BOYNE CITY—Industrial Magnetics Inc. announced an improvement of the holding strength of its Rare Earth Bullet Magnet separator, designed to capture ferrous metal contaminants in powder and bulk, pneumatic-line processing applications.
The enhanced Bullet circuit incorporates an optimized magnetic design that the company said offers the most effective solution to capture ferrous pieces, as well as smaller fines and weakly magnetic contaminants in a pneumatic line application.
The Bullet’s industry-unique stripper collar, used to clean captured metal contamination from the device, also contributes to the holding strength and effectiveness of the magnet. Similar magnet designs on the market use a cleaning sleeve over the entire magnetic circuit, thereby creating an “air gap” and a subsequent loss of holding value.
Ideal for dilute phase pneumatic systems, typical Bullet magnet applications include processing of dry, powder and granular materials. It can be used ahead of processing equipment and bulk load out to ensure product purity and protect machinery from tramp metal damage.
