Magnetic separator can be used in a variety of manufacturing applications. It is the most easy and cost effective way to remove unwanted ferrous metals from the subjected material. Magnetic separator is able to deliver precise and efficient sorting of ferrous metals from non-ferrous materials. It makes practical and effective use in preventing accidental explosions or fires, protecting other sensitive equipment from damage and also to improve product purity and quality.
Magnetic separator offers many advantages such as:
good and clean iron ejection,
resistant and strong structures,
minimal running costs, and
it can be used independently or as a part of whole system.
The key to get the most out of this machines is by ensuring it is used safely and effectively. Here are few simple, but practical ways to make a magnetic separator safer and more effective.
Safety Practices – The most common cause of magnet damage and worker injury is transportation. Extreme care is necessary when these machines are being transported from one location to another. This is because a magnetic separator is incredibly powerful machine and can be attracted to surrounding surfaces such as steel, i-beans, etc. causing serious injuries to people around. That is why when dealing with these machines it is very important to ensure complete safety and follow safety manual.
Regular Cleaning Routine – Regular cleaning to remove fine metal particulates that have build up on the magnet will guarantee the maximum effectiveness and optimal performance of this machine. If not properly cleaned, the power of magnet can and will be diminished. Create an area free of carbon steel and other magnet metals to make the cleaning process easier, quicker and effective.
Eliminate Variables – Such as exposure to sunlight, consistently operating the magnetic separator in the temperatures beyond recommended levels can significantly lower the power of the magnetic separator. So can corrosion which is usually a result of an exposure to acids. These factors will not only diminish the power of the magnetic separator, but also increase the maintenance frequency and corrupt workers’ safety.
As you can see the ways to maximize the benefits of a magnet separator is to utilize safety practices, regularly clean the machine and to always eliminate common causes that can degrade the efficiency of the magnet. Magnet separator is a very cost effective machine that will increase productivity of your operations.
