Eriez Rewrote the Book on Turning Scrap into Cash

Press Release:
  Dec 28, 2010 — Erie, Pa. — Eriez® announces the release of Turning Scrap into Cash, a new, free book that introduces P-REX, the company’s revolutionary Permanent Rare Earth Xtreme® Scrap Drum. Turning Scrap into Cash describes how P-REX eliminates the weaknesses of electro drums to provide more efficient separation and more recovery, which results in more profits for scrap recycling operations.

The 14-page book explains that P-REX offers superior edge-to-edge separation, no ‘transfer point’ drop in magnetic force and no decline in performance due to heat rise. These revolutionary features are highlighted throughout the book.

“Prior to the introduction of P-REX, processors had no option but to accept reduced revenue due to more limited metal recovery—but no longer,” says Tim Shuttleworth, Eriez President and CEO. “For processors who are ready to achieve maximum profitability, ordering this book is a must.”

Turning Scrap into Cash explains when drum magnets don’t operate at peak performance, large sphere-shaped meatballs and knuckles become impossible to capture. Fragments of electric motors and alternators and other items containing copper, aluminum and steel are missed, money is lost and dangerous fluff fires often result.

According to the book, P-REX’s powerful permanent magnetic circuit, designed using sophisticated modeling techniques, is up to 40 percent stronger than an electro drum and is capable of moving large spherical objects at twice the distance! “P-REX is able to reach into the shredded material and remove even difficult meatballs,” says Shuttleworth.

Turning Scrap into Cash also showcases other innovative Eriez products for recycling, including the ProSort and ProSort II Airless Metal Recovery System, RevX-E™ Eccentric Eddy Current Separator, DensitySort Air Table, TotalSort™ Metal Recovery System and FinesSort™ Metal Recovery System. The book also includes a DVD that shows P-REX, RevX-E and ProSort II at work.
