Ecohog are a family owned equipment manufacturer located in Co Tyrone, Northern Ireland, the capital of engineering. Operating in a global scale we have over 20 years’ experience supplying equipment to the waste and recycling sector. Through extensive market research, research and development and concept design in finding solutions to waste sorting problems we have developed the Ecohog Windshifter and Metal Recovery Ranges some of the most efficient separation technology in today’s market.

The Ecohog Product Range has been designed for both mobile and static installations incorporating low energy consumption, low noise levels, and low dust emissions whilst meeting the latest law regulations and promoting the environment at a more affordable price. We pride ourselves, that using our extensive experience and knowledge of the industry, each Ecohog unit is custom tailored to accommodate the customer’s specific needs and process requirements.

If Landfill costs and labour costs are eating into your profits then contact Ecohog today and find out how we can help put your profits into your pocket!


The HogMag Eddy current separator introduces the use of a powerful magnetic field to separate non-ferrous metals from waste post removal of all ferrous metals which are removed by a magnet arrangement. The eddy currents within the HogMag are circular electric currents induced within conductors by a changing magnetic field in the conductor. Eddy currents flow in closed loops within conductors, in planes perpendicular to the magnetic field warranting the desired separation.


To ensure a controlled and evenly distributed level of material enters the unit, the HogMag Eddy Current Separator is equipped with a vibrating feeder pan. This helps avoid blockages in the machines whilst assists in directing the ferrous from the magnetic drum to the metal ferrous conveyor and the non-ferrous metals to the eddy current separator.

The removal of the ferrous metals prior to the eddy current separator is vital in keeping wear and tear and overall downtime of the machine to a minimum as ferrous metals in particular steel can cause damage to the eddy current separator. The reason being ferrous metals heat up quickly and are retained against the rotating drum causing damage.

The remaining material, ferrous metal free then enters the high speed magnetic rotor inside the HogMag Eddy Current Separator where a strong magnetic field causes the non-ferrous metals to be propelled in a slightly different direction than the metal free material on the belt, warranting a clean separation.


To benefit the customer and the environment the HogMag Eddy Current Separator is fitted with energy saving motors. The energy saving motors has a lower slip than standard motors which generates a higher level of speed being achieved and ultimately increases productivity, reduces maintenance and operation costs and improves overall operations as these motors are more robust and reliable.

The added benefit of the unit being mobile creates flexibility for ease of movement from location to location. The unique design to the unit means it can be easily integrated with existing systems.


The HogMag Eddy Current Separator has been designed to provide high quality levels of recovered ferrous and non-ferrous metals from a wide range of applications.
