Smart non-ferrous separator with IoT module
Performance of upgraded Goudsmit eddy current separator visible in real time on dashboard
GOUDSMIT Magnetics have introduced a recently upgraded eddy current non-ferrous separator whereby the control unit can optionally be expanded with an IoT (Internet of Things) module, making the machine suitable for almost any product flow.
The IoT module sends all important data to a dashboard through the Internet, allowing operators to see the performance of the machine graphically and in real time, at a glance.
The internet connection also offers the option of remote assistance. The Goudsmit service team is available online to monitor, resolve any malfunctions and carry out software updates, thus saving a lot of time and increasing the uptime of the eddy current separator.
The connection with Profinet also makes it possible to integrate a non-ferrous separator in a machine line, such that everything works together and the line can be controlled centrally.
Mechanical upgrades have also been made. For instance, the EddyXpert and EddyFines machine lines have been brought closer together to allow the interchangeability of modules.
For companies wanting to expand their systems in the future with, for example, a drum magnetic separator or other separation system, these can easily be replaced or exchanged with another module.
Practical examples have proven the advantages of smart module combinations and show that the eddy current separator can be combined for every product flow and requirement.
For bottom ash recycling, for example, Goudsmit use a 38HI magnetic rotor in combination with a feed belt separator instead of a vibratory chute. This helps to prevent caking of the cement-like mass and results in the best possible separation.
