Increasingly stringent standards for recycled organic waste products such as compost and mulch have driven demand for innovative separation solutions. While many products exist for ferrous metals separation, non-ferrous separators have largely been confined to stationary applications like materials recovery facilities. Komptech has responded with a mobile solution that combines ferrous and non-ferrous metal separation: the Komptech Metalfex.
Designed for conveyor feed, the Metalfex has a typical overband ferrous separator. It removes non-ferrous metals using an eddy current separator with eccentric pole system, discharging the metals and the cleaned fraction via two folding conveyors to the left and right of the machine. Like many of Komptech’s hybrid power units, the Metalfex’s components are electrically powered, either from the on-board diesel generator or from the grid. It is available in compact hooklift, easily manoeuvrable two-axle trailer or mobile site chassis versions.
The Metalfex can be used with shredded waste wood and bulk waste, industrial and commercial waste, household waste, mixed construction waste and shredder output. With its tough, powerful design, it can take input grain sizes up to 300 millimetres in an extremely wide range of materials.
The first Metalfex arrives in Australia later in 2019. ELB Equipment, Komptech’s distributor in Australia & New Zealand, is currently booking demonstrations.
