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.
