Overbelt magnetic separators are suspended on gantries above a conveyor belt installation to extract ferrous content from conveyed loads before they reach further downstream processing. An automatic belt-driven self-cleaning mechanism then dumps the trappings into collection bins located on the side of the conveyor.
Overbelt Magnetic Separator delivers precise and efficient sorting of ferrous metals from inert materials (glass, coal, plastic, paper, wood, garbage, fertilizers, etc.) and non-ferrous metals (aluminium, stainless steel, copper, brass).
These separators are designed to capture tramp metal from both shallow or deep burden depths and are ideal for almost any application – wet, dry, fine, or coarse. As plants continue to increase in size to take advantage of economies of scale, the force cooled electromagnets have been engineered to achieve better performance at a smaller size than traditional magnets.
