Overbelt Magnetic Separators

Overbelt magnetic separators from Multotec are suspended on gantries above a conveyor belt installation to extract ferrous content from conveyed loads before they reach further downstream processing. An automatic belt-driven self-cleaning mechanism then dumps the trappings into collection bins located on the side of the conveyor.

Oil-cooled and air-cooled electromagnets can provide ferrous separation for belt widths up to 2 400 mm with working gaps up to 1 000 mm. Permanent magnets can be installed for belt widths up to 1 800 mm, with working gaps up to 600 mm.

Multotec overbelt magnetic separators feature:

  • Electromagnets and permanent magnets
  • Gantries facilitate easy access for routine maintenance
  • “Cross-belt” or “in-line” arrangement
  • Manual or self-cleaning

Eliminate fans and forced cooling in your processing application with the latest technology from Longi. The Multotec and Longi partnership is bringing ground-breaking air-cooled over belt magnets to the African mining industry.
