Conveyor belt magnets or so-called overhead magnets are powerful magnets that are used to remove ferrous materials such as iron and steel from conveyor belts. They are a critical component in many manufacturing and recycling processes.
We manufacture overhead magnets and plate separators in-house in our workshop in Bromma. You can see our entire selection here! You can also special order your own designed separator from us. Contact us to get the best possible help.
How conveyor belt magnets work
Conveyor belt magnets use powerful magnets to create a magnetic field that attracts ferrous material. The conveyor belt passes over the magnet and as it does so the magnetic field pulls the ferrous materials towards the magnet.
Overband magnets and separator magnets are built in a way that pushes out the magnet barrel as far as possible. This is because they must reach even the smallest pieces of iron/steel on the conveyor belt.
Once the ferrous materials are attracted by the magnet, they are separated from the other materials on the conveyor belt. This enables efficient separation of ferrous materials from non-ferrous materials, which is essential in many manufacturing and recycling processes.
Use of conveyor belt magnets
Conveyor belt magnets are used in many industries, including:
* Recycling: Conveyor belt magnets are used to separate ferrous materials from non-ferrous materials in recycling processes.
* Mining: Conveyor belt magnets are used in mining to remove ferrous material from conveyor belts.
* Manufacturing: Conveyor belt magnets are used in manufacturing processes to separate ferrous materials from non-ferrous materials.
* Food processing: Conveyor belt magnets are used in food processing to remove any ferrous material that may have contaminated the food.
Conveyor belt magnets are a critical component in many manufacturing and recycling processes. They are easy to install, require little maintenance and are very effective in separating ferrous from non-ferrous materials.
