Overview - Underflow Magnetic Separator

High-intensity underflow magnets for large size contamination

The underflow magnet has been designed to operate in arduous conditions and where contamination size is relatively large e.g. nuts, bolts etc. The unit incorporates two magnetic poles which generate high-intensity magnetic fields.

The unit is secured to the chute by a hinge and toggle clamp arrangement. The toggle clamps ensure even pressure is generated around the seal to prevent any product leakage.

The underflow magnet can be incorporated into any form of angled pipe or chute section. A common installation location is raw material inlet points for products such as grain, rice, corn, bran and animal feed etc. Two catchment areas ensure that attracted contamination cannot be 'washed off'.
