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…

Bunting Magnetics Pull Test Kit

A Magnetic Separator attracts, captures and holds magnetic particles.  The magnetic strength needed to successfully separate such problematic ferrous metal contamination is commonly stated in a magnetic separator supplier’s quotation or specified in the tender.  This ‘Magnetic Strength’ is usually referenced in terms of ‘Gauss’, a unit of measurement.  However, as it is difficult to accurately measure…
