Master Magnets Develops in Eddy Current Separator Market

By chameleon | 26 May 2017

Taking the equipment to the waste.  It may sound obvious, but there are thousands of vehicles on our roads transporting waste every day.  The new ‘Mastertrax’ mobile Metal Separation Module allows the processing to take place at the location of the waste.  The environmental benefits are obvious.

The  ‘Mastertrax’ Mobile Metal Separation System includes a Vibratory Feeder, high intensity Rare Earth Drum Magnet (for the removal and recovery of ferrous metals) and a Eddy Current Separator.

Technological advances in Eddy Current Separation have significantly improved the efficiency, recovery rates and throughput capabilities of a machine that has always been one of the recycling industry’s soundest investments. In many cases, it is not uncommon for an Eddy Current Separator to pay for itself within the first six months of operation.

To increase the versatility of  the Eddy Current Separator, particularly for recycling sites that stockpile a large amount of their feed materials, Master Magnets Eddy Current Separators are now available as a mobile tracked machine.

The ‘Mastertrax’ Mobile Metal Separation Module

Master Magnets General Manager Adrian Coleman, is really excited with the new development.  “We wanted to bring a mobile Eddy Current Separator to market that was not only superior in manufacturing quality to anything else on the market, but could also still be cost-effective for the end user.  Working closely with the highly reputable Steelweld Fabrications Ltd in Cookstown has enabled us to produce a machine that is everything we had hoped for in terms of design, ease of use and durability.”

The MasterTrax incorporates a 1500mm wide Eddy Current Separator with a Rare Earth Drum Magnet for the removal of fine ferrous metals. Other features include:

  • Vibratory feeder
  • 3 integrated inclined discharge conveyors with hydraulic folding
  • 65Kw Generator (can also be powered via mains supply)
  • On board working lights and an air compressor for cleaning

Rob Symons, Owner of CRJ Services and user of the new MasterTrax, writes:

“As a company that specialises in the hire of large plant and equipment, we need machines that we are confident our clients can rely on. Having purchased Master Magnets Eddy Current Separators in the past, we knew that we can trust in the quality of their manufacture and service, however the demand from our clients for a mobile ECS unit was increasing all the time. We worked closely with Master Magnets on the design brief for the ECS, before teaming up with Steelweld to turn our vision into a fully operational production machine. We were very keen to purchase the first MasterTrax unit and we now have two in our fleet.”
