Liquid Pressure Pipeline Magnets manufactured by WJB Engineering

May 2011

WJB Engineering specializes in the manufacture of magnetic separation solutions for metal fragment control in the food industry.

One of WJB Engineering’s breakthroughs in development of efficient magnetic separation for liquid lines is the Liquid Pressure Pipeline Magnet, designed to efficiently extract magnetic fragments in both viscous and non-viscous liquid food products.

MAGNATTACK™ RE80™HT Liquid Pressure Pipeline Magnets can be made to suit pipelines from 1" through to 8" and the RE80™HT magnetic elements inside the separators are of a high-temperature grade, for product or CIP temperatures up to 150°C/302°F. These magnet systems have been designed to ensure cleaning processes are very simple and easy. In years gone past, operators have had to contend with multiple bars on pot style magnets, which are extremely difficult to clean.

The system aims to efficiently extract magnetic fragments, work hardened stainless steel and stone particulates without leaks, blockage, or distortion. This high-grade HACCP certified equipment can be used for product protection against metal fragment issues and product complaints and can also be used to protect expensive equipment such as extruders, pumps, and homogenizers against damaged caused by entry of metal fragments. The magnetic liquid line separator has proved effective in removal of metal from chocolate, syrups, soups, sauces, pie fillings, viscous pet foods, and a large range of dairy products. The units can be jacketed to allow for hot viscous products where required (e.g. chocolate transfer). The liquid pipeline magnet can be installed in either pressure or suction lines and is supplied with wetted 316 parts (or special alloys for highly corrosive products).

With over 40 years of experience in metal fragment control in the food industry, WJB Engineering can assist in implementation of magnetic separation solutions WORLDWIDE that are well proven and very effective.
