The IMI large tube housing magnet is engineered for challenging processing applications where sticking, galling and product bridging are prevalent. Incorporating a 3-in. diameter 52 Grade Rare Earth magnetic circuit and 22 lb. of nominal pull value on a 1/2-in. ball, it captures smaller ferrous fines and weakly magnetic contaminants. The EZ Clean version requires an operator to unlatch the front door and pull out the drawer of tubes, while the self-cleaning solenoid-activated model can be controlled from a remote location.
