16.01.2017 EHEDG magnetic filter with CIP cleaning

Goudsmit Magnetics, Waalre, the Netherlands, has recently introduced an EHEDG-certified magnetic filter specially designed for the food industry. This hygienic filter is suitable for CIP systems: the magnet can be magnetically operated, without the need to open the filter housing for cleaning. The filter is constructed of Neodymium magnets that provide more effective separation of very small ferrous particles as small as 15µm, weakly magnetic particles and even iron dust from sticky substances such as chocolate, pastes, powders and fruit juices. The magnet has a maximum flux density of 11,300 gauss at the bar and removes the specified particles from both liquid and powdered products. The unit will be exhibited at CFIA, Rennes, France, 7-9 March.
Cleaning of the magnet is performed automatically. When production is stopped the magnet can be 'blown' out of the product flow so the flushing cycle can carry away the captured ferritic particles. This is done to prevent the captured particles from entering the product again elsewhere in the process. After the flushing cycle the magnet part is ready for the complete CIP cycle. The housing is constructed so that no product remains behind after cleaning. Recently Goudsmit became the first magnet supplier to be admitted to the European Hygienic Engineering & Design Group. 
Goudsmit’s magnetic filter with CIP cleaning is available in a choice of five dimensions and meets the highest food safety specification, the EHEDG standard
