The Eriez Recycling Test Center , located at the company’s Wager Road plant in Erie, Pennsylvania, is equipped to execute tests on a wide array of materials, including zorba, twitch, zebra, zurik and other mixed shredded metals. Eriez has the resources to handle auto shredder residue (ASR), wire choppings and polyethylene terephthalate (PET) plastic flakes contaminated with aluminum and work-hardened stainless steel.
The testing facility houses cutting-edge recycling equipment, including multiple Eriez eddy current separators, magnetic drum separators, suspended permanent magnets and electrostatic separators, according to Shattuck. “After lab testing, Eriez determines recovery rates which are predicated by the location of equipment in a process flow,” he says. “We follow our products into the field to ensure the successful realization of the predicted results.”
