Chute Magnets

MPI’s exclusive Quick-Clean Magnetic Chutes are designed to remove medium to large-size ferrous tramp metal contaminant’s from high-volume product flows in gravity-fed vertical chutes. The MC-Series magnets are ideal for use with heavy product flows which would otherwise bridge or choke if filtered through magnetic grates. Available in a drawer style quick-clean or hinge-mount quick-clean configuration, MPI’s MC-Series magnets are used in many industries including the food, feed, chemical and grain to improve product quality and protect equipment such as milling, processing and packaging.

The product stream flows between two large and powerful permanent magnets located on either side of the chute. There a center diverter directs the product flow towards the two magnetic faces, which are stepped to minimize tramp metal wash-off. As tramp metal contaminant’s come in contact with the magnetic field they attached themselves to the magnetic face. After the product stream is terminated the Quick-Clean drawer assembly opens to safely remove the collected tramp metal from the product stream to a disposal area outside the chute.
