Self-Cleaning Pneumatic Line Housing

February 22, 2011
Industrial Magnetics Inc.This self-cleaning, pneumatic line housing for magnetic separation in dilute-phase pneumatic systems is designed specifically for pneumatic line applications. The sealed unit eliminates line pressure drops and surges, is leak-proof up to 15 PSI, and the self-cleaning feature eliminates the need for operator-required cleaning of metal contamination. Based on the drawer-in-housing platform, it incorporates a series of 1- in.-diam, 50MgOe rare-earth, Nedox coated tubes on staggered centers, versus a single, center-flow cartridge circuit often prescribed for pneumatic line systems. This configuration ensures that all product flowing through the housing makes repeated contact with the magnets. The resulting capture rate of ferrous and weakly magnetic stainless contaminants far exceeds any other magnetic separator available for this type of application.
