Crushing quarried aggregate is a key process stage of most quarries and when recycling demolition waste.  Effectively protecting the crusher from rogue tramp metal damage prevents production losses and repair costs. The wide range of available crushing technology enables the production of optimally sized aggregate.  Whereas Jaw and Gyratory designs commonly feature as primary crushers,…

Recycling plastic waste is challenging at the best of times. However, when contaminated with ferrous metals, recycling is hindered by equipment damage, production downtime and poor end product quality. Thankfully, installing the optimum magnetic separator ensures that such ferrous metal contamination is removed. In this article we look at three examples of ferrous metal contamination…

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…
