POY Finalist: Ballistic separator
Finalist in Material Handling Systems in Plant Engineering’s 2011 Product of the Year competition
Shred1 uses ballistics to efficiently separate iron-rich ferrous from much of the mixed metals and waste material in the post drum magnet flow. This separator delivers three distinct fractions: a premium low-copper ferrous product, a traditional #2 shred, and a heavy/light/waste mix. The Shred1 ballistic separator combined with a P-Rex permanent rare earth magnetic drum improves the entire process. This process recovers more ferrous and concentrates 75% of the post drum magnet flow into a low-copper premium shred, while eliminating the need for other commonly needed separation methods.
