Eriez (Erie, PA) has released the Eddy Current Nonferrous Metal Separators, which feature improved permanent magnetic circuits with Rare Earth Erium 3000. The company claims these circuits are five times stronger than conventional permanent magnets for the separation of nonferrous materials. The separators can remove metallics from plastics, glass cullet, electronic scrap, automobile shredder residue (ASR), spent foundry core sand and mixed metals, among others. Eriez builds four different rotor designs — Xtreme Concentric, Rare Earth arched Concentric (REA), LT 2 Eccentric and ST 2 Eccentric — for a variety of applications. All use patented Kevlar/ceramic tile surface shells and grease retainer chambers, and are balanced to operate at 3,000 RPM. The company also offers a variety of models, including the "HEAVY DUTY" ECS, which is ideal for dirty applications.
