Applicable for horizontal or vertical orientation in dilute-phase pneumatic systems, Industrial Magnetics’ self-cleaning pneumatic line housing is suitable for processing dry, powder and granular materials. The sealed unit eliminates line pressure drops and surges, is leakproof up to 15 psi, and the self-cleaning feature eliminates the need for operator-required cleaning of metal contamination. The pneumatic line housing incorporates a series of 1-in. dia. 50MgOe rare earth, Needox coated tubes on staggered centers. This configuration ensures that all product flowing through the housing makes repeated contact with the magnets. The housing can be used ahead of processing equipment and bulk load-out stations to ensure product quality and protect machinery from tramp metal damage.
