At JDM Aust we only offer what we believe is the best possible technology available, IFE Eddy Current Separators are used worldwide and are considered one of the best in the world today. Please contact us for further information.
IFE Eddy Current Separator
As the need to continually stream line and effectively separate the recyclable materials from our ever growing waste streams Eddy Current Separators have played an integral role in the separation of Non-Ferrous metals from our waste streams such as MSW, C&D, C&I, Green Waste, RDF’ s, Electronic Scrap and Metal recycling just to name a few. IFE Eddy Current Separators are used worldwide for this application and are considered one of the best in the world today as we use only the best magnetic material available. IFE supply a wide range of Eddy Current Separators ranging from production widths of 500mm, 1000mm, 1500mm, 2000mm and the world’s first 2500mm wide production unit.
Benefits of the IFE-eddy current separator
- High separation capacity
- High purity of separated fractions
- Special arrangement of magnetic system
- Use of the best magnetic material
- Compact solution for ferrous and non-ferrous separation
The eddy current effect appears if nonferrous conductors of electricity are exposed to a magnetic alternating field.The eddy currents in turn generate magnetic fields whose flux are opposed to the fields generating them, thus causing repulsive forces which discharge nonferrous metals out of the material flow.
The IFE eddy current metal separator consists of a belt conveyor with two tail pulleys.The driving drum on the feeding side is driven by a geared motor, the belt speed can be electronically adjusted by continuous control. An extremely strong, fast rotating permanent magnetic system is located in the head pulley. The specific geometry of the magnetic system generates a pulse like magnetic field. The number of revolutions of the magnetic field is also continuously adjustable and can thus be adapted to the individual cases. The whole machine is a modular construction on a base frame (feeder, Eddy Current Separator, splitter unit) which can be easily transported and installed. An extensively equipped control makes possible an optimum adaptation to the respective charging material, thus ensuring best separation results.
