Suspended Plate Magnets are useful across many industries for clearing contaminants from production lines. These most powerful magnets are typically installed above belt magnet systems but can also be used at the discharge point as well. Usually designed using ceramic or rare earth magnets, they have the capacity to pull even minute particles from the belt flow. Depending on the depth and size of the chute, as well as the type of product being processed, customized suspended plate magnets can be designed in differing sizes and strengths to accommodate the needs of individual applications. Suspended plate magnets offer exceptional efficiency since they require no energy consumption and as such, will not fail in the case of power fluctuations or shut off. They are also easy to maintain and clean since they have no moving parts. Metal is either collected and trapped before being discharged through a hopper system or is removed using a slide mechanism on the trap.
Suspended Plate Magnets are used to extract tramp metal during processing by suspending above the conveyor belt system. These powerful magnets extract fine particles of ferrous materials, improving the end product while also extending the life of processing equipment.
