Eddy Current Separators
Eddy current separators are specialized machines used to separate non-ferrous metals from mixed waste and recyclables based on the principles of electromagnetic induction. These machines work by creating eddy currents, which are alternating magnetic fields that are induced within conductive materials in response to a changing magnetic field. The eddy currents generate their own magnetic field, which then produces a repulsive force against the original magnetic field. This repulsion causes the conductive material to be propelled in a direction perpendicular to the magnetic field lines, thereby allowing it to be separated from other non-conductive materials. We at WCPE WCPE have the expertise and the selection to help your company find the ideal solution for your specific needs. We carry products from some of the most respected names in the manufacturing industry and offer customized options and regular promotions to help earn your business.
Eddy current separators typically consist of a conveyor belt system with a rapidly rotating magnetic rotor located underneath it. As the conveyor belt moves, the mixed waste and recyclables are fed onto the top of the belt and passed over the rotating magnetic rotor. The magnetic field generated by the rotor induces eddy currents in any conductive materials present, causing them to be propelled in a direction perpendicular to the magnetic field lines and to fall off the end of the conveyor belt into a separate container.
Eddy current separators are widely used in a variety of industries, including recycling, mining, and mineral processing, to separate non-ferrous metals such as aluminum, copper, and brass from other materials. They are also used to remove non-ferrous metals from incinerator ash and to recover non-ferrous metals from electronic waste and shredded automobile scrap. We at WCPE provide solutions for all of your requirements and aim to provide you with the best quality machines.
