High Interest in Magnetic Separators and Eddy Current Separators at Waste 17
Despite the rain and the General Election, Waste 17 proved to be a great success on 8th June 2017. The Waste 17 exhibition was held at Manchester United’s ‘Theatre of Dreams’, their Old Trafford football ground, with both indoor and outdoor exhibits.
“We were really excited [about Waste 17] as this was the first time that Bunting Magnetics and Master Magnets had exhibited together since the announcement of the acquisition in January ,” said Bunting Managing Director, Simon Ayling.
Bunting and Master Magnets were headline sponsors of the only Northern-located recycling and waste exhibition, organised by the team at Skip Hire Magazine. The exhibition was well attended by both exhibitors and visitors. In the external area, there was a wide range of large mobile recycling plant, waste collection skips, and vehicles. Companies in the indoor exhibition were providing both services and equipment to the waste and recycling sector. There was also a seminar area.
The Bunting/Master Magnets stand was located directly in front of the main entrance doors and on display was an operating Eddy Current Separator, Permanent Overband Magnet, and Metal Detector. On the Eddy Current Separator, small non-ferrous metal was being separated from shredded plastic.
“This year we wanted to show visitors our equipment,” explained Simon. “Having a working Eddy Current Separator on the stand is always impressive and we were able demonstrate the separation capabilities. There was a really positive reaction from the visitors’ and we are sure that undertaking demonstrations was an important factor in the high number of enquiries.”
The team were also able to demonstrate the depth of field of the Permanent Overband Magnet, used to separate ferrous metals from conveyed non-magnetic material as found in MRFs and Sorting Stations.
“The joining of Bunting and Master Magnets has been tremendously successful. Being together at Waste 17 gave us a chance to meet and talk with existing and new customers and show that our ability to provide a complete metal separation solution has been enhanced. We are now looking forward to our next joint exhibition, RWM17.”
