The Evolution of Magnetic Sweepers for Picking up Steel Shot

Picking up Steel Shot Just Got Faster & Easier!

Bluestreak’s Continuous Discharge line of magnetic sweepers are the evolution in magnetic sweepers that are designed to pick up steel shot because they are faster, more efficient and easier to use.

They are designed with Bluestreak’s patented “Ripwhirl Technology” to continuously clean shot off the magnetic drum and deposit it into an on board removable debris tray as you push the sweeper. Because the shot is continually being cleaned off the magnet as you move the magnet forward, the magnet operates at 100% full strength all the time.

When the debris tray is full, you can see it’s full, and you just grab it and dump it. If you do end up spilling steel shot all over the magnetic sweeper it doesn’t matter because the magnet is contained in the sealed cylindrical drum, you can dump shot all over it.

The Problem with Traditional Style Magnetic Sweepers.

Traditional style magnetic sweepers with debris release levers are often used by shot blasters but they are not designed for the shot application and so they are often inefficient and tiring to use for shot blasting.

When using these sweepers the operator pushes the sweeper until the bottom is so full of steel shot that the person starts seeing that it just isn’t picking shot up anymore.  They then stop picking up shot and push the magnetic sweeper onto a piece of cardboard or some other thing and pull the release lever to dump the steel shot. Then they pick up the cardboard with the steel shot on it and dump it back into some bin or hopper.

The problem is that the sweeper gradually loses pickup power as it gets packed full of shot.  Less and less shot gets picked up and the operator is never sure when the magnet needs cleaning off. The operator usually has to go over the same area several times in a haphazard manner to get 100%  of the shot.

Another problem is that the steel shot gets on top of the magnet and prevents the magnet housing from sitting properly and flatly on the pan separating the magnet from the shot thus putting even more distance between the magnet and the steel shot and thereby reducing the magnet effectiveness as more and more shot accumulates on top of the magnet.

That is why these traditional style magnetic sweepers do not offer the best solution for shot blasters.

The Best Solution for Picking Up Steel Shot is a Continuous Discharge System

Continuous Discharge Magnets are designed to solve the problems associated with picking up shot. Continuous Discharge Sweepers solve the problems by: 

  • Always Operating at Maximum Pickup Strength  – Because they use the “Ripwhirl Technology” the shot is continuously being discharged off the magnet so the sweepers have 100% pickup power and are cleaning at 100% power at all times instead of the gradually reducing pickup power of standard sweepers.
  • Reducing Operator Fatigue – Using these sweepers makes picking up shot much easier and less tiring. All the shot collects in an on board debris bin that makes it easy to see when it’s full and easy to remove and dump out.
  • Having a Completely Sealed Magnet –  The sweepers have a completely sealed magnet housing to ensure the magnetic sweeper stays effective at all times, instead of the regular magnets that end up less effective because they are covered in steel shot.
  • Using Super Strong Rare Earth Magnets – The continuous discharge sweepers use Super Strong N42 Rare Earth Magnets that are permanently charged instead of ceramic magnets.

Demonstration of the Atmos Continuous Discharge System

A Closeup view of the Ripwhirl Design Continuously Discharging the Shot off the Magnet

The maximum lifting height of the Continuous Discharge Magnet Models are as follows;

The Theta
1 inch
The Fission
1 and 3/4 inches
The Atmos
1 and 3/4 inches

Note: The Sweepers will pick up 100% of shot from below the wheels at these heights. They will continue to pick up shot at a decreasing percentage as floor cracks get deeper than these heights.

Super Strong But Light!

The Theta magnetic sweeper is specifically designed for heavy use by shotblasters who need to pick up steel shot of all sizes.

The Theta is light and easy to use so you can get the job done faster. This sweeper is so easy to use that it turns an undesirable job into one that no one minds doing. It’s like using a power circular saw versus a handsaw.

The Theta is much lighter then most conventional sweepers because it uses rare earth magnets. It is only 21 pounds, making for less tiring work.

The Quicker Picker Upper!

The Fission has twice as much rare earth magnets as the Theta Series enabling maximum performance to pickup up steel shot out of expansion joints and cracks.

The Fission tray is twice as big as the Theta Series tray and holds approximately 42lbs of steel shot allowing you to cover a larger area before emptying the tray.

Specifically designed for heavy use by shotblasters and surface preparation operators who need to pick up steel shot.

Flexible Design for Double Duty!

The Atmos magnetic sweeper is designed for flexibility and for heavy use by shot blasters who need to pick up shot of all sizes on larger areas such as on roads, bridges or parking lots.

The Atmos easily converts from a push type magnet to a tow behind magnet simply by flipping the handle. Tow the Atmos behind small vehicles and equipment to cover a lot of ground faster. Or push the Atmos by hand like a regular push type magnet.

The Atmos also features 2 on board Debris Trays rather than just 1 holding more shot so you can pickup more steel shot before emptying the trays. Each tray holds approximately 42 lbs of steel shot.

The Atmos is wider than both the Fission and Theta at 52″ so you can cover more ground faster.
