Atlas Copco has launched its latest hydraulic attachment, the Hydro Magnet, a range of tools for recycling plants, scrapyards and the demolition industry. The attachment enables iron and steel to be separated quickly and easily from concrete waste for subsequent recycling.

The attachment is installed on the existing grapple or shear installation, and requires no extra generator or electro cable on the carrier; hydraulic power provides automatic flow and pressure control by means of a sophisticated flow divider.

A high activating voltage rapidly achieves the magnetic power to attract a large amount of ferrous material and hold it firmly in place. A shock alternation of the polarity accelerates demagnetization, resulting in fast material drop and a magnet plate free from even small pieces of steel.

Two Hydro Magnets are available in two versions, as a fixed magnet (F), or a mobile magnet with chain link (M). Load capacities range from 280 up to 7,500 kg.

The electronically controlled generator is made of corrosion free alloy and has a digital control device in a waterproofed body. Atlas Copco’s digital generator control technology gives a magnetization and demagnetization process cycle that is up to 25% shorter than conventional magnet controllers.

The digital control device also protects the Hydro Magnet against the risk of damage caused by short circuiting, overheating or excessively high or low revolutions of the generator.

All of this is integrated into a compact design and the magnet plate is made to handle rough environments. A hermetically sealed steel case protects the magnet coil against mechanical impacts and humidity, and an external Hardox steel ring protects against wear. The large steel surface compensates for temperature increases.
