The LXDA magnet is manufactured for normal operation for scrap handling. The LXDA offers a great versatility at a reasonable cost. The LXDA type scrap magnet is used on the bigger mobile cranes and excavators which allow greater lifting capacities per lift. The magnet size / weight, and lifting capacities are determined by the machine, the boom style weight limitations, and the product being worked. Most of the manufacturers of the equipment provide technical information of weight limitations each type of machine has with the boom fully extended. That information will determine the size of magnet diameter for the machine based on the weight of the magnet plus the average weight per lift. These magnets are wound with aluminum conductor because aluminum conductor is lighter in weight than copper conductor, which allows the diameter of the magnet to be maximized for the ratio of magnet weight plus material weight per lift. The LXDA has a deeper penetrating flux field which allows a greater lifting capacity per lift.
The LXDA type magnet in the L Series family is used in:
- Scrap yards
- Steel Warehouses
- Loading / Unloading rail cars
- 230 VDC
- Aluminum wound coils
- Fabricated steel construction
- Water resistant, double welded, terminal box design
- Class H insulation
- Conventional 3 legged chain
- Hard surface face on outer and center poles
- 75% Duty Cycle
- 2 Year Limited Warranty
- Optional Hot Service Design Available
Note: The applications’ magnet system must be compatible with the magnet used or it can cause damages to the magnet to the point of failure.
