Hopper / Grate Magnets
Hopper / Grate Magnets are commonly used in the plastics industry to prevent contamination from ferrous material. Bunting® Hopper/Grate Magnets provide a properly configured, high-density magnetic field to trap and hold ferrous fines, fragments, and small metal objects. Stainless steel tubing and frames are welded into strong, integral units. They can be installed – or simply laid – inside hoppers, housings, and bins – and easily removed for cleaning. Grates are built for low-abrasion applications and should measure at least twice the size of your outlet opening, so as not to restrict product flow. Standard units feature 1” diameter Bunting® Magnetic Cartridges encased in 304 stainless steel and mounted on 2” centers.
