​Bunting Magnetics Co. awarded patent for innovative magnetic circuit design used in its SSSC Stainless Steel Separation Conveyor

Revolutionary magnetic circuit design captures up to 94% of large fraction stainless steel

Bunting Magnetics Co., the leader in moving, removing and holding metal, and the inventor of stainless steel separation, has been awarded a U.S. patent for its ground-breaking magnetic circuit design incorporated in the Stainless Steel Separation Conveyor (SSSC). The SSSC Stainless Steel Separation Conveyor, launched at ISRI 2017, has delivered game-changing solutions to the recycling industry ever since. Field tests have proven it removes up to 94% of large fraction stainless steel.

This innovative machine expanded the company's reach in the Auto Shredding Residue Industry for the separation of work-hardened stainless steel from Zurik streams, the purification of small fraction stainless steel and in ICW wire-chopping purification applications. 

"In addition to protecting this technology from being copied by competitors, the U.S. patent shows Bunting Magnetics' innovation, continual enhancement, design growth, and dedication to solving magnetic separation challenges in the Automotive Recycling Industry," said Don Suderman, Product Manager, Material Handling and inventor of the magnetic circuit design. 

"The SSSC is a natural progression from Bunting's High Intensity Separation Conveyor (HISC), which was the first of its kind in the industry and does an outstanding job separating smaller fraction stainless steel," said Suderman.

The heart of the SSSC system is the unique magnetic circuit design, which utilizes a patented configuration of high-strength neodymium magnets. It attracts, holds and extracts work-hardened, irregularly shaped stainless steel - up to a massive five inches in size - from the product recycling stream. 

"Because its unique magnetic circuit has a much stronger reach-out field above the belt than competitive products, it is even better for grabbing and holding onto larger irregular shaped pieces of stainless steel," Suderman explained. "It pushes the extreme high gauss field higher above the belt into the larger irregular pieces of shredded stainless steel metals and also creates a larger high intensity, collective flux field pattern, which holds onto those pieces far better than anything before this."

"The largest market for these units is in pulling and recovering mid and larger fraction of stainless steel from Zurik streams usually after the Finders.  The SSSC's unique high intensity magnetic circuit gives it the ability to reach out and recover these sizes of work hardened stainless steels from the stream and help purify that fraction to a high enough degree for domestic sales," Suderman says.

With the SSSC, auto shredders can also attain the purest product possible in several applications, including insulated copper wire (ICW) purification, during which the machine pulls out stainless steel and dirty contamination from the wire before chopping which dulls knives and purifying the chopped wire after chopping for cleaner higher purity copper for domestic sales.

"Even the smallest bits of stainless steel can cause damage to equipment down the product stream and lower the value of recycled product," explained Suderman. "It's imperative that we help our customers achieve maximum purity and our family of stainless steel separation conveyors does just that."

Composting Council Research Education Foundation releases report on soluble salts in compost

Composting Council Research Education Foundation releases report on soluble salts in compost

Compost contains a multitude of essential nutrients for plant growth, such as nitrogen (N), phosphorus (P) and potassium (K), and can also be a source of organic matter. However, recent concerns and criticisms have been directed toward composts with a high concentration of soluble salts. Soluble salts refer to the amount of soluble ions, such as calcium (Ca2+), potassium (K+), magnesium (Mg2+) and sodium (Na+), present in compost. Soluble salts are measured indirectly and cumulatively through electrical conductivity (EC).

Anaconda Equipment joins McLanahan family of companies

While Anaconda is joining the McLanahan family of companies, they will continue to operate in the marketplace as an independent brand. Their dealer network will remain and continue to support Anaconda customers around the globe.

In 2017, McLanahan Corporation began a partnership with Anaconda Equipment of Northern Ireland to distribute and sell Anaconda's line of mobile track equipment. As the relationship between the two companies progressed, it became clear that their values and business styles were closely aligned. Today, the two companies are proud to announce that Anaconda Equipment will officially join McLanahan Corporation's family of companies upon legal closing within the next 30 to 60 days.

Goudsmit builds magnets for iron-free carbon black

Goudsmit builds magnets for iron-free carbon black

Goudsmit recently built two magnets to be used for the production of iron-free carbon black by a large European manufacturer. These self-cleaning, rotating magnets remove iron particles as small as 30 microns from the very dry, poorly flowing conductive carbon black used for lithium-ion batteries.It is essential that this product is 100% metal-free, because metal particles would change the conductivity. In this line, the rotating magnets process at a relatively low capacity of 1500 kg per hour. If necessary, however, such magnets can process at  capacities of up to 40 m3 per hour.

BASF making products with chemically recycled plastics for first time

Dr. Stefan Gräter and Dr. Andreas Kicherer showing a sample of pyrolysis oil and thus produced plastic in front of the Steamcracker.

BASF is breaking new ground in plastic waste recycling with its ChemCycling project. Chemical recycling provides an innovative way to reutilize plastic waste that is currently not recycled, such as mixed or uncleaned plastics. Depending on the region, such waste is usually sent to landfill or burned with energy recovery. But chemical recycling offers another alternative: Using thermochemical processes, these plastics can be utilized to produce syngas or oils. The resulting recycled raw materials can be used as inputs in BASF's production, thereby partially replacing fossil resources.
