Reversable cross-line separator, which can be placed perpendicularly above the flow of material to be separated. The magnet in its centre ensures the constant magnetic field. In terms of being economical, the constant magnetism is more cost-efficient, as it requires no electricity. Magnetic particles jump up from the material flow, from where the upper line carries it to where it is no longer under the magnet and where the particles fall off. It is advisable to use it with low iron content material. Upper magnetic separators allow the highest efficiency of dissemination of any ferro-magnetic material of any size. Permanent magnetic apparatuses placed above carrier bands possess automatized bands for self-cleaning or manually cleaned, detachable plastic rugs.
