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.
Traditionally, waste management companies have operated using a simple "management of waste" approach to operating a MRF. Throughput targets and continuous operation (minimal downtime) were the main driving forces. The industry has changed however, and the focus moving forward is now on optimizing system performance and reliability, in conjunction with increasing recycling rates and a drive for a "greener" and more sustainable tomorrow.
When considering the addition of, or upgrade to, an "intelligent" MRF, for municipalities or private operators, the main factors should always be the client's (operator) current requirements, and evolving market needs, which include throughput, reliability, output quality, and adaptability. Equally important is a full understanding of what is really expected from any proposed system. Having an engaged and focused mindset for the project with the client from the beginning, will impact and drive the entire design process. This then impacts the overall project result, through to the productive, efficient, ongoing operation of the facility itself.
