New rotor for Eriez RevX-E® eddy current separator offers greatest fines separation
16 July 2013, News release from Eriez Magnetics Europe Limited
Caerphilly, South Wales, UK --Eriez, world leading authority in magnetic separation announces the release a new rotor design for its RevX-E® eddy current separator, Eriez' most recent addition to its extensive line of recycling equipment.
The new design of the eccentric magnetic rotor brings the greatest recovery of valuable non ferrous metals for automobile shredding, glass cullet, plastics, electronic scrap, co-mingled recyclable, wood and incineration ash applications.
Resulting from extensive research and development, the Eriez eccentric rotor design offers the highest performance on the market in terms of material displacement and reliability. Proven by independent third-party testing, it throws aluminium "fines" nearly 20% farther than the leading brand of eccentric eddy current separators. This means a higher recovery of valuable metals that would normally go to landfill and a higher grade metal product for the end user.
The new ECS design features a smaller diameter magnetic rotor offset at the top of a larger outer shell. The strong eddy current then repels the non-ferrous parts (aluminium, copper, brass, zinc) with the maximum efficiency whilst allowing the release of ferrous particles from the belt. This is critical to ensure that the eddy current separator remains reliable.
The change in rotor design and overall improvements in the Eriez RevX-E eddy current separator creates several advantages and benefits such as:
•Rare Earth rotor produces a powerful focused field, allowing greater recovery of nonferrous metal
•Rotor position is adjustable for optimum separation
•Eccentric design reduces long-term wear from ferrous accumulation on the belt
•Compact design requires less space and is easier to install in most plant operations
•Access panels are conveniently located for easy servicing
Eriez manufactures two styles of eccentric ECS, one for fine material typically smaller than 25mm and a second unit designed for more coarse materiel over 25mm up to 150mm. As the selection of eddy current separators depends on so many factors such as product size, percentage of conductive material, product temperature, throughput of the machine, etc. Eriez experienced engineering team work with the recycler to ensure the most efficient is specified for the application.
Eriez Europe will be presenting and demonstrating the RevX-E equipped with the new rotor on its stand 19P19-N18 at the RWM show in Birmingham - September 9-12, 2013. Further information including a video can be found at http://en-gb.eriez.com/Products/Index/Eccentriceddycurrentseparatorrevxe™
