TRS Mobile Metal Separation for Recyclers

Published: 22/1, 2020

Recyclers are increasingly using mobile metal separation systems with ferrous and non-ferrous metals being separated on location by such equipment. As a result of more stringent recycling legislation and measures such as banning the export of waste to China or restrictions on the application of certain recycling streams, companies are constantly upgrading their recycling methods.

“That means that sometimes you need to go to places that are hard to reach. And you have to recover the added value locally, in this particular case the non-ferrous metals,” said Jörgen Sassen, general manager of Steelage Czech Republic, an important service provider for the steel industry.

TRS BV Metal Recovery Solutions specializes in equipment to handle these needs. This year, for example, Steelage Czech Republic purchased a Caterpillar mobile eddy current separator with integrated custom-made magnetic separator developed and delivered in consultation with TRS BV.

With this mobile metal separator, Steelage is now extracting additional ferrous and non-ferrous metals from materials which otherwise never would be processed. These flows are released from various recycling processes and are temporarily stored on site and then further processed locally periodically.


Mobile machines

In general, there are many types of mobile separation machines, such as mobile conveyor belts, crushers, shredders, sieves, hand sorting booths, wind shifters, and now various mobile eddy current separators that take care of the total process. To benefit from such equipment, TRS developed a robust, user-friendly machine, suitable for more difficult recycling streams such as incinerator bottom ash. The machine ensures that the incoming recycling flow is first distributed as optimally as possible. The ferrous metal is then separated by a magnetic roller and discharged via a conveyor belt. The material flow is then prepared for separating of non-ferrous metals, which fall directly from the metal discharge side into a container for further processing. The remaining recycling flow is neatly deposited in a pile through a discharge conveyor belt.
