Range of services

In recent years, the shock wave fragmentation process has been further developed. From the laboratory process to industrial scale. The aim of ImpulsTec is to perfect this technology and to operate successfully on the market. In addition to the construction and sales of shock wave systems for material fragmentation and recycling, the high-tech company also offers its customers a range of services related to the systems, such as process development for selected customer materials or the contract fragmentation of larger batches of material for a feasibility study.
The range of services offered by ImpulsTec spans the entire manufacturing process for shock wave fragmentation systems. From development and project planning through control design and realization , as well as on-site system construction and commissioning for customers. For further scaling of the technology and the design of customer-specific solutions, a network of competent national and international partners from a wide range of specialist areas can be used. By working with various research institutes and participating in privately and publicly funded research projects, ImpulsTec is able to offer the best solution for all customer needs.

Material-specific special applications

Furthermore, ImpulsTec has developed and implemented many material-specific special applications in recent years, such as:
  • fragmentation vessels for efficient separation of ceramic-metal composites
  • continuous vessels for treatment of silicon and battery materials
  • continuous vessels for fragmentation of high-purity materials
  • application for recycling of carbon-fibre composites
  • continuous recycling process for solar modules
  • continuous recycling process for galvanized plastics
  • fragmentation vessel for continuous treatment of metal slags and rocks

Technical features

The shock wave laboratory systems work as standard with a movable single or multi-electrode system. This makes it possible to adjust the electrode spacing in the fragmentation process individually.

During operation, you can choose between working voltages between 30 and 50 kV and a pulse rate between 1 and 50 pulses per second. The pulse energy is adapted to the respective material requirements and thus allows a high flexibility of the stress intensity.

The systems are equipped with enclosure for noise protection and shielding against electromagnetic interference (EMC protection). A monitored, multi-level security system ensures personal and system protection at all times.

Machine area with automatic clamping and lifting system

The fragmentation vessel can be automatically picked up from the trolley with a lifting system and transferred to the vessel cover.
The exact positioning is continuously monitored by special sensors from the system control. Exact positioning is ensured and monitored by the system control with special sensors. A clamping device then presses the fragmentation vessel onto the cover and securely clamps it in the operating position. This automatic lifting and clamping device reduces manual work during operation to a minimum.

Plant control with integrated process control and monitoring

An industrial control system (PLC) with touch-screen interface enables the individual setting of the fragmentation parameters depending on the material or separation requirements and the simple adjustment of the process parameters. No specialist qualifications of the operating personnel are required.
The operator can independently store data records with fragmentation parameters for specific materials in the system control.

Vessel designs

The shock wave systems for batch operation can be operated with fragmentation vessels of various designs.
By adapting the fragmentation chamber, the shock wave process can be individually adapted to the specific material and separation requirements.

Continuous plants (industry)

Technical features

The continuous shock wave systems are implemented as standard in a container construction. The continuously operating fragmentation vessel is arranged inside the container. This is equipped with a conveyor system for the material feed and a conveyor system for the removal of the treated material. The container is equipped with a special lining for noise protection and for shielding against electromagnetic interference (EMC protection).

Material input

The material is fed in by means of a bunker conveyor, which continuously feeds the material to the fragmentation vessel inside the container. Appropriate dimensioning of the material bunker means that the system can be operated independently.

Continuous fragmentation vessel

The fragmentation vessels of the continuous shock wave systems are designed according to the specific material and separation requirements. The process can be individually adjusted by adapting the fragmentation chamber. The vessel is equipped with a movable multi-electrode system. The number of working electrodes is determined by the required productivity.

Material output

The fragmented or disassembled material is usually transported out of the fragmentation vessels by means of a water bath conveyor and thus represents a simple interface for linking with downstream plant technology for sorting and dewatering.
