Overband magnet protects gold mine
Published:  03 August, 2020

BUNTING says the largest Electro Overband Magnet ever built at its manufacturing plant in Redditch, is destined for installation in a gold mine in Northern Finland. Over a twelve-month operating period, the Overband Magnet will lift and separate damaging tramp metal from approximately 2.7 million tonnes of conveyed ore, protecting crushers, screens and other up-stream process plant.

Bunting is one of the world’s leading designers and manufacturers of magnetic separators for the recycling and waste industries. The Bunting European manufacturing facilities are in Redditch, just outside Birmingham, and Berkhamsted.

The Electro Overband Magnet uses high-strength magnetic forces to lift and then automatically discard tramp ferrous metal present in conveyed ore. In operation, the large Electro Overband Magnet is suspended in a crossbelt orientation across the non-magnetic head pulley of a conveyor transporting mined ore.
