Permanent Magnetic Crossbelt Separators for Recycling 

Light Duty Magnetic Crossbelt Separator 

Light Duty Magnetic Crossbelt Separator-Bunting-Material Handling

A compact, lightweight magnetic separator typically used over shredder discharge conveyors for plastic or electronic recycling applications.

• Lightweight design for mounting above shredder discharge conveyors.

• Available with ceramic or high-strength neodymium rare earth magnets for stronger fields.

• 4”-8” reachout; used where depth of burden is low to pull out small contamination out of shredded plastic.

• Often placed before metal detectors in these applications over the same conveyor.

Optional Suspension Equipment


Optional support structures and guarding are available to suspend our crossbelt separators over lower belted conveyors and other equipment.

Optional support stru ctures can range from the heavy-duty tubular or channel steel adjustable supports with turnbuckles or heavy threaded rods suspensions to lighter formed steel support structures that mount onto the lower conveyor for the small Magnetic Crossbelt Conveyors.

All are designed to adjust the magnetic field as low to maximize separation but clear the thickest burden depth. Other options include expanded metal shields and guarding on the ends of the conveyor along with custom fabricated tramp iron chutes and electrical controls.



Model Guide and Options

All our crossbelts have a vast range of options to suit your application and requirements.

Please call our experienced applications engineers to help specify the correct magnet and options for your individual application.
