Magnetic filter FM


Magnetic filter FM

Magnetic filter (FM)

The FM type magnetic filter (magnetic trap) is designed for semi-automatic removal of smallest iron contaminants from liquid and paste products in pressure pipelines. The magnetic filter protects pumps, centrifuges and dosing machines against damage caused by metal contamination, prevents production downtime and ensures product quality. The FM-filter also protects the consumer against eating dangerous metal pieces and is a perfect complement to a metal detector.

The magnetic filter is reliable, very durable and designed for continuous operation. The magnetic separator is characterized by the highest metal separation efficiency. The magnetic filter enables the separation of filings, iron oxides and even slightly magnetised stainless steel. The powerful neodymium permanent magnets used in magnetic bars have high coercivity, which makes them difficult to demagnetize. Therefore, the magnetic filter has a long service life.
