Magnetic Separation

Magnets are the first defence against stray metal particulates for every product line. They’re effective, low-cost, and can be fitted virtually anywhere. Most applications use ceramic, alnico, or rare-earth magnets; ceramic and alnico being cheaper and rare-earth being more effective.

Drawer Magnets

Drawer magnets are so-called because the cylinders pull out like drawers. Pneumatic or manual describe the method by which the cylinders are discharged, and standard or self-cleaning refers to how they are cleared of contaminants. Standard cleaning means wiped by hand and self-cleaning systems allow contaminants to fall after leaving a magnetic field. These terms are used across applications of magnetic separation.


The FF Series is designed for free-flowing product applications, excels in high temperatures, and can support 10,000 lb loads. It features single-motion cleaning magnets and comes with various options; an internal No-Spillslide gate and purge hopper for messless cleaning, a dump tube for load clearing, and a liquid port for easy resin coloration or temperature monitoring. There are low-profile models and others designed for fine-grained and dry resins.


HF Drawer Magnets are larger versions of the FF Series. They flow bulk product over bar magnets and come in any style: manual standard cleaning, manual self-cleaning, pneumatic self-cleaning, and pneumatic self-cleaning.


Drum magnets are self-cleaning, come in three different rare earth options, and allow high-volume throughput of high-contaminant product without the need for cleaning or interrupted product flow.
Drum Magnets allow product to flow freely over a circular drum, falling off naturally at one point with contaminants being discharged by the magnets at another. Cleats are attached to the rotating drum to increase surface area, and carry product out of the magnetic field where it falls into the receptacle.

Plate Magnets

Plate magnets are designed for use in chutes and pneumatic conveying for coarse, fluffy, and other flow-resistant products. Product flows freely over the magnetic surface, typically sloped 30-60°, with enough space that it doesn’t bridge. The tapered surface protects against contaminant wipe-off in rapid-flow applications.


Isolated plate magnets come in a variety of shapes, sizes and installation options. They are designed to be integrated directly into your pre-existing equipment or to replace current, under-performing solutions.


Hump magnets are sloped chutes designed for ideal use of their contained plate magnets. They handle gravity, moderate positive and negative pressures, and come with self-cleaning features and metal-detectable gaskets and grommets.


Enclosed pipe magnets allow unobstructed dry product flow in gravity and pneumatically fed applications. Magnets for gravity-fed applications can be angled as much as 60°, and pneumatic conveying solutions are operable at up to 15 psi.


Magnetic liquid traps remove ferrous tramp metal from liquid processing and conveying lines. The plate style is designed for viscous and fibrous liquids, but there is also a cartridge style designed for non-fibrous applications.

Specialty Solutions

Wedge Magnets

Wedge magnets are primarily for protecting pellet mills and particulate-processing equipment from damage from tramp metal. They’re placed in narrow, vertical, or steeply inclined chutes because they need to be cleaned manually and should be easily accessible.

Torpedo magnets

Torpedo magnets were designed to protect plastic molding machines and are suspended in the center of a JIT loader’s glass tube.

Bunting TurboGrate

The TurboGrate employs a rotating grate magnet and flow-assist features to separate metal from especially flow-resistant product. It can be customized to fit your application and is available in a self-cleaning option.
