Eriez® Offers New Literature Spotlighting FinesSort® Fines Metal Recovery System

Press release date: March 28, 2012

Erie, Pa. - Eriez® is offering a new brochure featuring the company's cutting edge FinesSort® Fines Metal Recovery System (MRS). The brochure is available from the company in both PDF and hard copy format. The literature describes how Eriez' new FinesSort MRS uses powerful magnetic components to recover valuable ferrous and nonferrous metals less than one-inch in diameter from the fines waste stream in automotive shredder yards. This system not only reduces the amount of waste destined for landfill, but reclaims thousands of valuable pounds of metals per day. The four-page, full-color brochure features a detailed cutaway drawing as well as a flow chart that illustrates FinesSort's multi-stage separation process. Accompanying text describes FinesSort's separation process in detail and explains that the system can easily pay for itself within months of start-up. According to the brochure, smaller sized materials or "fines", which have passed through the initial screening process and are often discarded and sent to landfills, represent roughly 20 percent of the original total flow. Within the fines, generally less than five percent is recyclable metal, depending on the mix of product being scrapped. Although five percent of the fines or just one percent of the total stream might seem insignificant, reclaiming these valuable metals can be worth tens of thousands of dollars annually. In addition to the standard FinesSort MRS, the literature also highlights the FinesSort Jr MRS. It explains that FinesSort Jr is an entry level machine for fines nonferrous recovery. Unlike FinesSort, the Jr model only captures nonferrous materials under one-inch coming from the trommel screen.
