Drawer Magnets

MPI’s new patent-pending Sanitary Toolless Drawer Magnet (ILGDM) is ideally suited to capture small contaminants, such as wire, metal shavings and metal wear from dry powder or granular free-flowing product streams in gravity-fed vertical chutes. Used in primary, secondary or finishing applications, this next generation drawer magnet delivers the highest levels of equipment protection and product purity.

The product stream flows through a series of 1” diameter magnetic tubes designed to create an extremely effective magnetic circuit. Each row of magnetic tubes is staggered to prevent bridging or choking of the product stream and to maximize magnetic filtration as product flows through the housing. Tramp metal contaminants are attracted to the magnetic tubes. The manually operated cleaning system safely removes tramp metal from the product stream to a disposal area outside the product flow area.

  • Dust-tight stainless steel construction
  • Manual “quick-clean” design
  • Stripper plate is easily replaceable and provides complete stripping action of magnetic tubes with sanitary design
  • 52 MGOe Rare Earth magnet material
  • Two rows of 1” dia. magnetic tubes on 2” centers
  • Operating temperatures up to 176° F
  • Sani-TIGHT Seal™ Gasket
    • Type: Compression style “O-ring” cord gasket
    • 100% Positive seal, cannot be over-compressed
    • Sanitary: Can be removed for wash-down, no adhesive required
  • Minimal tools needed for disassembly
