ProSort II Airless Metal Recovery Systems Improve Ferrous Recovery and Operate at a Fraction of the Cost of Air-Driven Metal Sorters

Erie, PA, Nov. 6, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Innovative ProSort II Airless Metal Recovery Systems from Eriez® improve metal recovery from waste streams and require 75 less energy than air-powered metal sorters. These economical units take metal recovery to a higher level, providing better recovery of heavies and lights.

ProSort II

While the original ProSort Metal Recovery System is ideal for many applications, the ProSort II doubles the number of metal sensors found on the original ProSort machine and positions them on one-inch centers. These high resolution sensors are aligned with a new inverted paddle mechanism to improve recovery of valuable metals. This new arrangement improves large and small metallic recovery while producing a "cleaner" fraction.

The ProSort II Airless Metal Recovery System offers simple, trouble-free operation. Its modular construction allows easy access to replaceable sensors and paddles. Each component of six paddles and twelve sensors operate from independent power supplies for straightforward troubleshooting and diagnostics. Six packs are hung in a series to create widths up to 90-inches.

Mike Shattuck, Market Manager-Metals Recycling, explains that these systems offer countless advantages over air-driven units. He says, "With ProSort II Airless Metal Recovery Systems, there are no dryers, filters, drain valves or expensive compressors required. Plus, hassles associated with valves becoming stuck open and nozzles getting blocked or clogged are eliminated." He continues, "All of this results in less downtime and increased productivity and profits."
