Overband Magnets

Bunting Magnetics Europe Ltd offer a range of Magnetic Overband Separation Conveyors manufactured in the UK to the very highest standards offering world class performance along with cost effective separation solutions. Our Overband Separation Conveyors are used extensively throughout the recycling industry in the UK and beyond.

Exceptional Metal Removal Performance

The Bunting Magnetics Cross Belt Separator range of Twin Pole Overband Magnets offers.

  • 450mm Reach available in both our Standard and Stainless Steel bodied units
  • Neodymium High Intensity units designed for E Scrap Ferrous Metal Separation
  • Twin Pole Design to ensure maximum magnetic performance and aid belt life
  • Designed to last, with high quality construction and components, world class magnetic performance and fit for purpose
  • Optional End Guards, Chutes, Support Frames and configurable mounting points are available

The Twin Pole design is very effective at removing ferrous metal and the unique magnetic design means that metal is attracted to the belt in a way that minimises belt damage, therefore minimising maintenance and down time. Bunting Magnetics Europe designs and manufactures its Overband Magnets at its Word Class Facility in the UK, using in-house: CAD, CNC and Fabrication Equipment. This ensures that Bunting Magnetics Cross Belt Separators are the most respected in the industry in terms of separation performance and durability. Common size units are typically ex-stock.

Magnetic Conveyor Separators, Cross Belt Separators or Suspended / Suspension Magnets

Overband Magnets from Bunting are sometimes also referred to as either Magnetic Conveyor Separators, Cross Belt Separators or Suspended / Suspension Magnets. The word ‘suspended’ perhaps provides the biggest clue as to their function within an application.

Specifically designed to be suspended over a conveyor belt and continuously collect and separate ferrous metals from non-ferrous metals as well as other materials that are non-magnetic. Removing the ferrous metals at this stage of the process, helps to preserve and protect equipment somewhere further down the production line. Although they can be used in other industries, they are most commonly found operating in businesses related to quarrying or aggregates.

Overband magnets feature a powerful magnetic block. A conveyor belt on two pulleys then rotates around this magnetic block which allows metal to be collected up and off the conveyor belt underneath and then dispersed elsewhere, away from the main product flow. The end result is continuous metal separation at low maintenance. To protect the conveyor belt from tearing as any tramp metal passes along its length, there are UHMW (ultra-high-molecular-weight-polyethylene) wings extending over the edge of the belt. This also ensures that materials don’t get caught up and trapped under the belt.

Installation of overband or suspended magnetics can be installed in a couple of different ways. The first option is to mount them in line with, but at the discharge end of the conveyor belt. Depending on the application and product line, they can also be mounted across the belt. If you are looking for something that will work with things like mobile crushers or wood and debris crushing machinery, then there is also a lightweight model available and is ideal for these applications.

The kind of overband magnet required will be very much determined by the type of product that needs to be conveyed and will take into consideration things like suspension height and burden height. Suspended magnets can also be combined with other magnetic separators to enhance the separation process even further – you could also use an eddy current separator. Please contact us if you need more information about any of the magnetic separation solutions that might be suitable for your industry.
