Plate Magnets are ideal for angled chute applications where product degradation is a concern. Take a look at our large number of plate magnets that range in size and design depending on your application.
Flush Face Plate Magnets deliver optimum tramp metal separation performance when used in above-the-flow chute or belt applications. When installed over the material flow, these magnets deliver continuous magnetic protection for down stream processing equipment.
Exposed Pole Plate Magnets are engineered to deliver high performance tramp metal separation in low to medium volume applications. These applications are for below-the-flow installations where the product flows over the magnet face.
Spout Plate Magnets feature a diverter to provide maximum tramp metal separation and superior wash-off protection for high volume, below-the-flow applications. The diverter protects collected metal from being washed back into the product flow, while preventing product degradation. Several strengths are available in Ceramic and Rare Earth designs to meet the requirements of difficult applications.
EZ-Clean and Self-Cleaning Spout Magnets have a stripper pan cleaning mechanism that allows the collected tramp metal to be easily released. The EZ-Clean Spout magnet is operated by unclamping the magnet from the chute and pulling the magnet opened by hand. As the magnet is pulled open the stripper pan separates from the magnet, allowing the metal to fall off of the pan's face. The Self-Cleaning Spout Magnet utilizes air cylinders to swing the magnet and the stripper pan away from the chute allowing for remote cleaning of the spout magnet.
