Bunting to help solve metal separation problems at Hillhead
Bunting will exhibit at Hillhead 2022. Bunting will exhibit at the 2022 show to help companies solve metal separation and detection challenges.
Bunting began exhibiting at Hillhead as “Master Magnets” in the 1980s. Magnetic separators and industrial metal detectors have evolved since 1982, becoming stronger, lighter and more efficient. Hillhead 2022 provides the platform to showcase the latest metal separation technology, including ElectroMax and ElectroMax Plus overband magnets.
The development of the ElectroMax overband magnet followed user demands for stronger and lighter overband magnets for mobile installations. Compared to permanent overband magnets, the air-cooled ElectroMax overband magnet exhibits an average increase in magnetic power of 185%, combined with a weight reduction of 25%. The ElectroMax-Plus further increases the magnetic power of the ElectroMax by at least 105%. Since the launch of the magnetic separator, the ElectroMax has proven popular with manufacturers and users of mobile equipment, as well as suppliers and operators of static installations.
Metal separation and detection solution
In a quarry or mine, scrap metal causes costly and time-consuming damage to screens, crushers and conveyor belts. At Hillhead, the Bunting team will explain how to avoid such problems by installing appropriate magnetic separators and metal detectors.
Bunting’s line of industrial metal detectors, including the TN77, QDC and QTA models, detect and enable the removal of iron and manganese steel debris (eg non-magnetic shovel teeth). Metal detectors are usually installed with an overband magnet or a pulley magnet to provide the ultimate protection against metal debris.
Metal Salvage with Bunting Hardware
Overband magnets are also used to recover ferrous metals from recycled materials. However, since the first Hillhead in 1982, the eddy current separator has established itself as a good solution to help recover non-ferrous metals. The technology is now widely used in the recycling of household waste, construction, wood, plastics, etc.
The Bunting line of eddy current separators continues to evolve, enabling the separation of large and small non-ferrous metals. Many are mounted on mobile plants for the batch processing of waste stocks.
“Hillhead has always been an important exhibit for us,” says Adrian Coleman, general manager of Bunting-Redditch. “With many exhibitors also being customers, the show provides the perfect platform to meet and discuss projects.”
