Magnetic Separation Equipment

Stearns Suspended Magnets

Stearns Suspended Magnets are custom engineered ferrous material separation solutions utilizing standard components that are offered in both permanent and electromagnet versions to meet specific application requirements.

Stearns Suspended Magnets are designed to remove occasional unwanted tramp metal or ferrous impurities from process flows. These magnets are suspended over conveyor belts to effectively remove tramp metal to prevent damage to downstream process equipment such as crushers, pulverizes and grinders.

  • Low or minimal maintenance required
  • Permanent magnet version equipped with convenient wiper bar for material removal
  • Simple installation over any process flow
  • Available in Permanent and Electromagnetic (see details below)
  • Self-Cleaning Feature (see details below)
