Metal Separation at IERC 2018
Bunting Exhibiting at 17th IERC
IERC or international electronics recycling congress , the first major recycling event of 2018, is being held in Salzburg, Austria between the 17th and 19th of January. For the first time, Bunting Magnetics will have a stand at the event.
During the 3 day congress, experts from around the world will discuss the latest issues facing the recycling world such as the Chinese ban on plastic waste imports and the continued drive towards electric vehicles.
Technology is always high on the agenda as new innovations make it possible to recover and separate an increasing number of valuable metals whilst reducing the amount of unusable waste.
Bunting has developed a wide range of Magnetic Separator technology. Following the acquisition of Master Magnets in January 2017, Bunting is able to provide solutions to separate any metals.
Stainless Steel Separation
Stainless Steel becomes very weakly magnetic when bent or cut (as when passed through a shredder). Bunting developed two new Magnetic Separators, the High Intensity Separation Conveyor (HISC), and the Stainless Steel Separation Conveyor (SSSC). Both systems have ultra high magnetic fields that enable the attraction and deflection of Stainless Steel, enabling separation. Production sized equipment was recently on display the RWM 17 exhibition in the UK.
Non-Ferrous Metal Separation
The Eddy Current Separator remains a vital part of any recycling process, separating and recovering non-ferrous metals. Master Magnets have a number of Eddy Current Separator configurations enabling the separation of large and very small non-ferrous metals. In 2017, Master Magnets manufactured and shipped a record number of Eddy Current Separators. This is as a direct result of companies seeing their equipment’s superior separation capabilities.
General Ferrous Metal Separation
Separating metal at stages is the key to enabling the best recovery and purity of metal. General Magnetic Separators are commonly used earlier in the process to recovery or remove ferrous metals and include:
Bunting Europe’s Managing Director, Simon Ayling, will be at the congress. If you have a specific application, please see us on our stand.
