A 120-inch-wide stainless steel separator manufactured in the USA is now available from Wendt/SSE. The equipment is designed to recover metals that may currently be heading to the landfill in the post-shredder stream, including stainless steel, copper windings and insulated and bare copper wire. The SSE machine is designed to pick up where eddy current separators leave off, Wendt says. Wendt/SSE has sold more than 70 separators worldwide to the scrap recycling industry, according to the company. Wendt Corp., Tonawanda, NY, is the exclusive North American distributor for the technology created by Separation Systems Engineering GmbH (SSE), based in Wedel, Germany. Product development of the technology will remain in Germany, where the company has more than 250 separators worldwide operating in a variety of industries.Wendt is designing and fabricating the SSE separators at its Tonawanda facility. The company says features common to its eddy current product line will now be incorporated into the SSE sorters, including adjustability of operating parameters to maximize recovery; one-piece belt replacement; âScrap Dutyâ? construction; and low maintenance requirements.
