We have a strong commitment to providing separators which are the leading performers in the separation industry. Our equipment is also designed and built to be reliable and durable even in the toughest environments.

A suspension magnet tends to be used above conveyors or chutes where there are only low levels of ferrous metal. They extract ferrous metal to the magnet surface where it will need to be removed manually.

Our separators provide:

  • Higher levels of ferrous extraction
  • Heavy duty parts and construction
  • Magnetic force focused into product only where it is needed
  • Deep field permanent magnets for applications where electro magnets used to be required (significant cost savings)
  • Magnet selection expertise at your service
  • Our application and selection expertise is at your service
  • Excellent back up and service
  • 12 months standard guarantee – extended guarantees available

We offer a wide range of permanent and electro magnet systems and will discuss which is best for your application.


Suspension Magnets can be installed in one of two positions and we will help to you to determine which is best for your plant layout and separation requirements.

Cross-belt Suspension Magnet

  • Easy installation over existing conveyor
  • Comprehensive range of belt widths and working gaps

In-line Suspension Magnet

  • Higher levels of ferrous extraction
  • Cleaner ferrous metals
Suspension Magnet Inline Material

Material on the conveyor passes underneath the suspension magnet. Ferrous metal is attracted to its surface allowing the ‘cleaned’ product to continue along the conveyor as normal. The ferrous metal can then be removed manually when necessary or convenient to do so. Please note that full lock off procedure is required during this process. If a self cleaning magnet is required then we can provide an overband magnet instead of the suspension magnet.
