IMI Receives Patent on Pneumatic Line Housing Magnetic Separator

IMI recently received a patent on their innovative Pneumatic Line Housing magnetic separator.

The Pneumatic Line Housing incorporates a series of 1-in.-diam, 50 MgOe rare-earth magnetic tubes on staggered centers, versus a single, center-flow cartridge circuit often chosen for pneumatic line processing. This configuration ensures that all product flowing through the housing makes repeated contact with the magnets. The resulting capture rate of contaminants exceeds any other magnetic separator available for this application.

IMI’s newly patented (U.S. Patent No. 8,474,629) self-cleaning model is a sealed unit that eliminates line pressure drops and surges, is leak-proof up to 15 PSI, and eliminates the need for manual removal of metal contamination. It is ideal for hard-to-reach locations and is suitable for processing dry, powder, and granular materials, as well as in automated processing operations. It 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.
