Hump Magnet Separators for High-Volume Product Flow
For applications with high volumes of product flow, Bunting produces our trusted line of Hump Magnet Separators. Bunting Hump Magnet Separators are available in a classic hump style, a half-hump style, and a self-cleaning option. The design of Bunting’s hump magnets facilitates easy installation, which saves you from extensive downtime sometimes associated with the installation of new equipment. All of Bunting’s hump magnets are durable and built to last, meaning you will be making an investment in a high quality magnetic separation product you can trust.
Bunting’s hump magnets are intended for use in gravity free-fall applications, designed for installation in enclosed flow lines or on processing equipment. At Bunting, we offer extensive custom design options, including the ability to supply adapters made to your exact specifications.
Hump magnets are designed to handle gravity, moderate positive, and negative pressures.
The hump magnet’s angled shape directs product flow into the magnetic field, and helps to prevent build up and bridging. Additionally, the design of a hump magnet assists in slowing material down, as it forces the material to move through the hump in a zig zag pattern.
Hump magnets handle many materials that can be otherwise difficult to move efficiently while still optimizing magnetic separation. These magnets handle very fluffy products that can be compared to “cotton candy” like material, and also handle products such as long and stringy potato shreds, plastic flooring regrind, and fibrous materials. By breaking up clumps of product, these magnets provide increased protection against entrapped ferrous debris. By combining a design that liberates trapped material with powerful magnets, Bunting hump magnets are able to remove the greatest amount of ferrous debris from product that has a tendency to harbor hidden contamination.
Bunting’s half-hump magnet has the same basic design as a traditional hump magnet, but are constructed in a half-hump design that allows them to fit in areas with height restrictions that prohibit installation of a standard hump magnet. Like its larger version, the half-hump housing directs material flow over the single high-strength permanent magnet and breaks up aggregated material to dislodge and capture embedded metal contaminants.
For added process convenience and efficiency, Bunting also offers a self-cleaning model of hump magnet. Our pneumatically controlled self-cleaning models reduce downtime and permit remote or automated operation. We offer a pre-engineered control package that allows for optimum sequencing of the cleaning cycle.
Metal-Detectable Gaskets and Grommets are standard in housing of Hump Magnets.
Hump Magnets Quick Facts:
• Offset design breaks up clumps and directs material into magnetic field.
• Select double or single hump housings sized and outfitted to your specs.
• Available with mild steel or stainless steel construction. Custom transitions for round, square, or rectangular spouting are available to fit any application.
• Hinged plate magnets swing open for quick manual cleaning.
• Self-cleaning models reduce cleaning time and labor.
Our Half-Hump Magnets are used where Hump Magnets will not fit because of height restrictions. Like its larger version, the Half-Hump housing directs the material flow over the single high-strength permanent magnet and breaks up aggregated material to dislodge and capture embedded metal contaminants.
