MSA Magnetics manufactures and supplies various metal separation options for many different industries, including mining, recycling, plastics manufacturing, agriculture, and many more.
Designed for tough industrial applications, MSA magnetic separators are excellent for machine protection and can save thousands of dollars on repairs and replacements caused by damage to machinery due to unwanted metal and tramp iron. Magnetic separators also improve product purity by effective extraction of contaminants such a roof bolts, pins, drill rods, earthmoving equipment parts and scrap metal, and also prevent downtime and reduction of maintenance as a result of damage to equipment or contamination of product.
Some of our best metal separation options for various industries:
Overbelt & Suspension Magnets
MSA Magnetics offers manual or self-cleaning overbelt and suspension magnets, for inline or crossbelt applications. These magnetic separators are designed, tested, and assembled in Australia using as many local components as possible. Extra care is taken to use locally sourced non-proprietary bearings and motors. This is because we know many of our customers operate in regional or remote areas and need to be as self-sufficient as possible. We understand downtime costs you money and things need to happen fast.
The MSA Static Overbelt Magnets have stainless steel drawers for easy manual cleaning. Check out how easy it is to clean them!
Magnetic Head Pulley Conversions
MSA applies a proprietary RE80 magnet conversion system to convert your existing Head Pulleys into High-Strength Magnetic Head Pulleys. This enables the increase of unwanted tramp iron and metal fragment removal from your product lines without manual labour.
Magnetic Head Pulleys operate much the same as non-magnetic Head Pulleys, except that the metal pieces are discharged separately to the non-magnetic product stream.
As the product stream reaches the conveyor discharge point, ferrous metal is attracted to the pulleys magnetic field and held to the belt. As the belt moves around the pulley, the non-magnetic material is discharged in a normal trajectory, however, the ferrous metal is still held to the belt. When the belt passes out of the magnetic field, the magnetic material drops off into a separate chute or bin to the rest of the product. A non-magnetic splitter may be installed to separate the two discharges. Ferrous metals commonly extracted from the product stream include nails, nuts, bolts, wire, cans, screws, tools, and so on.
Watch our MSA Magnetic Head Pulley in action. This plant is crushing some rubbish demo material and our magnet is separating 99%.
As a more cost-effective solution, MSA can convert your old pulley, or we can supply a new one.

Drum magnets are also an excellent choice for protection of downstream equipment and improving product purity. The MSA Drum Magnets can be Ceramic Ferrite or Rare Earth, and various designs are available for many industry applications.
Grate Magnets and Drawer Magnets
MSA offer both manual and automated Grate and Drawer Magnets, with design options for many industries and applications.
The MSA Agrimag Magnet options include a variety of designs, such as Probe Magnets, Bullet Magnets, Bar Magnets, Plate Magnets, and more. These metal separators suit a variety of industries.
Whether it’s an airport, sporting field or a mine site, a beach rake or a road sweeper you want to protect, MSA can supply stock units or design custom Sweeper Magnetic Equipment to suit your needs. Permanent and electromagnet options are available. The benefits of MSA Sweeper Magnets include:
- Super powerful to capture small and large ferrous materials
- Deep magnetic field
- Designed to suit desired operating speed
- Stock sizes available for immediate delivery
- Road sweeper magnets available for rear tyre protection
Beach Rake Magnets
MSA supply Beach Rake Magnets to capture stainless steel tines that break off beach rakes. These metal separators are very powerful and have a deep magnetic field to allow the magnet to retain captured metal tines on uneven sand. MSA offers design options for hydraulic and manual discharge.
