Overband Magnetic Separators For Aluminium Scrap Recycling

Overband Magnetic Separators are designed with the objective to eliminate metal from the main product line, generally carried by conveyor belt or vibratory feeders.Overbands are mainly used not only to protect machine such as crushers and shredders but also to remove ferrous particles and purify products.

Jaykrishna Magnetics Pvt. Ltd. manufactures overband magnetic separators that are renowned in aluminium scrap recycling world as they are the most effective units for purifying a product stream, typically in applications of recycling and quarrying industries. They can be positioned either inline over the head pulley or across a conveyor belt as per the requirement. Due to its high magnetic strength, the overband is able to work at an increased operating gap, enabling it to extract aluminium scrap from deep troughed conveyors.

Our overband magnetic separators are self-cleaning, so that no manual cleaning is required and downtime for the end user is reduced to a minimum.

Overband Magnetic Separators

Operation/Working Principle

Overband magnetic separators are placed in-line with over the head pulley or across a conveyor belt. The aluminium scrap  particles are drawn out of the raw material flow and automatically and continuously separated into a chamber.

Overband magnetic separators are made with two different U-section pieces that are set with bearings. Strontium ferrite is used to make magnets in order to offer powerful magnetic gradient. The magnetic pole is covered with non magnetic plate which contains electric motor and geared motor. Due to the separator’s effective performance to eliminate aluminium scrap particle, it is used in various kinds of industries.
