Erie, PA - Demonstrating its commitment for a better, cleaner environment, Eriez® has developed an eco-certification designation for a variety of Eriez Hydroflow® fluid filtration and recycling equipment. The self-certified program was put in place in 2010 and has expanded into other product categories since that time.
The fluid filtration and recycling equipment identified by Eriez for the Eco-Certified designation has met several criteria:
o The products have a positive impact on recycling processes and the recycling industry.
o They are manufactured with energy-savings features, including the use of energy-free permanent magnets.
o All equipment is built in an Eriez facility that focuses on recycling consumables, driving down energy usage and drastically reducing solid landfill waste.
o An electronic, paperless format is used when promoting the selected equipment; when marketed using hard copy, promotional material is printed on recycled paper.
Eriez has incorporated a completely digital workflow, both internally and externally, to reduce its dependence on paper. Customers can now access most product information via the Eriez Web site at www.eriez.com and print only what they need.
The Eriez Hydroflow Eco-Certified fluid filtration equipment includes Star Filters®, Automatic Vacuum Filter Systems, Centrifuge Filter Systems, Cartridge Filter Systems and Compact Filter Systems. Eco-Certified products in the fluid recycling line include the CRS Fluid Recycling Systems, Solids from Liquid Centrifuges, Sump Cleaners, Tramp Oil Separators, Pure Water Treatment Systems, Mechanical Concentrate Mixers and Fluid Recycling Instrumentation.
Eriez' Eco-Certification also extends to the company's high-end recycling equipment, including the ProSort, ProSort II and FinesSort® Metals Recovery Systems as well as Eddy Current Separators. This recycling equipment, either as individual units or complete systems, is designed for the most efficient and economical processing of municipal solid waste, co-mingled recyclables, shredded automobile scrap, electronic scrap, glass cullet, plastic (PET), foundry sand and many other resource recovery operations.
Additionally, Eriez' line of Hi-Vi Electromagnet Feeders are also categorized as Eco-Certified. These feeders, with their totally enclosed patented magnetic drive, can feed practically any bulk material from micron size to bulky chunks. Solid-state controls operate the feeders with 'watch-like' precision while keeping power consumption to a minimum to save energy. Eriez has standard models for the majority of applications, ranging from its Model 6C with feed rate up to 1,600 pounds per hour to the Model 52A with feed rate up to 25 tons per hour.
Eriez is recognized as world authority in advanced technology for magnetic, vibratory and inspection applications. The company's magnetic lift and separation, metal detection, x-ray, materials feeding, screening, conveying and controlling equipment have application in the plastics, process, metalworking, packaging, recycling, rubber, mining, aggregate and textile industries. Eriez manufactures and markets these products through 12 international facilities located on six continents. For more information, call toll-free (888) 300-ERIEZ (3743) within the U.S. and Canada.
