Eriez® Super Strength Rare Earth Plate Magnets provide protection against ferrous contamination to meet the strict requirements of food industry applications. With up to five times more strength than conventional plate magnets, they remove weakly magnetic and fine iron from dry or wet products. These devices are made with Erium™ 3000, a high quality permanent magnetic power source that develops a magnetic field with up to 25 times the magnetic pull of conventional ceramic (barium ferrite) or Alnico (aluminum-nickel-cobalt) magnet materials. These versatile magnets can be located on the bottom of a chute or suspended over product flows. They are available in even inch magnet face width increments (e.g. 8-, 10-, 12-inch).
