Job Stories


When an Australian power supply authority had a tramp iron problem in their coal supply system, certain measures were required to protect the crushing and screening equipment.


Open-cut mining equipment was recovering roof bolts up to 2m in length and other tramp iron in  large quantities from an area previously mined by underground methods.


To recover this tramp metal not only required a magnetic separator of substantial size and weight.  The unit would have to be installed into an existing system which structurally had not been designed to take the additional load.  The roof bolts would have to be removed from a conveyor operating at a speed at 3.3m-s without damaging the belt.

Mecal provided the total engineering solution to this problem.  From initial conceptial discussions through the design stage to the installation and final successful commissioning of this customised tramp separator and its support structure, the client would rely on Mecal's exclusive experience with magnetic equipment and professional engineering support to carry out this project.

For more than 20 years have been leaders in the field of magnetic equipment.  Years of experience in the application of magnets in separation and material handling, qualified professional engineers, our own "in house" developed computer aided design and evaluation programs assure that we will also in the fututre remain the leaders.
