Magnetic pulley MV

A magnetic pulley (sometimes called also a magnetic roller) is a device for automatic and permanent removal of magnetic iron metals from inert materials. 

The key part of the machine consists of a set of ferrite or neodymium NdFeB magnets and of an external drum from stainless steel that revolves on a shaft together with the magnetic cores. The magnetic pulley is usually an integral part of a belt conveyor (unlike the magnetic drum). 

The ferromagnetic pieces (transported on the conveyor belt) are captured by the strong permanent magnets and dragged on the surface of the pulley beyond the magnetic axis of the drum where they fall off (already before that the non-magnetic particles fall off due to gravity). The magnetic field of the pulley is about 100 mm high, so it is advisable that the layer of the substance on the band should not be higher than 80 mm. In case of a high layer of the transported stuff we recommend to combine the use of the magnetic pulley with the application of our overband separator or our magnetic plate.

The magnetic pulley is easy to install and maintain, the materials used for its production  (stainless steel, set of permanent ferrite or neo magnets) as well as its robust design provide for a long-term solution to separation problems.The application of ferrite magnets arranges for nearly unlimited working life, however, if you need higher magnetic force we recommend that the drum is fitted with extremely powerful neodymium NdFeB magnets from rare earth ores (especially in case of the separation of small ferromagnetic particles from materials of worse bulk properties).
The permanent magnet systems simplify the separation of ferrous particles, allowing for automatic recovery without production stoppage. At the same time the magnetic roller protects the subsequent machinery (e. g., shredders, mills, grinders) from breakage. The magnetic pulleys find use in recycling and mining as well as in wood and plastic industries.

Extra value added

Magnetic force (induction) generated by the extremely strong permanent magnets from rare earth ores does not let through any unwanted ferromagnetic impurities – and that is why the application options of our products are nearly unlimited (they find their use in chemical, plastic, automotive, building and pharmaceutical industries, food processing, mining etc.).

Our company goal is not only to manufacture and deliver a product, but above all to find and offer an exact solution satisfying the requirements and needs of just YOUR company. In these days of rapid changes in technology it is very difficult to keep up with the latest trends even in the field of your own activity, not to mention other industrial or foreign branches. And that is why we offer you our technical support based on our know-how and our experience. We hope that you - as well as our present clients - will also appreciate our assistance with solving problems regarding the separation of magnetic particles from your products, that we will help to protect your expensive machinery and that our solutions will make your production process even more fluent. If you are looking for a solution of a problem with separation or detection of ferromagnetic impurities in your goods, do not hesitate to contact us. We can help you.

Free magnet audit

Free magnet audit is an exceptional service thatSollau_serviceman.jpg

  • checks the function of the magnetic separator (if the tramp metal is effectively trapped)
  • examines if the magnetic separator fulfils its potential and meets application requirements
  • evaluates the effective pull, the status, the location and the cleanness of the applied magnets

During the audit, we do not only inspect your magnetic equipment, but we also

  • provide training on care and maintenance of magnetic separators
  • suggest the measures to be taken in order to improve the operating efficiency of the magnetic separation related to your products and materials
  • identify the key areas in your company where the application of magnetic separators could enhance the operating performance, reduce operating costs, purify the product or protect processing equipment from metal damages

Audits are conducted by SOLLAU specialists that - in co-operation with the client - develop an audit plan and determine priorities. During the audit, the auditor physically inspects and measures the effective strength of the magnetic separator. He also photographs and documents the state of the device. After the check is completed, the auditor issues a detailed report including the results of the effective strength findings. The inspection results are also important references for internal quality assurance and help analyse biological, chemical and physical hazards (HAACP) as well as ensure high quality production (QA).
