Shred1 from Eriez (Erie, PA) uses ballistics to efficiently separate iron-rich ferrous from much of the mixed metals post-drum magnet flow. This separator delivers two distinct fractions: a premium low-copper ferrous product (in the range of 0.16-0.20% cu) and a traditional #2 shred. The Shred1 ballistic separator, combined with a PokerSort to extract long, troublesome pokers, and a P-Rex permanent rare earth magnetic drum improves the entire process. Not only does this new CleanStream process recover more ferrous and concentrate 75% of the post-drum magnet flow into a low-copper premium shred, but it also reduces the hand picking and helps increase recovery of copper bearing materials.
