Eddy current separator (SWP)


Eddy current separator (SWP)

Eddy current separator (SWP)

The SWP-SBM eddy current separator equipped with a drum separator is designed for automatic separation of ferrous and non-ferrous metals from bulk or crushed materials. The separator recovers ferrous metals and valuable non-ferrous metals such as aluminum, copper, magnesium, zinc and silver with high efficiency.

The eddy current separator is reliable, very durable and designed for continuous operation. It has high metal separation efficiency. The high-power neodymium permanent magnets used in the polar wheel have high coercivity, which makes them difficult to demagnetize. Therefore, the eddy current separator has a long service life.
