Shred1 Ballistic Separator generates improved profits through better recovery
According to Eriez, by incorporating the company’s Shred1 Ballistic Separator into their operations, scrap processors can increase their profits with the ability to supply a very high-grade ferrous product to steel mills. This state-of-the-art unit is engineered to efficiently separate iron-rich ferrous from much of the mixed metals and waste material in a post-drum magnet flow, and automatically produces a premium low-copper shred.
Shred1 uses the power of ballistics to deliver two distinct fractions: a premium #1 shred with less than 0.20 percent copper content, and a traditional #2 grade shred. Ultimately, Eriez says, the Shred1 gives scrap processors an advantage to demand a higher price per ton for their top-quality ferrous shred.
To further enhance recovery, Eriez recommends pairing a Shred1 Ballistic Separator with a P-Rex permanent rare earth magnetic drum, referred to as the CleanStream Process. Not only does the CleanStream Process recover more ferrous and concentrate 75 percent of the post-drum magnet flow into a low-copper premium shred, it also eliminates the need for a scavenger magnet, a z-box air system and hand picking the entire flow.
