Overhead suspension magnets are designed to recover iron and ferrous components from the waste stream. They not only generate clean iron scrap for recycling but also protect crushers, mills and other mining processing equipment against wear and destruction.
An overhead suspension magnet is arranged above a feeding conveyor belt and extracts the ferromagnetic materials from the supply flow against the force of gravity. Self-cleaning magnetic separators have a circulating conveyor belt equipped with projections which removes the ferrous parts attracted by the magnets and allows them to fall into a separate container.
Self-cleaning overhead suspension magnets ensure efficient processes where there is an increased iron proportion in the supply flow.
Overhead and manual overhead suspension magnets are available according to size, application area and ambient conditions as a dry installation with active or passive air cooling or with active or passive oil cooling.
