Magnet removes ferrous debris
A magnetic filter introduced by Goudsmit Magnetics, which meets European Hygienic Engineering and Design Group (EHEDG) food safety requirements, is specially designed for the food industry.

This hygienic filter is suitable for cleaning-in-place systems, since it can be magnetically operated, without the need to open the filter housing for cleaning.

It is constructed of neodymium magnets, which provide effective separation of very small ferrous particles – down to 15, as well as weakly magnetic particles and even iron dust from sticky substances such as chocolate, pastes, powders and fruit juices.

The magnet has a maximum flux density of 11,300 gauss at the bar and removes particles from both liquid and powdered products. The entire system is made of grade 316 stainless steel, is smoothly finished and is EHEDG certified.

Cleaning of the magnet occurs automatically. When production is stopped the magnet can be ‘blown’ out of the product flow so the flushing cycle can carry away the captured ferritic particles.

This operation is done to prevent the captured particles from entering the product again elsewhere in the process.
