Today’s waste streams more than often contain metals, these can be recovered to obtain a cash value, to enhance overall separation quality and minimise material to landfill; and also protect valuable equipment in waste separation processes by removing ferrous and non ferrous metals that could cause damage and downtime.

Enhancing further separation capability, our HogMag Separator is the latest addition to the Ecohog range, a mobile Eddy Current magnetic separator with integrated vibrating pan, magnetic drum and stockpiling conveyors.

Construction Waste

In this application, Ecohog Windshifters are used to protect shredders by removing all heavy product e.g. stainless steel, brick, ceramics etc. The clean product can be used or go on for further processing depending on the fuel application.

Oversize / Undersize Compost

The Ecohog Windshifter can provide the solution to cleaning up oversized compost by separating contaminants, stone and wood from compost oversize. The cleaned wood can also move on to shredding for use as biomass.

MRF Glass

Ecohog Windshifters and HogMag Eddy Current Separators can be used in many parts of the Mixed Dry Recyclables processing cycle, for example separating: glass from paper, plastic from paper, paper from cardboard and metals from any MRF products.

Ecohog Windshifters are typically used in conjunction with different types of screens to efficiently separate different fraction sizes. The HogMag Eddy Current Separator can be used to recover the valuable metals in this process.

Scrap Metal

Ecohog Windshifter technology is used in plastics recovery systems to reduce and eliminate non plastics contaminates and in some cases unwanted plastics.

Incinerator Ash

In Incinerator Ash Clean up, Ecohog Windshifters are used in conjunction with screening equipment; the screen removes the fines fraction and the oversize is fed to the Ecohog and light fraction is then separated from the heavy. The heavy material is typically made up of metals and aggregate that can then be further separated with ease. These materials then go to the HogMag for removal of ferrous and nonferrous metals. The remaining product can be sent for further processing.

Recyclable Wood (Biomass)

The HogMag is used in this scenario to remove the metals. Ferrous and Non-ferrous metals must be removed prior to burning as the metal swill damages the grates in the burner causing downtime and associated costs. Higher quality recycled woodchip is required for biomass fuel.
