Storch Magnetics' New Heavy-Duty Permanent Sweeper Magnet Cleans Up Ferrous Materials Quickly and Efficiently

Storch Magnetics introduces a new Magnetic Road Sweeper using either a permanent magnet or electromagnet for vehicle mounted applications such as a forklift or skid-steer to sweep industrial or commercial floors, worksites, roadways, construction sites or any area where ferrous materials need removal. These sweepers are an efficient and effect way to easily remove hazardous metal debris.
Sweepers are available in various magnetic strengths from standard to high intensity in both permanent and electromagnetic technologies.

Storch heavy-duty Magnetic Road Sweepers are available in 4 ft., 5 ft., 6 ft., 7 ft., and 8 ft. width models. The magnet for each model is the length of the unit by 10 inches wide and 3 inches in depth. It can easily sweep ferrous scrap from small to large bolts, nuts, shavings, chips, hammers C-clamps, shrapnel and any other types of ferrous hazardous materials to prevent personal injuries and reduce liability.
Each has a convenient release lever mounted on the side, and is engineered for a three-inch sweeping height with higher sweeping heights available. Sweepers are also available with a battery-operated hydraulic release that's conveniently activated by the vehicle driver.

Storch Magnetics also offers a series of high-powered electromagnetic sweepers that use an on-board gas or diesel generator for skid steer and fork lifts. These units have a convenient on/off switch activated by the fork-lift operator. A nice feature with this system is that the generator that operates the electromagnet can also power hand tools.

Storch can build or retrofit a sweeper to just about any type of vehicle including snowplows, trucks, Hi-Los, Bobcats, tractors, or utility vehicles.

Compared to other competitors' standard units, they are a much more rugged unit and built for long service life.
