Recovery of fine NF metal particles

(A)SR fines (< approx. 12 mm) account for 20-40% of the weight of all shredder residues. They contain high amounts of recyclable metal, in addition to significant quantities of non-metal materials. Often, the earning potential of the (A)SR fines is underrated. The FinesTuning system from SICON reliably recovers over 99% of NF metals that can be separated from the fines. The multiple-stage magnetic separation system, which consists of two magnetic drums with different magnetic field strengths and a multi-pole overbelt magnetic separator and an eddy current separator and a downstream sensor-based sorting process, ensures a complete recovery of metal. An efficient system that pays for itself in no time at all with the lucrative sale of metal and lower disposal costs.

SICON install its FinesTuning unit both in new systems and in existing systems with throughputs of up to 30 t/hr.

A FinesTuning unit usually pays for itself within 9 to 21 months, depending on the throughput rate.

Your benefits at a glance

  • Treatment system for fines from lightweight and heavy shredder fractions and (A)SR fractions
  • Multiple-stage process for complete separation with considerably higher purity of the separated metals
  • Multi-pole overbelt magnetic separator for additional cleaning of FE fractions produces a clean and marketable FE fraction
  • Throughput of 2 to 30 t/hr
  • Compact system that requires little space
  • Turnkey delivery
  • Quick return on investment (ROI)
  • Optional extension by additional metal processing stages, e.g. copper separation from the recovered Zorba fraction
