Eriez® Introduces the Revolutionary, Profitable and Space-Saving EcoTowerSort(TM)

Erie, Pa. - Eriez® has combined magnetic separation and metal sorting technology with the introduction of the state-of-the-art EcoTowerSort(TM). The compact machine enables total recovery of valuable metals at a lower overall investment cost.

EcoTowerSort can be used for the sorting of aluminum, stainless steel, copper cables and heavy fractions. It even recovers stainless steel and plastic coated wires.
Different modular sorting technologies are utilized within the EcoTowerSort system. Common configurations include rare earth drum separators, eddy current separators, inductive sensor sorter, or combinations of these different technologies.

The vertical stacked design saves space by eliminating numerous conveyor and feeder systems, making it easy to integrate it into an existing plant. More decks can be added as needed. Top to bottom, a typical EcoTowerSort configuration consists of a Rare Earth Drum Magnet, Eddy Current Separator, ProSort Metal Sorter and Inductive Sensor Air Sorter.

Input material is sorted on-line into several output streams, preventing a repeated material input and ensuring suitable material distribution. With EcoTowerSort, the distribution of material is optimized at each sorting step.

The EcoTowerSort can be customized to fit customers' requirements and preferences. At the metal sensor stages, material can be ejected either by the use of air or via an airless mechanical paddle system.

Machines are available in widths of 24 inch to 118 inch. Customers select bottom or top blowing designs.

The EcoTowerSort is low maintenance and has low air consumption. Overall costs are lower and customers see a return on investment quickly. The sale of recovered metals can pay the investment cost in a short time.
