Watch the videos: How to set up and maintain an eddy current separator
New videos available to help recyclers with maintenance and setup of ECS
Eriez' new videos feature, which are designed with an eccentrically mounted magnetic rotor within a non-conductive shell to separate nonferrous metals. The rare earth rotor produces a powerful and focused field at the end of the belt.
The preventative maintenance tips video provides a helpful checklist that informs operators about essential steps to take to ensure long and productive performance from their RevX-E Eddy Current Separator. It covers daily and monthly maintenance recommendations.
The video focused on changing and tensioning the belt explains the RevX-E's new cantilevered design, which enables maintenance staff to change the belt in 10 minutes. It provides easy to follow instructions for completing this task and describes how the Eriez Eddy Current Separator can be put back in operation quickly because of the modifications for the quick belt change out.
The final video in this three-part series illustrates how to successfully and safely set up and adjust the splitter and rotor on the RevX-E Eccentric Eddy Current Separator. It shows operators performing each step and utilizes graphics and up-close equipment views to make following along simple.

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.
