Eriez® Eddy Current Metal Separators Offer Superior Separation of Nonferrous Materials

Press Release:
  Jul 27, 2012 — Erie, PA — Eriez® Eddy Current Nonferrous Metal Separators feature improved permanent magnetic circuits with Rare Earth Erium® 3000, which is five times stronger than conventional permanent magnets, for stronger eddy currents and matchless separation of nonferrous materials. A leader in eddy current technology since 1969, Eriez draws upon its expertise in magnetics to develop a more powerful separator than competitive units.

Eriez Eddy Current Separators (ECS) remove nonferrous metallics from plastics, glass cullet, electronic scrap, automobile shredder residue (ASR), boiler bottom ash, spent foundry core sand, municipal solid waste (MSW), co-mingled recyclables, urban wood waste and mixed metals.

In operation, these nonferrous separators utilize permanent Rare Earth magnets to induce eddy currents into nonferrous metals. This produces repelling forces that separate the nonferrous metals from non-metallics, providing a cleaner product for further processing. Removal of nonferrous metals is selective and product loss is minimized.

The Eddy Current Rotor is the heart of the separator. Eriez builds four different rotor designs:
Xtreme Concentric, Rare Earth arched Concentric (REA), LT 2 Eccentric and ST 2 Eccentric, for a multitude of applications. Rotors are available from Eriez as separate items. All Eriez rotors use patented Kevlar/ceramic tile surface shells and grease retainer chambers. They typically are balanced to operate at 3000 RPM.

Eriez offers a variety of Eddy Current Separator models. Type “M” ECS features a streamlined design that is ideal for material recovery facilities (MRF). The “STANDARD” ECS is designed for MSW and ASR applications. The “HEAVY DUTY” ECS, with its HD framework, is perfect for dirty, dusty, gritty applications.
