Why Choose Intell-I-Mag?
Traditional magnetic separation equipment has been “dumb”, operators have to shut down their equipment and check them at set intervals. Intell-I-Mag is the first magnetic separator that is “intelligent”. It tells you when the magnet needs to be cleaned, or, just as important, when it doesn’t.
How it works
Intell-I-Mag monitors tramp metal saturation levels on the working surface of the magnetic separator in real time. The magnetic separator has sensors embedded into the separator that measure the strength of the magnetic field. These sensors report data collected in real-time. Intell-I-Mag can be programmed to clean the separator automatically when it reaches the user-designated saturation levels or alert plant operators that the magnet needs to be cleaned.
