into smaller particles or fragments, greatly accelerating the processing speed and improving the work efficiency.
Strong adaptability: Since automobile oil filters are usually composed of various materials (such as metal shells, paper filter elements, etc.), the shredder is capable of handling such composite materials and crushing them into materials that are easy to be separated and recycled subsequently.
Simplify the subsequent processing process: The fragments of automotive oil filters crushed by the shredder are uniform in size, which makes it easy for subsequent separation, cleaning and recycling.
Easy to operate: the shredder is equipped with advanced control system, easy to operate, high degree of automation. This reduces the labor intensity of the operator and improves the safety of the work.
