Portable magnetic separation

August 1, 2011




Industrial Magnetics’ portable magnetic separation solution, the cart-mounted Pneumatic Line Housing (PLH), improves product purity and protects processing equipment from tramp metal damage; its portable design allows it to be used in multiple applications within the same facility. Incorporating a series of 1-in.diameter, 50 MgOe rare-earth magnetic tubes on staggered centers, the unit’s configuration ensures that all product flowing through the housing makes repeated contact with the magnets. Available in EZ-Clean or Self-Cleaning configurations for easy removal of collected metal, the cart-mounted system also incorporates a removable screen that is available in different mesh sizes to catch non-magnetic lumps of material. Standard line sizes range from three to 10 inches in diameter with modified and custom designs available upon request.
