Overview - Auto-Shuttle Magnetic Separator

Process protection for 24/7 processing lines

The Auto-Shuttle magnetic separator can carry out a full clean without the need to stop the process. The magnetic separation  unit is supplied with a pre-programmed PLC that can either work independently or connected to the central control rooms system for remote activation or monitoring.

Reed switches are fitted to each end of the separator tubes to indicate the position of each magnetic core. The full system remains air-tight throughout normal operation making it suitable for
environments where ATEX equipment is required.

Also available are the Auto-Shuttle Double Row, Triple-Row & Quadruple Row for higher intensity magnetic separation.

Suitable for magnetic separation of dry powders, granulates, flour, sugar and salt
Can be installed in any vertical process line

The magnetic cores remain in the process chamber until a cleaning signal is given. Then, compressed air is fed into each separator tube forcing the core to the other end of the unit. The contamination follows the core, which first passes through the product return chamber to prevent the loss of good product, and into the cleaning chamber where the collected contamination is deposited. The cleaning chamber is fitted with a transition piece, which allows a collection container to be fitted. It is this container that is removed to assess the collected contamination.
