At REW, that took place from 08.-11.06.2011 in Turkey, Eriez Magnetics Europe Ltd has showcased their new RevX-ETM eddy current separator (Fig. 1) which is the first eddy current separator from Eriez to have an eccentric magnetic rotor to allow a single point of separation, which is different than the usual concentric design. The RevX-ETM is ideally suited for purifying cullet and plastics, and recovered valuable metal from secondary metals and incineration ash, especially the separation of small particles. The new eccentric ECS will be fully operational at the show and available for testing. Also putting in an appearance at the show will be a self cleaning version of the Model TP suspended permanent magnet (Fig. 2). The Eriez TP magnet is robust, requires minimal maintenance, is very simple to install and operate and is very versatile. The twin pole magnet is designed for the removal of long, thin, sharp metals such as nails, ideal for recycled wood applications.
Along with magnetic separators and metal sorting equipment, Eriez Europe also design and manufacture metal detectors to detect ferrous and non-ferrous metals. The E-Z Tec 9100 (Fig. 3) combines balanced coil technology with a pneumatic reject system, ensuring the rejection of sub-millimetre metal contaminants from free falling material. It is ideally suited for recycled plastics and rubbers. On the Eriez stand, the E-Z Tec 9100 will be on display incorporated into a metal separation unit consisting of an Eriez vibratory feeder which feeds material into a ProGrade magnetic grate in Housing to remove fine ferrous particles and then into the E-Z Tec 9100 to reject the remainder of the metal contaminants.
