Overview - Alnico Shallow Pot Magnets

With countersunk hole, ideal for screw mounting

The countersunk mounting pot magnet is also known as a shallow pot magnet (a term often used with ferrite material as the inner magnet but other magnet materials are used).

The countersunk mounting pot magnet / shallow pot magnet is a ferromagnetic steel cup into which is inserted a countersunk ring magnet. There is a hole all the way through the countersunk mounting pot magnet / shallow pot magnet. This allows a screw head to be inserted to screw  it  to any material of your choice to give a good mechanical hold.

Take care not to over tighten the screw to prevent breaking the magnet material (which is brittle in nature). The countersunk mounting pot magnet / shallow pot magnet is a very popular pot magnet, ideal for clamping and holding applications.  It is designed to clamp directly onto ferromagnetic surfaces such as mild steel. Alnico countersunk mounting pot magnets / alnico shallow pot magnets have a maximum operating temperature of up to +450 degrees C and are available in natural (uncoated, unpainted) or painted finishes. In some versions the steel hole of the mild steel cup in threaded.

Maintenance Manager at EXL Tube (Steel Ventures)

"This technology is economical, reliable and efficient. I believe that magnetic filtration technology is the future."

John Smith, MMTCI

"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."

Facilities Manager, Milacron Machines (Sub-Contract Machining)

"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."

Pat Richards, Chief Engineer at Simpsons Malt

“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!”

Kenneth McRae, Principle Engineer at Vallourec

"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.."

Justin Lawler Ph.D. MBA, Chief Technology Officer at Qualflow Systems Ltd

"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"

John Crossley, NDT Technology Lead at the Nuclear AMRC

"The result is an aesthetically pleasing system, which is effective in trapping metal contaminants and is easy to clean..."
