In an attempt to improve the practicality of the eddy current separator (ECS), particularly for recycling sites that stockpile a large amount of infeed materials, Master Magnets’ ECS systems are now available as a mobile tracked machine.
The MasterTrax incorporates a 1,500mm-wide Master Magnets ECS with a rare earth drum magnet for the removal of fine ferrous metals. Other features include: vibratory feeder, three 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 a user of the new MasterTrax, said: “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.”
General manager Adrian Coleman said: “Working closely with Steelweld Fabrications 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.”
