Eriez Introduces a Line of SMART Products Designed To Maximize Metals Recovery And Separation Efficiency
Eriez proudly introduces a new line of SMART (System Monitoring and Reporting Technology) products for the recycling industry. These advanced products were developed to monitor and report on frequently fluctuating measurements throughout typical recycling processes, giving operators greater control over their processes to maximize metals recovery and separation efficiency.
The SMART products line for recycling currently includes the Metal Loss Monitor (MLM) as well as the new Moisture Monitor and Splitter Monitor.
The MLM continuously scans the residue stream for metal that has escaped the process and is headed for landfill disposal. It is engineered for installation on flat or trough conveyor belts for the tailing or fluff stream and is available in nearly any belt width and standard conveyor configurations. The MLM has a counter that can be reset hourly, daily or even for each disposal truck load. The Data Acquisition and Reporting package offers endless possibilities for process improvements using trend analysis and statistical process control.
The Moisture Monitor is a non-contact electronic scanning device that measures the water content of material passing through its inspection field. When installed on a conveyor, it reports the moisture content of the material on the belt as a percentage that can be read locally or remotely via the Eriez MLM web portal. This capability is particularly beneficial to the recycling industry because operators can better optimize the amount of water injected into the mill to prevent fires and control airborne dust generation.
The Splitter Monitor is an optical system that measures debris build-up on the critical leading edge of splitter blades used in many different types of separation equipment in the recycling industry. It provides an analog measurement of the amount of this detrimental build-up and can be programmed through the Eriez MLM web portal to send warning alerts via email or cell phone text messages to prompt the appropriate personnel to clean the splitter blade.
