Eddy Current Separators

For optimal non-ferrous metal recovery or material purification.

These extremely powerful IMRO machines are mainly used for processing household waste, ASR material, white goods, wood, plastic, glass, slag and IBA, as well as electronic scrap. IMRO Maschinenbau is a leading manufacturer of high-performance eddy current separators for achieving optimal results in recovering non-ferrous metals or purifying the material. More than 25 years of experience in separation technology has been delivering maximum productivity for our customers. The modular RCSX system series comprises five machines designed for five different applications that are integrated into a single system. Many special features can be designed for each machine, guaranteeing customized machine solutions.

We manufacture Eddy Current Separators with different types of rotors. Stronger magnets and lower pole changing frequencies are used for coarser particles than for those used to recycle material comprising finer particles. Optimal machine applications can be engineered with any combination of number and arrangement of neodymium magnets and pole system rotational speed.

MRO RCSX C, RCSX D, RCSX D NEO, RCSX F and RCSX JUNIOR: The IMRO range of eddy current separators, as well as their numerous iterations, boast ideal parts for the most diverse separation tasks. All of these separators feature an ideal combination of solid, well thought-out design and maximum performance.

Up to 40% more output – IMRO-Cascading separation

Cascading separator for IBA - the highest possible output of non-ferrous metals

The cascade non-ferrous metals recovery system can be configured in different ways, including the processing of the waste of the first unit (to increase recovery) or on the product of the first unit (to increase metal quality). Optionally, the use of a Neodynium head pulley magnet allows for the recovery and removal of ferrous metals and can be installed upstream of the cascade.

Sophisticated IMRO technology for easy operation and maintenance: An integrated telescopic extension unit makes changing belts during operation extremely easy and fast, resulting in significant savings.

We are your specialist for fine fractions: Maximum added value through IMRO cascading separation - a convincing combination of high-quality and robust technology for significantly increasing the productivity of IBA recycling.

The truth about IMRO Eddy current separators

IMRO Eddy current separators combine all-important features to achieve reliable and efficient separation of non-ferrous metals:

IMRO RCSX F eccentric rotor high tech advantages:


• 44 poles comprising the strongest magnet material.

Ultra large diameter on inductor pole drum.


• Highest magnetic strength • Frequency 1.4 kHz.

Ferrous parts do not become attracted to areas extending beyond the magnetic field/zone.

Other manufacturers use:

• 38 or fewer magnetic poles.

• Smaller magnetic pole drum diameters.

To prevent ferrous particles from melting the belt and the drum shell, other manufacturers use concentric rotors which can include a drum shell containing a ceramic-based lining. This type of drum shell greatly reduces both magnetic strength and separation power by increasing the gap between the material flow and the magnets.

Ferrous particles are attracted to and pulled along with the pole drum. As a result, this causes high wear and tear to the drum shell.

In the IMRO eccentric rotor system, the trajectory is enhanced by adjusting the effective range of the magnetic pole drum between 0 and 20 degrees.

The infinitely variable pole drum is set between 0 to 20 degrees during operation, optimising separation performance of the machine significantly.

In a concentric rotor, non-ferrous particles are attracted by the magnetic field far too early in the process, preventing optimal separation.

Here neither the effective range of the magnetic field, nor the trajectory of the non-ferrous particles can be influenced in such a system. Particularly for the separation of copper wires and heavy metals the capability of adjusting the effective magnetic range is required.

IMRO Patent: The pole drum is infinitely adjustable between 0 and 20 degrees during operation. Optionally, an electronic control device for adjusting for the IMRO magnet system, as well as the separating vertex, can also be delivered.
