Dings Stationary Overhead Electromagnets

Dings Stationary Overhead Electromagnets

Dings Stationary Overhead Electromagnets are the right choice when separation of tramp metal is an occasional problem. Simply suspend this low-volume separator over a conveyor or head pulley. When the magnet surface starts to fill up, swing the magnet away from the conveyor and cut the power to release the attracted metal.

Dings Stationary Overhead Electromagnets are  ideal for mining, recycling, tire shredding, power generation, construction and demolition, and pulp and paper operations. This “manual clean” magnet is best suited for applications with a lower volume of ferrous metal in the product flow. The ability to turn off the magnet makes removing the collected metal easy for the operator. For higher volume applications, consider a self-cleaning electromagnet.

Stationary Overhead Electromagnets protect vital processing equipment from ferrous metal damage, improve product purity and quality, and reduce product liability.
