Atlas Copco Hydro Magnet picks up profit from demolition waste


The latest complement to Atlas Copco’s range of hydraulic attachments is the Hydro Magnet, a range of profitable tools for recycling plants, scrapyards and the demolition industry.

HM 2000 F
Hydro Magnets enable valuable iron and steel to be separated quickly and easily from concrete waste for subsequent recycling. Simply installed on the existing grapple or shear installation, they require no extra generator or electro cable on the carrier. 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.

Shorter cycles reduce fuel consumption
Atlas Copco’s digital generator control technology gives a magnetization and demagnetization process cycle that is up to 25% shorter than conventional magnet controllers. This, in turn, means lower fuel consumption. 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.

Compact, durable design, easy to work with
All key components of the Hydro Magnet are integrated into a compact design. A hermetically sealed steel case protects the magnet coil against mechanical impacts and humidity, and an external Hardox steel ring protects against wear. The multi-functional diagnostic panel in a waterproofed body indicates current working status and potential faults for trouble-shooting.

Reduced equipment damage on the job site
Collecting ferrous material remaining in the demolition bulk using Hydro Magnets not only means more profit, it also reduces risk of damage to crushers, conveyor belts, tyres and other equipment.
