IMI Extends Trade-In/Upgrade on Select Magnetic Separators Through 2013

For Immediate Release: Posted On 12/10/2012 By Industrial Magnetics, Inc.

Industrial Magnetics, Inc.(IMI) has announced an extension on their exclusive, “Trade-In/Upgrade” program for Drawer-in-Housing, Bullet & EP Tube magnetic separators, which allows customers to Trade- In an older, Ceramic or Rare Earth unit, receiving the price they paid for it off a new, state-of-the-art Rare Earth model with better capture and cleaning capabilities.

Today’s Rare Earth magnetic separators are up to 15x stronger than older Ceramic models and have a much higher capture rate on metal fines, shavings & powder contaminants. The newer cleaning styles also offer a longer life expectancy for the magnet, along with superior cleaning performance - making it much easier to gather and remove ferrous metal contamination from the product flow.

The Trade-in/Upgrade program guidelines state that if the old magnetic separator to be traded in is an IMI unit, Industrial Magnetics will allow the customer to keep it, while giving the price they paid for it as a discount off the new model. Otherwise, if the old separator is a non-IMI unit, Industrial Magnetics will pay the freight for the customer to send it in, while giving the original price they paid for it as a discount off the new, stronger model.

"One of our company goals is for our customers to have the "right product for the application", says Dennis O’Leary, IMI’s General Manager. "We want to make it as feasible as possible for our customers to have access to the advancements that have been made in magnetic material and product design over the years."

The Trade- In/Upgrade extension will run through November 30, 2013 with shipment required by December 31st, 2013. For additional details on the Trade- In/Upgrade program, please contact IMI at 888.582.0821 or email
