The operating principle INPx STRATOS
General operating principle of Eddy Current Separators
Conductive particles (aluminium, copper, etc.) are separated from insulators. The eddy currents are induced in conductive particles due to a time-varying magnetic field. This results in repulsive forces.
Owing to the particularly strong permanentmagnetic field and the high speed of the magnetic rotor, good separation results can be obtained even with small or difficult-to-separate materials.
The material to be separated is transported over the belt conveyor in a single-particle-layer and gets to the area of fast rotating magnetic fields of the head pulley at the discharge side. This induces eddy currents which build up a magnetic field in each particle of non-ferrous metal. The magnetic field opposes the permanentmagnetic field of the magnetic rotor. Therefore a strong impulse is exerted on the parts of non-ferrous metals, throwing these particles off the stream of the conveyed material.
Operating principle of the eccentric Eddy Current Separator INPx STRATOS
The INPx STRATOS has a horizontal, eccentrically arranged magnetic drum with extremely strong neodymium permanent magnets.
The large rotor diameter causes a strong, deep magnetic field and is therefore particularly suitable for the separation of finest non-ferrous metals (up to 15mm). The discharge point is individually adjustable. Its special multi-pole magnet system results in exceptionally good separation results.
