Cable Recycling diagram

There is a wealth of valuable metals present in WEEE (Waste of Electrical and Electronic Equipment) and cables. However, the recovery is often difficult due to the small particle size range and variable nature of the metals. With the development and launch of the ElectroStatic Separator [in 2020], Bunting now provides a complete multi-stage metal…

Chute Magnet Separator Checks Magnetic Susceptibility

The Chute Magnet Separator or Magnetic Slide is a simple but important laboratory-scale wet magnetic separator for any material test facility.  This magnetic test equipment enables the assessment of a particle’s magnetic susceptibility, which provides the platform for further tests on specific wet magnetic separators. Wet magnetic separation techniques are employed when processing slurries (i.e.…
