Free-fall and chute transport
Chute magnets are mainly used for removing ferrous contaminants from powders, granulates, and even coarser raw material flows in free-fall pipes or chutes with a sliding angle of max. 45˚.
Chute magnets are a simple solution for removing iron contamination. You can easily install them yourself, and they deliver a high separation efficiency. We default use neodymium magnetic plates, because they are extremely powerful, compact and lightweight.

Filtering & discharging of ferrous contaminants
You can clean the chute magnet through use of the hinged extractor plate for quick-cleaning. When you swing the hinged extractor plate away from the magnet, the ferrous particles will fall off of the extractor plate as soon as they are far enough away from the magnet.
For reasons of safety, the operator must operate the chute magnets with two hands. The magnets are secured in the outermost cleaning position, after which the operator has both hands free for cleaning.
