Suspended Electromagnets

Self Cleaning & Manual Clean Suspended Electromagnets from Eriez

Protect your equipment from damaging tramp metal

Eriez Suspended Electromagnet

The Suspended Electromagnet removes damaging tramp metal from coal, limestone, sand, gravel, municipal waste, wood products, recycled materials, other ores and almost any conveyed nonferrous material.

The electromagnet is typically mounted or suspended over a conveyor belt to remove large pieces of tramp metal that represent a hazard to downstream crushers, mills, pulverizers and grinders. Suspended electromagnets also remove sharp metal that can damage or tear expensive conveyor belts, especially at transfer points.

Product purity is enhanced with the separation power of the suspended electromagnet.

Styles & Models

Manual Clean

Eriez Suspended Electromagnet

All Manual Cleaning (MC) SE-7000 series models are cleaned of accumulated tramp iron by turning off magnet power periodically. MC models are recommended when occasional pieces or small amounts of iron may contaminate material flow. Six models available on 10-Day Quick Ship Program.

Self Cleaning

Self Cleaning (SC) SE-7000 series models provide completely automatic iron removal and can be installed in an “in-line” or “cross belt” position. Both SC models have a short belt conveyor built around the magnet to effect automatic removal of tramp iron from the magnet face.
