Eriez to demonstrate non-ferrous fines separation at RWM 2014
Eriez Magnetics Europe Ltd will be present at RWM 2014 on stand 5S142-T143 to demonstrate new developments with their range of eddy current separators (ECS) RevX-E. This advanced equipment allows waste processors to achieve an extremely high level separation of non-ferrous material from waste material fines.
Eriez say that the eddy current separator (ECS) RevX-E achieves significantly greater separation of valuable non-ferrous metals than existing market-leading products and can be applied to a wide variety of mixed waste streams. It allows materials recycling facility (MRF) operators to optimize revenue and profit from fines material waste.
Eriez have developed two rotors for fines separation - the ST2 for materials typically above 25mm in diameter and the ST22 model for particle sizes less than 25mm. The eddy current separator ST22 model combines an ultra-thin carbon-fibre shell, advanced magnet circuitry and specially designed splitter plate. According to Eriez, the Rev-X-E ST22 eddy current separator achieves the highest grade of separation for fines non-ferrous metals in the industry today.
Eriez Europe sales director, Gareth Meese, said: ‘Eriez’s new developments in non-ferrous metal recovery will allow recyclers and waste processors to stop throwing away money to landfill. So far, we have seen customers achieve an aluminium flake reduction of 92% from a single pass or a clean PET flake yield of between 97% and 99%.
‘These superb pieces of equipment go to show what good R&D-based design can achieve.
‘Visitors to RWM 2014 are invited to bring their samples of fine waste materials for testing on our RevX-E eddy current separator. Customers are also welcome to send their samples to our facilities in Caerphilly, South Wales, so that we can run tests and provide them with an expected non-ferrous recovery rate.‘
Eriez will also display their new rare earth overband magnetic separator - the CP RE - which is 60% lighter than conventional models, maintaining the same magnetic separation characteristics of the standard overband magnet.
Another standard piece of Eriez equipment, the Prograde magnetic drum, will also be on the stand. This ferrite drum is a part of the Eriez Prograde range and is available off-the-shelf.
Visitors to RWM 2014 can also see two examples of Eriez’s metal detection range with the EZTEC 9100 metal separation station, which is suitable as a last chance cleaning station, and the MA3500 metal detector, part of Eriez’s Metalarm range used for machinery protection such as granulators and shredders and quality control.
