The in-line magnetic separator 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.

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.

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.

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.

The bullet magnet separator finds application e. g. in the agricultural, pharmaceutical, wood-processing, plastics, chemical and ceramic industry.

e magnetic separator (with integrated dispersion cone), the cone rotates 180° and the magnetic cores are pulled out. After removing the magnetic cores, the ferromagnetic contaminants captured up till now on the central and lower part of the cone release on their own spontaneously.

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.

The tube magnetic separator finds application e.g. in the agricultural, pharmaceutical, wood-processing, chemical and ceramics industry.

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).
