16.07.2018 Vibratory screen improves scrap metal quality

German-based interVIB GmbH, with headquarters in Mörlen, reports that it has recently delivered several of its Type VSL linear vibratory screeners, equipped with specially developed 3D-screening cassettes, to steel plants and scrapyards throughout Europe. Their function is to improve scrap metal quality, either provided from shears or shredders, by removing fines, magnetic dust and non-ferrous material. Capacities from 40 up to 300t/h can be achieved depending on the screen dimensions.

A key element is the screening surface which is fabricated from extra strong manganese steel. It is built as cassettes which can be easily exchanged and ensure a service life of over 18 months without any appreciable wear. Mainly 2-3 cassettes are inserted with cascades in-between, causing the scrap to rotate. This ensures that fines which have collected on top of hollow or large parts will also be separated. The robust main body of the screening machine and the position of the unbalanced motors ensure that unexpected heavy parts or short-term misuse cannot harm the equipment.

Each complete turnkey installation involves a collaboration between three European companies: interVIB builds the vibratory equipment to the customer’s requirements; Coreso sarl from France is the specialist in magnetic separation and scrap metal treatment; and Pro Tehno d.o.o. from Slovenia carries out the general engineering, final assembly, electrics and controls as well as being a scrap metal treatment specialist. In addition the three partners have built a semi-mobile device owned by Coreso which is available to hire out to customers, on the one hand for testing the quality of purchased scrap metal, and on the other hand for testing the effectiveness of the equipment before ordering a purpose-built installation.
