Overview - Alnico Rectangular Bar Magnet
The Alnico rectangular bar magnets are made from Alnico 2 and Alnico 5 grade materials. They are also known as alnico rectangular rod magnets and alnico bar magnets.
They can be used at temperatures of up to +550 degrees C. They are referred to as bar magnets because the distance between the poles is greater than the pole face dimensions (i.e. they are magnetised in the same direction as their longest dimension).
The Alnico rectangular bar magnets are supplied in the famous Eclipse painted (red colour) or natural finish (uncoated, unpainted). They are popular for sensing applications and for experimental use in schools.
We can supply such Alnico rectangular bar magnets in other dimensions and grades as required as part of our custom magnet service subject to quantities.
Ideal for educational usage and practical demonstrations, a typical bar magnet can also be commonly used to activate reed switches. In addition to rectangualr bar magnets we have a range of cylindrical shaped bar magnets.

"We were delighted with the service provided by Eclipse Magnetics; from the initial site survey through to delivery."
"I cannot begin to tell you how much it has helped our operation, the magnetic filtration unit has been a real problem solver it has surpassed all our expectations. Its cured a 30 year plague!"
"This technology is economical, reliable and efficient. I believe that magnetic filtration technology is the future."
"Magnetic filtration has dramatically cleaned up our fluids and improved the surface finish we can offer. It extracts around 50Kg per day of ferrous waste."
"We chose Eclipse Magnetics to supply our housed grid because they are a respected and well-established brand. They offered us a very competitive price, and the process of ordering and installation was straightforward and reliable."
“We are delighted with the Automag installation; it’s solved all the problems we were having previously with downtime and maintenance costs. The filter means that we are able to use recycled water, which is saving us £1000 per week!”
"Here at Qualflow, we base our business on a philosophy of make the product simple to use, reliable and cost-effective. Eclipse Magnetics’ neodymium magnets offer the strongest magnetic performance, and are nickel plated, making them a cost effective.."
"The Ultralift Plus magnetic lifter from Eclipse Magnetics is the perfect solution for the pick-up and transportation of the ultrasonic calibration blocks in our facility"
"The result is an aesthetically pleasing system, which is effective in trapping metal contaminants and is easy to clean..."
