NETHERLANDS- The recently developed 10,000 gauss rotating clean flow magnet from Waalre-based Goudsmit Magnetics is 40% thicker than regular magnetic bars and thus much more efficient. 

This new product, developed in response to many customer requests, filters magnetic and paramagnetic particles out of poorly flowing, greasy powders in the food, pharma, and chemical industries. 

The magnet rotor is composed of seven strong magnet bars, equipped with Neodymium-iron-boron magnets, each with a diameter of 32 mm.

This separator also works well in the static version of the cleanflow, is suitable for free-fall lines, and captures both iron and AISI 304 and AISI 316 particles as small as 30 µm. 

Additionally, the magnetic extractor is designed to be interchangeable one-to-one with existing rotary cleanflow systems. 

The powerful magnetic bars in the cleanflow separator filter metal particles and paramagnetic particles from fatty powders and granular products. 

The separator is available in three sizes, with the largest model suitable for product flows of up to 45m3/hour. 

The product also features a magnetic flux density of 10,000 gauss. 

The separator also has a wide range of temperatures at which it operates, with the maximum working and product temperature being 140°C and the minimum being -20°C. 

The magnetic bars rotate in the product flow, counteracting bridge formation and material accumulation, ensuring optimal magnetic contact to capture metal contamination. 

This result in a high degree of separation and a clean product.

Goudsmit also developed a special cleaner system, which allows easy and hygienic cleaning of the extractor.

It is also easy for operators to manually clean the separator. The operator removes the rotor from the housing and pulls the magnetic bars out of the extractor, after which the metal particles are loosened and can be disposed of.
