Model SMAR - Patented Eddy Current Separator
From Metal Extraction
SMAR is a family of patented separators of Non-magnetic (non-ferrous) Metals with reinforced protection. The patent consists of introducing a third roller in the eddy current separator in order to set the winding angle of the belt around the magnet wheel.
This design has many advantages:
- low retention time of ferrous metals in the zone of induction to eliminate the risk of burning the belt,
- large reduction of radial forces on the magnet wheel enabling the use of thick belts and thin composite shell. The longevity of the bearings is also increased,
- Ideal operation of the belt scraper, placed in front of the third roller.
Developed in 1989 for automobile shredder, the SMAR are intended for the automatic sorting of different non-ferrous metals in difficult environments (outside, dust, humidity, chemical aggressiveness).
The SMAR are thereby classified in incineration units, foundries, floatation, fluff installations, processing of slag, etc.
