How Magnetic Rails And Pulleys Work:
Magnetic Box Rails and T Type Box Rails are usually mounted in tandem with magnetic pulleys and other rails beneath a conveyor’s belt. The standard design provides quick installation to a conveyor’s framework or table. They can be custom designed and manufactured to fit your specifications.
Pulleys are typically used as transfer devices in belt conveyors. As metal nears the pulley’s magnetic field, it is attracted and held to the conveyor’s belt until it reaches the transfer point.
- Rigidized face-plate
- Angled infeed and discharge ends, to match pulley
- Tapering magnetic fields
- Curved rails for 30°, 45°, 60°, or 90° turns and inside or outside radii from 4” to 72”
- Custom face-plate flanges
- Custom mounting holes
- Non-standard magnetic polarities
- Multiple lane magnetic fields
- Magnet Faces
- Flat Stainless Steel (FS): This is the most economical option offered and provides a durable non-magnetic stainless steel belt running surface.
- Flat Stainless Steel with Centering Track Bar (FSTB): This is an economical way to provide a degree of center belt tracking, without the expensive costs of crowning.
- Crowned Stainless Steel (CS): This is the most expensive option and offers a durable non-magnetic stainless steel-belt running surface with a belt centering crown.
- Crowned Vulcanized Rubber (CVR): This option offers both an economical way to provide a belt-centering crown design and improved belt traction.
- Crowned Vulcanized and Lagged Rubber (CVRL): This option can be added to any vulcanized rubber roll where belt traction is critical. It is available in a variety of standard patterns, such as herringbone, diamond, etc.
