Shredder Light Fraction – Fines Upgrading
A fines separation and upgrading system was added after the final SLF discharge conveyor on an existing shredder downstream.
A trommel was utilised to separate the 0-20mm fraction from the total material stream.
The fines fraction was processed through a Steinert FinesMaster unit incorporating a rotary drum magnet, belted head drum magnet and fines eddy current separator to provide four separate products:
- High grade ferrous
- Low grade ferrous / magnetic dirt fraction
- Mixed non-ferrous metals
- Residual fines light fraction
All separated fractions were chuted into product bays under the support structure. The >20mm oversize fraction from the trommel was transferred via conveyors to a stockpile.
