Available as standard in high strength or the latest rare-earth/neodymium range of materials. All these materials are truly permanent magnets and will give many years of maintenance free use.

Grate magnet frames are manufactured from stainless steel and are very robust. The frames are slotted each end allowing adjustment of the magnetic bar centers for best flow and separation results.

Grate magnets will remove iron contamination from most free flowing granular and powder products. Grates can be used as single units or stacked in rows where fine or weakly magnetic particles are to be separated. They can be installed in vertical ducts, hoppers, intake grids and loading or unloading points. See page GF_TD1 for stock sizes. Other sizes are manufactured by request. Grate frames also fit our standard grate magnet housings. See leaflet GH_TD1. Rare-earth magnets are the same size but have the letter 'N'after the Model type i.e. GF'N' 150.

To select the correct grate magnet area double the area of that required for normal throughput. Where large amounts of contamination are expected the above area should be further increased to allow for the iron accumulation. This extra area also reduces the cleaning cycle.

For many applications such as loading points and hoppers no special fixings are required. Where location is necessary as in straight sided openings and ducts, two stainless steel runners will be adequate.
