Industrial areas of utilization of the magnetic separators situated above belt conveyors
Separators situated above conveyors with an automatic cleaning are suitable on places where transportation using conveyor belts prevail, and where the material characteristics does not enable using another magnetic separation method.
- Municipality waste assortment
- Recycling and processing of derivative raw materials
- Other industrial areas where easily permeable materials are processed
As a partially limiting factor of using this separator situated above belt conveyors, maximum conveyor belt speed may be considered. The speed should not exceed 1.5 m/s. In case the speed is higher, do not hesitate to contact us.
Utilization areas in the industrial operations
1. Separation aimed at a processing technology protection
As the main assumption of using this separator situated above a conveyor, a higher content of ferromagnetic impurities in the transported material must be considered. However, in respect to the characteristics of this separation method, we do not recommend using it in a protection against machine and device damaging in a technological string of a transported raw material processing, e.g. mills, crushers, sorters, etc.
2. Separation aimed at a product cleanliness:
In this case, the aim is achieving of the maximum product cleanliness, when no other separation technique may be employed. Usually, this process runs in the beginning (pretreatment), or in the end (final cleaning) of the manufacturing process. According to the separated material characteristics, its quantity and technical conditions, we choose the magnet with one or two poles. Also the magnet position against the conveyor belt, with the material to be separated, affects the magnet structural solution.
In case there is a thick layer of the separated material, or its permeability is not compromised, we recommend completing the belt conveyor with a magnetic driving cylinder providing also a separation from the lower material layers.
