The Slag Deepfield Aluminum Electromagnet (SDA) is one of the most diversified magnets ever produced. Built to withstand intense levels of physical abuse in demanding environments, the SDA can handle everything from highly abrasive scrap and slag to billets, slabs, drop balls, and more. If it’s ferrous and needs to be moved, the SDA Electromagnet can move it. The aluminum version of this magnet weighs less than its copper-wound cousin, the SDC, and is used when crane capacity restrictions are in play. Available in diameters ranging from 48″ to 68″.
