The most important application of rapper conveyors is the conveying and separation of ferromagnetic parts. For this purpose a conveyor magnet system is suspended on the rapper zone of the conveyor.
With a continuous movement, the bulk material is thrown by the tapping device in direction of the magnet. The iron parts are separated from the bulk material, attracted by the magnet and pushed out of the magnetic field. After leaving the magnetic area, the iron particles fall into a collecting device. The transversely to the conveyor suspended magnet leads to an ideal magnetization of the iron parts and facilitates their separation.
