Eriez Magnetics Europe has introduced the Prosort II airless metal recovery system, which is designed for efficient and economical processing of shredded automobile and co-mingled parts.

The system is said to help reduce landfill, re-use metals and save energy.

The Prosort II uses high-sensitivity metal sensors aligned with low-energy electromagnetically driven paddles to separate valuable metals from waste material.

It includes all of the features of the original Eriez Prosort, but with twice as many sensors per paddle.

The Prosort II airless metal recovery system uses a traditional conveyor belt and sensors to detect metals, then instead of using a costly air reject system, it uses a cost-effective electromagnetic motorised paddle reject system.

These paddles are positioned side by side in a bank as wide as the belt, so when the sensors detect metal on the belt, the control panel energises the appropriate paddle and ejects the metal from the product stream.

This system recovers the majority of non-ferrous and stainless steel from the waste stream.

The motorised paddle system of the Prosort II is adjustable to maximise separation efficiency.

It comes in a modular design in units up to 3,250mm wide.

By replacing expensive air compressor plants, valves and airlines with energy-efficient electromagnetic drives, the Prosort II requires less than 25 per cent of electricity needed to operate a comparably sized air-powered sorter.

The Prosort II is used for the recovery of post Eddy current separator residue and maximum recovery of metals.

Eriez said it is ideal end-of-line processing and can be used in conjunction with permanent magnetic drums and Eddy current separators for a complete metal recovery system.
