MPI Drawer Magnets — Designed and Engineered for the Most Effective Magnetic Separation
MPI helps you achieve your food safety plan and minimize the risk of a product recall by providing best practice knowhow and equipment to detect and remove metal contaminants. MPI’s magnetic drawers are engineered to provide maximum separation of metal contaminants ranging from fine ferrous particles to large pieces of tramp iron, in a variety of processing products including powders, granular and liquid materials. MPI designs a full range of manual clean, quick-clean, self-clean, automated self-clean and continuous flow self-cleaning magnetic drawer separation equipment to meet today’s high standards of product quality.
MPI Drawer Magnets offer the highest level of magnetic protection in the industry. Our staggered, tiered tube magnetic drawer configurations ensure direct contact of magnetic tubes in bulk, free-flowing product streams. MPI’s Drawer Magnet designs also offer the safest cleaning method on the market, preventing operator injury.
- Proprietary design prevents captured metal from being cleaned in product stream
- Exclusive Sani-TIGHT Seal gasket eliminates leaks and frequent replacements, and reduces dry time for adhesives
- Patent pending sanitary design available
- Our exclusive cleaning designs reduce maintenance and effectively remove tramp metal
- Optional 1” and 3” tube combination configurations
How Drawer Magnets Work
Product flows through one, two or more rows of 1” or 3” diameter magnetic tubes, designed to create an extremely effective magnetic circuit. The rows of magnetic tubes are staggered to maximize magnetic filtration as the product flows through the housing. Tramp metal contaminants move to the underside of the magnetic tubes eliminating tramp metal “wash-off.” Cycling the magnets pulls the magnetic tubes through non-metallic stripper assemblies, cleaning the magnetic tubes and depositing the metal contaminants outside the product stream into a collection tray. There are many options to accommodate a wide range of application requirements.
