S+S Separation and Sorting Technology presented the Magbox MXP inline magnet in a completely re-engineered version at the K-2010 trade fair in Düsseldorf.
Magbox MXP inline magnets are primarily used in already existing pipelines, where they thoroughly separate fine and very fine ferrous metal contaminations from powdery and grainy bulk materials. They are integrated in pipelines by way of flat flanges, Jacob connections, or customer-specific connections. The sturdy stainless-steel construction (1.4301) provides the highest corrosion and wear resistance. The Magbox MXP inline magnet is equipped with two neodymium magnet grids that are positioned in a staggered arrangement, one above the other, to achieve a maximum level of separation.
Stephan Treml, product manager, S+S Magnet Systems, says about this inline magnet: “In the re-engineering of the Magbox inline magnet we attached greatest importance to quality. The modern, functional design and manufacture are 100% S+S made in Germany. The design with lateral guide frames inclusive of ergonomic handles allows easy, well-balanced and safe handling. Like a protective cage this frame furthermore protects the magnet rods against impacts.”
All the Magbox system versions are provided with magnet grids featuring pull-out magnet cores (EASY CLEAN), which considerably facilitates and speeds up system cleaning. As an option the Magbox MXP inline magnet is also available with high-temperature magnets. The high-temperature (HT) version of the magnet system reliably removes metal particles from very hot plastic granulate and thus protects processing machines against damage. As magnet material the Magbox HT high-temperature version uses a rare-earth compound with a magnet power of more than 10,000G.
The maximum service temperature, which is the highest temperature that a magnet may be exposed to without an irreversible loss of power, is 350°C. In simple applications ferrite magnets with a magnetic power of only 2,000G are often used. Compared to ferrites, rare-earth magnets are considerably more temperature-stable and more powerful.
