Eriez updates eccentric eddy current separators to increase performance, minimize maintenance
Eriez Separation and Recycling Product Manager Chris Ramsdell says the company consulted with recycling customers and designed the RevX-E to meet their needs. He explains, "We consistently heard the same demands from customers: they wanted high power with low maintenance, minimal downtime and a longer service life. We delivered on all these points with our RevX-E Eddy Current Separator."
Eriez' RevX-E Eddy Current Separators feature an eccentrically mounted magnetic rotor within a non-conductive shell for separation of nonferrous metals. The rare earth rotor produces a powerful field focused at the end of the belt.
"We thought a lot about ease of maintenance when developing this machine," says Ramsdell. The RevX-E's updated design takes up less floor space and incorporates a cantilevered frame which enables maintenance staff to change the belt in less than 10 minutes. A new hood with adjustable splitter allows operators to handle nonferrous materials in varying sizes and ensures optimum separation. Large access panels all around the machine make entry for maintenance hassle-free.
The RevX-E is available in two models: ST22 and LT2. Both models are manufactured on the same eddy current separator framework. Ramsdell says the only difference between the ST22 and LT2 is the magnet configuration on the rotor assemblies.
ST22 features a 22 pole rare earth eccentric rotor and is designed to handle fine materials that are less than 1-inch. This rotor option offers a high pole change frequency for removal of fine nonferrous metals from shredded plastics / PET flake.
LT2 features an eight pole rare earth eccentric rotor and is designed to handle 1-inch and larger coarse materials. This rotor option offers a deep, high-powered eddy current field that allows for the removal of larger nonferrous metals such as crushed aluminum cans from a PET bottle stream.

Single-Ram and II-Ram High-Capacity Balers
At Machinex, we've been designing sorting systems for over 35 years, so we know how essential it is for MRF operators to have a baler they can trust and not worry about its operational reliability. This is why we design and manufacture reliable single-ram and II-ram high-capacity balers to specifically help optimize their operations.
Watch the video of our expert who presents the main features of Machinex balers delivering these important benefits:
- Easy & accessible maintenance
- Reduced maintenance & bale handling costs
- Energy savings
- Optimal bale density
For C&D recyclers, waste haulers, demolition contractors and landfills, there is a growing opportunity to profit from rethinking processes. Although every operation is different, by streamlining the front end of the C&D operation processes with purpose-built technologies, recyclers can tap into new end markets, accommodate higher material volumes, stay ahead of regulatory restrictions, increase recovery rates and add commodity revenue, while decreasing labor and other costs.
