Eriez Permanent Plate Magnets, the workhorses of magnetic separation, provide dependable and economical solutions to problems associated with tramp iron contamination in processing lines. Plate Magnets installed in chutes, spouts, ducts, pipes, or suspended over conveyors remove tramp iron to help prevent costly shut-downs associated with machinery damage… prevent spark–caused fires and explosions… prevent product contamination and improve product purity.
The compact design of these powerful magnetic separators makes them simple and easy to install. Standard installations involve hinged models for swing–open cleaning. Plates are also available without hinges for stationary or suspended installations. The magnetic field penetrates the product flow and grabs tramp iron as it passes by the Plate. The concentrated field holds tramp iron tightly to the magnet surface until removed during the cleaning process.
