Non-ferrous metal separator SWP-12B


Non-ferrous metal separator SWP-12B

Eddy current separator (SWP 20B)

The SWP-12B type eddy current separator is designed for automatic separation of aluminum cans and other larger non-ferrous metals from waste materials. The non-ferrous metal separator recovers aluminum, copper, magnesium, zinc, silver and other valuable non-ferrous metals.

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