Product Announcement from Industrial Magnetics, Inc.
IMI's plate magnets are designed for magnetic separation in angled chute applications, with either above-the-flow or below-the-flow installation, and are ideal for capturing ferrous tramp metal or metal fines to prevent metal contamination of products and to protect downstream processing equipment from damage.
Plate magnets are common in unimpeded product flow applications or with products that have a dry to slight moisture content such as, powders, granular, leafy, etc.
Due to their tremendously high energy level, Rare Earth magnets are ideal for miniaturized applications.
- They offer high resistance to demagnetization and are recommended for applications with temperature ranges under 200ºF.
- Raw Rare Earth magnets have a dull metallic appearance and tend to be very brittle.
- They can be ground, but caution must be exercised not to crush the material.
- Be aware of possible fire from the dust particles produced from grinding or cutting Rare Earth magnet materials.
