Overband Electromagnetic Separator (EMS)

Suspended Overband Electromagnetic Separator

Self Cleaning Overband Magnetic Separator

Jupiter’s Overband Electromagnetic Separators are the most effective units for the continuous removal of tramp ferrous material from a product stream.
This type of magnetic separator is used to protect, clean and separate materials on applications in the recycling and quarrying industries. Overbelt Magnets are self-cleaning, so that no manual cleaning is required and downtime for the end user is reduced to a minimum.

Electromagnetic Overband Separators

The Heavy-Duty electro overband is the most powerful overband separator from the Jupiter range. Jupiter manufacture the widest range of this type of separator, with the largest weighing 25 tonnes and spanning across a 2 metre wide conveyor.
Due to its high magnetic strength, the overband is able to work at an increased operating gap, enabling it to extract ferrous from deep troughed conveyors.
Electro magnetic overbands are commonly used for installation in plants within the quarrying and recycling industries where they would be positioned either inline over the head pulley or across a conveyor belt.
Jupiter Magnetics supply Heavy-Duty overband magnets to operate over 150mm - 2000mm conveyor belts. For larger conveyor belt widths, overband magnets can be custom designed to suit the application. Additional support structures can also be supplied.
There are two different types of heavy-duty electro overbands separators available:

Oil cooled - This type of heavy-duty overband is the most commonly used of the two types. It efficiently maintains an optimum working temperature and is also capable of producing a higher magnetic force than the equivalent air cooled electro overband magnet.

Air cooled - This type of magnet is used where oil is not a customers preference for health and safety reasons. For example, a client may wish to use this type of cooling because he used the magnetic separator over sugar shredded cane.


Typical applications for the Mastermag range of Overbands are;

  • Installation in Coal Industry
  • Use in Cement Plants
  • Thermal Power Plants
  • Used in Fertilizers industry
  • Separation of ferrous metals from Municipal Solid Waste
  • Removal of ferrous contamination in glass cullet recycling
  • Removal of Tramp Iron from shredded cane in Sugar Mills.
  • Removal of ferrous from Foundry applications
