Metal Recovery Focus at CARS 18

Metal Recovery Equipment on Show at CARS Exhibition

At the CARS 2018 exhibition (11-12 July 2018, NAEC, Stoneleigh, UK), the focus on stand M6 will be on maximising the recovery of metal whilst also maintaining purity levels.

The Complete Auto Recycling Show (CARS) is Europe’s premier event for auto recyclers and material processors. It is the only event of its kind, drawing over 1,200 attendees from across the globe in 2016.

Unlike traditional trade shows, visitors get the chance to experience not only the indoor exhibitions, but to see working line demonstrations, participate in offsite tours, visit the Skills Lab and access the Conference Theatre – all included within the free ticket.

Master Magnets, the recycling focused division of Bunting Magnetics Europe Ltd, will be demonstrating the separation and recovery of non-ferrous metals and stainless steel on stand M6.

“Our focus is on recovering as much metal as possible in a high value grade,” explained Dave Hills, Bunting and Master Magnets Head of Sales.  “There is always a balance between recovery and purity and the best results often come from several stages of separation.”

Master Magnets has a complete range of metal separation equipment for every stage of metal recovery.

Ferrous Metal Separation

drum_magnet_installation

The primary metal separation stage in any recycling plant focused on ferrous metals.  Large Drum Magnets, specifically designed for the arduous environment, are commonly used along with smaller Drum Magnets and Pulley Magnets.

Non Ferrous Metal Recovery

Eddy Current

Eddy Current Separator designs have been perfected to enable the recovery of even the smallest non-ferrous metals.  Two rotor configurations (ie concentric or eccentric) are available to suit the specific application.  Recent developments include a precise splitter positioning system to maximise recovery and purity.

Stainless Steel Separation

Stainless Steel Magnetic Separators are a relatively new addition to the metal separation range of equipment that has been extremely popular in USA secondary metal processing plants.  There are two variations available:

HISC (High Intensity Separation Conveyor) – This enables the magnetic separation of small and mid-sized stainless steel – 10mm to 40mm (½” to 1½”) – and for wire-cleaning applications.

SSSC (Stainless Steel Separation Conveyor) – With a patent magnetic circuit design of high-intensity neodymium magnets, the SSSC can remove up to 94% of irregular shaped stainless steel – up to 125mm (5”) in size – from auto shredding or wire chopping stream.

On stand M6 at the CARS exhibition there will be demonstrations of both non-ferrous metal recovery on an Eddy Current Separator and Stainless Steel separation.

Metal Separation MOT at WASTE 18

A Free Review of Magnetic Separators and Eddy Current Separators

At this week’s WASTE’18 Expo (Thursday, 5th July 2018, Warwickshire Event Centre, Leamington Spa, UK), on stand A Bunting Magnetics and Master Magnets are offering a free Metal Separation MOT.

The Metal Separation MOT involves a site visit to review the positioning, set-up, strength, and separation performance of Magnetic Separators and Eddy Current Separators.

Over time, it is not unusual to find that the positioning and set-up of metal separation equipment has been changed.  This may have occurred during a maintenance period or during a break down, or there could have been a change in the plant layout.  Assessing the installation as an external auditor enables a review with a fresh pair of eyes.  At the end of the MOT, a report is prepared and submitted and this can form part of a company’s quality management.

For further information, please see us on stand A at the WASTE’18 expo.

At the show, Bunting and Master Magnets will be exhibiting and demonstrating the Stainless Steel Magnetic Separator and the Mastermag Eddy Current Separator.

Separating Stainless Steel

Bunting Master Magnets at RWM17

The successful recovery or extraction of stainless steel from mixed non-ferrous metals (eg WEEE) or non-metallic materials (eg plastic waste) has been an issue for many recycling companies.  The Stainless Steel Magnetic Separator has been designed with an ultra strong magnetic circuit to attract and deflect the weakly magnetic metal.  Stainless Steel becomes weakly magnetic, usually on the edges, when passing through a shredder or granulator.  Demonstrations on stand A at WASTE’18 will show stainless steel being separated.

Separating Non Ferrous Metals

Maximising the recovery of non-ferrous metals, such as aluminium and copper, increases financial return whilst also reduces the amount of material passing to landfill.  On the stand, there will be demonstrations to show how effective the Mastermag Eddy Current Separator is in the high yield and high purity separation of small and large non-ferrous metals.

With the global focus on waste management and recycling, especially with regards to plastic waste, this year’s WASTE’18 is expected to be busier than ever.

Hillhead Attracts Bunting Europe

Bunting Europe Exhibit at Hillhead for the First Time

Magnetic Separators and Metal Detectors for the quarrying, mining and recycling industry will be on show on stand C9 at this year’s Hillhead exhibition (Hillhead Quarry, Buxton, 26-28 June 2018).

Bunting Master Magnets at RWM17

The joint Bunting Europe and Master Magnets stand will feature Permanent Overband Magnets (self and manual clean designs) and two different types of Metal Detector (the TN77 and QTA).

“Hillhead has always been a really important exhibition for Master Magnets,” said Dave Hills, Bunting’s Head of Sales.  “The Master Magnets Overband Magnets and Metal Detection Ltd range of detectors are widely regarded as industry standards for both quarrying and recycling.”

Held in a limestone quarry in the heart of the Derbyshire countryside, Hillhead is the largest exhibition of its kind anywhere in the world. Continually adapting, it provides a spectacular and unique setting for exhibitors and visitors alike to do business amongst live working demonstrations and static displays.

Many quarries use the combination of a Permanent Overband Magnet and Metal Detector to protect processing equipment such as screens, crushers and conveyor belts.  The Overband Magnet removes any magnetic tramp metal leaving the Metal Detector to identify non-magnetic metal parts such as manganese steel digger teeth.

“The recycling of construction waste continues to grow in importance and features strongly at Hillhead,” said Dave.  “With equipment such as the Mastertrax Mobile Eddy Current Separator, we have practical solutions for removing ferrous and non-ferrous metals.”

May through to July is a very busy exhibition period for Bunting Europe and Master Magnets.  Hillhead is just over one month after the very successful IFAT waste and recycling show in Germany and is followed by the Waste ’18 exhibition (Warwickshire Exhibition Centre, 5 July) and CARS (NAEC Stoneleigh, 11-12 July).

“Exhibiting at these events is so important,” explained Dave.  “We meet both existing and potentially new clients and can also show them what our equipment can do.”

Master Magnets Mobile Eddy Current Separator (1200)

Metal Separation Demos Ignite Interest at IFAT 2018

Visitors to IFAT 2018 Enthralled by Working Magnetic Separators

An Eddy Current Separator was violently expelling non-ferrous metals from plastic waste on one side of the stand, whilst large chunks of fragmented stainless steel were being separated by the SSSC on the other.  ‘Seeing Is Believing’ was very much the basis of the Bunting and Master Magnets stand at IFAT 2018 (14th – 18th May 2018).

“We wanted to showcase our metal separation technology,” explained Dave Hills, Bunting’s Head of Sales, “and that meant having production-sized equipment operating on the stand.  The positive reaction of visitors highlighted the importance of being able to show metal being separated.”

IFAT is the first major waste and recycling exhibition of 2018 in Europe, featuring 3,305 exhibitors and over 141,000 visitors.  Key topics discussed during the week-long show included the filtering of microplastics; more effective recycling of plastics; and the digital transformation of the entire industry.

“Effective metal separation is vital for the successful recycling and reuse of many secondary materials,” said Dave.  “As a specialist in Magnetic Separation, we believed that the IFAT show provided the perfect platform to show recycling companies what is possible.  The show proved to be exceptionally successful and we are now in discussion with companies all over the world.”

Following the IFAT exhibition, many companies who visited the stand are sending samples to the Master Magnets laboratory in the UK for controlled tests to confirm the separation capability of both the Eddy Current Separator and Stainless Steel Magnetic Separator.

“There was a lot of interest in the Stainless Steel Magnetic Separator.  Stainless steel is a problematic material and, due to it’s hardness, can cause real problems in granulators and shredders.  Visitors were often surprised to see large fragmented stainless steel being attracted and separated.  It has generated a huge amount of interest and there is a lot of work to do.”

Plastics Positivity at Technivation

Polymer Training and Innovation Centre Hosts UK Plastics Sector Professionals

The Technivation conference, hosted by the Polymer Training and Innovation Centre in Telford (18th April 2018), attracted delegates from across the UK plastics sector.

The Polymer Training and Innovation Centre (PITC) provides training for engineers working with plastics and has an extensive range of working equipment including moulding machines, pneumatic conveying systems, and magnetic separators.

Bunting Europe at TechnivationAt Technivation, there were talks from machinery manufacturers and also an industry update from the British Plastics Federation.  BPF Membership Services Director, Stephen Hunt, highlighted a change in the awareness and public perception of plastics since the airing of the BBC Blue Planet II series at the end of 2017.  The BPF have been working hard to clarify misconceptions about plastics, highlighting that plastic is vital in the manufacture of so many products including cars, medical equipment, and IT.  They are presently working closely with the UK Government on the proposed tax for single use plastics, which closes on 18th May 2018.

As Stephen Hunt explained, the plastics sector is the 8th largest exporting industry in the UK with a turnover of £25.5 billion.  The sector is also the 2nd largest employer in the manufacturing industry.  He also highlighted how waste from the USA and European Union combined only contributes 2% to the amount of plastic waste found in our oceans.

Delegates at Technivation had the opportunity to tour the training facility and meet representatives from equipment manufacturers including Summit Systems, Kistler, Arburg, and Staubli.  Tom Higginbottom, Bunting’s Sales Engineer, was demonstrating how to effectively remove metal from the plastics process using a combination of a FF Drawer Filter Magnet and Quicktron Metal Detector.

“At Technivation it was really good to be able to demonstrate how to remove metal and also to show how the equipment is actually installed on a working moulding machine,” explained Tom.  “We supplied the FF Drawer Filter Magnets to PTIC so that the importance of metal removal is included in the training programmes.”
