Ceramic grate magnets, or ceramic hopper magnets, are useful in many different magnetic separation applications. They use a high-density magnetic field that has been expertly configured for optimal removal of ferrous metal contamination. Ceramic grate magnets excel at removing ferrous fines, fragments, and small metal objects as product flows through them.
This design incorporates an angular baffle to help divert product over the round magnetic cartridges. To use ceramic grate magnets, install or simply place them inside hoppers, housings, and bins. From there, all you need to do is remove them for regularly scheduled cleanings according to your facility’s needs.
The average Gauss on the surface of the cartridge is 1,975, with an average pull strength of 1.1lbs (using a ½” ferrous ball). Stainless steel tubing and frames are welded into strong, integral units that are built to last. Ceramic grate magnets are capable of withstanding temperatures of up to 350 °F. 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.
