The Mastermag bullet separator is an efficient, cost effective device for extracting iron particles from within pipelines or gravity feed chutes. The bullet magnet system is designed for installation into vertical, or near vertical pipelines that carry grain or similar free flowing granular products. When material flows over the magnetic bullet, ferrous particles are attracted to the surface and are securely held in position until they are removed in the manual cleaning process.
Bullet magnets consist of a circular/conical core, containing a powerful strontium ferrite or neodymium iron boron (rare earth) magnet system. Guide strips within the bullet magnet housing ensure that the material is directed onto the bullets surface for optimum separation.
The bullet separator has been specifically designed for very quick and easy cleaning, reducing production downtime to a minimum. The cleaning process simply involves releasing the quick action catches and opening the trunking door, which the bullet is attached to.
Bullet magnets can be installed into pipelines and chutes where there is a dry, free-flowing granular or powder based product. They are ideal for removing ferrous contaminants such as nails and bolts.
Typical examples of applications are;
- Ceramic processing plants
- Food manufacturing and processing plants
- Powder handling
- Wood recycling
- Plastic processing
- Grain milling processing
The bullet magnet is available with either a ferrite or rare earth magnet system.
When processes require the removal of fine ferrous particles, the more powerful 'high-intensity' rare earth magnet is the preferred solution, particularly for food processing and pharmacuetical applications.
The bullet magnet will suit most diameter pipelines, ranging from 100-500mm.
