In a typical shredding operation, cars are delivered with the wheels off, battery out and they are supposed to remove the gas tank, but I've seen enough explosions to know some don't, the rig is built sturdy enough to handle that. There are big blowers to separate the upholstery/foam, magnets to pick up the ferrous metal (some stainless is ferrous and some is not), but I'm not sure how they separate the plastic, copper, and aluminum because that's done offsite.
Goldfinger used a compactor, not a shredder.

BigV 03-07-2017 10:12 PM

well, it comes out in a stream of chunks/shreds/bits and the ferrous material can easily be sorted out magnetically. That's one stream. The rest, there are other sorting methods, air blowers, by density, etc, etc.

This machine I've been up close and personal with several times. Custom built and flawless.
I haven't seen it with that pickup aboard which has a color I despise. :vomitblu:

Thank you, Gentlemen. All is clear now.

Eddy picks out the non-ferrous metals.
Hit them with an alternating magnetic field and Eddy currents are generated in the metal which in turn generates an opposing magnetic field and they are repelled. They can be just rolling down a conveyor and when they reach the magnet they fly off into a bin at the side.
Not sure if you can then sort Aluminum from Copper with a refinement of this technique.

Ah, thanks beest. :thumb:
Much of the copper salvaged would be wire with a plastic coating, I guess that would be burned off, probably too expensive using chemicals to dissolve the plastic because of the cost of waste disposal.

Gravdigr 03-08-2017 02:01 PM

I believe it is illegal to burn off the plastic/vinyl here in good ol' KY.

I think it had to do with copper theft somehow.

xoxoxoBruce 03-08-2017 09:43 PM

My buddy's father used to burn the insulation off copper wire in a wood stove he had in his garden shed. This was a densely populated middle class neighborhood, and the smoke coming out of the stack was not only scary looking, you could smell it blocks away.

The commercial trash to steam plant that burns all the county trash, burns a shitload of plastic but it's not a problem because they have a tall stack so it all blows over to Jersey. :haha:

Mines are big places with not a lot of people meandering about, stoplights, or cross-traffic, so an interesting starting application for driverless vehicles.

I saw that coming, the mine's closed course is the logical application for autonomous vehicles.

Plowing with Caterpillar tractors. At 4:00 it looks like a homemade wood V-plow.


glatt 03-15-2017 07:12 AM

That same wooden plow just plows right into telephone poles and bounces off them as they shake back and forth. Crazy!

Griff 03-15-2017 07:31 AM

That's pretty rock and roll. I like the human weights keeping the plow down, full employment!

Is that Bianchi green or Tiffany blue?

I can only imagine how many sales Bianchi lost based on color alone.

I likes the wing plows with the chain fall to adjust the height. With cat-tracs the roads may not have been paved outside of town and the plow didn't scrape down to the road surface. When I was a kid they would leave an inch or less then sand it to save wear and tear on the pavement and plow.

It's in the bottom picture of that post, from my family's 2010 vacation to Florida.

xoxoxoBruce 03-24-2017 10:01 PM

Those Allison engines were a dime a dozen in the '50s and '60s, so a lot of speed freaks built cars with them. They were seen in race cars, land speed record car, boats, tractors, and other odd ball applications. The used motors were cheap, but building a car to handle the weight and driveline to hold the torque, was expensive.

BigV 03-26-2017 10:48 PM

I've heard them in hydroplanes on Lake Washington. Holy shit. The name, "Thunderboats" was an understatement. I reckon building a boat to handle that power was in many ways easier than building a car. I imagine cavitation around the prop would be big problem, but spinning the prop? No problem.

The first certified suspended roller coaster in 1902. Ride up the incline then spiral down suspended in the little capsule of death. That way if the ride malfunctions they just bury the capsule without delaying the waiting capsules. :rolleyes:

So, like a rally? The closest to the pin wins? one and a half miles per hour difference separating sixteen vehicles doesn't seem like a lot. But 16,416 ten-thousandths is some truly wide open spaces.

xoxoxoBruce 03-29-2017 11:34 PM

The Nevada Open Road Challenge runs in May, and The Silver State Classic runs in Sept. They are Identical races with the same rules over the same 90 mile stretch of public road. The only thing that's changed much since 1988 (classic), and 1991 (challenge) is the safety standards are much higher. Of course the speeds in unlimited class have gone up, a pubic hair under 210mph, with a high trap of 233 mph, in a Chevy Monte Carlo last year.

xoxoxoBruce 03-30-2017 01:20 AM

I just found that Monte carlo doing 233mph.

Gravdigr 03-30-2017 03:20 PM

I do not think that car was going 233 mph.

I have no personal reference for a speed such as that, but...

Perhaps I can be of assistance.

I recognize that road. It appears to be the same one we traveled during the California road trip. Here are a couple pics from the driver's seat.

I took this pic from the driver's seat, just marveling at the unending stretch of straight, if not perfectly flat highway. That rolls out a LOOOONG way, brother. And this little camera takes nice pics, I always have to resize them down to fit them onto the cellar.

Now, take a look at this one in my editor, I've zoomed in to the "100%" scale, that means, just straight out of the camera, no real zooming. Look at the tiny box in the middle that is represented in the main window. I've outlined the areas, you'll get it.

Look at that stretch of road, willya?
Attachment 59920

Undertoad 03-30-2017 10:09 PM

youtube had this video in the autoplay and in it they claim 240 on a similar highway (in this case closed for the event, i believe)

based on just the reaction of the folks in the video i think it may well be 240.


xoxoxoBruce 03-30-2017 10:57 PM

They have mislabeled it as the Silver State or the wrong month. Probably called it the Silver State when it was actually the Nevada Challenge. The Silver State. same highway, same rules, but in September when it's hotter hence a tad slower. But remember, in all but unlimited class they have a specific mph average they're shooting for over 90 miles. I know from my own travels in the great wide open, I'd drive all day at 80 and after a gas stop end up with a 55 or 60 average. So at times they had to hot foot much faster, like that transit van traveling at 164.


Looked it up, it was the Nevada Challenge in 2012, Jim Peruto, 2006 Dodge Charger, avg 217.5570, high trap 243.7.

Griff 03-31-2017 02:41 PM

I wonder at what speed would I chicken out? Well south of 200mph, I'd assume. I think my top speed ever was like 120mph. I was more concerned with picking up police protection that time... :dunce:

xoxoxoBruce 03-31-2017 05:11 PM

It kind of depends on the scenery, with poles, buildings and trees rushing by it's scary, but where it's open it seems less threatening. None of my vehicles would do over 160 so I don't know where my limit(read lack of judgement) is. :blush:

This is a machine that makes me just shake my head. A Gran Prix race car with a chain drive. Slow lumbering dump trucks, fine, but the 1908 French Gran Prix winner averaged 69.045 mph (111.117 km/h) for 478 miles (770 km)and the fastest lap was over 78 mph (126 km/h). :facepalm:
They also had the first Gran Prix fatality that year.

Sweet ride. She must have been a handful at high speed.

Hopefully, it fails to a freewheel mode, with the brake still functional. And hopefully, part of those hand controls are brakes.

xoxoxoBruce 04-18-2017 07:59 PM

Nope, just two throttles so probably no freewheeling. :haha:
