Eddy Current Separator Module for complete metal recovery

Eriez Europe has provided a one-stop custom solution to St. Margarets Metal Recycling and Transfer Centre Ltd. metal recovery problem within their scrapping process. Eriez designed and manufactured a dual-pass Eddy Current Separator (ECS) module that will allow for optimum separation of ferrous and non-ferrous metals.

St. Margarets is a large recycling centre with a metals division, specialising in the buying and selling of scrap metals, including high carbon steel, stainless steel, aluminium, brass, copper, lead and zinc. They approached Eriez with the requirement to separate ferrous and non-ferrous metals from automotive shredder residue (ASR) to increase the purity of their end product and command the highest possible resale value. Eriez recommended a 6 m high module as customized solution, including a vibratory feeder, magnetic drum separator and two 1.5 m wide Eddy Current Separators.

 

The vibratory feeder ensures an even, mono-layer spread of material to maximise efficiency and improve separation before it is fed into the permanent magnetic drum separator. Here the larger pieces of ferrous metals are recovered before the material passes through the conveyors on the Eddy Current Separators separating the valuable non-ferrous metals from the ASR. A dual-pass process where the material passes through a second Eddy Current Separator optimises metal recovery, providing a clean, high-quality end-product.

 

Gareth Meese, Sales Director at Eriez Europe commented: “The ECS module supplied to St. Margarets is one of the largest units we’ve supplied recently. It provides an efficient, economical solution to recycling and waste companies who require maximum levels of ferrous and non-ferrous metal recovery from different waste streams. The recycling industry continues to be a key area of focus for Eriez Europe. Through continuous research and development of our separation technologies, we have added significant value to our customers processing requirements and are pleased to supply St. Margarets with a complete metal recovery solution with our ECS module.”
