Bunting Magnetics Co. (Newton, KS) has recently unveiled its redesigned Eddy Current Separation Conveyor. During the development work on this next generation machine, high priority was placed on durability, magnetic rotor design and speed to provide optimal separation and easier maintenance. According to the company, at the heart is its redesigned large diameter rotor that delivers stronger eddy current magnetic fields, with higher gauss. Plus, the stiffer design allows higher speeds for efficient separation even in finer particle flows. With a clean, low-profile design and permanent rare-earth magnetic technology, Bunting Magnetics’ Eddy Current Separation Conveyor (ECSC) effectively separates non-ferrous conductive metals such as aluminum and copper from dry recyclables such as PET and plastic flake. Additional key features include:
- Tough urethane belts for longer wear.
- Belt guide rails for better belt tracking.
- Corrugated belt sidewalls for material containment.
- Cantilever frame design for belt replacement in minutes.
- Standard take-ups for easier belt adjustment.
- Double variable frequency drives for adjustable speed.
With magnetic rotor speeds of up to 3,600 rpm during operation, the machine is the ideal solution to separate aluminum cans making it invaluable in the historically high volume aluminum recycling market. Other applications include small particle processing, chopped wire, electronic scrap, MRF, MSW, wood, paper, glass, automobiles, and rubber process streams.
