Overband separators are self cleaning and are used where frequent contamination occurs in a product. Their self-cleaning function ensures full efficiency continuously. Typical installations are over conveyors where tramp iron contamination must be removed to protect subsequent processing machinery or provide a cleaner product.
These separators can be fitted across the conveyor at right angle to the product flow, discharging to one side. Alternatively they can be fitted in line over the conveyor head pulley, discharging extracted iron forward of the product trajectory.
