Overband Magnets

These companies manufacture and supply overband magnets for use within the recycling and quarrying industries.

Primarily involved in the separation of materials early in the production process overband magnets protect the crusher and in the recycling industry separate out any metals in the feed. Overband Magnets can be positioned either inline over a conveyor head pulley or across a conveyor belt.

Two Poles or One Pole, that is the Overband Magnet Question
The Overband Magnet is one of the most commonly used Magnetic Separators in the world. Suspended over conveyor belts, the Overband Magnet magnetically attracts, and then lifts separates ferrous metal from non-metallic material. It is that simple. Or is it?

The vast majority of Overband Magnets in use today are designed with a single magnetic pole.

However, an Overband Magnet with a twin or double magnetic pole enables enhanced separation across the whole width of a conveyor and is better for separating long sharp ferrous metals like nails.

Bunting has installed Twin Pole Overband Magnets in a wide variety of quarrying, aggregate and recycling plants. The enhanced separation improves the protection of processing equipment such as Cone Crushers whilst also enabling enhanced separation and recovery of steel such as UBCs.
And, to answer the Shakespeare inspired question, yes two poles are better than one.
