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.
