Eddy current separators (ECS) are used in the recycling industry for recovering non-ferrous metals. By means of rotating, high-energy neodymium magnet systems, they generate fast-alternating magnetic fields with high intensity. As a result, non-ferrous metals such as copper and aluminium are flung out of the bulk solids flow.
Highly modern drive and bearing technology makes it possible to achieve previously unattained rotor speeds. Sophisticated balancing techniques are critical for rotor systems with minimal resonance and vibrations. A concentric rotor design ensures that the magnetic field has the maximum depth effect and volume expansion over the conveyor belt. In addition, the belt is made of extremely thin and wearresistant polyurethane.
