Expanded Eriez 5-Star Service Center Repairs and Upgrades Wet Drum Separators to Maintain Magnetic Strength

Erie, PA — Eriez’ 5-Star Service®Center, recently re-located to the company’s new 114,000 square foot Wager Road facility in Erie, PA, expertly restores older Wet Drum Separators to their previous magnetic strength. The Eriez®5-Star Service Center is staffed with trained service technicians to handle even the toughest service projects.

There are two distinct applications for Wet Drum Magnetic Separators: recovery of magnetite or ferrosilicon in a heavy media process, and the concentration and recovery of magnetite from iron ore. Over time in use in harsh industrial environments, Wet Drum Separators can lose their magnetic efficiency. However, with proper maintenance, they can be restored to as-new performance.

The Eriez 5-Star comprehensive maintenance program for Wet Drum Separators includes:

  • Inspection of shell, hubs, bearings and shaft end
  • Removal of hubs to inspect the magnetic element for damage
  • Upgrading of magnetic element and replacement of shell, if necessary
  • Testing the Wet Drum Separator and shipping it back to the customer

“Proper maintenance can effectively limit costly downtime,” says Jim Lasko, Eriez 5-Star Service Center Manager. “Our team is ready to do whatever it takes to get customers’ Wet Drum Magnetic Separators back up and running quickly.”

Eriez 5-Star Service utilizes original OEM parts, remanufactures equipment to original specifications and offers “as new” warranties. Eriez also stores several years of equipment records to help expedite servicing.

“Because sending equipment to the Eriez 5-Star Service Center is not always a feasible option, our service technicians are also available for in-house repairs and routine maintenance checks," says Dave Hansen, Eriez Customer Service Manager. “We are happy to bring Eriez 5-Star service to you, even on short notice.”

Besides Wet Drum Separators, the 5-Star Service Center upgrades and maintains other Eriez equipment, including Eddy Currents, Suspended Electromagnets, Scrap Drums, Vibratory Feeders, Lift Magnets and Metal Detectors. Eriez’ 5-Star Service offers Instruction and Operation Manuals (IOMs) on the above equipment, parts lists and step-by-step troubleshooting procedures.
