Magnetic Separators and Tube/Pipe Magnets

The Magnetic Separators and Tube/Pipe Magnets are available from Filquip including manual and automated metal disposal from options for your system.

The automated magnetic separators work by magnetising metals contained in the product flow which become held to the side wall magnet, the side wall magnet flap then opens with the metals still magnetised, with the magnetic flap open over the discharge chute demagnetisation occurs depositing the metals into the waste chute.

The automated magnetic separators come in three standard sizes:

Chute Magnet

  • 200mm x 350mm (Throughput 100 m3/hr)
  • 200mm x 650mm (Throughput 200 m3/hr)
  • 200mm x 950mm (Throughput 300 m3/hr)

The manual tube/Pipe Magnets are designed to intercept metals contained in the product flow and hold them to the magnetic body for cleaning and disposal. The tube or pipe magnets come in eight standard sizes:

  • 100mm Diameter (Throughput 10 m3/hr)
  • 150mm Diameter (Throughput 35 m3/hr)
  • 200mm Diameter (Throughput 85 m3/hr)
