Concentric eddy current separator Equipment from Solid mixed waste
The Eddy Current Separator (ECS) is an advanced metal sorting unit that is capable of separating non-ferrous metals such as aluminium and copper from dry recyclables.
Eddy Current Separators are mainly used in industries that predominantly involve recycling such as electronics recycling (WEEE), construction, demolition, wood recycling, incineration ash, plastics recycling and Materials Recovery Facilities (MRF's).
Designed to tackle and separate non-ferrous metals such as aluminiu copper, they can effectively be used for most applications that need to eliminate non-ferrous materials from the product flow. Most applications, the ECS is used in line with other separation equipment to ensure a clean recycled product.
How to work:
Eddy Current Separation utilises a magnetic rotor with alternating polarity.
This spins quickly inside a non-conductive drum which in turn is driven by a conveyor belt.
The external drum is effectively used as a head pulley which rotates at belt speed.
The internal rotor rotates at a higher speed than the drum.
This creates a very strong repelling force through the induction of Eddy Currents.
Non-Ferrous metals are thrown from the product flow as they are rejected by the alternating magnetic field.
