Plate Magnets

Plate magnets are used to remove scrap metal from items such as grains, glass, chemicals, plastics, minerals and foodstuffs.  Plate magnets are primarily used in ducts and chutes or suspended over conveyor belts. Plate magnets prevent damage to equipment and product contamination by effectively removing tramp iron from free-flowing materials under pressure. They provide permanent magnetic strength and are easily installed to fit most granulators in use today. Five standard plate magnet models are available with widths starting at six inches. Price quotations are available on request, as are optional features.
