Magnetic cross-belt conveyor's design protects it from tramp metal tears
Bunting® Magnetics Co. has developed a new design for its magnetic cross-belt conveyor product line.
UHMW wings extend over the bottom side edges of the belt to protect it from tramp metal tears. This wing design seals the edge of the belt and keeps tramp metal from snapping to the side of the conveyor frame or getting under the belt. This protection against material getting under the belt reduces any hindrance to the operation of the conveyor. As additional protection, the magnet being used is surrounded with a heavy-box stainless steel frame.
A new magnetic deep-reach circuit provides maximum separation effectiveness of tramp metal for municipal recycling and higher product purity in a shredding recycling operation, the company reports.
