High-recovery of valuable non-ferrous metals

Recovering high volumes of non-ferrous metals from dry recyclables represents a significant amount of money for metal recycling and processing plants. It also saves on rising costs associated with waste disposal – reducing landfill volumes and helping to protect the environment.

BlakerTech manufactures products for the metal recycling industry. Designed to be simple and robust, the MagThro eddy current system and SandFlo fluidised-bed separator have been tried and tested in busy commercial environments.


A robust eddy current separator designed to meet the rigorous demands of the metal and waste recycling industries.

  • Made from high-grade components
  • Fitted with 12 pole magnet shafts
  • Neodymium rare earth magnets generate a strong magnetic force to efficiently separate non-ferrous metals from other non-ferrous mixed materials
  • A fully-adjustable eccentric rotor is set up to maximise the magnetic force to increase recovery rates
  • Options of a two or three-way splitter to suit client requirements
  • Robust framework allows walkways to be attached and hinged panels enable quick access for routine maintenance
  • A range of belt widths include 300, 500, 750, 1000, 1250 and 1500mm
  • Main belt is fully adjustable and can be replaced without disturbing the ECS rotor
  • BlakerTech holds a full stock of accessories: rotors, drums, hoppers, shakers, splitters, conveyors, drum magnets and eddy currents
  • An environmentally-friendly, dry process with no contaminated effluent to treat


A low-cost and efficient fluidised-bed separator that sorts secondary metals and minerals according to their density. SandFlo is ideal for the recovery of aluminium, zinc, copper, brass fractions from mixed non-ferrous metals in processing plants.

  • Cost-effective, high recovery performance
  • An environmentally-friendly, dry process with no contaminated effluent to treat
  • A proven commercial solution for upgrading non-ferrous fragmented scrap
  • Sand can be cleaned and reused
  • Requiring a single operator, the SandFlo can recover 2 – 2.5 tonnes of material per hour
  • By saving costs on manual pickers, SandFlo typically pays for itself within 18 months

The MagThro and SandFlo are handmade in the UK at BlakerTech’s manufacturing facility in the South East of England. They also provide full installation, training and support.
