Cleanflows - manual cleaning - rotating
Especially suitable for magnetic filtering of small amounts of ferrous contaminants from poorly flowing - e.g. fatty - powders in free-fall transport pipes. Rotation of the magnetic bars prevents bridging and blockages.
- 1 or 2 rotors with magnetic bars
- Magnetic bars in extractor tube (Max. 13,000 gauss)
- Capacity 9 - 45 m³/h
- Types basic/food/pharma
- ATEX II 1/2 D possible
Poorly flowing powders in free-fall pipes
These rotating Cleanflow magnetic separators are specially suited for poorly flowing powders. The rotating magnetic bars prevent bridging and in the end blockages or clogging (see also 'Working principle').
The 'Basic' versions are suitable for so-called non-food applications; the hygienic 'Food‘ / 'Pharma' versions are suitable for food and pharmaceutical industries with a danger for bacterial growth.

Filtering & discharging of ferrous contaminants
How does the magnetic filtering work?
The magnetic rotor with very strong neodymium magnetic bars is positioned in the middle of the product flow. The product with ferrous contaminants passes several magnetic bars while flowing through the separator.
The magnets attract passing ferromagnetic contaminants. The captured particles stick to the magnets, while the purified product flows further.
Because the rotor rotates inside the housing, the product continuously falls off the bars. This prevents 'bridging', product accumulation and ultimately blockages. Moreover, the magnetic filtering capacity remains optimal, because the magnetic bars remain clean.
How does the cleaning / iron discharging work?
After you have stoped the product flow, you can take the entire magnetic rotor unit out of the product channel.
Then you can pull the magnetic bars out of the extractor tubes, causing the ferrous particles to fall off the extractor tubes.
Cleaning / iron discharging sequence
- Stop the product flow.
- Loosen the fastener clamps.
- Take the complete magnet unit out of the housing.
- Take the magnet unit out of the extractor unit and place it away from the extractor unit on a clean surface.
Catch the ferrous particles that now will fall off the tubes and dispose them.
- Wipe clean all parts with a soft cloth and - if necessary - a suitable cleaning fluid.
- Shove the magnet unit back into the extractor unit.
- Place the complete magnet unit assembly back into the housing.
- Tighten the fastener clamps.
- Restart the product flow.
