This paper proposes the magnetic technologies to remove the tramps from the industrial process. The magnets can able to remove the tramps from solids and liquids this will help to separate the tramps from the industrial materials. The tramp is an unwanted material that damages the manufacturing equipments; it must be removed from the raw materials. The magnetic based separators provide a purified product outputs and removing ferrous oxide contamination. The reason for using the magnetic material to separate the traps is it never produce unwanted heat and no need of power supply.
