Kuusakoski unveils recycling technology for separating copper and niobium-titanium from superconducting wires

Arsi Saukkola, who is responsible for R&D in Kuusakoski’s precious metals department, presents an innovation in recycling.

Kuusakoski Recycling, Northern Europe's leading recycling services company, has developed a method of recycling magnetic imaging devices that can be used to separate electrolytic copper and niobium-titanium conductors, which are thinner than a human hair. The company says the innovation is particularly useful currently, because the use of magnetic imaging in health care is increasing, and hospitals are replacing their old devices with newer, more powerful imaging devices. Magnetic imaging requires an extremely strong magnetic field. For that reason, in the core of the imaging device there is a superconducting coil that is cooled with helium. This coil is sealed inside multi-layered metal chambers and cast in resin.
