Eriez, a world authority in advanced technology for magnetic, vibratory and inspection applications, recently unveiled the EP-Rex Scrap Drum -- a new, hybrid scrap drum offering many of the same benefits as the popular Eriez P-Rex Scrap Drum at a lower cost.
The electro-permanent EP-Rex Scrap Drum offers greater strength than traditional electro-axial drums, bringing improved profits to scrap recycling operations. Large sphere-shaped ferrous, often referred to as meatballs or knuckles, are no match for the incredibly powerful EP-Rex Scrap Drum.
Much like the P-Rex, the EP-Rex offers advantages in critical performance areas: superior edge-to-edge separation, no ‘transfer point’ drop in magnetic force, and no decline in performance due to heat rise.
“Eriez is setting a new standard in scrap drums,” says Darrell Milton, Eriez’s metals recycling market manager. “Processors’ profits are no longer limited by inferior metal recovery systems. Eriez drums provide better performance and payback than ever before thought possible.”
Mike Ross, Eriez’s magnet development manager, explains that EP-Rex was invented based on customer need and current market conditions.
“P-Rex opened users’ eyes to the realization that a stronger and consistent strength drum provides better recovery than the traditional electro-axial drums,” he says. “Then, with the recent volatility in rare earth minerals pricing, our customers requested a stronger magnet that did not require rare earth magnets as an option. With a lot of research and the help of computer finite element analysis, robotics, numeric-controlled machines and laser-guided coil winding, EP-Rex was developed.”
