Electromagnetic Separation

Brute force electromagnetic separation of ferrous metals from conveyed materials

Suspended Electromagnets

Suspended Electromagnetic Separators provide powerful magnetic protection from tramp metal contamination in large operations such as Mining, Pulp Mills, Mineral Processing, Sawmills, Biomass, Recycling and Aggregate.

Defend equipment such as crushers, grinders, chippers, mulchers, presses, hogs, and hammermills from hazardous tramp metal damage while providing a metal free product.

Capture Tramp Metal from Conveyed Material

Electromagnetic separators are best suited for applications with:

  • Deep Burden Depths
  • Heavy Bulk Densities
  • High belt speed
  • Entrapped tramp metal within conveyed product
  • Extraction of large tramp metal such as bucket teeth

Self cleaning magnets are particularly suited for heavy tramp volume as the cross belt configuration continuously cleans the magnet face.

  • Self Cleaning – self contained belt removes tramp from magnets surface
  • Easily retrofitted, Simple installation – permanent magnet requires no electricity
  • Constant power – permanent magnet requires no electricity
  • Low maintenance – avoid shutdowns and unplanned events

Cross Belt Separators are used in the magnetic separation of ferrous materials from products to ensure a safe, metal free output. These powerful magnets are usually installed above conveyor belts, and draw the unwanted metals upwards and away from the conveyor belt to allow for uncontaminated production.
