Chute Magnets capture ferrous tramp metal in heavy product flows that would otherwise bridge or choke if filtered through magnetic tubes. Chute Magnets are also well suited for abrasive products that would quickly wear through the thinner walls of tubes.
- Ceramic and rare earth designs with exclusive hybrid available for industry’s highest magnet performance
- Exclusive Sani-TIGHT Seal gasket design eliminates leaks and reduces gasket replacement
- Single step optimizes tramp metal collection and prevents wash-off
How Chute Magnets Work
The product stream flows between two large permanent plate magnets located on either side of the chute. A center diverter directs the product flow towards the working surface of the two plate magnets, which are stepped to minimize tramp metal wash-off.
As tramp metal contaminants come in contact with the magnetic field, they attach themselves to the magnetic face. The cleaning shell or operator safely removes the tramp metal from the product stream to a disposal area outside the chute.
ECO-FLOW | HARCO BRAKE COMPONENTS
When a manufacturer suspects that a drilling operation could cause plugs inside a precision brake component, he knows that the resulting damage will be more costly and require greater action than a simple phone call . . .
SHAKERS | RADAR INDUSTRIES
Like any maintenance supervisor at a busy stamping plant, 30-year manufacturing veteran Mike De Vitt's goal at Radar Industries in Warren, Michigan, is to keep his presses up and running . . .
SHAKERS | TOLEDO TOOL AND DIE
Toledo Tool and Die (TTD), of Toledo OH, approached MPI looking for an improved method to remove scrap from their stamping press. MPI recommended that TTD consider MPI’s M-50 electric shaker . . .
MINI FREE FLOW | GLOBAL FOOD PROCESSOR
When raw materials arrive at a food plant, they can contain many types of contaminants, including metals. Metals find their way into raw materials from the time of harvest through the many material handling processes needed to turn them into a product ready for packaging . . .
BLM | MAJOR MANUFACTURER
Removal of scrap metal is a vital, constant and costly function faced by plant managers worldwide. Untimely removal of scrap can endanger workers and damage machinery . . .
MAGNETIC CHUTE | MAJOR CO-PACKER
Ensuring that there is no cross-contamination, coupled with dustless operation were their biggest concerns . . .
