Plate Magnets are used in gravity-fed angled chutes. Single Step and Double Step Plate Magnets are designed to remove tramp metal from your product and eliminate the possibility of wash-off back into the product stream. Stainless steel pole areas maximize the holding power of the magnets. These Plate Magnets are easily installed and are supplied complete with sanitary hinges, latches, and mounting hardware. The strong magnetic field is effective in product streams up to 8” deep.
- In addition to ceramic and rare earth designs, MPI’s exclusive hybrid circuit (Hi-G Hybrid) is available for highest industry performance
- Custom engineered for the material burden depth in your chute, ensuring 100% protection
- Single and double step options optimize tramp metal collection and prevent wash-off
- Options include quick-clean and self-cleaning designs
- 100% Stainless steel enclosed design
- Permanent magnet material – will not demagnetize
- 1” wide uniform sealing flange to prevent product leakage
- Sanitary hinges and latches, included.
- Rugged all-welded construction

How Plate Magnets Work
MPI’s Single Step and Double Step Ceramic Plate Magnets are designed to divert the product stream away from the magnet surface while allowing tramp metal to be magnetically attracted to the magnet’s surface behind the collection steps. Magnetic 400 series stainless steel pole areas maximize the holding power of the magnets. These Plate Magnets are easily installed and are supplied complete with sanitary hinges, latches, and mounting hardware. The hinged mounting design permits quick, easy cleaning of the magnet surface. The strong magnetic field is effective in product streams up to 8” deep.

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 . . .
