The latest Stainless Steel Separation Conveyor (SSSC) leaving Bunting’s manufacturing facility in Kansas, USA is the largest built so far. The model SSSC 12-24-462 may only be 0.61-metres wide, but sits at the end of an 11.6-metre long conveyor. The high-intensity magnetic separator is destined for installation in an automotive recycling plant in North Carolina.
Customer Focused Design
The Stainless Steel Separation Conveyor (SSSC) features a patented ultra-strong Neodymium magnetic head roll positioned at the end of a conveyor. The intense magnetic strength enables the recovery of weakly magnetic mid-sized fragmented stainless-steel from automotive shredder residue (ASR).
After initial application discussions, the recycler reviewed the installation and concluded that they required a single, longer SSSC rather than the standard 3.7-metre long unit. This would then negate the requirement for an additional inline feed conveyor.

Once in production, the SSSC 12-24-462 will handle between 1-1.6 t/h of mixed automotive shredder residue.

“Extending the SSSC belt from 3.7 to 11.6-metres was not straight forward,” explained Wendell Love, Bunting’s Product Manager for Material Handling Equipment for Recycling. “Our engineering team worked closely with the customer to ensure that the final design perfectly matched their installation requirements. The result is a monster-sized SSSC and another exciting metal recycling project for Bunting.”
