SINCE introducing the revolutionary Shred1™ Ballistic Separator in 2011, Eriez® has successfully installed units in various shredding yards, steel mills and slag processing facilities throughout Europe and North America.
Other than a few minor modifications made to the design of the unit since its release, the Shred1 has proven itself to be the reliable and effective choice for scrap processors. Those who are looking to differentiate themselves with a premium ferrous shred whilst demanding a higher value per unit weight, have found the Shred1 to be an invaluable part of their process line.
The Shred1 separator produces a premium low-copper shred using ballistics to effectively separate iron-rich ferrous from much of the mixed metals and waste material in the post-magnetic drum flow phase of scrap processing lines.
The powerful separator delivers three distinct fractions, the first being a high-value, low-copper-content ferrous product. This valuable shred represents more than 70% of the flow and contains less than 0.2% of copper.
The second fraction represents less than 20% of the flow and contains mostly mixed metals, copper and aluminium with steel housings or cores. Hand sorting of this fraction can be achieved with relatively few pickers.
The final low-volume fraction, representing less than 7% of the flow, consists of heavy steel objects and light material such as fluff, rubber and some wire. This fraction can also be easily picked or sorted.
When the Shred1 Ballistic Separator is combined with an Eriez P-Rex® Permanent Rare Earth Magnetic Drum, the entire process is improved further. This system, referred to as the CleanStream™ Process, recovers more ferrous metals and concentrates 75% of the post-drum magnet flow into a low-copper premium shred. It also eliminates the need for a scavenger magnet, a Z-box air system and hand-picking the entire flow, ultimately increasing revenue and reducing overhead for scrap processors worldwide.
