Eriez has released a new white paper which makes a compelling case for producing low-copper steel with ballistic separators. The paper compares the Eriez Shred1 Ballistic Separator to several other widely used ferrous scrap upgrading systems, revealing that the Shred1 is a low investment option which cuts hand picking labour in half.

 "The Case for Producing Low-Copper Steel with Ballistic Separators" written by Eriez Metals Recycling Market Manager Mike Shattuck and Eriez Recycling Product Manager Chris Ramsdell, begins by emphasizing the demand from today's steel mills for low copper steel. It goes on to examine the many challenges processors face when producing low copper steel to meet a typical mill's exacting specifications.
 
The new white paper provides an overview of three of the most popular recovery systems used to produce low copper steel: gamma scrap analyzers, scrap drums with variable rectifier and X-tract X-ray Fluorescence (XRF) Separators. It covers the capabilities, advantages, drawbacks and average melt results for each piece of equipment. The final section focuses on the Eriez Shred1 Ballistic Separator. It describes how this equipment uses ballistics to efficiently separate iron-rich ferrous from mixed metals in the post-drum magnet flow.  It also includes a chart depicting a typical ferrous system layout.

According to the white paper, the Shred1 has minimal ongoing operating costs with no need for air and only very little electricity. Since the Shred1 is entirely automated, hand picking labor becomes more focused and efficient. Scrap dealers with a capacity of 400 tons per day are reporting the need for only two pickers, which represents a reduction of 50 percent when compared to strictly relying on hand-sorting. 

"As evidenced in the white paper, the Eriez Shred1 Ballistic Separator provides significant advantages over other recovery systems," says Shattuck. To learn more, download "The Case for Producing Low-Copper Steel with Ballistic Separators" by visiting http://erieznews.com/nr439.
