For the separation of clean wire from contaminated tyre wire. Most tyre shredding and separating applications produce a tyre wire fraction which is contaminated to some extent with rubber and/or fibre. This makes the product less valuable and at times even difficult to dispose of without cost.
Existing magnetic separation equipment tends to attract wire which also has attachments. This is acceptable for some processes but tyre wire needs to be as clean as possible to achieve its maximum value. Therefore we have developed the CWS to release wire with rubber attachments and free rubber / fibre to provide a significantly cleaner wire product.
Depending on the shredding process, there will be a combination of material grades produced: from the required Clean Rubber and Clean Wire to the contaminants Rubber with Wire and Wire with Rubber (see photos).
We recommend that the CWS is presented with the contaminated wire directly from your existing primary ferrous separator (usually an overband or drum magnet) to prevent the wire becoming tangled and more difficult to separate. The Hi-Flux CWS assists in loosening tangled wire and then presents it to the separator. The separator is far more selective than conventional magnetic separators and this allows the majority of contaminants to be separated from the cleaned wire.
It is then recommended that the drops from the CWS are reprocessed to reduce or prevent any waste.
