Overhead Magnetic Separators
Industrial magnets, such as overhead magnetic separators, can handle the job if you are looking to protect downstream equipment from tramp metal contamination or separating ferrous recyclables from other products. These large, powerful industrial magnets are suspended over a conveyor system to remove ferrous metal from the product stream. Electro magnets and permanent magnet styles are available to meet the needs of any type of application. These types of industrial magnets have been used in the following industries: recycling, mining / aggregate, foundry, coal, bulk processing and other customized services and applications.
Stationary Overhead Industrial Magnet
If tramp metal is an occasional problem, then a stationary magnetic separator is the right choice. Just suspend it over the conveyor or over the head pulley. When the magnetic surface starts to fill up, swing the overhead magnet away from the conveyor and cut the power (electromagnet) or use the convenient wiper arm (permanent magnet) to release the attracted metal. Swing the separator over the conveyor and you’re back in business.
Self-Cleaning Overhead Industrial Magnets
If you need to separate large quantities of ferrous metal, Dings self-cleaning overhead industrial magnets will do the job. Available in both electro and permanent magnet styles, these powerful magnetic separators come equipped with a tough, vulcanized rubber belt with 1″ cleats to continuously remove metal from the product stream (3″ cleats are available for material recycling facilities. The magnet may be suspended either crossbelt (perpendicular to the product flow) or inline (parallel above the product flow).
Severe or Heavy-Duty Self-Cleaning Overhead Magnets
For demanding applications such as concrete recycling or construction and demolition waste processing, Dings has designed a Severe-Duty Self-Cleaning Magnet. With a stainless steel cleated belt and heavy-duty drive package, this industrial magnet is built to withstand the toughest conditions.
