Custom Options to Consider Beltless Magnetic Conveyor MPI Difference

Beltless Magnetic Conveyor MPI Difference 101 feet long

    Powerful permanent magnets are conveyed below a nonmagnetic stainless steel slider bed to move and convey ferrous metal objects. The liquid-tight, sealed conveyor housing can be completely submerged in machine reservoir tanks and the internal self-adjusting take-up system eliminates the need for maintenance. No external moving components make the beltless magnetic conveyor the safest way to convey ferrous metal parts and scrap.

    800 Series Dogleg Beltless Magnetic Conveyor



    • BLM Series:
      • MPI offers three series of magnetic conveyors. Each larger series has a larger body to accommodate larger magnetic cartridges and heavier duty internal chain designed to handle more difficult scrap or higher scrap rate capacities. MPI will help you select the correct duty for your application.
        • 600 Series – 6.5″ body depth
        • 800 Series – 8.5″ body depth
        • 1200 Series – 13.875″ body depth
    • Shape Configuration:
      • Horizontal straight
      • Incline straight nose over
      • Dogleg horizontal/continuous radius discharge
      • Dogleg nose over
      • Incline straight horizontal/continuous radius discharge
    • Discharge Design:
      • Horizontal (standard)
      • Nose over – recommended or small scrap and compact designs
      • Continuous radius – recommended for smooth scrap transfer of long pieces
    • Infeed Length:
      • Minimum infeed length is 30″ to as long as required for customer application
    • Angle of Incline:
      • 15°
      • 30°
      • 45°
      • 60°
      • 75°
      • 90°
      • Custom
    • Discharge Length: The minimum discharge length depends on the discharge design selected. The discharge lengths can be made as long as required for the application.
      • Minimum length for nose over-discharge design is body width, the shortest design available
      • Minimum length for horizontal discharge design is 22″
      • Minimum length for continuous radius discharge design depends on the angle of incline, at least 22″
    • Infeed Height: Floor installation is standard. This will result in the infeed height being the body depth specified by the series selected. Legs can be added for raised infeed heights.
      • Body depth (standard)
      • As specified for the application (legs added)
    • Discharge Height:
      • No standard – as specified for the application
    • Overall Length:
      • Calculated based on configured dimensions and options specified above
    • Slider Bed Width: Minimum widths are based on series selected. Standard widths are available in increments of 2″ from the minimum to a maximum of 24”. Overall body width of the conveyor is the slider bed width plus 4″.
      • 600 series – minimum 6″
      • 800 series – minimum 8″
      • 1200 series – minimum 12″
      • Special – compact design where overall body width of the conveyor is the slider bed width plus 2″
    • Slider Bed Material:
      • Under 18″ wide – 12 gauge stainless (standard)
      • 18″ wide and larger – 7 gauge stainless (standard)
