Copper Cleaning

The Magnapower Copper Cleaner has been designed specifically for the cable recycling industry.

Copper granules are produced to an exceptionally high standard in this industry and it is important that ferrous metal is removed to prevent a reduction in value of the product.

  • Simple
  • Cost effective
  • Easy to install and operate
  • No power supply required

Cable recycling plants will usually incorporate several magnetic separators to remove ferrous metal at different stages. There can still be a very low fraction of ferrous particles left in the copper granules and a simple final clean up is required.

The Copper Cleaner is a free-standing magnetic separator with simple operation. It allows all finished product to pass over the very high intensity magnetic face where remaining ferrous particles are held to the surface.


Material is presented to the top surface of the Copper Cleaner by chute. Copper granules continue over the surface of the Copper Cleaner but ferrous metal is held by the magnetic field to the surface. When required the surface is pushed around by hand so that the ferrous particles drop into a separate bin behind the flow of cleaned copper granules.

We also manufacture a wide range of the following equipment for the cable recycling industry:
