Introduced in 2016, Erie, Pennsylvania-based Eriez says its Ultra-High-Frequency (UHF) Eddy Current Separator is generating significant additional revenue for scrap metal processors by recovering aluminum, copper and other nonferrous fines as small as 2 to 3 millimeters from automobile shredder residue (ASR). The company says its customers are reporting a quick return on investment, with profits increasing by up to $20,000 per month after installing this equipment.
Scrap scrap metal processors such as Illinois-based Scrap Metal Services (SMS) are using Eriez UHF Eddy Current Separators to recover hundreds of thousands of tons of fine nonferrous material annually that was previously missed by their standard units, Eriez says. UHF Eddy Current Separators feature a rotor and design that create ultra-high-frequency changes.
Eriez will showcase the UHF Eddy Current Separator—along with an array of additional metal recovery equipment—at the Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries (ISRI) 2017 Convention & Exposition (ISRI2017) in New Orleans in late April.
Eriez says it is dedicated to advancing the recycling industry through innovation and investment in metal sorting equipment. To further this commitment and develop new technology, Eriez established strategic partnerships with two outside firms. This consortium will be represented at the Eriez Booth No. 2915 at ISRI2017.
