Magnetic separator

March 1, 2011




The S+S Magbox Autoclean magnetic separator has magnet rods arranged in staggered vertical layers; each rod has an effective power of 12,000 Gauss for the separation of slightly magnetized stainless steel particles from the product flow. The separator features a rustproof, stainless steel, wear-resistant housing and a pre-programmed PLC controller with optional user interface. Cleaning is performed automatically by applying compressed air to the magnet cores that are transported to the cleaning area in their stainless steel casings. Some of the magnet rods always remain at their operating position during the cleaning cycle to guarantee separation of magnetic contaminants in continuous production processes. The unit complies with HACCP requirements and is certified according to ATEX zone 22 directives.
