Installation to recover post-shredding light fraction


We have recently successfully installed a new complete turnkey installation at our client's plant. As can be seen in the image, it is a large-scale and robust Cometel unit, which provides our client with multiple advantages.

This project has two metal tile conveyors, two trommel drums of 18m each, thirty-seven rubber belt conveyors, magnetic separators, cyclones and Eddy Current separators. This installation's main goal is to achieve an economic benefit from waste that until then had been destined for landfill and is now recyclable.

Eddy Current Magnetic Separator

This equipment uses a powerful magnetic field to separate non-ferrous metals (aluminium, brass, copper) from an input waste or other materials.

The use of permanent rare magnets in the non-ferrous separator's operation creates eddy currents in metallic particles. Repelling forces are created as a result, resulting in a cleaner product for processing. Metallics are selectively removed, minimizing product loss.

Magnetic separators: How do they work?

- Ferromagnetic metals are attracted and stick to the Eddy Current drum, and are then separated from the drum at the rear of the drum and are stored in a container.

- Non-ferromagnetic metals suffer a rebound effect and jump past the drum into another container.

- In everything else that is not metal it does not influence at all and falls naturally.
