Overband Magnets

The Magnapower range of Overband Magnet Separators are a type of permanent magnet designed and manufactured to provide the highest possible ferrous metal recovery rates in the toughest environments. All equipment is designed and built for maximum performance and reliability.

Magnapower Overband Magnet
  • Higher levels of cleaner ferrous metals
  • Heavy duty parts and construction to reduce any maintenance requirements
  • 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)
  • Our new range of high working gap In-Line separators improve ferrous purity and reduce maintenance
  • Excellent back up and service

Our commitment is to provide separators which are the leading performers in the industry.

Crossbelt or in-line position

Overbands 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.


  • Easier installation position over existing conveyor
  • Full range of belt widths and working gaps


  • Higher levels of ferrous extraction
  • Cleaner Materials
  • Reduced belt wear

Magnet Systems

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

Permanent Deep Field Ferrite – standard for most applications – either single pole or double pole

Permanent Rare Earth – ideal for lighter weight, heavy duty high performance units

Electro – for high working gaps (above 400mm) or where on/off function is required
