Puritan Magnets' Air-Vey Magnets are designed to remove ferrous contaminants from products in pneumatic conveying systems operating at 15 PSI or less. Our EZ Clean style is also known as a Center-Flow Magnet, Torpedo Magnet (because the internal magnet element somewhat resembles a torpedo or bullet), Cartridge Magnet or Pneumatic Line Magnet these units are used to ensure product purity and protect process equipment.
Pneumatic Conveying Magnets install easily in a horizontal, vertical, or angled position with compression type couplings or weld in place. For dilute phase conveying systems, the magnet assembly is located in the center of the flow area. The flow through area of the housing is engineered to maintain the same product velocity with no appreciable drop in pressure. Inside the stainless steel housing is a powerful cylindrical shaped magnet with a cone shaped nose.
As material enters the housing, the nose cone diverts the material around the cylindrical magnet where it passes through the magnetic field and ferrous contaminants are drawn to the magnetic surface. Ferrous contaminants are safely held in place as the cleaned product exits out the opposite end of the housing. To clean captured ferrous contaminants, remove access door from housing by opening latches. Remove the magnetic element from the stripper shell and set aside. Ferrous contaminants will have fallen on the housing door where they can now be safely discarded. Return magnetic element to the stripper shell and install on housing. Once you have securely latched the door and magnet assembly to the housing you are now able to resume conveying product.
