Automatic self-cleaning grate magnets from Serpent & Dove are designed to remove iron particles and matter from food products.
 
Iron turns up in food processing in many forms and may include grinding iron, welding rod ends or nuts and bolts from maintenance work. Also known as tramp iron, it needs to be removed from the product.

Key features of 1 Tesla automatic self-cleaning grate magnets:

  • Pneumatically-actuated
  • Each row can be individually cleaned, eliminating any interruption to product flow
  • Self-cleaning design eliminates manual attendance and cleaning
  • Supplied with touch screen control
  • Can be PLC or manually operated
Serpent & Dove – Applied Magnetics operates a unit in Sydney for testwork or demonstration on the customer’s products.
