Magnetic Filters

What is Magnetic Filtration?

Magnetic Filtration, in very simple terms, relies on the power of magnetic attraction to attract and capture ferrous particles from a fluid stream. It does this by placing a high intensity permanent magnetic rod in the fluid path, positioned such that all fluid must pass around the rod with sufficient contact and proximity to enable all the ferrous particles to be drawn to the magnet. This rod will continue to attract ferrous particles until it becomes saturated, at which point the process must be stopped and the magnet cleaned (either manually or, in a self-cleaning system, automatically).

Magnetic Filtration can be used to remove 100% ferrous particles down to sub-micron levels from all industrial fluids where ferrous and Para-magnetic contamination of a liquid is a problem. The removal of these particles results in longer fluid life improves the surface finish of your products, increases component accuracy and reduces wear on your machinery and tool.

Magnetic filtration provides these advantages over traditional barrier filtration:

  • No consumables used
  • Sub-micron filtration
  • Improved Surface Finish.
  • Better Product Accuracy
  • Longer lasting Fluids
  • Minimal Fluid loss
  • No disposal cost
  • Minimum running cost
  • Rapid return on investment
  • No back pressure
