Automotive Shredder Residue (ASR)
Reviewing its production from end-of-life vehicles (ELVs)
About 75 percent of an automobile can be recycled. The remaining 25 percent is a combination of metals and shredder waste known as automotive shredder residue (ASR) or auto fluff. ASR consists of a wide variety of materials, including plastics, glass, rubber, wood, foam, tramp metal, wire, fibers, sand and dirt. Automobile recycling produces about five million tons of ASR every year, and nearly all of this residue ends up in landfills.
EJET`S sensor sorter was being widely used to separate residual metals from waste flows such as ASR or other residue like shredded electronics. Often working after eddy current separator for left stainless steel and insolation wire recovery.
Magnetic particles are attracted by the drum magnet, whereas nonmagnetic particles follow their flight path determined by inertia and gravity. The attracted material is conveyed by the drum shell to the end of the magnetic field and dropped to the other side of an adjustable splitter.
Permanent Overband Magnets are designed with a continuously running belt to tramp and automatically remove ferrous metal from conveyed material
As a usually cylindrical or conical revolving screen , used in a variety of applications for screening or sizing such as ASR or other residue like MSW and recovery of valuable minerals from raw rock, ore, or coal.
