From the framework of its drawer-in-housing platform, IMI introduces the pneumatic line housing (PLH). Instead of a single, center-flow cartridge circuit, the PLH incorporates a series of 1-in. diam. 50 MGOe Rare Earth tubes on staggered centers. This ensures that all product has repeated contact with the magnets. The holding strength of the bullet magnet has been improved with a newly introduced stripper collar that is used to wipe metal contamination from the magnet. This addition has increased the ability to capture and hold metal fines and weakly magnetic steel by almost 30%.
