The EHEDG magnetic filter is specially designed for the food industry. The hygienic filter includes a magnet that can be magnetically operated without the need to open the filter housing for cleaning, thus making it suitable for CIP systems.
The filter is constructed of Neodymium magnets that provide more effective separation of very small ferrous particles as small as 15 micrometres, 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 the specified particles from both liquid and powdered products. The entire system is made of grade 316 stainless steel, is smoothly finished (Ra≤0.4ų) and is EHEDG certified.
The Easy Clean Flow magnet is a pneumatic magnetic bar that can be used to remove metal particles.
Where conventional pneumatic magnets are typically fitted with two layers of thin (25 mm) bars, the new design contains a single row of 50 mm thick bars, which enables for a higher separation yield — thicker bars remain in contact with the magnetic particles longer.
With a reduced overall height of the magnet, less installation height is required. Moreover, a single row of bars results in improved product flow; this is particularly beneficial when it comes to poorly flowing powders.
The Hygienic Wet Blasting process, developed in collaboration with TNO, is a new surface treatment that makes magnetic separators more hygienic and easier to clean as no product remains in the casing.
It reduces the surface roughness of the stainless steel casing, thereby minimising adhesion of wet and dry products to the magnet while also reducing adhesion of bacterial and microbial contaminants to provide optimal corrosion resistance.
The hygienic wet blasting process can be used to remove very fine iron and steel particles in the dairy industry.
