Magnetic Head Pulleys

Magnetic Head Pulleys

Magnetic Head Pulleys Magnetic Head Pulley

Head pulley Magnets are some of the simplest, yet most effective, magnetic separators. Just mount it in place of a standard head pulley and it easily and efficiently separates ferrous metal from the product stream.

Head pulleys are built using our exclusive flux control magnetic circuit. This design ensures continuous magnetism around the entire circumference of the pulley – no dead spots. For less critical applications, a conventional magnetic circuit design is also offered.

Head Pulley Magnets are designed to provide years of trouble-free service:

  • Permanent magnet means no energy consumption
  • Uniform magnetic field
  • Large selection of widths and diameters available
  • Crowned face for belt tracking
  • Weatherproof stainless steel face
  • Shipped ready to install
  • Optional lagging available

Perma Pulleys are permanent magnetic separators that operate as head pulleys on belt conveyors. These self-cleaning magnets remove tramp iron and purify material conveyed in bulk form. In many applications, it’s possible to replace an existing head pulley with a Perma Pulley, on a size-for-size basis. A wide range of diameters, widths, and shaft sizes are available.

Head Pulley

Reasons for using a head pulley:

  • Cost effective separation for material depths up to 8-1/2″
  • No operating costs
  • Excellent for secondary separation after an overhead or drum magnet
  • Excellent for tramp iron protection for cushers, grinders, pulverizers, screens and other processing equipment
  • Increases product purity in food, chemicals, plastics, glass by removing unwanted iron

Options available:

  • Lagging for belt traction
  • Center crown strip for belt tracking
  • Paint to match current equipment

Common Applications:

  • Foundry
  • C&D Recycling
  • MRF Recycling


  • Diameters of 8, 12, 15, 18, 20, 24, 30, 36, 42 inches
  • Widths from 12 inches to 96 inches

Strength Levels:

  • Standard Duty
    For general use with burden depths up to 4″, belt speeds to 340 FPM. Good for secondary clean up of misc. tramp iron and fines
  • Heavy Duty
    For general use with burden depths up to 7-1/2″, belt speeds to 400 FPM. Used in Construction & Demolition and MRF applications
    For general use with burden depths up to 8-1/2″, belt speed to 400 FPM. Used in Mining, Foundry, and heavy duty applications
