EDDY CURRENT SEPARATOR
For non-ferrous metal separation
Our history of creating the highest quality products in the industry has now been extended to the new Bunting® Magnetics’ Eddy Current Separators (ECS). Our ECS products feature an innovative rotor which maximizes gauss intensity on the belt surface and provides superior separation of non-ferrous materials.
Our clean, low profile streamlined design has been crafted by using advanced magnetic finite element design software to optimize the gauss flux density in the working area above the belt. The combination of a powerful rotor and compact design optimizes the eddy current forces, separation efficiency and product throw.
View the video below for a look at our new Eddy Current Separator with the Splitter Box option:
The Bunting® ECS core is designed to provide a high level of gauss intensity to enhance separation on a wide range of nonferrous materials and part sizes. It is protected with the tough urethane belt and a carbon fiber epoxy shell. From aluminum cans to kitchen pots and pans, our ECS units do an excellent job of throw and separation.
Our ECS attains a high recovery rate and provides our customers with cleaner materials, which is the bottom line result everyone is seeking. Also, the eccentric core is designed to be rotated to provide the most effective amount of product throw based on the material and application being used.
One of the key design features of the Bunting® Eddy Current Separator is how easy it is to maintain. Our efficient design includes a drop down side panel which can easily be lowered by one person for quick and easy belt change. In fact, only one tool is required to loosen the belt, drop the side panel, replace the belt, re-track the belt and be back up and running in minutes!
The rubber lagged inverter duty motorized drive pulley at the in-feed provides for exceptional driving force, variable speed drive and a clean out-of-the-way design. It is easy to work on when needed and it provides a variable 100 to 300 fpm belt speed to maximize your separation. The ECS drive comes complete with two variable frequency drives (VFD) to program the ramp up of starting the machine.
Built to Last
The ECS unit has the highest quality urethane endless belt with 1 ½” urethane flexwall and three (3) sweeper cleats to help kick off ferrous contamination. In addition to the flexwall, the ECS has a secondary brush seal outside the flexwall which serves as a double seal of protection to prevent material from getting inside the conveyor frame.
Bunting® ECS units are available in 24”, 36”, 48” and 60” widths and 96” long. The 24” wide may be common in the Glass Recycling industry and the other 3 sizes in Municipal, Plastic, E-Scrap and Metal Recycling Industries depending on the capacity requirement.
Simple. Effective. High Volume Product Control.
Our Splitter Box features adjustable side closures and an adjustable divider vane. This allows you to control the direction of your product flow. There are side extenders on the Splitter Box to widen the range of it. These items can be custom built to accommodate any height requirement.
