The Magnapower magnetic head pulley is widely used in the recycling and material handling industries for the continuous removal of ferrous metal. We are committed to providing a high performance unit which is durable and reliable and provides maximum magnetic separation efficiency.

Our magnetic head pulleys tend to be built to our customer’s size requirements for either new conveyors or to replace a standard head pulley in an existing conveyor. We can also design and build
the conveyor with the magnetic head pulley if required.


We provide advice on the best type of magnet system required and whether a magnetic head pulley is
the most suitable separator for the application.

Magnapower offer two different types of magnet system:

Standard Strength Ferrite Magnets

Suitable for separating general tramp iron and contamination such as nuts, bolts, nails, steel cans, wire, etc.
