Magnets are an essential part of mining and quarrying operations. Tramp iron is the term applied to unwanted chains, plates, wires, nuts, bolts, rods and similar steel items used in conveyors and crushing and grinding equipment. Tramp iron can inflict serious damage that costs miners and processors millions of dollars every year.
Serpent & Dove , with many years of experience in applying magnets to tramp iron problems, have been appointed representatives for Longji Magnet Company for the Australian coal industry, with non exclusive access to other mining and process industries.
Longji’s permanent self-cleaning magnets have also been recently used for determining the correct strength and size of magnets to recover grinding balls from conveyed ore.
