Eddy current separator, or non-ferrous separator, separate non-magnetic (non-ferrous) metals. The separator purify large bulk streams and/or separate non-ferrous metals for reuse. Eddy current separators have many uses. The separator can handle high capacities, because the conveyor belt separates and carries away non-ferrous metals continuously and fully automatically.

WORKING PRINCIPLES OF Eddy Current Separator

  • Eddy current separators have a conveyor belt system with a high-speed magnetic rotor at the end.

  • The rotation speed of the magnets generates an induction field, creating a rapidly changing magnetic field.

  • The separation is based on the principle that every electrically conductive particle located in an alternating magnetic field is temporarily magnetized.

  • Simply put: for a brief moment all metals that pass the eddy current magnet roller become magnetized themselves, causing them to be ejected.

  • This enables us to separate a huge number of non-ferrous metals and their alloys, including aluminium, copper and brass.
