Lead Battery Recycling has become an intricate part of waste Battery management for most parts of the world. Battery Recycling by definition is the reuse of materials of Battery that would ordinarily be considered waste. Battery recycling plants require that the batteries be sorted according to chemistries. Some sorting must be done prior to the battery arriving at the recycling plants. Nickel-cadmium, nickel-metal-hydride, lithium-ion and Lead acid are placed in designated boxes at the collection point. Battery recyclers claim that if a steady stream of batteries, sorted by chemistry, were available at no charge, recycling would be profitable. But preparation and transportation add to the cost.
All the elements of batteries are recycled and reused by manufacturing companies, which reduces the impact on the environment. Recycling reclaims a non-renewable resource.

Lead Battery Shredding Plant
The most common raw material at a secondary Lead Recycling/ Smelting Unit is Lead Acid automotive batteries. Gravita is capable of furnishing Battery Shredding or Crushing Machines & equipments.

Batteries are typically unloaded from trailers, conveyors, or from pallets. The Scrap Batteries are fed through the belt conveyer feeder in to the Crushing Section, where it is crushed & broken into pieces. The crushed material is collected in the Tanks. The Plastic/separators are taken out. The Lead bearing material being heavier settles down in the Tank which is further collected which is laid on belt conveyer and is dried. The Dried Lead material is sent to Rotary Furnace raw material storage area and further for smelting.
Lead recycling companies are furnishing from Semi-automatic based Lead Recycling/Smelting to PLC based machines for Lead Separation from the Batteries & further Recycling the obtained Lead.

Lead Concentrate Smelting Plant
Lead Smelting plants recycle the lead ore which is recovered by blasting then dumping, In mining, the ore is extracted by drilling or blasting and then crushed and ground. The ore is then treated using extractive metallurgy. The Froth flotation process separates the Lead and other minerals from the waste rock (tailings) to form a concentrate. The concentrate, which can range from 50% to 60% Lead, is dried and then treated using pyrometallurgy. The concentrate is sintered before being smelted in to produce a 97% Lead concentrate. The Lead is then cooled in stages which cause the lighter impurities (dross) to rise to the surface where they can be removed. The molten Lead bullion is then refined by additional smelting with air being passed over the Lead to form a slag layer containing any remaining impurities and producing 99.9% pure Lead.

Gravita Exim Ltd is the flag-ship company Gravita Group provides Battery Recycling Plant, Lead Scrap Recycling Plant, Scrap Battery Recycling, Lead Battery Smelting Plant and Services for Lead Battery Recycling process.
