Dings Eddy Current Separators

Dings Eddy Current Separators

Eddy Current Separators are used for aluminum can recycling, electronic scrap processing, auto shredding, and many other applications. They are engineered to withstand severe outdoor environments and the permanent rare earth magnets used in the separator are well-suited to industrial environments.

Eddy Current Separator OperationHow Eddy Current Separators Work

Material is fed onto the conveyor belt of the eddy current separator, which moves it across the rotor where separation occurs. The two streams of material discharge into a housing with a splitter to divide the non-ferrous metal from other materials (paper, plastics, glass, wood, etc.).

Features & Benefits

  • Removable covers that allow access to bearings and belt
  • Integrated splitter with clear inspection doors
  • Full diameter rotor creates larger magnet field
  • Triple layer of ceramic tile, fiberglass shell, and heavy duty stainless steel protect the magnetic roller assembly for longer life and lower maintenance/repair costs
  • Permanent rare earth magnets offer high strength and long life, do not require power, and do not rely on sensitive electronics that require clean, dry surroundings

Eddy Current Separator Models

  • Model 9100: 7″ rotor diameter; 48″ belt width; ideal for material recycling facilities and aluminum can recycling
  • Model 9900: 9″ rotor diameter; 36″ or 60″ belt width; ideal for electron scrap metal processors, aluminum can recycling, and small particle processing/recovery operations
  • Model 9500: 13″ rotor diameter; belt widths up to 96″; ideal for severe duty applications (auto shredding and high volume material recycling facilities
