Plate magnetic separator SPM


Plate magnetic separator SPM

Magnetic plate separator (SPM)

The SPM type plate magnetic separator is designed to remove iron contaminants from bulk materials (granulation up to 20 mm) in free fall systems. The plate separator protects process machines against damage caused by metal contamination, prevents production downtime and ensures product quality. The SPM-separator also protects the consumer against eating dangerous metal pieces and is a perfect complement to a metal detector.

The plate magnetic separator is reliable, very durable and designed for continuous operation. The magnetic separator is characterized by high metal separation efficiency. The ferrite or neodymium permanent magnets used in the magnetic plates have high coercivity, which makes them difficult to demagnetize. Therefore, the plate separator has a long service life.

Versions of the plate magnetic separator

  • SPM-F type plate magnetic separator
    Equipped with ferrite magnetic plates with medium magnetic field intensity designed to remove larger metal contaminants from the transported material, such as screws, bolts and other broken machine parts.
  • SPM-N type plate magnetic separator
    Equipped with neodymium magnetic plates with high magnetic field intensity designed to remove small metal contaminants from the transported material, such as bearing balls, metal filings, iron oxides and others with a small adhesion surface to the magnet and weakly magnetically susceptible.
