Detecting and Removing Tramp Metal from Conveyors

Metal Detector

The process of quarrying aggregate and mining ore often results in the introduction of tramp metal.  The effective detection and removal of this tramp metal is critical to prevent damage to crushers, screens and conveyors, and is achieved using metal detectors and magnetic separators. The design of metal detector or magnetic separator is dependent upon…

Metal Recovery from Incinerator Bottom Ash

industrial magnets uk

Burning any sort of waste produces an ash by-product often called ‘incinerator bottom ash’ or ‘furnace ash’.  Commonly, this ash contains a high proportion of recoverable metal.  This mix of ferrous and non-ferrous metal is recovered using Magnetic Separators and Eddy Current Separators. Ferrous Metal Recovery For one of our latest projects, we undertook extensive…
