Eriez has expanded its grate magnet product line with the easy-to-clean Round Spout Magnetic Separators.
These separators feature a lower profile streamlined design that is half the height of standard units, eliminating the need for square-to-round adapters on the inlet and outlet ports, allowing easier inline installation and more efficient flow of material.
The separators are available with manual or automatic easy-to-clean functionality. The manual design provides a push/pull operation to strip accumulated tramp metal from the grates without physically handling the magnet. The automatic version uses a set of pneumatic cylinders to clean the magnetic grates at the touch of a pushbutton or timer control.
Eriez Separation product manager Chris Ramsdell said, “Keeping a magnet clean ensures peak performance. The design allows operators can quickly remove accumulated tramp iron. The automatic system also means it can be installed in hard-to-reach places while cleaning the magnet at the push of a button.”
Round Spout Separators use permanent magnetic grate magnets to remove ferrous contamination in hoppers, chutes, floor openings and other applications for dry and free flowing bulk materials. These powerful magnets are made to fit round chutes and the low-profile design enables installation in areas where vertical space is at a premium.
Customers can select from ceramic or rare earth magnets, giving them the ability to choose the ideal level of magnetic protection for the specific application. Swing bolt construction offers easy access to magnets. Sanitary construction is also an option.
