Magnetic Separators on Display at UK’s Leading Recycling Exhibition
Demonstration is the focus on the Bunting Magnetics Europe stand 5R81 at RWM16 (13th – 15th September 2016 NEC Birmingham UK) with a fully operational High Intensity Separation Conveyor (HISC) separating both stainless steel and printed circuit boards from non-magnetic materials.
Bunting Magnetics is one of the world’s leading suppliers of Magnetic Separators and Metal Detectors and the European manufacturing headquarters are based in Berkhamsted in Hertfordshire, UK. Since first exhibiting at RWM in 2013, Bunting has developed a strong reputation for supplying high specification Magnetic Separators and Eddy Current Separators.
On stand 5R81 at RWM16, Bunting will have a High Intensity Separation Conveyor (HISC), a Twin Pole Overband Magnet, a Metal Separator (combined magnetic separator and metal detector), Grate Magnets, Plates Magnets and Tube Cartridge Magnets.
“We have a ‘Seeing Is Believing’ attitude at exhibitions,” explained Dave Hills, Bunting’s Head of Sales. “When customers visit our stand we do not want to just talk about how a Magnetic Separator performs, we want to show it. Our HISC will be seen separating stainless steel and printed circuit boards from non-magnetic materials. On our Twin Pole Overband Magnet, visitors will be able to feel the magnetic force trying to rip steel out of their hands when the place it under the magnet face. It will be exciting for customers and us!”
Since launching the HISC at RWM in 2015, Bunting has sold and installed the high strength permanent Magnetic Separator in recycling operations around the world. The HISC has been particularly successful in the plastics sector, removing small weakly magnetic stainless steel.
“RWM proved to be the ideal platform to launch the HISC in 2015 and we want to build on that success. When you tell people that the HISC can separate non-magnetic stainless steel, they do not believe you. Seeing the expressions of those same people when they see the separation happening on the stand, in front of them, is fantastic.”
Bunting specialise in separating metals using both Magnetic Separators and Metal Detectors, a combination used on the successful Metal Separator.
“We will also be demonstrating the Metal Separator. Metal contaminated plastic will be gravity fed into a feed hopper and immediately into a FF Grate Magnet. Here magnetic particles are captured before the remaining plastic falls into the Metal Detector which identifies and rejects any non-ferrous metals,” said Hills.
Bunting will also have smaller Magnetic Separators, including Plate Magnets and Tube Cartridge Magnets where customers can experience the strength of the magnetic force by attempting to pull steel bolts off the surface.
Hills is excited by the opportunities at the show. “Seeing actually is believing and we want visitors to be excited when they are on our stand.”
