ERIE, PA—Eriez Magnetics' full line of Permanent Plate Magnets is designed to provide dependable and economical solutions to problems associated with fine iron and tramp iron contamination in processing lines.
Permanent plate magnets are the workhorses of magnetic separation, protecting against the dangers of fine iron and tramp iron contamination in processing lines and improving product purity. Plate magnets installed in chutes, spouts, ducts, pipes, or suspended over conveyors remove tramp iron to help prevent costly shutdowns associated with machinery damage, spark-caused fires and explosions and product contamination.
The Eriez Series SD is available in three varieties: Superpower, Maxipower and Rare Earth. The Superpower unit creates a powerful magnetic field that will project two to three inches into a burden to remove large tramp iron from product flows. The Maxipower is designed for extra heavy-duty applications, creating a deep magnetic field that will project three to four inches into a burden to remove both small and large tramp iron. For the toughest applications, Eriez offers the Rare Earth Magnet. The Rare Earth Magnet creates a field so powerful that wash-off is virtually eliminated. The intense field near the Plate surface makes these units ideal for shallow burdens where product purity is the number one priority. These Rare Earth separators have become the standard for food and pharmaceutical applications where tiny, feebly magnetic particles contaminate products.
The Brutepower and SuperBrute Series plate magnets are the most powerful plate magnets available today. The Brutepower is designed to create a deep magnetic field that will project four to five inches into a material burden to remove large damaging tramp iron contamination. It effectively handles extremely difficult tramp iron separation applications such as wood chips processing and sugar cane. The SuperBrute is typically used in suspended applications and is specifically designed to be an economical, space-saving solution for the removal of large tramp iron from deep product flows in restricted areas.
Eriez will also customize magnets for special applications.
