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
