Bunting Magnetics Europe Ltd has manufactured and supplied a complete Metal Separation Module and Metal Separator to Recapture Plastics to cleanse recycled plastic of metal. The Metal Separation Module consists of a large Vibratory Feeder that delivers material onto a strong Magnetic Drum before passing over an Eddy Current Separator.
Bunting Magnetics Europe Ltd, a leading Magnetic Separator manufacturer based in the UK, worked closely with Recapture Plastics to provide a range of metal separation equipment that would ensure a metal-free final product.
Recapture Plastics developed and built the new plastics recycling plant in Rochester, Kent. The plant is designed to handle up to 25 tph infeed of recycled plastic material with a view to future expansion. Plastic is sourced from across the UK, mostly in baled form, and the operation is one of a few recycling plants with the ability to process and separate the materials effectively. Additional information on the process is available from Bunting.
Neale Buttery, Recapture’s Operation Manager, explained the reason behind selecting Bunting equipment:
“We have worked with Carlton [Hicks – Bunting’s UK Sales Manager] before and knew that he understood what we were looking for. This whole operation depends on producing metal free, clean plastic and we felt that the Bunting equipment would make sure we achieved that goal.”
Simon Ayling, Bunting Europe’s Managing Director added: “The successful installation and operation of any Magnetic Separation or Metal Detection equipment is down the supplier and user working together. Neale and Roger [Evans] were very clear in explaining what they wanted and that helped us select the best equipment. Carlton’s experience in the recycling industry was invaluable in ensuring we met their expectations.”
Bunting Magnetics manufactures and supplies a wide range of Metal Separators for the recycling industry including Magnetic Separators, Eddy Current Separators, and Metal Detectors. The company will be exhibiting at both Waste 16 (Salford, UK 9th June 2016) and RWM (NEC, Birmingham 13-15 September 2016).
