Self cleaning or manual cleaning

Manual cleaning
The magnet is shut off to release the captured tramp metal which falls from the magnet face. Typically, a trolley system is installed to move the magnet away from the conveyor so the reject ferrous material can fall directly into a bin or on the ground.

Self cleaning 
Self-cleaning electromagnetic separators feature a continuously rotating cleated belt around the unit. When ferrous tramp material is captured to the belt, the cleats swiftly move the tramp across the magnet face where it is discharged once it leaves the magnetic field.
