Product category: Metal separators

Metal Detectors

The most common of foreign material within processing is metal.

Bunting® Metal Detectors sense and remove the presence of ferrous, non-ferrous and stainless metals in the process flow. These units also find metal encapsulated in the individual particle.

Successful detection and separation of metal will protect your processing equipment from damage, which saves your organization money and down time.

Innovative Triple Coil Design
Bunting Metal Detectors utilize triple coil design for the search head. This is comprised of windings around an aperture opening, whether round, or rectangular. There is a transmitter in the center, and two receivers (one at entrance of the search head, and one at the exit). Within the aperture opening, an electromagnetic field is created. When a piece of metal passes through the coil opening, a signal is generated and calculated at each and activates further operations or devices.

Magnetic Separators

Permanent protection for your products and equipment.

Bunting® Magnetics Co. manufactures an extensive line of magnetic separation equipment to remove ferrous contaminants from dry particulates, liquids, and slurries. We supply everything from basic cartridges, grates, and plate magnets to magnet housings, self-cleaning separators, pulleys, and drums.

Our magnetic separators work individually or in tandem to remove ferrous metal debris from gravity, mechanical, or pneumatic conveying systems.

Stainless Steel Separator - High Intensity Separation Conveyor HISC

High Intensity Separator Conveyor

Intended Applications: Magnetic separation of small work hardened 300 Stainless Steel and para-magnetic chips

The High Intensity Separation Conveyors (HISC) from Bunting Magnetics are very powerful and are ideal for a range of recycling industries such as plastics, electronics and automotive. They have been specifically designed to separate things like small work hardened 300 stainless steel and para-magnetic pieces from auto steel fraction that has been shredded as well as materials from ground plastic. The industry as a whole is very excited about this piece of equipment because the kind of metal and material separation that was nigh on impossible to achieve until recently, is now made possible and a new level of product purity is attainable thanks to the extremely powerful magnetic separation conveyor.

Through the use of Magnetic Finite Element Design software, the engineers at Bunting have been able to optimise the magnetic field strength to produce some of the highest surface gauss intensities in the wider industry. Although the field height is fairly low, the design allows for very strong fields which will attract, hold and extract materials with even very weak magnetic materials such as small screws found inside scrapped computers, stainless steel razor blades, chips that might be attached to green boards and stainless steel sheet metal found on hard drives. The high intensity separator conveyor is also very useful for picking up and separating stainless steel from shredded automotive parts and machinery.
