POY Finalist: Ballistic separator

Finalist in Material Handling Systems in Plant Engineering’s 2011 Product of the Year competition
By Edited by Gust Gianos, Plant Engineering November 1, 2011

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.
