Eriez® Finishing Mill Unloaders Boost Productivity in Parts Finishing Operations

Press Release:
  Sep 6, 2013 — Erie, PA — Eriez® Finishing Mill Unloaders quickly and automatically remove ferrous parts from finishing mill media, helping to improve productivity and efficiency in busy parts finishing operations. Three models are available to match customers’ specific application requirements.

All Eriez Finishing Mill Unloaders use a permanent magnet pickup, can be quickly and easily wheeled into position beside the mill and are hydraulically lowered into place. As parts near the surface of the media, they are pulled out by the magnetic field, conveyed up and away from the mill, and pass through a demagnetizing unit before reaching the discharge chute.

The Model 58 C/P Mill Unloader is a fully-enclosed magnetic conveyor with permanent magnets mounted on an endless chain revolving beneath a stainless-steel plate. This unit is designed for lightweight parts.

The Model 9B-P Mill Unloader utilizes a cleated conveyor belt with a 12-inch diameter magnetic head pulley to pull out parts. Magnetic rails above the pulley hold parts firmly to the belt until they reach the horizontal portion of the conveyor.

The most versatile Eriez Finishing Mill Unloader is the Model 9B-DP. This unit can normally remove all parts from a 10-20 cubic foot mill in five minutes or less. As parts are pulled out of the media and carried to the top of a 12-inch diameter magnetic drum, they jump across an adjustable gap to an eight-inch diameter head pulley revolving with a horizontal conveyor belt. Any trapped media falls back into the mill as the parts move through the demagnetizer to discharge.
