New Cleaning Options on Suspended Permanent Magnets

For Immediate Release: Posted On 8/19/2009 By Industrial Magnetics, Inc.

IMI offers several new cleaning options for their “manual clean” line of Suspended Permanent Magnetic Separators (SPMC’s) designed for separation of ferrous metal from a variety of over-the-belt conveyor applications.

Manual Clean models require the operator to routinely clean the magnet of collected tramp metal in order to ensure maximum operating efficiency and to prevent any collected metal from re-entering the product stream. The following cleaning options are designed to assist the operator in this process; Swiper Bar, Slider Plate, Hand Crank Slider Plate and Air-Actuated Slider Plate.

Swiper Bar: Stainless Steel, L-shaped bar which the operator pulls across the face of the magnet to remove collected tramp metal.

Slider Plate: Stainless Steel, roller guided slider plate that covers the face of the magnet during operation and pulls out for easy removal of collected metal when cleaning.

Hand Crank Slider Plate: Utilizes a hand-crank, chain and sprocket for removing the stainless steel slider plate from the face of the magnet when cleaning.

Air-Actuated Slider Plate: Utilized an air-actuated cylinder to remove the stainless steel slider plate from the face of the magnet when cleaning
