25.05.2020 Extended range of magnetic separators

GEA, Düsseldorf, Germany, is expanding its Aseptomag® magnetic separator portfolio. The manually switchable MAS H version, including a patented locking mechanism, and the pneumatically switchable MAS PA version for cleaning-in-place (CIP) processes are the latest achievements in this regard.

With its Aseptomag range of magnetic separators, GEA supports its customers in the food, pharmaceutical and chemical industries in achieving three goals: improving product quality, preventing plant from damage and increasing plant availability.  

As with the basic version MAS B, the new switchable type MAS H is also cleaned ‘out-of-place’. For this purpose the magnetic unit is removed from the housing for manual cleaning. In contrast to the type MAS B with a constant magnetic field, with the new type MAS H the magnetic field can be deactivated by a hand lever, so that the magnetic force on the rods is cancelled and the accumulated particles are immediately released. A patented locking mechanism ensures that the magnetic force can only be deactivated after the unit has been removed from the housing and that the magnetic bars are again positioned in the product area when reassembling the unit. The new type MAS PA can be fully integrated into automated processes. The basic prerequisites for this are standardised CIP processes and a bypass valve for the removal of foreign particles. The new types MAS H and MAS PA use the same housing as the existing type MAS B. An upgrade to a different magnetic unit is therefore easily achievable.

As a leading supplier of component solutions for the food and pharmaceutical industries, GEA attaches importance to hygienic design requirements and strict compliance with relevant standards regarding the use of materials in contact with food, such as FDA 21 CFR § 177.2600 and EC 1935/2004.
