Eddy Current Separator – How To Effectively Separate Non-Ferrous Metals?


The metal industry plays an integral role in modern society and the Indian economy as it meets the requirements of a wide range of industries including engineering, electrical and electronics, infrastructure, automobile and automobile components, packaging, etc.

Two major types of metals comprise ferrous metals and non-ferrous metals. Ferrous metals consist of iron and different types of steel, whereas non-ferrous metals include aluminum, copper, zinc, lead, nickel, and tin.

In 2022 alone, the production of steel is estimated to increase by 18% and reach 120 million tonnes. The production stood at 92.82 million tonnes and consumption at 86.3 million tonnes till January 2022.

Likewise, Aluminum consumption is estimated to reach 16.49 million tonnes following the production of aluminum of around 16.19 million tonnes in 2022 all around the world.

Unfortunately, the mining and processing of such metals can have massive environmental impacts if not handled appropriately. Thus developing and integrating new recycling technology becomes necessary.

Around the world, recycling plants rely on Eddy Current Separator to separate and recover various types of conductive non-ferrous metals. With high strength magnetic force, Jaykrishna Magnetics Pvt. Ltd.’s eddy current separator makes it much easier and more effective to repel and eject non-ferrous metals from the product.

What Is An Eddy Current Separator?

Eddy current separator is a machine used to either recover or remove non-ferrous metals from non-metallic materials.


High magnetic force is used for the separation of non-ferrous metals. Jaykrishna Magnetics Pvt. Ltd. has made available different types of eddy current separators to enable effective separation for both small up to 3mm to large non-ferrous metals.

How Does The Eddy Current Separator Work?

Eddy current separator is used to remove nonferrous metals such as aluminum, die-cast metal, and copper from nonmetallic material.

The mix of these non-metallic materials is fed via a conveyor or feeder onto the conveyor belt of the separator, which moves it across the magnetic rotor where separation occurs.

A magnetic rotor is a series of permanent rare earth magnets mounted on a clearance plate attached to a shaft that supports the conveyor belts for the process.

Eddy Current Separators Are Used In?

Eddy Current Separator is suitable for separation between substances like high conductivity and low density or low conductivity and high density and non-conductive substances and conductive.

The industrial application of eddy current separator is :

  • Non-ferrous metals separation from municipal and industrial solid waste
  • Metal separation from PET
  • Recycling of glass cullet
  • Wood waste processing
  • Metal recovery in car and household recycling
  • Non-ferrous chip separation
  • Plastics and rubber separation

Advantages Of Eddy Current Separator

  • High efficiency of metal separation from 1 mm
  • Easy installation and maintenance
  • Easy to operate and low energy consumption
  • Solid structure with anti-vibration pads
  • Designed with the best safety system
  • High yields of non-ferrous metals recovery
  • Negligible loss of valuable material
