Ceramic grate magnets, also known as ceramic hopper magnets, are an excellent way to combat ferrous metal contamination in your product flow. These magnets are configured to maximize removal of ferrous metal contamination using their high-intensity magnetic field. Ceramic grate magnets trap and hold ferrous fines, fragments, and small metal objects as product flows through them.
With a square design, these ceramic grate magnets are easy to install or simply place in hoppers, housings, and bins. From there, all you need to do is remove and clean according to your application 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.
