An overband magnet effectively and quickly separates high volumes of iron or steel and hangs above a flat or trough-shaped conveyor belt - in line or cross belt magnet. An overband magnetic separator is self-cleaning and continuously draws ferro parts from a material flow.


The iron removal efficiency of overband magnets ranges from 70 to 90%. This depends on magnet design, product flow and placement.
