The Magnapower range of Overband Magnet Separators are designed and manufactured to provide the highest possible ferrous metal recovery rates. They are built to an industry setting standard and are renowned for high performance and reliability.

Overband Magnets

We offer three types of overband magnet system to suit different applications:

1. Standard Permanent Overband Magnet

  • High Intensity Permanent Magnet System (guaranteed non-deteriorating)
    suitable for most applications
  • Full ‘tri-polar’ iron circuit magnet design minimises stray magnetic flux in the
    framework and pulleys of the overband
  • High permeability carbon steel iron circuit to maximise magnet efficiency
  • Full width folded guards to meet stringent safety standards


2. Permanent Overband: High Extraction Force, Lightweight: Ideally suited to mobile plant

  • Uniquely designed High Intensity Permanent Magnet System offering higher magnetic forces
  • Frame constructed from Stainless Steel to minimise stray magnetic flux
  • High permeability carbon steel iron circuit to maximise magnet efficiency
  • Full width folded guards to meet stringent safety standards


3. Electro Magnet Overband: Ideally suited to deep field (high working gaps) applications

  • Aluminium wound magnet coil to maximise the performance of the unit at high working gaps
  • High permeability carbon steel iron circuit to maximise magnet efficiency
  • Oil cooled to improve insulation and cooling characteristics
  • Oil expansion tank with level indicator


Our Range of Overbands typically have the following features:

  • Full width stainless steel guards or optional full mesh guards if required
  • Electric motor gearbox or hydraulic motor typically coupled to the drive shaft through flexible
  • coupling or to the drive pulley with a torque arm and flexible bush.
  • Supplied with lifting eyes for you to suspend the magnet from your support frame
  • A vulcanised endless belt is fitted with vulcanised or moulded cleats to prolong belt life
  • Simple framework allows for new endless belts to be fitted without dismantling the unit
  • High quality sealed for life, self aligning bearings
  • Armoured belt offered as a optional extra
