Eddy Current Aluminum Separation Conveyor

Specifications | Safety Features

Separation Conveyor - Remcon

Separation Conveyor - Remcon

The REMCON EDDY CURRENT SEPARATION CONVEYOR utilizes rare earth magnets, specially arranged inside the conveyor head pulley, to remove both aluminum and ferrous materials from commingled recyclables. Aluminum is repelled into a chute ahead of the pulley,  ferrous is attracted back to a chute behind the pulley, and other materials are dropped straight down into a third chute.

REMCON Eddy Current Side Elevation View

::Back to Top::



Overall Width – 66” (with 30” rotor) Overall Length – 137”


Dodge SXR pillow block with eccentric locking collar for better grip on shaft.


3/8” thick flat bar slat construction, slider style with sealed belt edges for reduced belt wear and safety. Slat bed construction decreases friction and drag from moisture on the belt and prevents abrasive debris from accumulating underneath the belt.


Polyurethane -- provides the greatest strength with the least thickness, to avoid dampening the effect of the eddy current. The belt connection and sidewalls are permanently hot bonded at the factory.

Belt Cleats

2” tall, 18” spacing, high Radio Frequency welded to top surface of belt to move product efficiently thereby reducing belt wear.

Belt Edge Seal

A 2” tall PVC side wall is hot air welded to the surface of the belt and steel skirting hangs over belt sidewall to prevent glass and metal debris from working under the belt edge and causing premature belt wear.

Belt Speed

200 feet per minute fixed speed.

Eddy Current Rotor (Conveyor Head Pulley)

Rotor Construction – Contains high grade rare-earth permanent magnets that are balanced for low vibration and long life. 

Rotor Shell – A replaceable fiberglass wear drum covers and protects the inner rotor and supports the conveyor belt.

Rotor Width  Extra wide rotor design positions bearings out of the magnetic field and keeps the product away from the edges of the belt to prolong belt and rotor life.


Formed 3/8” plate steel dampens vibrations with guarded access holes.

Gear Reducer

Dodge TXT 125, parallel gear, shaft mounted, meets American Gear Manufacturers Association class 2 rating.


Splitter included to separate metallic stream from non-metallic stream.


Custom built to support Eddy Current Separator.

Motor, Conveyor

TECO-Westinghouse 3/4 HP, severe duty, TEFC, 1.15 service factor.

Motor, Rotor

TECO-Westinghouse 10 H.P., severe duty, TEFC, 1.15 service factor, class F insulation for long motor life class F insulation for long motor life.

Pulley, Tail

14” diameter, driven by a shaft-mount gear reducer and conveyor motor, crowned for belt tracking.

Belt Take-up

REMCON conveyors are equipped with extra long belt take up devices which allow more than enough adjustment for the maximum amount of guaranteed belt stretch.


Emergency Stop System

Cable-pull switch with cable and rigging as required by OSHA.


All drive components guarded with hinged covers.

  REMCON conveyors are all built from common components which are widely distributed and available throughout the USA.
