In many cases, it is not uncommon for an Eddy Current Separator to pay for itself within the first six months of operation. In an attempt to improve the practicality of the Eddy Cur- rent Separator, particularly for recycling sites that stockpile a large amount of their feed materials, Master Magnets ECS systems are now available as a mobile tracked machine. "We wanted to bring a mobile Eddy Current Separator to market that was not only superior in manufacturing qual- ity to anything else on the market, but could also still be cost-effective for the end user," said Master Magnets General Manager Adrian Coleman. "Working closely with the highly reputable Steelweld Fabrications Ltd. has enabled us to pro- duce a machine that is everything we had hoped for in terms of design, ease of use and durability." The MasterTrax incorporates a 1500-mm wide Master Mag- nets ECS with a Rare Earth Drum Magnet for the removal of fine ferrous metals. Other features include: • Vibratory feeder. •  Three integrated inclined discharge conveyors with hydraulic folding. • 65-Kw Generator (can also be powered via mains supply). •  On-board working lights and an air compressor for cleaning. "As a company that specializes in the hire of large plant and equipment, we need machines that we are confident our cli- ents can rely on," said Rob Symons, owner of CRJ Services and user of the new MasterTrax. "Having purchased Master Magnets Eddy Current Separators in the past, we knew that we can trust in the quality of their manufacture and service, however the demand from our clients for a mobile ECS unit was increasing all the time. We worked closely with Master Magnets on the design brief for the ECS, before teaming up with Steelweld to turn our vision into a fully operational pro- duction machine. We were very keen to purchase the first MasterTrax unit and we now have two in our fleet." Master Magnets, Superior Industries Inc. completed manufacturing of its first Razerlink Mobile Conveyor – a multi-functional machine designed to load, unload, transfer and/or stockpile material. According to Superior engineers, by combining mobility with telescoping conveyor technology the Razerlink Mobile Con- veyor limits downtime and accelerates material handling. Additionally, one time handling of material aids in maintain- ing high quality material spec. Each unit is tailor-made to the exact conditions of the custom- er's operation, whether it be a barge, rail, quarry, mining or construction site application. Mobility options include con- veyor tracks, drive tires or towable tires. For applications not requiring telescoping capabilities, the Razerlink Mobile Conveyor can be fitted with a fixed length, radial or luffing conveyor. The unit's feed design can come in the form of a drive over ramp, back up ramp or feed hopper, which accommodates most loading styles. The units are built in 48-in. (1,219-mm) or 72-in. (1,828- mm) wide models and can transfer material at rates up to 1,500 tph.
