Eddy current separator is mainly used to recycle copper, aluminum and other non-ferrous metals from industrial waste and solid waste. It is widely used in environmental protection industries, like waste classification, waste electrical and electronic equipments recycle, and the treatment of non-ferrous metal industrial materials. The separation efficiency is good for a wide range of non-ferrous metals, which features strong adaptability, and reliable mechanical structure; strong repulsion (adjustable) and high efficiency in separation.

Eddy current separator is designed according to the principle that conductor can generate induced current in the high-frequency alternating magnetic field. A strong high-frequent magnetic alternating magnetic field generates on the surface of the sorting roller when it works, thus when conductive non-ferrous metals pass through the magnetic field, eddy current will be induced in the body of nonferrous metals. The eddy current itself will generate the opposite direction magnetic field, non-ferrous metals (such as aluminum, copper, etc.) will leap forward along its transport direction by the performance of magnetic field repulsion so as to separate other non-metallic substances and achieve the purpose of sorting. The main distinguishing criterion is material conductivity and density ratio values, a high percentage of the value of the material is more easily to be separated than the low one.

ECS-type eddy current non-ferrous metal separator can be divided into two parts: sorting machine main body and the control cabinet. The main body is composed by of the separation assembly, drive motor, rack and cover parts etc. The separation assembly is the core parts of the separator, it is composed by the magnet roller and material transport systems (including material conveyor belt, belt-driven roller and the gear motor).


  1. Electronic waste disposal (refrigerator dismantling line)
