Receiving Belt Magnet - MPI Magnet
Receiving Belt Magnet
MPI’s Receiving Belt Magnets remove both large and small types of tramp metal from product streams conveyed by belts at speeds up to 250 feet per minute. The captured tramp metal accumulates across the entire magnetic face, substantially increasing the amount of tramp iron the magnet can retain before cleaning is required.
MPI’s RBM magnet consists of a large plate magnet suspended over the conveyed product stream. The Receiving Belt Magnet should be suspended approximately 5” - 8” above the product stream for optimum tramp metal removal (8”-10” with bucking option). The magnet should be located in an area that has easy access to allow for proper cleaning. Also, the magnet should operate in an area of the belt where no integral parts of the conveyor can become magnetized, such as idler rollers or belting support plates, as this may cause excessive wear on the conveyor system. To clean the magnet, simply grab the handle on the quick clean stripper and pull towards you until it hits stop. After all metal has fallen from the stripper, slide the stripper face back into place.
