Bunting Magnetics has developed a magnetic separator for the recovery of printed circuit boards (PCBs), which contain gold, palladium, silver, copper and hazardous materials.
The high intensity separation conveyor (HISC) has an exceptional strong magnetic head pulley, and was originally designed to separate very weakly magnetic materials.
The HISC is commonly installed after primary magnetic and eddy current separation. It is used either to remove weakly magnetic materials from the primary product to produce a clean recycled material (such as uPVC window frames, recycled plastics) or recover valuable materials (such as stainless steel and PCBs).
The strength of the magnetic field is far greater than standard separators, extending the capabilities from simple removal of ferrous and strongly magnetic materials to those that have a very low magnetic susceptibility.
