Magnet Sales Australia have become the Australian distributors of a range of high intensity overbelt self cleaning magnetic separators for the extraction of ferrous pieces and contamination from mined substances such as coal, recycled waste and other conveyed products.
The overbelt magnet is placed at right angles or at the trajectory of the product. Ferrous metal pieces are then collected on the overbelt magnet and cleaned automatically by the moving belt on the surface of the magnetic separator.
Overbelt magnetic separators are an essential piece of equipment to avoid plant damage caused by metal pieces getting into crushers, extruders and compactors. In addition to preventing damage, overbelt magnetic separators and eddy current separators can upgrade and purify products to increase their value and profitability.
Overbelt magnets can be used on trough conveyor belts, flat conveyor belts, slow moving conveyor belts, fast moving conveyor belts and inclining/declining conveyor belts. Overbelt magnets can also be situated at the discharge of vibro feeders.
Overbelt magnetic separators are available in two types, electro magnetic and permanent magnetic. The advantages of a permanent magnetic overband separator are that maintenance costs are low and they do not require an electric current for generation of magnetic field.
The electro magnetic over belt separator is effective for extraction of large pieces of ferrous metal from large materials encountered in underground coal mines.
Along with Overbelt Magnetic separators, Magnet sales Australia is also the exclusive distributor in Australia and New Zealand for a range of high quality Italian built eddy current separators for effective extraction many of non ferrous materials from product. The eddy current separator will also extract ferrous metal at the same time using the magnetic pulley at the head of the eddy current separator housing.
