Products on conveyor belts

Plate magnets are used to remove ferrous materials from the material flow on conveyor belts, in free-fall in vertical or inclined pipelines, under cliffs and chutes, etc.

This type of plate magnet is equipped with powerful ceramic magnets that are mounted in such a way that an extra strong, deep magnetic field is formed.
This type of plate magnet is provided with a steel plate on the back with threaded holes for installation. The standard range includes magnets in a variety of sizes - virtually any size can be made to order. To make the cleaning of the flat magnet fast and accurate, they can be supplied with a cleaning sheet which can either be manually or pneumatically driven.

If the magnet is installed in a location that is difficult to reach, the pneumatic tool is most suitable. The pneumatic function fulfills all ISO and CETOP standards.
The main application for the over-belt magnet system is the separation of ferrous metal from material on a conveyor belt. To do this, they are installed across the conveyor. The magnetic system picks up the ferrous particles from the material flow that passes under, and then release them into a collection container when they leave the magnetic field.
The workspace on the magnets are protected by a stainless steel plate that takes up the wear and tear. This type of system for iron separation is often used in industries to prevent iron particles damaging production machines such as mills.

A growing application area is the recycling industry, often in combination with eddy current separators for non-ferrous metals. Our over-belt magnet system comes as two main types, one that uses permanent magnets and the other with electromagnets. The latter for effective field depth of > 500 mm.
This type of iron separation system is equipped with powerful permanent magnets. Standard drive system for over-belt magnets is a drum motor. Over-belt systems are equipped with a belt tensioner and thanks to the convex shape of the drum, the band is self-centering. The band is made of synthetic vulcanized rubber.
The electrical connection complies with standard IP 54 or, if necessary, IP 65 and the power supply is standard 3 x 380 V. Systems are available for other voltages as required.

Some types can be supplied as "stretched" versions. These are a section added as a continuation of the main section. This section produces a change in the magnetic field allowing the iron particles on the belt to move so that any non-iron particles that have been fixed by the iron particles can fall back to the material flow. This means less pollution in iron collection. The "extended" versions can only be installed with the belt running in the same direction as the conveyor belt.
Waste and recycling industry uses other separation systems than those previously described.

This part of the industry is trying to insulate raw materials from other waste in an environmentally sound manner so that metals can be recycled economically. Conventional systems such as the belt system, separation drums have improved in recent years and more functionality has been added. Additionally, several types are equipped with neodymium magnet systems.
Eddy current separators for non-ferrous metals has a special position. We have recently introduced a second generation of eddy current separators for non-ferrous metals. Efficiency has increased dramatically with the introduction of a brand new 18-pole magnetic cylinder.

For many applications the separation
almost reaches 100%.
Recent tests in the glass recycling industry showed, for example, an efficiency of 99.8%.

Magnetic drum separtors contains two sectors - one magnetic, one not. There is a drum that rotates outside these and over in which the material flows or falls. To help with the separation process, the drum is provided with cleats.

The material falling on the magnetic part of the drum and iron particles sticks to the drum due to the magnetic field. They then fall off when the magnetic sector is removed and can then be collected separately.

The illustrations here helps to explain the principle.
The drum is made of stainless steel and features a rotating, and a stationary shaft. The rotating shaft drives the drum, the stationary is used to position the magnetic field. The magnetic field covers 180°.
Bearing block is included. Drum magnets are fitted with permanent ceramic magnet system.
Diameter at 215 and 315 mm can also be equipped with the extra powerful neodymium magnet system.
