Eddy Current Separators use a magnetic rotor with alternating polarity, spinning rapidly inside a non-metallic drum that is driven by a conveyor belt.
Eddy Current Separators work by utilizing high-strength magnetic forces to repel and eject non-ferrous metals.
Eddy Current Separators are applied to conveyor belts carrying mixed waste. Eddy current rotors are at the end so that non-ferrous metals caught in the eddy current end up in product bins, while other materials fall off the belt due to gravity.
Non-ferrous metals typically separated by Eddy Current Separators include aluminum, copper, and die-cast metals.
