The new magnetic separator recently introduced to the market by Goudsmit Magnetics removes metal particles from soy powder, among other things. The Easy Cleanflow magnetic separator can be placed under the vibrating sieve to remove minuscule metal particles and weakly magnetic stainless steel wear particles from 30 µm from various powders, including soy powder. It is also a control tool that assures the producer that they are delivering a clean product. Metal particles and fine stainless steel wear particles get into the product through friction in the dryer and are absolutely not wanted. The advantage of this new design is that no operator is needed for the operation. In addition, the magnetic separator is dustproof, food safe and has food safe EC1935 seals. It is also safe and efficient to clean. Find out how the magnet works here.
Stainless steel particles
The soya powder serves as an ingredient for the animal feed industry. The powder contains minuscule metal particles and stainless steel (wear and tear) particles that the Easy cleanflow magnet easily removes. AISI316 is particularly difficult to remove. This magnet is suitable for large product flows and is distinguished by its very high magnetic flux density of more than 12,000 gauss on the contact surface of the bars. By installing a deflector, the product comes into direct contact with the bars and the magnet captures up to 60% of the AISI316 particles that are difficult to filter. The magnet has a deep magnetic field and is dustproof to an overpressure of 0.5 bar. It also has a simple electric/pneumatic control for user-friendly cleaning.
As in most food processing companies, magnetic separators are important filters for very fine metal separation. They even capture particles that a metal detector does not see. Magnetic separators, such as the Easy cleanflow magnet, ensure a qualitatively optimal end product. They also prevent product recalls and costly damage claims as well as – in some cases – machine jamming.
