For Immediate Release:
Magnetic Separation for Highly Abrasive Products
Posted On 10/10/2011 By Industrial Magnetics, Inc.
Industrial Magnetics, Inc. has developed a magnetic
separation solution specifically designed for use with
highly abrasive products in pneumatic transfer
applications to eliminate costly wear and tear on the
The magnetic housing consists of two, door-mounted
magnetic plates positioned on opposing sides of a
stainless steel tube matching the existing diameter of
the processing line. By keeping the magnets on the
outside edge of the product stream, versus center-
stream, the existing flow rate can be maintained,
thereby eliminating wear points within the magnetic
housing. The powerful, dual-magnet design is capable
of reaching through the entire product stream and
capturing metal contaminants from a fast moving flow.
The dual-door design is also advantageous for
cleaning the magnet of collected tramp metal, which is
vital to maintaining maximum effectiveness of the
magnetic separator. Both doors fully open outside of
the product flow giving complete access to the magnet
face and preventing accidental discharge of metal
contaminants back into the processing line.
