Puritan Magnetics' Suspended Belt Magnets are designed for suspension above a belt conveyor and are engineered to remove ferrous contaminants from high volume deep burdens. As product passes under the magnet, metal contaminants are drawn out of the material to the face of the magnet. This style of magnet should be installed at the discharge of the head pulley if possible. Material will be flowing more freely and can be thrown into the face of the magnet increasing the separation results over an installation that has the magnet suspended over a troughed belt. This can be supplied with a wiper arm or stripper plate to simplify cleaning. For automated continuous cleaning, a POW-R CLEAN option can be selected which incorporates a set of pulleys, belt, motor, and reducer that travels around the Suspended Belt Magnet discharging metal contaminants automatically. Suspended Belt Magnets can be installed in an in-line or cross belt configuration and are commonly used in such industries as:
feed & grain, concrete recycling, mining operations, municipal recycling, scrap yards, and other recycling and bulk processing industries.
