ERIE, Pennsylvania – ERIEZ has built a second 55-tonne electromagnet, matching the one that is recognized by the Guinness Book of Records as the world’s largest. The original magnet was christened “Big Moe”, and the new one is known affectionately as “Big Moe II”.

Big Moe II, known officially as the SER700, measures 3.8 metres wide, 2.8 metres long and 2.1 metres high. The magnet will be shipped to CODELCO’s Gaby copper mine in northern Chile. The new magnet will be installed to remove tramp metal immediately after the primary crusher. Four other, smaller magnets have also been ordered.

As well as the world’s largest electromagnets, Eriez offers a wide range of magnetic and non-magnetic separators, many of which are specifically geared toward the mineral processing industry. Please visit www.Eriez.com.
