Strong Eddy Current Separator Increases Yields

Goudsmit Magnetic Systems BV, of Waalre, has supplemented its current line of eccentric Eddy Current separators with a mobile Eddy Current line. This installation is constructed on a trailer and proves its value in the field. The separator is equipped with the most recently developed, super-strong Eddy Current separator type NF1500/38HI and includes the largest internal magnet rotor on the market. Due to this, the magnetic force on the belt surface, the magnetic angle of influence and the magnetic field depth are considerably raised. This results in improved separation yields not only of the fine fractions < 5 mm but also of the medium-sized fractions +5 -50 fractions, in many cases up to 30% more. We refer to this as the following generation Eddy Current separators, appropriate for particles from 0.5 mm.

Attendees from far and wide gathered in the hall to enjoy the Ecoverse party including; drinks, appetizers, live music, and Irish dancers.

“We had people from England, Kiverco from Ireland, Heinz Backers from Germany, the guys from Backhus and Cesaro from Italy. In addition, we had a strong contingent of Doppstadt people there. People that helped us build the business for twelve years now. If you could witness, as we have, the amount of investment Doppstadt put into their factories in Germany, it’s something to behold. Doppstadt has been in business 50 years in June and are having an International Expo. It is as much of a celebration of the future as it is of the 50 years past. There will be 100 machines working. If you knew what it took to get these machines into our hall, you would appreciate how getting 100 machines in there is something else” states Shane Donnelly, Co-owner of Ecoverse.
