Overband and suspension magnets are a highly efficient way of extracting iron and iron-bearing components from bulk materials. They recover clean iron scrap for recycling, and protect your processing equipment, including mills and grinders. Suspension magnets can also remove unwanted tramp iron such as screws, nuts, and rock bolts from coke, coal and ore. Suspended above conveyor belts, they attract magnetic parts by pulling them out of the material flow. The extracted iron is then carried out of the magnetic field using carrier bars and then discharged. Pure suspension magnets are typically electromagnetic and are used for lower iron content parts and wider belts greater than 2m.
Overband and suspension magnets are well known for their extremely powerful magnetic fields. Multipolar magnet systems and neodymium-iron-boron magnets enhance separation performance and efficiency. Meanwhile, the weight of permanent suspension magnets can be significantly reduced. Permanent suspension magnets are commonly used in mobile treatment plants. They are periodically moved sideways and switched off to allow the iron to fall into designated containers. These types of magnetic separators are suitable for coal loaders with capacities of up to 7000 t/h.
