Magnetic pulleys and conveyor pulleys
The Master Magnets pulley separators and magnetic conveyor pulleys are an easy, reliable solution for the continuous extraction of ferrous metals from a product stream. Magnetic pulley separators are installed as a replacement head pulley at the discharge end of a conveyor. A non magnetic adjustable diverter plate is installed beneath the pulley to split the ferrous material away from the non-ferrous materials in the product stream.
As non-metallic materials free-fall at their normal trajectory, the 360 degree magnet system ensures that the ferrous materials are discharged behind the centre line of the pulley (see below).
The Master Magnets magnetic head pulley magnets are custom built and are available in a wide range of diameters and face widths. The pulley sizes will be recommended based on customer’s installation or application.
The Mastermag range of permanent pulley magnets and magnetic conveyor pulleys are manufactured using ferrite materials. Rare earth materials can be used when particular applications require removal of finer iron particles. The pulley magnet can also be supplied as an electro magnetic unit for an even better level of extraction. Master Magnets advise each and every customer on the most cost-effective type of unit to suit their particular application.
In addition to supplying pulleys, Master Magnets can also supply a complete separator system with conveyors for clients that do not already have a conveyor system on their site.
