Magnetic Tube Magnet

PDF

MPI’s magnetic tubes are commonly used to remove small to medium size ferrous tramp metal contaminant from a variety of product streams. Typical uses include removing metallic grit from hydraulic reservoirs to minimize wear on the machine’s seals and bushings. Another typical use is for removing unwanted ferrous contaminant’s in food and chemical processing systems, thus improving product quality standards.

The product stream flows around one or more 1” diameter magnetic tubes located within the product streams that are attached to their housing via the tapped end holes. As tramp metal contaminants are captured, they move to the underside of the tubes, eliminating tramp metal “wash-off”. Magnetic Tubes are easy to install and clean. They offer an efficient and economical ferrous metal filtration protection of your processing equipment. The tubes may be used as individual units or part of multiple row arrangements.

MPI can manufacture your tubes with dead space on one or both ends to make metal removal easier. Note that there will be no magnetic protection in the dead space area and therefore should be located outside of the product flow area.

  • Dead space length:
    • No dead space, full magnetic tube (standard)
    • 2” dead space (slightly magnetic at end of the tube)
    • 4” dead space (no residual magnetism at end of the tube)
  • Dead space location:
    • Not applicable
    • End 1
    • End 2
    • Both ends
