Advantages of the Mag-Ram Self Cleaning Separator

This month, the Mag-Ram Automatic Self-Cleaning Separator celebrates its 10th year of innovative magnetic separation and advanced foreign metal fragment control. 

In this article, we take a look at the key features and advantages of the Mag-Ram that have contributed to its high success level in the food processing industry.

Key advantages of the Mag-Ram include: 

  • Increased product purity, security, and food safety
  • Reduced risk of contamination in the final product
  • Reduced risk of food recall
  • Protection of brand name and reputation
  • Protection of consumers against injury caused by consumption of a contaminated food product
  • Protection of critical processing equipment against damage caused by entry of metal, including reduced risk of explosion caused by metal sparks (e.g. in milling operations)
  • Sanitary magnetic separation, no need for operator interaction
  • Reduced safety risks associated with handling/manually cleaning heavy grates

DESIGNED TO OVERCOME EXISTING PROBLEMS WITH CONVENTIONAL SELF-CLEANING GRATE MAGNETS

The Mag-Ram was initially designed to overcome issues experienced with other self-cleaning magnets designs in the market, that consisted of whole magnet rows being pulled through common wiper seals by external air cylinders. These types of systems have historically tended to have consistent maintenance issues.

The Mag-Ram effectively overcomes these issues with single Ram (or magnet bar) cleaning, and doing so has provided more sanitary, safer, and very effective magnetic separation for numerous food manufacturers around the globe.

Here are some examples of how the Mag-Ram provides superior magnetic separation and overcomes many issues experienced with conventional automatic/self-cleaning magnet designs.

CONVENTIONAL SELF-CLEANING MAGNET DESIGNS RE80 MAG-RAM AUTOMATIC SELF-CLEANING MAGNETIC SEPARATOR
WHOLE ROWS OF MAGNETS ARE CLEANED AT ONCE THROUGH A COMMON WIPER SEAL SINGLE RAM/BAR CLEANING
When cleaning multiple bars at one time, residue build-up can cause excess friction and distortion of the cleaning plate, leading to jamming or malfunction during the cleaning cycle. Each separate magnet element within the housing is controlled and activated individually, reducing friction and wear and tear on each magnet.
Easy-wearing magnet bars have shorter life spans, high maintenance costs, and increased downtime to repair...especially so in abrasive products such as grain or meat rendering. Dura-Slik™ Surfacing increases abrasion resistance, resulting in longer life span and reduced downtime for repairs.
Build-up and blockage on magnet bars causes localized abrasive wear on product impingement areas. This in turn results in ongoing cleaning issues and an uneven magnet surface, consequently resulting in irreparable damage. Each time the magnet bars are retracted for cleaning, an inbuilt incremental mechanism is activated to ensure build-up is dislodged prior to cleaning without dislodging metal collections. This incremental movement serves to minimize material build-up and blockage and equalize abrasive wear so that the cleaning seal remains fully functional.
Small diameter bars (e.g. 25mm) have minimal underside retention area and often need larger pole centres than HACCP 0909MAGSEP 1-2010 specifications to achieve required magnet surface strength in order to retain weak magnetics. Larger 2” (51 mm) bars present a larger surface area of product coverage, which gives a greater magnet strength at closer pole centres, increasing collection of fragments.

SAFER AND MORE EFFICIENT THAN MANUAL-CLEAN GRATE MAGNETS

Aside from overcoming the problems of other self-cleaning magnets, the Mag-Ram is a valuable and worthwhile alternative to manual-clean grate magnets.

If you're looking for a magnet that will decrease downtime, increase product security, and reduce operator safety risks, then the Mag-Ram could well be the answer!
