Press release date: July 20, 2011

Erie, Pa.- Eriez®, a leading manufacturer to the recycling industry, announces that Chihuahua, Mexico-based Kalischatarra, S. de RL de CV has purchased two Eriez P-Rex® Permanent Rare Earth Drum Magnets to replace two-year-old competitor drums.

"This order is a testament to the superiority of P-Rex technology, considering the existing electro-axial drums were not burned-out, but were simply not performing well," says Tim Shuttleworth, Eriez President and CEO.

"Current electro-axial drums are still designed using a 20-year-old technology," explains Mike Shattuck, Eriez Heavy Industry Project Manager. "Electro-axial drums are limited and have several inherit shortcomings when compared to Eriez' P-Rex Permanent Rare Earth Drum Magnets."

Electro-axial drums VS. P-Rex Permanent Rare Earth Drum Magnets
While electro-axial drums provide only one "flip" for cleaning, powerful P-Rex delivers three or more "flips." Electro-axial drums suffer significant strength loss after start-up, up to 40 percent! Since P-Rex has no electrical resistance, there is no measurable loss of strength. The inferior design of electro-axial drums results in extremely weak wide areas along the outside edges. In contrast, P-Rex easily captures ferrous material from edge-to-edge due to its wider working zone.

"In short, P-Rex outperforms electro-axial drums in every measure," explains Shattuck. "P-Rex's sophisticated performance translates into one to two percent more recovery, providing cash flow ROI to justify installation," he says. "Another critical cost-saving advantage of P-Rex is the drum's ability to capture bothersome knuckles and meatballs, preventing them from being missed into the non-ferrous stream where they damage separation equipment and ignite fluff fires." Samuel Kalisch of Kalischatarra reports that the recently purchased P-Rex Drums are performing exceptionally well. He says, "We noticed improved recovery right away when we placed the first P-Rex Drum into service, so we went ahead and ordered the second as well. With the multiple flipping action, we get a cleaner frag product as well as better recovery."
