Xcrusher is a high performance pulsed power technological solution for recycling and valuation of carbon fiber.

A series of electrical pulses of very high power are applied to products and materials immersed beforehand in an ambient liquid medium. The passage of the electric arc and the generation of a mechanical shockwave which propagates over the materials, enable a release of the constituent elements of the products and/or materials by fragmentation, pulverization. Thanks contact-free crushing, Xcrusher can breakdown complex materials in order to recycle their fundamental constituents in an environmentally friendly way. This means there is no usage of chemicals and less energy consumption, thus lowering carbon emissions.
