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.
FF SERIES DRAWER MAGNETS
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-Spill™ slide 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.
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
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
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.
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 were designed to protect plastic molding machines and are suspended in the center of a JIT loader’s glass tube.
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.
