Application: Used to separate turnings, millings and swarf, and mixtures of ferrous and non-ferrous metals such as aluminium, brass etc.
Process: The turnings and swarf are transported over a magnetic bed on a feed belt. The iron is magnetised and remains on the belt until ejected into a collection hopper. Non-ferrous fragments fall down directly into a separate hopper.
Unique features: A highly sophisticated magnetic pattern sets the swarf and millings in motion, so that they twist, turn and disengage from one another before separation into ferrous and non-ferrous fractions. Metals filings of this kind have a tendency to become entangled, and separation has previously been almost impossible. Now the elme swarf separator has a proven ability to yield a separated product that is 99% free from iron.
