The Applications of Hydraulic Magnets

The Applications of Hydraulic Magnets

Traditional electromagnets are usually enough to do the heavy lifting at a scrap yard, construction site, or demolition site. In special cases, however, you may find that you need special equipment. A fully enclosed hydraulic magnet is a variation on the electromagnet that uses hydraulic flow to power itself without the use of an outside power source. By familiarizing yourself with the applications of hydraulic magnets, you can decide whether these devices are something you need in your arsenal.

How To Measure Magnetic Separator Strength

How To Measure Magnetic Separator Strength

You’ve heard of separating the wheat from the chaff. In recycling, scrapping, and many other industries, there’s another separation goal—separating the ferrous from the non-ferrous, or the metallic from the non-metallic. Industries accomplish this with magnetic separators. Permanent and electromagnetic separators identify and set apart metallic particles that pass through, whether on conveyor belts or through pipelines. Recyclers use separators to get to the valuable copper inside granulated insulated wire. Pharmaceutical manufacturers and food processing facilities rely on separators to catch unwanted and hazardous metals that have contaminated products somewhere in the process.

How To Select Demolition Grapples

How To Select Demolition Grapples

Construction is an important, rewarding, and redeeming job. But demolition—that’s where the fun comes in. It’s hard to deny the sense of satisfaction that can come from tearing down an old building, watching it come down, and clearing the space out so that construction crews can start anew on that spot. But demolition isn’t all fun and games. There’s serious work to be done when it comes to taking down construction, and the serious work calls for serious tools.

A Comprehensive List of Ferromagnetic Materials

A Comprehensive List of Ferromagnetic Materials

Metals and magnetism go hand in hand. Magnetism, whether it’s strong or weak, is a characteristic of metal along with conductivity, malleability, and ductility. But just as metals can be ductile but not malleable, or malleable but not ductile, magnetism isn’t a condition to be taken for granted.

Temporary Vs. Permanent Magnets: The Difference

Temporary Vs. Permanent Magnets: The Difference

Magnetism matters. From navigating the seas by compass to navigating your neighborhood by smartphone, none of it would be possible without harnessing magnetic fields. Without getting too abstract, magnetism matters when it comes to identifying and moving metal at a scrapyard. But with the power it takes for a magnet on a crane to lift a hunk of steel, how does that all that magnetic energy not cause the world to go haywire? The answer lies in the difference between temporary and permanent magnets. Let’s take a closer look.

Different Types of Magnet Generator Systems

Different Types of Magnet Generator Systems

Companies that use magnets in their day-to-day operations know just how useful they really are. Without magnets, the efficiency and productivity of companies would decrease, thus plummeting their revenue. What many companies forget about, however, is how their magnets are being powered. The majority of modern magnets are electric because they use energy efficiently, they’re customizable, and versatile. That said, you need to power the magnet somehow, right? The engine often powers magnets that attach directly to heavy machinery such as a crane or excavator; though not always. What’s even more common is separate magnet generators.
