Magnet systems for the food and pharmaceutical industries
The chute magnet system has been developed for the efficient removal of iron particles from raw materials which do not flow freely, such as powders, and tacky or oily products, and/or scrap. The system is installed in one of the pipes used to transport the raw materials during the production process. The unit is located in a fully-welded stainless-steel housing which can be installed in the pipe in a manner such that it in effect constitutes an integral part of the pipe. To this end use can be made of the adapter pieces. See ......
Chute magnets are characterized by the location of the magnet poles outside rather than inside the product flow. Extremely powerful plate magnets located on opposite sides of the housing capture iron particles contaminating the product flow. These magnet plates are actually of a strength such that the external core is suitable for use with a column of material. The standard system is equipped with two intermediate panels which swivel together with the magnets. On swivelling the magnets further open than the intermediate panels the separated iron particles are released ready for collection. To prevent particles captured by the magnets from being
released into the product flow each intermediate panel is fitted with two sloping poles.
The overall height depends on the bore of the housing. Since no parts obstruct the product flow they are ideally suited to high-throughput systems. Chute magnets can, in consultation with Bakker Magnetics, also be installed at an angle. The BKM/VI chute magnet can also be used in pipes used for pneumatic transport at an underpressure.

The standard magnet systems for the food and pharmaceutical industries are fitted with flat pre-drilled square connection flanges. A wide range of standard adapter pieces are available for the integration of these systems in an existing pipe. One end of these adapter pipes is fitted with
a pre-drilled square flange mating with the flange on the magnet system. The other end is fitted with a flat connection flange with a hole pattern in accordance with DIN2576.
Non-standard adapter pipes are available on request.
