Utilized primarily in recycling facilities, eddy current separator belts remove both aluminum and ferrous materials from commingled recyclables. Aluminum is repelled into a chute ahead of the pulley, ferrous material is attracted towards a chute behind the pulley, and all other material falls straight down into a third chute. Polyurethane belts provides greater abrasion and wear resistance and avoids dampening the effect of the eddy current.
- Polyurethane belts provide the greatest strength with the least thickness
- Avoids dampening the effect of the eddy current
- Municipal recycling facility (MRF), municipal solid waste facility (MSW), scrap residue and other applications demanding sorting
