Over-belt electromagnetic separator (STE)


Over-belt electromagnetic separator (STE)

Over-belt electromagnetic separator (SNK)

The STE type over-belt electromagnetic separator is designed for automatic separation of ferrous metals from bulk materials transported on belt conveyors or vibrating feeders. The electromagnetic separator protects mills, crushers and other process machines against damage caused by iron parts such as screws, pipe pieces, bearings or crusher teeth. The electromagnetic separator is also used to recover valuable ferrous scrap in waste recycling processes.

The over-belt electromagnetic separator is reliable, very durable and designed for continuous operation. It has high metal separation efficiency. The electromagnet used in the separator has a high-quality winding made of aluminum tape with the highest class of insulation. This makes it resistant to high temperatures and very durable.
