Quick Cleaning Center-Flow Bullet Magnet Improves Conveying Lines

August 30, 2010
The company has developed a new center-flow bullet magnet that is easy to clean. This new design reduces the pressure drop through the housing and can be cleaned in seconds, according to the manufacturer. The new design maintains a 15 psi rating for all types of dilute-phase pneumatic or gravity-flow conveying lines. It also features a one-piece gasket that improves sealing along the production line, which eliminates leaking. The magnets are engineered to remove ferrous fines as well as larger pieces of tramp iron from dry particulates. To achieve optimum contact with the product flow, a bullet-shaped magnet is suspended in the centerline of the housing. This tapered, exposed-pole cartridge has a stainless steel “nose cone” to direct the flow of material around the magnet. The exposed poles provide superior holding force.
