Next Generation Hi-G Inline Gravity Flow Drawer Magnet
Highland, MI (May 27, 2016)
MPI is excited to announce the debut of its next generation, patent-pending Hi-G Inline Gravity Flow Drawer Magnet! Used to remove fine metal contaminants in vertical gravity product chutes and spouts, this drawer boasts a sanitary design. The primary difference between MPI’s innovative design and standard drawer magnets is our cutting edge Magnetic Tube Locking System. This allows us to remove all locking fasteners by hand making this a true sanitary and “toolless” design. Disassembly and assembly for processors who require regular wash-down sanitation is quick and easy and the design eliminates the possibility of fasteners and parts being lost or accidentally dropped into the product flow area during cleaning, possibly causing damage to equipment downstream and contaminating product or worse, injuring a consumer.
Strength – The Inline Gravity Drawer offers standard 52 MGOE rare earth magnetic tubes for maximum performance. Our “free-floating” magnet tube design partnered with a robust tracking mechanism makes opening and closing the drawer unbelievably easy. The Inline Gravity Drawer is available in standard single and double tiered staggered magnetic tubes and custom multiple tier models are available upon request.
Superior, Sanitary Clean & Easy, No-Tool Maintenance – Our best-in-industry food-grade silicone gasket offers a permanent seal that virtually eliminates the need to replace gaskets. The gasket is channel set, no adhesive required, so it may be removed and replaced for sanitary wash-down. This drawer also features a magnetic tube locking system that requires no tools to disassemble or reassemble them for inspection and our patent pending three-piece stripper assembly is fixed outside the product flow area so the possibility of tramp being reintroduced into your product flow while cleaning is eliminated. Your primary stripper plate has a compliance fit for the easy removal of large metals while your secondary stripper has an interference fit, completely removing the small metal fines we see left behind with other designs. Our design places all magnetic tubes through single stripper blocks eliminating the cracks and crevices that cause unsanitary conditions in your product flow. The stripper assemblies are strategically spaced apart from one another providing a slight gap between strippers, allowing sanitary to wash down without disassembly. Another benefit besides the dual function stripper design is the sanitary design in the product contact areas of the unit. This product design also allows for easy removal for either maintenance and/or replacement of the strippers without the need for any tools due to the absence of fasteners. Currently all Drawer magnets available regardless of manufacturer require fasteners to hold their stripper device together. This creates an unsanitary condition wherever a fastener is located in the product contact area of the device. Our new “fastener free” design eliminates this unsanitary condition.
