Eddy Current Separator For Non-Ferrous Metal & MSW Separation

What is an eddy current separator?

Eddy currents separators are usually used to separate non-ferrous metals like aluminum, brass, copper, lead, etc in a variety of industrial applications. It is used to separate metals based on a high conductivity-to-density ratio. This technology is able to separate and recover non-ferrous metals from municipal as well as industrial waste. At Jaykrishna Magnetics Pvt. Ltd. we are using the strongest and the best quality of magnets to give the desired separation for all the industries.

How does eddy current separator work?

Eddy current separators respond to the problem of separating non-ferrous metals from municipal solid waste and depend on the ability of metals to conduct electrical current. If the magnetic induction in a material change with time, a voltage is generated in that material and the induced voltage produces a current called eddy current.

The Eddy Current assembly consists of a rotor which comprises magnet blocks (generally ferrite ceramic) which are spun at over 2500 rpm (rotations per minute) to produce eddy current. This eddy current reacts with different metals based on the conductivity-to-density ratio, creating a repelling force on the charged particle. Light and a conductive metal, such as aluminum, can easily rise and thus be ejected from the normal flow of the product stream making separation possible.

Eddy current separators have been extremely crucial for the municipal solid waste industry as they are able to separate metals before the waste goes for processing. The eddy current separator is applied to a conveyor belt carrying mixed waste. At the end of the conveyor belt, there is an eddy current rotor. Non-ferrous metals are pushed forward by eddy current pole from the belt into the metal chute, the rest of material simply fall off the belt due to gravity to the second chute.

The Eddy Current Separator consists of the following equipment:

  • Conveyor belt with full control speed up to 2.5 m/s
  • Magnetic rotor with high-energy magnets
  • Frequency converters for control of magnetic rotor and belt speed
  • The emergency braking system of magnetic rotor
  • Cover of separation zone with a splitter
  • Belt bank limit switch
  • Rotation control of belt bank drive
  • Visualization of the status of work: work/breakdown/service/breaking
  • Cleaning brush with geared motor
  • Operating hours counter
  • Control cabinet with full equipment for connect with the main control and visualization system
  • Vibratory feeder with magnetic pulley for ferrous metal separation before eddy current separation
