Eriez powerful Magnetic Pulleys are used to automatically separate heavy tramp iron and fine iron contaminants from conveyor transported materials.
When material contaminated with tramp iron is presented to the Magnetic Pulley, the iron is attracted to the belt surface. The cleaned, non-magnetic material is discharged over the pulley as normal, whilst the iron is held by the pulley and discharged below the normal trajectory.
A divider arrangement is usually installed which can be adjustable to permit optimum positioning for specific conditions of material and tramp iron discharge.
The main features are:
• Powerful uniform magnetic field over the pulley surface.
• Robust (fully welded).
• Suitable for large and small tramp iron removal.
• Suitable for variable belt speeds and burden depths.
• Easily installed or retrofitted.
