Shields Belt Magnets are the only belt magnets available with exclusive Tri-Polar Magnetic Circuitry. Shields Comany/Mastermag has developed this computer designed magnetic circuitry using a rare, large and very costly 13 ton magnetizer, one of only three in the world. It is exclusively available on Shields/Mastermag 12, 14, 16 and 18 series belt magnets.
Translated what it means is this. Most belt magnets and magnet systems manufacturers traditionally magnetize ceramic blocks before forming the circuit in a stainless steel box. Due to the nature of magnets and belt magnets-wanting to repel each other- there is a limitation on how many blocks can be stacked on top of each other. Shields Company belts magnets are formed in the stainless steel box prior to magnetizing. After the circuit is arrange and box sealed, it is immersed in the 13 ton magnetizer for three separate charging sessions, thoroughly magnetizing the system creating the Tri-Polar Magnetic Circuitry. All Shields belt magnets used Ceramic 8 material. This is also known as Strontium Ferrite.
With the Tri-Polar Magnetic Circuitry as part of Shields larger belt magnets, Permanent Magnet Technology will never be the same. As a direct result of this technology, peripheral magnetic leakage is all but eliminated, directing the magnetic field straight down and creating a stronger magnet. These belt magnets are approximately 30% more powerful than the competing units of the same size, and equivalent or superior to many sizes of Electro-magnets. As a result of this strength, Manganese Wear Impact Plates are included as standard on this line of belt magnets.
When shopping for belt magnets, there is no other option. Our pricing and technology is unrivaled in the industry.
