Bunting's Eddy Current Separator

The University of Birmingham has purchased a Metal Separation Module from Bunting Magnetics for students researching recovery and recycling.

Demonstrated at this year’s RWM, the module includes a vibratory feeder to make sure there’s an even feed of material onto the machine, a drum magnet to attract and remove different magnetic materials and an eddy current separator where the rest of the non-magnetic fraction falls onto the belt.

The system is manufactured just up the road from RWM at Bunting’s Redditch plant on the outskirts of Birmingham.

It stands at just over four metres tall with a maximum width of 1.4 metres at the widest point, weighing approximately 1,500 kgs.

Adrian Coleman, general manager of Bunting-Redditch, said: “Allowing students and research professors access to the latest technology is vitally important. Reclaiming, recycling, and reusing our waste materials is one of the most important issues of modern times.

“The research undertaken by universities will identify new ways to successfully manage our waste, which will benefit the whole planet.”
