Eriez Magnetics unveil revolutionary Stainless Steel Separator
Typically, stainless steel has been recovered using expensive sensor sorting technology - until now.
Following more than 25 years of separation success with Eriez’ traditional Rare Earth Roll range, the concept has evolved, making way for the all-new RE Roll Separator. Eriez has supplied hundreds of the high intensity, high gradient, permanent magnet separators to the minerals and ceramics industries for the optimum separation of paramagnetic particles from dry products.
The innovative, new separator enables waste processors to efficiently recover and remove stainless steel from multiple waste streams and post processed materials such as scrap metal and shredded automobiles.
Despite stainless steel being a valuable commodity, it has historically been a difficult material for waste processors to recover, leading to lost profits and expensive damage to downstream process equipment.
Extensive research and development by experienced Eriez engineers has led to the design of the separator, which consists of powerful Rare Earth magnets positioned inside a magnetic head pulley on a 1 metre wide Kevlar® conveyor belt. The specially designed Kevlar® belt provides maximum magnetic field strength on the belt surface, whilst offering excellent wear resistance. As a result, the highest, most intense levels of surface gauss are produced, allowing for effective separation of work hardening stainless steel and other weakly magnetic material that otherwise cannot be efficiently recovered.
Importantly, Eriez offer the RE Roll separator with a 300mm head pulley diameter, producing exceedingly high levels of surface gauss, enabling users to consistently achieve the best levels of separation. Further complementing the high-strength separator, the design features a robust frame structure, adjustable splitter plate, and variable speed controls.
Gareth Meese, Sales Director at Eriez Europe comments: “The new RE Roll separator demonstrates Eriez’ dedication to ongoing product development. Our experienced engineers have developed what could be an important product for the recycling industry as regulations increase and landfill costs continue to rise.”
The RE Roll separator further expands Eriez’ range of equipment for the recycling industry, and, combined with the successful range of ferrous and non-ferrous recovery options, ensures the most comprehensive solutions available for metal recovery.
