Overband magnets

The Overband Magnet is one of the most commonly used magnetic separators.  Different designs are used in nearly all process industries and especially in mining, quarrying, recycling, and bulk handling applications. In operation, an Overband Magnet (or Suspension Magnet) sits above a conveyor carrying material.  As the material passes under the magnet, ferrous metal is…

Chute Magnet Separator Checks Magnetic Susceptibility

The Chute Magnet Separator or Magnetic Slide is a simple but important laboratory-scale wet magnetic separator for any material test facility.  This magnetic test equipment enables the assessment of a particle’s magnetic susceptibility, which provides the platform for further tests on specific wet magnetic separators. Wet magnetic separation techniques are employed when processing slurries (i.e.…

Bunting In Line Magnet

A UK processor of Potassium Chloride is using two Pneumatic Inline Magnets (PIMS) to capture and remove small tramp ferrous metal. The metal is removed early in the process, as the dry material is being pneumatically conveyed, to prevent damage to processing equipment including the crusher. The two PIMS installed at the Potassium Chloride processing…

Bunting ElectroMax Overband Magnet

The design objective of creating a more compact and powerful electromagnetic Overband Magnet led the Bunting engineering team to develop the new ElectroMax-Plus. Electro Overband Magnets Electromagnetic Overband Magnets use an oil-cooled or air-cooled wire coil to generate a deep and strong magnetic field.  The electromagnetic force radiates from a coil wound around a steel…

Ceramic Tiles

When fine iron and iron-bearing minerals contaminate the raw material used to produce ceramic tiles, the consequences are costly. Such iron contamination causes visual and structural defects as well as affecting the surface finish in terms of brightness and whiteness.  Tiles failing final quality checks are commonly returned for recycling. Those passing the initial quality…

Eddy Current Separator

Recycling plants around the world rely on Eddy Current Separators to separate and recover non-ferrous metals.  The technology utilises high strength magnetic forces to repel and eject non-ferrous metals in many different forms including aluminium beverage cans, car frag, and foils. The large UK-based metal recycler, the Bird Group, developed the world’s first Eddy Current…
