Magnetic grates

By Plant Engineering Staff September 29, 2006

The company’s single-skinned tube design helps remove iron with a stainless steel split ring sandwiched between two floating wipers. As the individual banks cycle tramp iron, it is stripped from the tubes outside the product zone. The tramp metal is then discharged through a small chute at the front of the housing. Typical units include a rectangular housing that holds multiple rows of tube magnets that attract and hold fine ferrous contamination as material cascades around the magnets. Options include adapters to transition product flow into the grate housing, additional magnet rows for specific separation efficiency requirements and vibrators to help products flow quickly through the grate housing. Custom designs are available.
