30.03.2015 Magnet filter for food applications

Goudsmit Magnetic Systems, Aalst-Waalre, the Netherlands, has introduced an updated EHEDG magnet filter that has been specially developed for the food industry. The filter is composed of Neoflux® (Nd-Fe-B or rare-earth) magnets that provide for an efficient separation of minute iron particles from 5ųm , weak magnetic particles and even iron dust. It generates a magnetic field of a maximum of 10,700 Gauss (+/-5%) on the bars and removes the particles from powdered as well as liquid products. The entire system is made of stainless steel 316, smoothly finished (Ra≤0.8ųm), and complies with the HACCP/EHEDG norm, the highest standard in the field of food safety. 
The removal of the captured metal particles is achieved in three different ways: manually, whereby the operator can easily pull apart the magnetic bars covered by an extractor; manually + pneumatically, whereby the cleaning is done automatically and, according to the most recent method, pneumatically + CIP (cleaning in place), whereby in addition to cleaning also the rinsing of the magnetic bars is done automatically. The unit was exhibited at this year’s Anuga FoodTec.
