Can Sorter Machine Aluminum can sorter devices are an effective way of removing non-ferrous metals from other products. Application such as aluminum cans from municipal waste, aluminum flakes from shredded pet, brass and aluminum from foundry sands and metals from shredded automobile scrap, other metals such as lead can also be removed. For successful non-ferrous separation, a magnet should be installed prior to an aluminium can sorter. non-ferrous separators usually have variable rotor and belt speed adjustments which can be set to suit your application but with a 'can sorter' aluminium can sorter, these variables are already pre-set for optimum can separation, making sure that you are definitely getting the most out of your machine. As aluminium or steel cans are so big and lightweight, the process of separating them is relatively simple compared to typical aluminium can sorter application demands. For this reason, the 'can sorter' is a much smaller machine with a smaller rotor, making it a much cheaper and cost-effective machine for companies with can sorting applications.
