Tramp Iron Magnets

By Serpent & Dove - Applied Magnetics Pty Ltd

Recover unwanted iron from conveyed products such as coal and mineral ores in order to protect downstream processing equipment like crushers, sizers and screens.  Serpent & Dove supplies permanent magnetic or electromagnetic separators in either manually-cleaned or self-cleaning styles for conveyors of all sizes.

For nearly one hundred years, the Stearns™ brand of magnetic separation and detection equipment has been manufactured and used by thousands of customers worldwide.   Manufactured by Ohio Magnetics, Inc. in Cleveland, Ohio, the Stearns™ range includes electric magnetic drums for auto shredders, electric or permanent over-the-belt magnets, magnetic pulleys, specialized wet and dry magnetic separators and other specialized magnetic products.

Ohio Magnetics, Inc. is recognized as a world leader in the development of lifting magnets systems and magnetic separation equipment for steel production, metal fabrication, scrap, recycling, mining, utility, foundry, waste recovery, textile, paper/pulp and rail industries.

Usually, offending iron is easiest to recover with the magnet positioned over the trajectory of product as it discharges from a conveyor. If, however, this position is not possible, good recovery can be achieved with the magnet across the belt.
