Is the lifting magnet reliable and safe?

The answer is: definitely, yes. 

For a novice, the view of a 60-ton load supported by an electromagnet can be scary. Beyond the fact that, every day, thousands of tons are handled with electromagnets throughout the world - which appears to be the most convincing proof of the effectiveness of this type of equipment - we would add the following arguments:

  • electromagnets have a much lower and slower mechanical wear compared to grippers and slings.
  • the magnetism between the magnet and the steel load is so strong that we could compare it to a weld.
  • there are standards in force that impose safety factors depending on whether permanent or electromagnets are used.
  • even in the case of power failure, the electromagnets are instantly powered by batteries.
  • in order to avoid any human error, the regulatory ergonomics of a demagnetization command require validating the release of the load with two voluntary actions by simultaneously pressing 2 buttons located far from each other.

Please note: It is necessary to regularly maintain and monitor the equipment and use it only for the operations it was designed for. 

I have a bulk product for sorting or purification. How do I know what can be extracted?

If you have doubts about whether it is possible to extract steel and aluminium, in the form of large blocks or fine particles, contact your technical sales department. They have the experience required to answer your questions and, if necessary, we can perform tests in our laboratory. We have a fleet of machines with various magnetism based technology.

Does LENOIR repair equipment manufactured by their competitors?

Our extensive knowledge of magnetism allows us to repair lifting electromagnets by competing brands. 

We also repair the overband electromagnets and purification chambers manufactured by our colleagues. 

For any other equipment, specify the brand and the model on the "Contacts".
