Ferrous contaminants > 0.5 mm / heavy / non-food
Ferrite plate magnets are cost-effective, yet less powerfull and larger than neodymium plate magnets. They have the advantage that they can be used up to 100 °C. They remove ferrous contaminants from 0.5 mm. Not suitable for weakly magnetic stainless steel contamination.
Select your magnet size on the desired holding field depth. The deeper the field should reach, the heavier and larger magnet you have to select. For this reason it can be wise to select the more compact and strong neodymium (Neoflux®) plate magnets.
You can easily hang them suspended over a conveyor belt, attach them to the wall of a product channel, or mount them under a passing product stream. For dust-tight installation against the wall of a free-fall pipeline, we supply neodymium plate magnets including a mounting plate and quick-cleaning mechanism (see chute magnets).
* When placing above a belt, make sure that the construction directly below the magnet consists of non-magnetic material.

Cleaning of the plate magnet is performed manually by wiping, or through use of a hinged extractor plate for quick-cleaning. You can swing the hinged extractor plate away from the magnet. The ferrous particles fall off of the extractor plate as soon as they are moved far enough away from the magnet.
