IMI's Ox® Heavy Duty Drawer-in-Housing unit incorporates design elements that are essential for optimum magnetic separation performance in challenging processing conditions such as, ambient temperature and humidity, bridging, abrasion, corrosion or galling.

The Nedox® coating on the drawer's tubes prevents sticking problems associated with certain products and processing conditions. This allows the cleaning operation to function easier than if the tubes were caked with sticky or moist products. The heavy duty Hydex® wiper seals ensure that all collected metal and product residue is wiped free of the tubes without damaging the seals. The cleaning process for the Ox® can be automated with IMI's proven Self-Cleaning design, or it can be accomplished manually with the EZ-Clean design.
