The Overband or Suspended Magnet is one of the most common magnetic separators used in the world. However, the performance varies enormously. When assessing the performance there are simple tests that can be conducted. The video shows a classic test, with a Bunting Overband Cross Belt Magnet suspended at 300mm and picking up a small metal bar. Do the same test with your magnet and check that the performance is better or similar. If it isn’t, then maybe it is the right time to speak with Bunting. They will be at both the RWM and Interplas exhibitions in the NEC Birmingham in September.
