Eriez's advanced fines processing system, FinesSort, provides a cost-effective method for recovering metals from the classified fines in a scrap shredding operation. The fines typically represent less than 0.5" material screened from the process stream. In the past, this material was too small to treat with conventional process equipment, so it was sent to the landfill. This operation recovers the previously lost metals, turning a waste stream into cash flow, the company says.

The system features a feeder coupled to a magnetic separator and eddy-current separator to produce both a ferrous and non-ferrous metal product. The feeder delivers a uniform feed distribution across the width of the magnetic drum separator. The magnetic separator recovers all ferrous materials in the process stream. The nonferrous materials from the magnetic separation are delivered to the eddy-current separator where non-ferrous metals, such as copper and aluminum, are recovered.
