Eddy current separators include new hood design

July 6, 2020
Eriez's upgraded separators come in two models to handle fine or coarse materials.

This story appeared in the Summer 2020 edition of  Plastics Recycling magazine.

RevX-E MK3 Eriez’s eddy current separator can remove metals from a waste stream. Units are available in widths of about 3.3 feet, 3.9 feet and 4.9 feet. The separators can be configured with a heavy-duty vibratory feeder, feeder support framework, separation shroud/splitter and controls for turnkey installation.

What’s new? Upgrades to two models last year — the ST22 for handling fine materials and the LT2 for coarse materials. The ST22 is appropriate for removing metals from shredded plastics and polyethylene terephthalate (PET) flake. The second upgraded model, the LT2, offers a deep, high-powered eddy current field that allows for the removal of large metal objects, such as crushed aluminum cans, from a PET bottle stream. Both models feature a new hood with an adjustable splitter that allows operators to specify the size of materials the machines should handle.

Benefits The ability to recover high-value metals and improve the purity of plastic scrap.
