These separators are made with Erium 3000, a high-quality permanent magnetic power source which develops a magnetic field that has up to 25 times the magnetic pull of conventional ceramic (barium ferrite) or Alnico (aluminumnickelcobalt) magnet materials, according to the company.
These versatile super-strength rare earth plate magnets can be located on the bottom of a chute or suspended over product flows. They are available in even inch magnet face width increments (e.g., 8-, 10-, 12-in.).
For quality control, the company recommends periodic pull testing of all magnetic separators. Upon request, Eriez provides free pull testing at customers’ facilities and offers Pull Test Kits for purchase.
