New Overband Magnet from Bunting Magnetics

Bunting Magnetics is offering a new low-profile electro overband magnet, which was launched at Bauma 2019.

The new product, called the ‘ElectroMax’, is 185 percent stronger than equivalent permanent overband magnets and 25 percent lighter, the provider explained. It “is ideally suited for any application where there are weight and size suspension limitations. Traditionally, mobile plants such as screens and crushers use permanent overband magnets for tramp metal removal. For more difficult tramp metal separation applications, additional magnetic power is required”.

The ElectroMax would provide this boosted separation force whilst remaining compact and light – two important features for any mobile plant. “The ElectroMax electromagnetic coil produces a high gradient magnetic field that, for one specific model, is up to 250 percent more powerful than its equivalent permanent overband magnet”, Bunting Magnetics, one of the leading manufacturers of magnetic separators and metal detectors, quarrying and mining industries, underlined. This would enable the removal and separation of smaller and more challenging shapes of iron contaminants. “The additional magnetic strength also aids the lifting and removal of heavier tramp ferrous metals.”

As reported, there are four models in the ElectroMax range. These are designed for suspension at a height of 450 millimeters over conveyors with widths of 1, 1.2, 1.4 and 1.5 meters.
