Vulcanis Maximise Steel Can Recovery with a Bunting Overband Magnet January 14, 2015
Vulcanis has designed and built a new recycling plant to receive and recover steel and aluminium cans in Barking, UK, and purchased a Cross Belt Overband Magnet for steel can recovery from Bunting Magnetics Europe Ltd.
When Vulcanis researched Magnetic Separators, they found that the Bunting design was fundamentally different to those proposed by most other suppliers. The most common design of Cross Belt Overband Suspended Magnet uses a magnet box that projects a single magnetic field down onto the conveyor belt. This is otherwise known as a ‘Single Pole’ magnet and is used commonly on mobile crushers. The Bunting ‘Twin Pole’ Cross Belt Magnet projects two separate strong magnetic fields down onto the surface of the conveyor belt and so doubled the chance of capturing the steel cans, thus maximising recovery.
