Chute magnet ML

The inline chute magnet (because of its form also sometimes called “lantern” or external pole magnet) is designed for separation of small ferromagnetic particles from materials of worse bulk and pouring properties (such as cereals, flour, powder, sawdust etc.) that could clog the traditional magnetic grate separators.

We deliver the chute magnet in a stainless steel housing that is to be connected to a pipeline in order to become its integral part. At the separator inlet there is a solid steel dispersion cone that disperses the material flow over the magnetic plates (placed at the inner parts of the separator doors) and ensures a high effectiveness of the separation process.

The magnetic plate separator is easy to clean and it is not necessary to scrub off the captured ferromagnetic particles.  The transparent checking windows on both sides of the separator enable permanent optical inspection of the contamination of the magnetic plates. The standard application of ferrite magnets arranges for nearly unlimited working life, however if you need higher magnetic force we recommend that the magnetic plate separator is fitted with extremely powerful neodymium NdFeB magnets from rare earth ores. In order to ensure a quick and easy connection, the separator housing is standardly ended by flanges (standard type, Jacob quick-connect fasteners or flanges according to client's needs) in diameters from 100 to 300 mm (but we can adjust the connection type as well as its size to client's requirements).


The ML LUX is the premium SOLLAU product in the field of the chute magnets. From similar competitive products, it differs in several exceptional technical solutions:

  • The magnetic door is placed on slides, making separator’s cleaning very easy (despite the considerable mass - especially at large-diameter separators – the magnetic cores can be easily handled even by women).
  • The separator is cleaned in two-steps – first, the sliding door assembly will be moved to the first position, then the magnetic cores will be pushed off to the next position and the ferromagnetic particles accumulated on the surface of the stainless cover plates fall off.  
  • There are small containers under the magnetic door in which, when cleaning the separator, the separated ferromagnetic material is collected.
  • Besides the standard center diverter, this magnetic separator is equipped with a special additional dispersion prism in order to achieve the maximum efficiency of magnetic separation. This gadget is inserted inside the separator and it repeatedly guides the material onto the magnetic plates (in case of poorly penetrable materials or if an extremely high production capacity is needed, the special dispersion profile can be quickly and smoothly removed from the device).

Optionally this model can be also delivered in a fully automatic version.

This separator of the proven standard construction has ferrite or neodymium magnetic cores. At the separator inlet there is a center diverter that disperses the material flow over the magnetic plates (placed at the inner parts of the separator doors) and ensures a high effectiveness of the separation process. When cleaning the separator, the covering stainless steel plates are lifted off from the magnets’ surface and the trapped ferromagnetic contaminants fall off spontaneously. To ensure a permanent visual inspection of the separation process, the device is equipped with large double-sided sight glasses.

The split-flow magnet ML EKO is an economical, but fully functional alternative to the standard chute magnets. The main difference - compared to the common plate magnets - rests in location of the wedge-shaped magnetic core (covered by a stainless steel jacket) in the middle of the separator (i. e. directly in the material flow). That is why this separator is not equipped with a dispersion cone in its upper part. However, there are deflectors arranged in several rows on the lateral separator’s sides, repeatedly guiding the material flow to the central magnetic core and ensuring a high efficiency of the separation process. In the course of cleaning, the door with the attached magnetic core is lifted off first, then the stainless covering is moved aside from the magnet and the ferromagnetic particles trapped on the protective cover fall off spontaneously. So, in spite of the cost-effective solution, also this model is equipped both with an easy-cleaning system (so there is no laborious manual removing or scraping the caught Fe impurities) and a good-sized sight glass for the optical control of the material flow and the separation results.

The external pole magnet separator finds use in food, pharmaceutical, chemical, wood and ceramic industries.


Extra value added

Magnetic force (induction) generated by the extremely strong permanent magnets from rare earth ores does not let through any unwanted ferromagnetic impurities – and that is why the application options of our products are nearly unlimited (they find their use in chemical, plastic, automotive, building and pharmaceutical industries, food processing, mining etc.).

Our company goal is not only to manufacture and deliver a product, but above all to find and offer an exact solution satisfying the requirements and needs of just YOUR company. In these days of rapid changes in technology it is very difficult to keep up with the latest trends even in the field of your own activity, not to mention other industrial or foreign branches. And that is why we offer you our technical support based on our know-how and our experience. We hope that you - as well as our present clients - will also appreciate our assistance with solving problems regarding the separation of magnetic particles from your products, that we will help to protect your expensive machinery and that our solutions will make your production process even more fluent. If you are looking for a solution of a problem with separation or detection of ferromagnetic impurities in your goods, do not hesitate to contact us. We can help you.

Free magnet audit

Free magnet audit is an exceptional service thatSollau_serviceman.jpg

  • checks the function of the magnetic separator (if the tramp metal is effectively trapped)
  • examines if the magnetic separator fulfils its potential and meets application requirements
  • evaluates the effective pull, the status, the location and the cleanness of the applied magnets

During the audit, we do not only inspect your magnetic equipment, but we also

  • provide training on care and maintenance of magnetic separators
  • suggest the measures to be taken in order to improve the operating efficiency of the magnetic separation related to your products and materials
  • identify the key areas in your company where the application of magnetic separators could enhance the operating performance, reduce operating costs, purify the product or protect processing equipment from metal damages

Audits are conducted by SOLLAU specialists that - in co-operation with the client - develop an audit plan and determine priorities. During the audit, the auditor physically inspects and measures the effective strength of the magnetic separator. He also photographs and documents the state of the device. After the check is completed, the auditor issues a detailed report including the results of the effective strength findings. The inspection results are also important references for internal quality assurance and help analyse biological, chemical and physical hazards (HAACP) as well as ensure high quality production (QA).
