Permanent Magnetic Pulleys operate as Head pulleys on belt conveyors. These low cost, self cleaning magnets remove tramp iron and purify materials conveyed in bulk forms. Magnetic Pulleys are used in industries like
- Coal Handling Plant
- Salt processing industries
- Minerals (e.g. Bauxite)
When material carried on a conveyor enters the magnetic field of the pulley, Ferrous particles are attracted to the belt. They are then held magnetically and carried to the underside of the pulley to get dislodge from the belt. Iron separation is automatic and continuous.
