FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Q. How do I choose what size lifting magnet I need?
A. Refer to the load ratings and power tab which identifies capacities. If you have any questions, just call us!
Q. Do you have all sizes of lifting magnets in stock?
A. Yes, we try to always have units in stock for immediate shipment.
Q. Can these units ship by air?
A. Yes, they are packed according to required guidelines for shipping magnets.
Q. Do your lifting magnets have safety features?
A. Yes, all units have locking handles and a 3x safety rating.
Q. What is the lifting magnet made of?
A. The magnet itself is a Rare Earth, Neodinium Magnet encased in a steel/alloy housing.
Q. Do lifting magnets work with paint?
A. Yes. You may need to move up one size to accommodate the coating thickness if it’s more than 1 mil but otherwise the size should remain constant
Q. Do lifting magnets work on round steel as well as flat?
A. Yes, our lifting magnets have ratings for both plate and round steel.
Q. Will the magnets work on waffle patterns?
A. Yes but you will need to move up to the next larger size
Q. Do I need one or two lifting magnets for my application?
A. If the weight is in the required range but the steel is longer than the stated maximum safety length, you would need two units on a spreader bar.
Q. Are the bottoms flat or curved?
A. The bottoms are convex so they can accommodate both flat and round steel per the weights shown on the chart
Q. What does a 3x safety rating really mean?
A. It means that under perfect conditions, which rarely exist, the magnets will hold 3x their rated loads. In other words, the steel would have to be perfectly clean, flat and within the dimensional requirements shown on the chart. This is a “safety” rating used to insure that users don’t overstep the limitations of the magnets.
Q. Can you use these under water?
A. Yes, water does not damage them or decrease magnetic field. Salt water will however, corrode them over time.
