The nine-page white paper offers guidelines on conducting a proper and valid magnet pull test. Beginning with an overview on pull tests, the white paper covers factors affecting magnet performance, which magnets get tested, how to conduct a proper pull test, misconceptions about test pieces and much more.

“Pull tests are an essential quality control tool used to monitor magnet strength to ensure optimum performance,” says Bill Dudenhoefer, Manager—Separation. “This white paper is a must-read for any individuals responsible for maintenance of magnetic separation equipment.”

As explained in the white paper, different pull test pieces yield different measurements, which causes confusion and misleading results. Eriez has developed a short video to explain why using identical test pieces is an essential component to accurate readings. The video can be viewed at:
