Metal separators

March 8, 2014

IMI separators featuring round magnetic circuitry use 52 grade MgOe rare earth material to capture ferrous and weakly magnetic metal contaminants. Designed for pneumatic applications, the Bullet magnet has a nominal pull strength of 22 lb. on a 1/2-in. ball. The LTH large tube housing has a 3-in. OD circuit. Created for product with challenging flow characteristics and a tendency to bridge, it pulls 22 lb. on a 1/2-in. ball.
