Industrial Magnetics Inc. has released the newest version of its SimpleClean RotoDrawer magnetic housing that offers improved ergonomics and an easier cleaning experience for the operator. The RotoDrawer rotary-style magnet was designed to capture ferrous metal contaminants from gravity fed, powder and bulk processed products that have difficult flow characteristics and a tendency to bridge or choke when using traditional, stationary, tube-style magnetic separators, such as cake mixes, flours, or corn starch. Featuring a motorized, cylindrical configuration of Rare Earth magnetic tubes that continually rotate through the product stream, the RotoDrawer keeps the flow moving through the housing, while capturing any ferrous metal contaminants and purifying the product. The new, SimpleClean design gives the operator easy access to the magnets to perform recommended, routine removal of collected metal to prevent re-contamination of the product stream. The ergonomic design of the magnetic drawer allows it to weightlessly glide open on a fixed track and smoothly rotate into vertical orientation. Once in cleaning position, the indexing magnetic tube assembly brings each tube to the forward position, allowing the operator to wipe collected metal downward into a catch bin, without having to bend or squat to reach posterior tubes. Standard sizes range from 8x8 in. to 18x18 in. inlets and outlets, with custom designs and sizes available to fit your exact application requirements.
