Eriez® Brochure Features Revolutionary New PokerSort™

Press Release:
  Sep 21, 2012 — Erie, PA — Eriez’ new, full-color PokerSort™ brochure showcases a product that helps the recycling industry with a solution for a common problem--extracting troublesome pokers from shredded material. The brochure is available in both print and PDF format.

Introduced at the Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries (ISRI) 2012 Show, the PokerSort helps to keep problematic long rod-like pieces or “pokers” from damaging downstream equipment in automobile and other metal scrap operations. According to the brochure, PokerSort extracts uncooperative long shapes, including automotive leaf springs, tie rods, steering and axle components, directly from the shred before the drum magnet.

The brochure describes that as pokers exit the shredder, alignment guides on the incline conveyor position poker-type objects parallel in the flow. As pokers reach the end of the conveyor, they extend beyond the conveyor and are magnetically pulled over the PokerSort into a chute and collect in a bin or bunker.

Belt-driven PokerSorts are18-inches in diameter and available in a range of sizes from 36 to 96-inches wide. In most cases, PokerSort can be retrofitted to meet existing ferrous processing set-ups.

“Pokers often poke through conveyor belts, causing jams and bridging conditions that can shut down an entire facility,” says Brian Vrablic, Sales Engineer. “The PokerSort effortlessly extracts pokers, helping to eliminate downtime and protect machinery. It’s a great alternative to unreliable conventional poker removal systems.”
