Eddy Current Separators

Ideal for material recovery facilities wishing to automate removal of nonferrous metals from trash, MSW, sand, glass, dirt, electronic scrap and shredded automobiles. Available in feed widths of 24, 36, 48 and 60 inches (610, 914, 1220, and 1524 mm). Here is a little more application information about Eriez' Permanent Magnetic Eddy Current Separators:

Eddy Current Separators

Foundry Sand:  Eriez Eddy Current Separators remove non-ferrous metals like aluminum or brass from spent foundry sandmold chunks. This provides a remeltable metal and the sand can be treated and reused or land-filled as non-hazardous waste. Screening Feeders can help size the chunks to improve Eddy performance. Many automotive foundries also use Eriez Eddys.

Glass:  Eriez Eddy Current Separators remove nonferrous metals from recycled glass monitors, fluorescent bulbs and other specialty glass. Magnetic Drums pretreat the glass are prior to the Eddys.

Wood Waste:  Eddy Current Separators are the final step in purifying shredded pallets, wood paneling and lumber before it is ground and mixed with resins to press out medium density fiberboard (MDF). The MDF is used to make inexpensive wooden furniture. Belt, Pulley and Drum Magnets remove the magnetic metals prior to the Eddy.

PET/Plastics:  Special Eriez Eddy Current Separators remove trace amounts of small nonferrous metallics from granulated plastic PET beverage bottles. This allows the flakes to be used to make new products including banding. Eriez Drum, Grate and RE Rolls are also used to pretreat the PET prior to the Eddy.

Boiler Bottom Ash:  Eriez Eddy Current Separators remove nonferrous metals from bottom ash generated by refuse (garbage) fueled co-gen plants. Aluminum used beverage cans (UBCs) that look like nuggets and red metals like faucets/plumbing hardware are typically repelled, as well as coins that can be sold. Drum and Belt Magnets are used ahead of the Eddy to remove the magnetic metals.

E-Scrap:  Eriez Eddy Current Separators remove liberated nonferrous metals from shredded computers and electronic scrap. Some of the precious metals can be concentrated and sold to refiners.
