Mastermag Help Finnish Waste Sorting

In early 2015 Master Magnets were contacted by their Finnish dealer-Vimelco regarding a new project for a waste treatment facility processing municipal solid waste (MSW) and solid recovered fuel (SRF) in Lahti, 105km northeast of Helsinki.  This new plant would be handling an input in excess of 66,000 TPA of this mixed waste and Master Magnets were asked to provide a solution for the recovery of an estimated 2700 TPA of ferrous and non-ferrous metals in the material. The incoming material was sized into two different fractions, a 3D and 2D fraction with a size range from 20mm to 200mm.  more

27 Year Old Magnet Still Going Strong!

In July this year Master Magnets were contacted by a customer whose transformer rectifier for their electo-magnet had failed. Master Magnets separation equipment is known for its quality and longevity, therefore we were somewhat surprised at the failure, until we dug through the archives and realised that the magnet had been supplied back in 1989 and was older than some of our members of staff! When we discussed with the customer how old the magnet actually was they couldn’t believe that it had been installed so long ago! 1989 was the year of the fall of the Berlin Wall, the first GPS more

Mastermag Supplies ECS To Spanish Metal Recycler

Master Magnets have recently worked very closely with one of Spain’s leading plant and equipment manufacturers Cometel S.A. to supply an Eddy Current Separator, as part of a new processing line being installed at a scrap metal plant in the North of Spain. Despite the relatively low value of scrap metals, Eddy Current Separators still prove to be a sound investment, with payback periods often being met within 12 months of installation. To clarify the expected efficiency of the Eddy Current process with the end user, a Master Magnets Sales Engineer visited the scrap processing plant to view more

Laboratory Equipment Supplied To Belgium

DRY PROCESSING Research Institute Vito NV located in Belgium has bought several items of Laboratory Magnetic Equipment from Master Magnets to evaluate the magnetic properties of different minerals in their research. To test dry, free-flowing materials they purchased a High Intensity Bench Top Induced Roll, which can be very selective due to the many ways to adjust the magnetic intensity in the separation zone. The control panel provides variable flux control to the magnetic coils increasing or decreasing the magnetic intensity. The roll speed can be adjusted varying the centrifugal forces more

Electro Overband Obtains CSA Approval

Master Magnets are celebrating success, having won CSA (Canadian Standards Agency) hazardous location approval for one of their large in-line electro-magnetic overband separators. The Canadian end users required a heavy-duty solution, manufactured to CSA standards for a potentially explosive atmosphere but were struggling to find a supplier willing to handle the extra work to accommodate the Standards. Sales engineer Alison Flower explains: “CSA standards are hard for European magnet companies to manufacture to. Unlike ATEX, there is no self certification available and there are more

New Business Relationship Flourishes Following RWM Order

This year’s RWM has had mixed reviews from exhibitors, with the move to the larger halls meaning that visitors had to walk further and the halls looked emptier, despite the claims of larger visitor numbers. Although the numbers of enquiries that many companies received were down on previous years, it is not always about quantity and Master Magnets were very pleased with what resulted from several high-quality leads.   Master Magnets were particularly pleased to meet with an equipment dealer looking for a magnet supplier to complement the existing range of recycling equipment that more
