Eriez® Magnetic Humps and Round Pipe Separators Remove Tramp Iron from Free Flowing Gravity or Pneumatically Conveyed Materials

Press Release:
  May 15, 2012 — Erie, PA--- Eriez® Magnetic Humps and Round Pipe Separators provide a simple and effective way to remove tramp iron contamination from gravity or pneumatically conveyed dry, free flowing products such as feed, grain, wood chips, food stuffs, sand or plastic.

Materials entering the Magnetic Hump are abruptly forced to change direction against the face of the powerful series SD Plate Magnet. As the materials tumble in the housing, they change direction once more against the face of a second plate magnet. The Magnetic Hump design takes advantage of the ferrous material density. The heavier metallics are more likely to work their way to the face of the magnet, increasing the probability of capture.

Eriez Magnetic Humps are simple to operate and maintain. The ferrous contamination remains on the face of the magnet until the operator swings the magnet out of the product flow and physically removes the metal.

Various magnetic strengths, including Rare Earth, Xtreme® Rare Earth, Superpower or Maxipower, can be selected to suit specific application challenges. Magnetic Humps are also available in a self-cleaning design.
