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 30 to September 2. Set in Europe’s biggest basalt quarry, visitors to the Eriez stand will have the first exclusive look at a 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”.
