Sweed Sifter – Systems For Copper Recycling

Sweed is proud to have served the recycling and wood products industries for 60 years. If you want the latest technology, quality craftsmanship, unmatched customer service and excellent after-sale support… Sweed Machinery is the answer!

The Sweed Sifter is an optional component added to the last stage of processing on Sweed’s Separation Systems. It allows for additional recovery of the copper and aluminum midlands and fines that become trapped in the wire and cable plastic waste during separation.

Depending on the type of material being processed, this vibrating sifter provides an increase of copper recovery ranging from .2% – 3% of input weight, (recovering up to 40 lbs of copper per hour); providing maximum efficiency for your system.

The Sweed Sifter can be installed on any existing Sweed Separation System, or on to another system brand in order to achieve the highest recovery rate possible.



Sweed’s recycling equipment can manage all types of wire and cable scrap, including: ferrous and non-ferrous wire, ACSR, communication wire, utility cables, power cables, copper wire, electrical multi-strand wire, romex, #1, #2 and #3 wire! Sweed systems are designed and manufactured in the United States, and offer unsurpassed technical assistance and after-sale support.

With the high price of clean recyclable conductive metals, no matter what your output requirements are, Sweed’s wire and cable recycling equipment has tremendous potential for quick paybacks and outstanding long-term profits!
