Demand for Eriez RevX-E ECS accelerating among MRFs
Highly efficient UBC recovery and maintenance-friendly design features proving the right fit for recycling facilities
Eriez has reported that sales of the company's new generation RevX-E Eddy Current Separators are on the rise, particularly to materials recovery facilities (MRFs). According to the company, these high performance units are highly sought after by MRFs for their maintenance-friendly features and superior used beverage can (UBC) recovery.
Recycling Product Manager Chris Ramsdell explains, "Independent tests prove our RevX-E Eddy Current Separators throw aluminum material nearly 20 percent farther than other brands. This extra distance improves aluminum grade and increases recovery, resulting in substantially more profits for MRFs." He adds that independent test data is available from Eriez upon request.
Eriez offers two rotor assemblies to conquer the challenges of various recycling industry applications: LT2 and ST22. The LT2 8-pole rare earth eccentric rotor assembly is designed to sort coarse material greater than 1-inch, making it ideally suited for recovery of UBCs. The ST22 is a 22-pole rare earth eccentric rotor assembly designed for recovery of nonferrous fines sized less than 1-inch.
According to Ramsdell , "The eccentric design incorporated into both rotor options protects against potential damage from ferrous contamination in the material stream while maintaining a high level of separation performance."
Ramsdell adds that the Eriez team consulted with numerous users and equipment integrators when developing the newest RevX-E Eddy Current Separators and delivered a design to meet their demands for reducing downtime. The RevX-E's larger access panels are conveniently located to enable trouble-free and speedy service. A unique cantilever frame expedites conveyor belt maintenance, allowing the belt to be replaced in less than 10 minutes. The RevX-E incorporates a rack and pinion splitter design to allow for easy splitter adjustment to maximize recovery.
Eriez RevX-E Eddy Current Separators are available in 40, 48 and 60-inch widths. Units can be supplied complete with a heavy-duty vibratory feeder and controls for turnkey installation.

With an Acculoader automatic loading system, even smaller yards can take advantage of surging overseas demand for containerized scrap metal
Traditionally, recyclers across Canada have sent a huge percentage of their recovered scrap metal to Hamilton, Ontario, or Pennsylvania in the U.S., via open-top rail cars and truck trailers. The scrap is then melted down and turned into new steel. This is still the case for much of our scrap steel, but recently the growing trend toward containerization has introduced new opportunities for efficient, cost-effective shipping of both non-ferrous and ferrous materials to overseas markets.
