Rotary Style Drawer-in-Housing Magnet

January 24, 2011
Industrial Magnetics Inc.This rotary style drawer-in-housing magnet was designed to remove ferrous metal from powder and bulk processed products that have difficult flow characteristics and a tendency to bridge and choke when using traditional, stationary tube-style magnetic separators. The magnet is ideal for products that have a higher moisture content or particle size, such as flours, cake mixes, or corn starch, and require a high degree of product purity. The RotoDrawer magnet features a cylindrical configuration of Rare Earth magnetic tubes that continually rotate through a gravity-fed product stream. The rotational design of the magnet, as well as unique splitter bars that serve to further break up any clumps, keep the flow moving through the housing while capturing any ferrous metal contamination and purifying the product. The unit is available in EZ-Clean or Self-Clean designs to simplify the removal of collected metal and prevent any metal wash-off back into the product stream. Standard sizes range from 8x8 in.- to 18x18-in.-inlets and outlets, with custom designs and sizes available to fit exact application requirements.
