Metal Separation / Magnetic Separation

Metal separation is a critical process within a recycling plant. Firstly, it involves the separation of a high value commodity product. Secondly, its removal is important for the effective operation of downstream activities such as secondary shredding, optical sorting and Refuse Derived Fuel (RDF) production.

Overband Magnets / Over band Magnets

Overband magnets are designed for the continuous removal of ferrous metal such as steel from a product stream. The overband magnet is suspended above the feed line. As the ferrous metal passes under the magnet it is lifted out of the product feed and swept out of the magnetic field to a discharge point by cleated overband magnets. 

Kiverco have a wide range of overband magnets available and, depending on the application, permanent or electromagnets can be utilised.

Eddy Current Separators

Eddy Current Separators (ECS) are designed to separate non-ferrous conducting metals such as aluminium, copper and magnesium from a given waste or product stream. At Kiverco, we offer ECS solutions that process metal fragments down to 0.5mm, producing high-value recovery and purity rates.
