Inline magnetic filters are also known as magnetic basket strainers or pipeline magnets. They filter ferromagnetic metal contaminants, such as iron and steel, as well as weakly magnetic particles, like residue from machined stainless steel, from liquids and powders that are transported under pressure.
The specifications for every magnetic filter are;
- Test pressure 15 bar
- Maximum operating pressure 10 bar.
Goudsmit Magnetics’ powerful Neoflux® (neodymium) magnetic bars are used in the product flow and can filter out even the smallest Fe particles – down to 30 microns – as well as weakly magnetic particles such as stainless-steel residue. These extremely fine iron and stainless steel particles are so small that they cannot even be detected with a metal detector.
Goudsmit’s pipeline magnets have applications in the food, pharma and ceramics industries, among others. They have a variety of purposes such as the deferrization of pigments or paints. They are also used in the ceramics industry to ‘clean’ glazes. This is to prevent the formation of ‘black specks’.
The standard version inline magnetic filters at Goudsmit have multiple magnetic bars, mounted in a cascade arrangement, one after the other. This ensures that the product must contact or at least come very close to the magnetic bars. Many of the types of Goudsmit magnetic filters are designed with the magnetic bars located inside extractor tubes, making cleaning quick and easy. The pneumatic industrial filters and the hygienic CIP filters clean semi-automatically under pneumatic control which means that they do not require an extractor. This results in higher field strength at the magnet and eliminates the possibility of bacterial growth.
