Eddy Current Magnetic Separators

Multotec’s eddy current separators are used in the recycling industry for separating non-ferrous metals such as copper and aluminium, for example, from other conveyed material.

Each non-ferrous metal has its own properties, which will be repelled from the conveyor with varying force; the different types of non-ferrous material can therefore be efficiently separated.

Eddy current benefits

  • Efficient separation of non-ferrous materials enables high quality product
  • Magnetic rotor enables high-speed rotation facilitating efficient separation
  • Alternating current easily repels non-ferrous metals from the conveyor

Eddy current principle 

The eddy current separator separates the material through the use of a magnetic rotor, with alternating polarity, rotating at high speeds. The non-ferrous metal passes over the rotor and the alternating magnetic field creates an eddy current in the non-ferrous metal repelling the particle away from the conveyor, while the other material remains on the conveyor
