Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9959167A1] A process for recycling jelly filled cable places the cable in a receptacle (14). Air is recirculated by a fan (2) through ducting (18) into the receptacle (14) through a false base (19) out of the receptacle (14) through a hood (11) and ducting (16, 3) past a heater and back to the fan (2). On the resulting heating of the cable to a temperature in excess of 115 DEG C, the jelly is absorbed by the polyethylene coating of the cable.
