Eriez, Erie, Pennsylvania, has introduced its Stainless Steel Rare Earth Roll Magnetic Separator, which is designed for wire chopping facilities. The company says the unit gives users a solution for removing stray stainless steel prior to chopping lines. The machine is designed to recover and concentrate stainless steel from the “zurik” conductive fraction from a fines minus-1-inch sensor sorting machine or the waste fraction from a fines minus-1-inch eddy current separator.
With a magnetic field strength in excess of 20,000 gauss on the roll surface, Eriez says its Stainless Steel Rare Earth Roll Magnetic Separator is the strongest permanent magnet available, preventing damage to the blades on wire choppers.
The conveyor is designed on 5-foot centers with a high-strength magnetic head pulley (the rare earth roll) and features a 17 millimeter Kevlar belt to convey material over the rare earth roll. An adjustable splitter assembly provides a split between a weakly magnetic stainless steel fraction and a nonmagnetic material fraction, Eriez says.
The company’s Recycling Equipment Product Manager Chris Ramsdell says, “To avoid damage to the belt, input material must be magnetically treated prior to reaching the Rare Earth Roll Conveyor.”
He adds, “We work closely with all our customers to understand their unique issues. This allows us to design a complete and effective system to remove any ferrous materials with drum magnets and/or magnetic head pulleys prior to processing on the Rare Earth Roll Conveyor. “
Eriez says it will showcase the Stainless Steel Rare Earth Roll Magnetic Separator in addition to other metal recovery equipment at the 2017 Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries (ISRI) Convention & Exposition, April 24-26, in New Orleans.
