hamos HS - Metal separators free fall

Electronic all-metal separators for the detection and removal of metallic impurities

hamos HS electronic all-metal separators are used for the detection and fully automatic removal of isolated metallic contaminants from free-falling, free-flowing bulk materials. Not only ferrous metals are detected, but also all non-ferrous metals, such as aluminum, copper, brass, etc. The result is a practically metal-free bulk material. The result is a practically metal-free product. hamos HS all-metal separators protect products, machines and tools safely, reliably and cost-effectively from damage caused by metal contamination.

Operating principle

The free-flowing bulk material falls in free fall through the shaft of the hamos HS all-metal separator.

A high-frequency alternating field is generated inside an electromagnetic coil, which is influenced by metal particles flying through it. Each metal particle, when it falls through the coil opening, triggers a pulse. In this way, any metal particles above a certain size that may be contained are detected electronically by the metal detection coil and separated and ejected from the material flow fully automatically via a pneumatically operated diverter.

Professionals work with professionals

After 21 years of operation, our experience with the hamos WRS window recycling plant is very positive. The plant is an important part of our process. It helps us to achieve our targets. It guarantees the highest quality required for the PVC and thus increases the overall performance of our process. The hamos plant is indispensable and "closes our recycling loop."

- Bodo Streubel, Operations Manager of Dekura Bad Schmiedeberg

We are very satisfied with the standard hamos GmbH has achieved. Previously, it was not possible to sort PVC from profile sections and production remnants fully automatically to this high standard of quality and purity. This development has helped us to completely close the material loop in window profile production. A new world-class standard was born.

- Jörg Ipfling, Manager Recycling Technology Window Solutions at Rehau

The electrostatic recycling systems of HAMOS make a very important contribution to the recycling process of PVC windows due to their good separation performance.

- ppa. S. Lengnick, Production Management, VEKA Umwelttechnik GmbH

The separation systems supplied by hamos are an essential part of ensuring the highest quality of products supplied by Metal-Plast to the market. By using hamos solutions we have increased the processing capacity of our plant and the products manufactured by Metal-Plast are of the highest quality.
