  1. Six Metre Double-Stacked Eddy Current Separator Module Supplied to St. Margarets Recycling for Complete Metal Recovery
    17 April 2019

    Eriez Europe has provided a one-stop custom solution to St. Margarets Metal Recycling and Transfer Centre Ltd. metal recovery problem within their scrapping process. Eriez designed and manufactured a dual-pass Eddy Current Separator (ECS) module that will allow for optimum separation of ferrous and non-ferrous metals.

    St. Margarets is a large recycling centre with a metals division, specialising in the buying and selling of scrap metals, including high carbon steel, stainless steel, aluminium, brass, copper, lead and zinc. They approached Eriez with the requirement to separate ferrous and non-ferrous metals from automotive shredder residue (ASR) to increase the purity of their end product and command the highest possible resale value. Given Eriez’ vast knowledge of metal separation and decades of experience in the recycling industry, a custom solution was recommended. The six metre high module includes a vibratory feeder, magnetic drum separator and two 1.5 metre wide Eddy Current Separators.

    The vibratory feeder ensures an even, mono-layer spread of material to maximise efficiency and improve separation before it is fed into the permanent magnetic drum separator. Here the larger pieces of ferrous metals are recovered before the material passes through the conveyors on the Eddy Current Separators separating the valuable non-ferrous metals from the ASR. A dual-pass process where the material passes through a second Eddy Current Separator optimises metal recovery, providing a clean, high-quality end-product.

    The unit has now been despatched to Dublin and is awaiting installation in St. Margarets Recycling Centre. Gareth Meese, Sales Director at Eriez Europe commented: “The ECS module supplied to St. Margarets is one of the largest units we’ve supplied recently. It provides an efficient, economical solution to recycling and waste companies who require maximum levels of ferrous and non-ferrous metal recovery from different waste streams. The recycling industry continues to be a key area of focus for Eriez Europe. Through continuous research and development of our separation technologies, we have added significant value to our customers processing requirements and are pleased to supply St. Margarets with a complete metal recovery solution with our ECS module.”

    Bryan McDonnell of St. Margarets commented, “The Eddy Current Separator supplied by Eriez Europe will ensure a vast improvement to our recycling process, improving the product purity and resale value of the metals recovered.”

    Eriez has a proven track record of providing valuable metal separation solutions to the recycling industry. For further information, contact Eriez on +44(029 2086 8501 or email info-europe@eriez.com

  2. Eriez Metalarm Metal Detector sold to MMD Mineral Sizing (Europe) Ltd. for The HALO Trust’s landmine removal efforts in Africa.
    5 April 2019

    Eriez Magnetics Europe recently sold a Metalarm Metal Detector to MMD (Mining Machinery Developments). The Metalarm Metal Detector was then donated to The HALO Trust (Hazardous Area Life-support Organisation) to speed up anti-personnel landmine clearance in Zimbabwe and to help support the global Landmine Free 2025 campaign.

    MMD designed a mobile Demining Sizer rig to donate to The HALO Trust to help reach this commitment. Eriez Europe was tasked with designing a metal detector for the mobile rig to detect larger mines prior to them entering the crusher chamber. Working with MMD’s design team, Eriez provided a special metal detector allowing smaller contaminates to be ignored while still detecting larger pieces – this prevents unnecessary belt stoppages but still stops any larger pieces damaging downstream machinery.

    Eriez advised on the installation requirements for the metal detector ensuring a successful installation and commissioning at MMD’s site in Derbyshire. The HALO Trust ran a number of successful tests with dummy anti-personnel landmines. 

    Both Eriez Europe and MMD are world leaders in the manufacturing industry. Eriez Europe is recognised for their extensive knowledge and experience in separation technologies and last year, celebrated 50 years of manufacturing excellence in Europe. MMD celebrated a landmark year in 2018, celebrating 40 years in business in the design, manufacture and supply of mineral processing solutions and associated machinery serving the mining, quarrying and recycling industries.|

    The HALO Trust is a humanitarian mine clearance organisation registered as a charity in both the UK and US. Its mission is to protect lives and restore livelihoods for those affected by conflict by removing landmines and other debris of war.

    HALO employs over 9,000 deminers worldwide, including 350 national staff in Zimbabwe, one of the most highly mine-impacted countries in the world. Highly dense belts of landmines (reportedly 5,500 mines per km) were laid along the borders with Zambia and Mozambique during the Liberation War of the 1970s and HALO has been demining there since 2013, with a clearance rate of approximately 500 mines per month.

    The metal detectors on the rig will make a significant difference to HALO's clearance rate.

    The MMD Demining Sizer rig was officially handed over to The HALO Trust at Hillhead 2018 and is currently in transit to Zimbabwe, where local management have said it will 'make a real difference to tens of thousands of people's lives.'

    Paul Hale, Metal Detection Sales Manager, at Eriez Europe comments, “Eriez is very proud to work with MMD on this project and to support the incredible work of The HALO Trust. It is fantastic to know that our Metalarm Metal Detector will help towards eliminating mines in Zimbabwe and make a difference to so many people’s lives.”

  4. New compact suspended overband magnet to make debut at Steinexpo 2017
    14 July 2017

    Eriez Europe will be showcasing the latest solutions in metal detection and removal for the mining and quarry industries at the Steinexpo show in Homberg, Germany from August 30th to September 2nd. Set in Europe’s biggest basalt quarry, visitors to stand C47 will have the first exclusive look at the new compact suspended permanent magnet.

    Eriez has focused recent developments on producing higher gradient multi-pole magnet blocks coupled with more compact, lighter weight and streamlined self-cleaning arrangements.

    The newly-designed magnet is lighter than a standard Eriez suspended magnet, yet offers comparable performance in achieving the highest levels of metal separation. The slimline, compact design features an internal frame simplifying the belt change process and is ideal for mobile crushers, shredders or screeners.

    Eriez offers a comprehensive range of magnetic separators and metal detectors to remove both ferrous and non-ferrous metals to protect downstream processing equipment and reduce costly damage and downtime.

    For the removal of tramp iron in conveyed material or chutes, Eriez suspended electromagnets have been designed especially for the quarry and mining industries and are most effective when a deeper magnetic field is required. At Steinexpo, a self-cleaning model will be on display for the continuous, automatic removal of tramp iron. They are recommended where a large amount of tramp iron is expected or where there may be limited access to the magnet for cleaning purposes.

    Completing the product line-up at the show is the MetAlarm QM3500 bridge coil metal detector, suitable for use with steel-corded conveyor belts. The dual sensor coil model is ideal for higher material burdens and higher belt speeds. It is able to detect tramp metal above the customer critical metal size only, ignoring smaller pieces and preventing unnecessary stoppages of conveyors.

    Gareth Meese, Sales Director at Eriez Europe, explains: “There have been many developments with the ferrous and non-ferrous metal recovery solutions that we offer in the last few years. Eriez continues to focus on research and product development to ensure that the equipment we offer develops with ever-changing customer and market demands. The equipment on display at Steinexpo this year is testimony to this”.

  5. US investor backs South Wales start-up
    10 April 2017

    FaultCurrent extends the capacity of the existing power grid

    A device which protects power systems from disruption and damage to network infrastructure has won extra funding for commercial development.

    FaultCurrent Ltd uses groundbreaking magnetic technology to allow the existing power grid to cope with excessive fault conditions, brought about by the rapid move towards decentralisation of electricity generation, including the connection of alternative energy sources such as wind and solar.

    Developed as a spin-out from research undertaken at Cardiff University, the device is inactive during normal power flow and only reacts when excessive fault currents are detected, inhibiting the flow to allow the existing power network protection systems to safely isolate the problem.

    Eriez Investments Ltd becomes a shareholder in FaultCurrent, and Eriez Magnetics Europe Limited, who were engaged in the manufacture of FaultCurrent’s full-scale prototype, will manufacture the commercial product under license at its facility in Caerphilly, South Wales.

    ”Eriez Magnetics is excited to become an investor in FaultCurrent,”said Tim Shuttleworth, CEO of US parent Eriez Manufacturing Company Inc. “We have the knowledge and understanding of magnetic materials and processes to support FaultCurrent’s ambitions to grow as a global business.”

    Martin Ansell, Chairman and CEO of FaultCurrent, said: “With help from the UK Government’s Energy Entrepreneurs Fund and our founding investor, IP Group plc, FaultCurrent has already successfully tested a full-scale prototype and now has the investment needed to refine its design into a commercial product, suitable for application on power distribution grids. We are aiming for commercial trials before the end of 2017.”

    Dr Nick Bourne, Head of Commercial Development, Cardiff University, said: “I’m delighted the University has developed such a productive partnership with Eriez Magnetics which will help establish and grow a new high-tech venture in Wales based on our respective strengths and expertise.”

    The patented technology behind FaultCurrent has been developed by magnetic engineering expert Dr Jeremy Hall at Cardiff University’s Wolfson Centre for Magnetics. Dr Hall said: “Our technology can play a major role in managing new demands on ageing and already overburdened electrical infrastructures to allow the connection of cleaner distributed energy sources, which is good news in terms of tackling climate change.”
