MuscleMate, a Tramac Corporation brand, has a new line of hydraulic powered magnets. The TMAG series of magnets are available in four sizes ranging from 770 to 6,600 lbs. (349 to 2,994 kg) with flow ranges of 4 to 12 gpm (15 to 45 Lpm). The TMAG can be installed on any type of carrier that has a hydraulic source available. The generator is housed in the assembly and requires no additional plumbing. Mounting is fast and easy using a chain or bracket, according to the manufacturer.

The TMAG is a useful tool for concrete recycling, removal of metals at wood grinders, rebar removal on bridge deck demolition and general site clean-up. Lifting capacities are a function of the carriers’ specifications.

The TMAG magnet can be activated by a breaker button or foot pedal. Demagnetizing occurs when the flow is stopped.

The TMAG has built-in protection to avoid overheating and excessive flow and the housing’s construction provides protection to the internal mechanisms, reducing downtime and maintenance.
