6 mobile metal separators sold in 3 months

Following a surge in orders for their mobile metal separator, Steelweld Enviro Products Ltd and CRJ Services have ordered 6 Bunting Eddy Current Separators and Rare Earth Drum Magnets in the first quarter of 2021. The Eddy Current Separators separate non-ferrous metals from non-metallic material with the Rare Earth Drum Magnets recovering magnetic materials.

Bunting is one of the world’s leading designers and manufacturers of magnetic separators for the recycling and waste industries. The Bunting European manufacturing facilities are in Redditch, just outside Birmingham, and Berkhamsted, both in the United Kingdom.

Steelweld Enviro, from Cookstown in County Tyrone, designs and manufactures a world class range of innovative solutions for the waste recycling sector. CRJ Services hires and sells quality machinery from world-renowned OEMs for recycling companies. In 2017, CRJ identified a need for a mobile metal separation system for sale and rental. CRJ contacted Steelweld, who already manufactured mobile chassis for a number of large OEMs. Steelweld designed the metal separation system with the help of CRJ and Bunting (Drum Magnet and Eddy Current Separator). The resultant mobile metal separation system was named the STROBE and features Bunting’s Eddy Current Separator and Rare Earth Drum Magnet.

CRJ Services presently operates 8 STROBE Mobile Metal Separators in their hire fleet and is the official distributor of Steelweld Enviro’s equipment in both the United Kingdom and Ireland.

The STROBE ECS features crawler tracks and an on-board diesel generator and hydraulic power pack, allowing for easy site manoeuvrability and transportation on a low loader trailer without permits. The unique low feed height of the mobile separator enables a direct feed from a trommel and, with quick set up times and an easy-to-use push button control panel, the innovative design ensures a trouble free, low maintenance service life.

Bunting’s 1.5 m wide Eddy Current Separator handles approximately 25 t/h, depending on the application. The model High-Intensity Concentric (HIC) ECS, with a magnetic rotor diameter of 300 mm, maximises the separation of non-ferrous metals. A high-strength Rare Earth Drum Magnet, mounted prior to the Eddy Current Separators, recovers ferrous metals.

The surge in demand for mobile recycling plant following a challenging 2020 resulted in ordering 6 Eddy Current Separators with Rare Earth Drum Magnets between January and March 2021. 4 of the metal separators have feed widths of 1.5 m, with the remaining 2 a third wider at 2 m.

“Although business in the recycling sector was steady throughout the 2020 pandemic, there has been a real surge in orders and enquiries since the start of 2021,” explained Adrian Coleman, the General Manager of Bunting-Redditch. “We have a long-standing working relationship with Steelweld and CRJ and their STROBE 1500 ECS mobile metal separator has proved particularly popular with recycling companies.”
