For Immediate Release:
New Self-Cleaning Pneumatic Line Housing
Posted On 6/10/2009 By Industrial Magnetics, Inc.
Industrial Magnetics, Inc. announces their new, Self-
Cleaning, Pneumatic Line Housing for magnetic
separation in dilute-phase pneumatic systems. An
industry first, this self-cleaning unit is designed
specifically for pneumatic line applications. The
sealed unit eliminates line pressure drops and surges,
is leak-proof up to 15 PSI and the self-cleaning
feature eliminates the need for operator-required
cleaning of metal contamination.
Based on its highly successful Drawer-In-Housing
platform, the Pneumatic Line Housing from Industrial
Magnetics Inc. incorporates a series of 1 in. dia.,
50MgOe rare-earth, Nedox® coated tubes on staggered
centers, versus a single, center-flow cartridge
circuit often prescribed for pneumatic line
systems. This configuration ensures that all
product flowing through the housing makes repeated
contact with the magnets. The resulting capture rate
of ferrous and weakly magnetic stainless contaminants
far exceeds any other magnetic separator available for
this type of application.
Ideal for horizontal or vertical orientation in
dilute-phase pneumatic systems, the Self-cleaning,
Pneumatic Line Housing is suitable for processing dry,
powder, and granular materials. The Nedox® coated
tubes provide protection from abrasive particulates
and corrosive materials and assist in keeping product
with bridging and clogging tendencies from adhering to
the magnetic tubes.
The Pneumatic Line Housing can be used ahead of
processing equipment and bulk load-out stations to
ensure product purity and protect machinery from tramp
metal damage and is also available in a cart mounted
design for portable bulk unloading.
