Industrial Magnetics Inc., Boyne City, Michigan, offers a magnetic separation pulley and conveyor system designed for the automated separation of weakly magnetic stainless steel, eliminating the need to recover this work-hardened material by hand, the company says.
The Javelin magnetic stainless separation conveyor and the magnetic stainless separation pulley magnet are designed to attract and hold low-grade, weakly magnetic stainless-steel scrap from e-scrap, chopped wire and auto shredder residue (ASR).
IMI’s Javelin Brand Manager Jason Miller explains, “In it’s pure form, 300-grade stainless steel has virtually no magnetic potential. However, after it has been cold-worked or shredded, the potential increases to the point where it can be held by a very strong magnet. Additionally, as many of the other grades of stainless steel possess magnetic potential in their natural state, they too are susceptible to magnetic attraction.”
Offered as an all-in-one conveyor unit or as a stand-alone head pulley that can be integrated into existing conveyor systems, the units are available in several standard strength and width configurations ranging from 36 inches to 80 inches. Custom strengths and widths also are available to fit the unique needs of an application.
