QUALITY AUSTRALIAN-MADE STATIC OVERBELT MAGNET
Introducing a safer option!
Pulling large tramps off an Overbelt Magnet or Tramp Iron Magnets, as they are sometimes called is a task in itself. There is a high risk of hand injury as the metal is often sharp, and a lot of force is required to remove it from the magnet.
MSA has offered easy-to-discharge Tramp Iron Magnets for many years now with growing demand since the 2016 Report “In Safe Hands” The State of Hand Protection in Australia, compiled by the National Safety Council of Australia Foundation and Ansell.
Our Stainless-steel drawers make cleaning operations simple and safe. The drawer can be easily pulled out from under the magnet, and the collected tramps will fall from the magnetic field for an easy and safe collection (shown in the below video). Quality bearings are used to prevent the collected tramps from pinning the drawer to the magnet, and a stopper is in place to prevent the drawer from opening too far and falling.
Imported magnets trying to copy our concept usually have more rudimentary designs without bearings and stoppers. These basic copies often result in the captured tramp pinning their drawer to the bottom of the magnet. MSA has seen drawers that open over the belt which discharge back into the burden, instead of being discharged off to the side of the conveyor belt, as our Overbelts do.
A truly dependable means of tramp metal extraction:
- These Australian-made units are installed over conveyors to remove unwanted iron and steel items, such as machinery damaging roof bolts, bucket teeth, or product contaminating items like fencing wire, screws, staples, and other steel items.
- Eyelets are rated for shear loads allowing flexibility in your install.
- All MSA units conform to current engineering standards and best practices.
- Large stockholding, rapid delivery of spares and components.

“Waglass has the contract to process all of the glass from the WA Container Deposit Scheme. The Waglass Plant at Bassendean in WA is a highly specialised plant containing over 60 items of equipment. The plant processes and sorts all of the glass collected from WA CDS into three colours of glass which is containerised and shipped to Orora’s bottle making facility in SA for direct feed to their furnaces.
There are strict quality standards required by Orora for the product we produce. Amongst them is that ferrous metal levels must be below 0.1g/100kg. To achieve this standard, a Magnetic Head Pulley was purchased from MSA Magnetics in September 2020 and it has been operating in our plant for the last 12 months. During that period, we have extracted several tonnes of ferrous metal using this Pulley, and at no point have we found any ferrous metal in our finished product.
We have since purchased a second unit from MSA in case of breakdown, but to date have had no reason to use it.
We have no hesitation in recommending MSA regarding the quality of their products and service”.
