Bullet magnets MT
The in-line magnetic separator MT (because of its interior shape sometimes also called “spout magnet”, “pipeline magnet”, “bullet magnet”, “center-flow magnet”, “cartridge magnet” or “air-vey magnet”) is used to separate ferromagnetic particles from materials of poor bulk (pouring) properties (like granulated feeds, plastic granulate, sawdust, powdered materials in the ceramics industry etc.) that could block or clog classic magnetic grate separators.
Design of the center-flow magnet
This separator consist of a stainless steel housing that, after being connected to the existing pipeline (e. g. by standard or JACOB flanges), becomes an integral part of the pipeline system. At the inlet to the separator body there is a dispersion cone arranging for an even distribution of the material flow. In addition, special guiding strips direct the material flow from the inner wall on the magnetic core (located in the lower part of the central magnetic assembly). Since both the cylindrical magnetic assembly with the nose cone as well as the separator housing are of the round shape, there is ensured an even and continuous material flow. Besides, the round shape of the separator in combination with the dispersion cone and strong ferrite or neodymium magnets make it possible to apply this equipment not only in purely vertical, but also in inclined pipelines.
Which way is the bullet magnet cleaned?
Thanks to the simplified cleaning mechanism (available at smaller versions of the housed bullet magnet), the removal of the captured ferromagnetic contaminants is very simple. When the door with the integrated magnet housing is opened, the cylindrical magnet assembly is turned down and the magnetic cores pulled out. The ferromagnetic contaminants (gathered until then on the surface of the magnet housing) fall off spontaneously. The larger variants of this separator are cleaned manually.
Usually the door of the separator is closed by massive hook fasteners, however, upon special request, it is possible to equip the separator door with e. g. an electromagnetic safety lock.
How does the cartridge magnet work?
As the material moves through the separator, the ferromagnetic contaminants are exposed to a multiple magnetic field, generated by several layers of the central cylindrical magnet assembly. The repeated exposure of the flowing material to the strong magnets results in a relatively high magnetic efficiency of this special separator.
The hinged door can be opened once product flow is stopped - in this way the magnetic bullet is removed from the pipeline and can be wiped to remove the trapped ferrous iron.
As a standard, the door of the separator is equipped with massive hook fasteners, nevertheless upon special request, it is possible to equip the separator door with e.g. an electromagnetic safety lock.
