Installations prove that Eriez Ultra High-Frequency (UHF) Eddy Current Separators (ECS) recover microfine aluminum, copper and other nonferrous fines from automobile shredder residue, or ASR, that traditional eddy current separators miss, according to the Erie, Pennsylvania-based manufacturer.

“Field results demonstrate this separator’s ability to reliably recover fine nonferrous metals, including bare copper wire, as small as 2-3 millimeters in size,” says Eriez Separation Product Manager Chris Ramsdell. 

According to the company, the Ultra High-Frequency Eddy Current Separator’s design is the key to its performance. “A rotor designed to produce exceptionally high gauss on the belt surface, combined with the high-frequency changes of the permanent magnetic poles, give this ECS the ability to consistently recover smaller nonferrous materials that were commonly missed by previous ECS designs,” Ramsdell says.  

Eriez Ultra High-Frequency Eddy Current Separators offer can help to improve zorba recovery without the need for sensor-based or optical sorting equipment. Each unit ships with an Eriez Brute Force Vibratory Feeder to ensure even presentation of material across the width of the machine to help maximize recovery.  

Eriez patented the first eddy current separator more than five decades ago. Today, the company offers a complete line of eddy current separators for a wide variety of industries and applications. To learn more about Eriez’s line of eddy current separators, click here
