Magnets separate metal from cattle and animal feed | Goudsmit Magnetics


Cattle feed & animal feed industry

Do your hammer mills, pelletizers, mixing, grinding or other equipment occasionally become defective? Or are you dealing with a risk of dust explosions? Are you ever confronted with damage claims?
Magnet systems prevent damage to expensive equipment caused by bulk flows contaminated with iron particles.


Our magnet systems can be installed into vertical pneumatic transport lines, above conveyor belts or into existing vibratory systems.

They remove iron contamination from around 50 µm from bulk streams, such as cattle feed, and chicken and animal feed.

But also from corn, grain, malt, barley, sugar, cocoa beans, sunflower seeds, rape seed, tapioca or soy.

Free fall process

Various types of magnets are suitable for the livestock or animal feed industry.

One of them is the chute magnet which is easy to install in existing free fall or slide processes. This magnet consists of a powerful Neoflux® (Nd-Fe-B) plate magnet that is strong yet lightweight. This chute magnet is a simple way of removing iron particles of 60 µm up to approximately 5 mm in size from cattle feed and powders.

Important factors for attaining good separation include that the magnet makes optimal contact with the product, that it is easy to clean and also that it can be easily integrated into existing production processes. The chute magnet has a fixed overall height but can be custom made to any width.

Magnets even filter stainless steel

Easy Cleanflow magnets are also particularly well suited for the cattle feed industry. They remove iron particles and weakly magnetic stainless steel particles (>30 µm) from high capacity powders and granules.

This magnet requires only a low installation height and is also dust-tight up to an overpressure of 1.5 bar. It has a very easy-to-use, robust control. Also suitable for difficultly flowing powders.

Bullet magnets, cascade or plate magnets are also proven systems for the bulk and cattle feed industries. They are fully suited for ATEX zones and process large quantities.

Magnets not only protect your valuable machines. They also guarantee the quality of your finished product and help prevent product recalls and damage claims.
