Whether you’re looking to protect downstream equipment from tramp iron contamination or separating ferrous recyclables from other product, Dings overhead magnetic separators can handle the job. Dings Overhead Magnetic Separators are suspended over a conveyor line to remove ferrous metal from the product streamElectro and permanent magnet styles are available to meet the needs of any application.
Stationary Overhead Magnets
If tramp metal is an occasional problem, then a stationary magnet is the right choice. Just suspend it over the conveyor or over the head pulley. When the magnet surface starts to fill up, swing the magnet away from the conveyor and cut the power (electromagnet) or use the convenient wiper arm (permanent magnet) to release the attracted metal. Swing the magnet over the conveyor and you’re back in business.
Self-Cleaning Overhead Magnets
If you need to separate large quantities of ferrous metal, Dings self-cleaning magnets will do the job. Available in both electro and permanent magnet styles, these powerful separators come equipped with a tough, vulcanized rubber belt with 1″ cleats to continuously remove metal from the product stream (3″ cleats are available for material recycling facilities. The magnet may be suspended either crossbelt (perpendicular to the product flow) or inline (parallel above the product flow.
For demanding applications such as concrete recycling or construction and demolition waste processing, Dings has designed a Severe-Duty Self-Cleaning Magnet. With a stainless steel cleated belt and heavy-duty drive package, this magnet is built to withstand the toughest conditions.
