New design allows for increased rotational speed of eccentric rotors.
Steinert Elektromagnetbau GmbH, based in Cologne, Germany, has improved the fine pole system used on its NES eddy current separator. The company says the improved unit offers improved separation of nonferrous metals even in the size range of less than 3 millimeters.
The company says it has been building its NES eddy current separators with an eccentric pole system since 1987. Over the years this patented design has been continually improved and optimized, the company reports, with more than 3,500 units having been delivered to date.
Steinert says cooperation with customers over the years has helped the company to further develop the fine pole system 6119, which features 19 pairs of poles on its rotors. According to Steinert, it is now possible to increase the rotational speed of the rotors to 3,000 rpm while still retaining their eccentric arrangement.
With the improved version of the Steinert fine pole system, the company says, customers are able to achieve improved separation of nonferrous metals, even in the size range of less than 3 millimeters.
