An eddy current separator is an useful separation equipment used mainly in the recycling of municipal solid wastes in MRFs or materials recovery facilities. It’s a key piece of machinery for separating aluminum & other non-ferrous metals from process streams.
The basic concept of an eddy current separation is relatively simple. At the core of this equipment is a magnetic (either permanent or electromagnetic) rotor with alternating polarity spinning rapidly within a metallic drum. The alternating magnetic fields created by this process creates “eddy currents” in the non-ferrous metals that pass through. As material stream passes through these eddy currents via a conveyor, the non-ferrous metals are repelled away and collected while other materials fall off the end of the conveyor.
ASG’s eddy current separator is being used in the removal of non-ferrous metals from municipal solid waste, auto shredding operations, glass cullet, electronic waste (WEEE), UBC reclamation, and more.

Place An Order
The general lead time for all single-piece, standard equipment orders is 30 days. For custom orders or complete washing lines, the lead time is between 60 – 90 days. The actual lead time will depend heavily on the complexity of the project as well as the amount of machinery we have in queue at the time of your order.
