Product Information:

Box Separator BX0700

The Magnetic Box Separator is ideal for the removal of ferrous and paramagnetic particulates from a range of dry free flowing products, and is therefore suitable for filtration of products within the foodchemical, pharmaceutical, ceramicanimal feed, and recycling industries. The Box Separator is a fully bespoke product and can be designed to fit any shape of chute or pipeline, with flanges to suit each customer’s requirements.

In the Box Separator, two high strength magnets are encased in the unit doors. As the product flows into the separator, a central deflector directs the product towards the magnets and ferrous particles as small as 50 microns are filtered out. These very fine ferrous particles are smaller than can be detected with a metal detector.

To clean the Box Separator, the hinged unit doors can be opened once product flow is stopped, thereby removing the magnets from the chute or pipeline. The magnets can then be manually wiped to remove the contaminant. The images below show the unit in the closed and open positions.

Electrical interlocks or safety switches can be fitted to this separator to either prevent the drawer unit from being accidentally opened during the production process or to shut down product flow should the unit be opened during production.

This product can be designed to international pressure vessel design codes (ASME VIII, EN13445 and PD5500) and can be manufactured to be Pressure Equipment Directive (PED) 97/23/EC and ATEX 2014/34/EU compliant.
