It is a compact and user-friendly device. The visually and technically integrated cover of the machine is designed with regard to the comfort and safety of the operator, simple assembly and service. Elements for easy handling and installation are another advantage. The controls of the vibrating feeder, rotor and splitter are readily accessible. Watch a video that will bring you closer to its features and benefits.
The LOCUST functions on the basis of eddy currents. The core of the machine is a magnetic rotor made from very strong neodymium magnets, which is eccentrically located inside a nonmagnetic drum. All conductive particles, which pass through the magnetic field formed by the rotor, are magnetized for a short time in order to rebound from a material flow as a consequence of repulsive forces. The rotor is adjustable in different angles relative to the drum. It makes it possible to regulate the landing place of discarded particles. Efficiency of separation depends on the splitter being set correctly according to the type and volume of treated material.
We deliver the LOCUST in a modular configuration with easy integration into a variety of recycling lines and plants.
The LOCUST is available in three standard sizes with the possibility of alterations according to special customer requirements. All parts can be readjusted and retrofitted with suitable accessories, for example with suction, PLC control, ATEX modification and others.
