Sicon EcoScan Online

Sicon, Hilchenbach, Germany, has introduced the EcoScan Online, which is designed to provide reliable analysis of shredded scrap chemical parameters as well as its bulk weight so steel mills can determine the optimum input amount of this material. The technology:

  • is an automated online system that detects the chemical composition of shredded scrap
  • can be combined with Sicon’s ScrapTuning technology, which removes impurities detected by the EcoScan Online
  • can be implemented in an existing plant network

Goudsmit Magnetics Conveyor Feed System

Goudsmit Magnetics, Netherlands, has developed its conveyor feed system to prevent clogging of the vibratory chute during the recycling process. The system:

  • creates a monolayer of material to improve separation efficiency
  • features three conveyor belts each with its own task to ensure the continuous flow to the next processing step
  • removes ferrous metals during the second step so they do not interfere with the final eddy current separation step
  • is designed to achieve ferrous and nonferrous separation without time-consuming machine downtime for cleaning
