Electromagnetic overband separator

with very strong and deep magnetic field

IFE electromagnetic overband separators are used to separate ferrous impurities from any kind of bulk material. They are used to recover magnetic particles from slag, household or industrial waste, foundry sand etc. and are utilized to protect crushers, belt conveyors, screens or grinders from metallic tramp particles. When a large volume of tramp iron is expected, a self-cleaning type separator will be more economical than a simple suspended magnet which is sufficient for small quantities.
Most beneficial are electromagnetic overband separators, when strong magnetic fields are needed or arrangement of equipment only allows for high clearence distances.

ATEX-design (explosion proof)

All electromagnetic overband separators are available in ATEX-design. The separator is equipped with an antistatic extraction belt with rubber cleats for this type of application. Proper operation is maintained with a speed sensor; the temperature of the magnetic is surveyed with a thermistor allowing for switch-off in case of unsafe conditions. This prevents ignition due to high surface temperatures.

Permanentmagnetic extension

Sometimes arrangement of equipment requires wider extraction distances. This can be achieved by a permanentmagnetic extension, widening the magnetic field and shifting the extraction point of the magnetic. This type of extension allows for optimal arrangement of the splitter.

External oil cooling

The heat generated during operation of an electromagnetic overband separator is dissipated to the environment. Using an external oil cooling system improves the efficiency of the separator and allows for operation with ambient temperatures exceeding 40 °C.
