Eriez announces its new recycling test center is now open, giving customers a full-scale laboratory opportunity to test their own materials.
The new test center uses state-of-the-art recycling equipment to determine the most effective solutions for the toughest separation challenges.
The facility is housed in the company’s recently expanded Wager Road plant, located in Erie, Pennsylvania, and has the capability to perform sorting tests on a wide variety of ferrous and nonferrous products.

Testing equipment includes Eriez’ Revx-E eddy current separator, ultra high-frequency eddy current separator, stainless steel separator and several magnetic separators. The recycling test center is also equipped with a metering feeder to regulate feed to individual pieces of equipment and a screen with multiple size fractions to help determine which size is optimal for each process. “With this range of cutting-edge equipment, we can customize testing procedures based on customers’ unique materials and needs,” says Eriez recycling market manager Mike Shattuck.
“When testing concludes, our team of experts provide customers with customized reports and recommendations on equipment mix and placement, as well as supported predictions on expected recovery rates and payback periods,” he adds.
Eriez’ metal recovery equipment, either as individual units or complete systems, is designed for efficient and economical processing of municipal solid waste, comingled recyclables, shredded automobiles, electronic scrap, glass cullet, plastic (PET), foundry sand and many other resource recovery operations. “Our innovative recycling solutions are helping to achieve better recovery at a higher grade and lower cost,” says Shattuck.
