Pneumatic Line Magnet
  1. Maximum tramp metal retention:
    • Seven (7) magnetic poles ensure maximum product exposure to a magnetic field and tramp metal holding surface area
    • Poles are raised to ensure that captured tramp metal is retained between cleanings holding it outside of direct product flow eliminating potential “wash off”
    • 52-55 MGOe rare earth magnetic cartridge
  2. Easy clean design with removable magnetic core allows the magnet to operate at maximum performance between cleanings. To clean:
    • Unlatch clamps, open door and turn magnet 90 degrees
    • Pull magnet cartridge towards operator until removed from the housing. With magnet removed, tramp metal will fall onto the housing door for collection.
    • Replace magnet cartridge, turn 90 degrees to lock back into place and clamp system closed
  3. Sani-TIGHT Seal™ Gasket:
    • Type: Compression style “O-ring” cord gasket (Optional metal detectable)
    • Sealing plate: ½” thick machined stainless channel
    • 100% Positive seal, cannot be over-compressed
    • Sanitary: Gasket can be removed and replaced for wash-down, no adhesive required
  4. DE-STA-CO clamps:
    • Quick and easy access to inspect and clean magnet
    • Maintains positive seal during operation and does not allow for over tightening

Designed for operating pressures of 15 PSI

  1. Hinged access door:
    • Support provides safe and lightweight inspection for operators
  2. Various cart and connection systems available:
    • Available in various cart and connection designs to fit any application

pneumatic line magnet

MPI Pneumatic Line Magnets are easy to install in vertical or horizontal piping. A quick-clean removable magnet element allows for rapid and easy removal of tramp metal. MPI’s raised pole design prevents metal “wash-off” contrary to other smooth surface models. Typical applications include powder or granular food products, pharmaceuticals, plastics and chemicals conveyed at high speeds in low density, high-air systems.
