Bunting Magnetics Co., Newton, Kansas, will unveil its redesigned eddy current separation conveyor at the Institute of Scrap Recycling (ISRI) 2017 Convention & Exposition (ISRI2017) in April. The company describes the redesigned machine as “a well-designed synthesis of technology and functionality,” adding that during development priority was placed on durability, magnetic rotor design and speed to provide optimal separation and easier maintenance.

“Visually, the redesigned eddy current separation conveyor doesn’t look much different than our previous design,” says Don Suderman, product manager, material handling. “But when you peel back its skin and look inside of this advanced sorting machine, it’s very different. At its 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 low-profile design and permanent rare-earth magnetic technology, Bunting Magnetics’ eddy current separation conveyor (ECSC) separates nonferrous conductive metals, such as aluminum and copper, from dry recyclables such as plastic flake, the company says. With magnetic rotor speeds of up to 3,600 rpm during operation, the machine is suitable for separating aluminum cans. Other applications include small particle processing, chopped wire, electronic scrap, material recovery facilities, municipal solid waste, wood, paper, glass, automobiles and rubber process streams.

Additional features of the redesigned ECSC include 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 and double variable frequency drives for adjustable speed. The redesigned Eddy Current Separation Conveyor is available in widths of 24 inches, 36 inches, 48 inches and 60 inches.

“While the redesigned eddy current separation conveyor is an effective solution in nonferrous separation, it also can complete a recycling system for maximum product purity,” Suderman says. “When teamed with our HISC high intensity separation conveyor or SSSC stainless steel separation conveyor for stainless steel separation, magnetic over-the-belt crossbelt separation conveyor, feeder conveyors and vibratory trays, you have a complete solution from Bunting Magnetics that attracts, holds and attracts every metal from the recycling stream.”
