Eriez PokerSort Metal Separator
The innovative PokerSort helps alleviate issues caused by long rod-like pieces typically over 24 inches in length, commonly referred to as pokers, that can damage downstream equipment in automobile and other metal scrap operations.
Utilizing a special magnetic drum positioned at the end of the shredder discharge belt, Eriez’ innovative PokerSort separates pokers as they catapult off the end of the belt with a different trajectory than the rest of the shredded material or “frag.”
Eriez’ PokerSort extracts long, troublesome pokers like automotive leaf springs, tie rods, steering and axle components and other generally uncooperative long shapes directly from the shred before reaching the drum magnets. As pokers exit the shredder, alignment guides on the incline conveyor position poker-type objects parallel in the flow. As pokers reach the end of the conveyor, they extend beyond the conveyor and are magnetically pulled over the PokerSort, into a chute or conveyor belt and collect in a bin or bunker. Belt-driven PokerSorts are 18-inches in diameter and available in a range of sizes from 36 to 96-inches wide.
