These Rare Earth Plate Magnets from Eriez provide protection against ferrous contamination to meet the strict requirements of food, pharmaceutical and packaging industry applications. With up to five times more strength than conventional magnets, they remove weakly magnetic and fine iron from dry or wet products. 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 (aluminum–nickel–cobalt) magnet materials. These 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-inch).
