A magnet is a magnet is a magnet – or is it?  The quality of the magnet material itself can be a contributing factor to how well the magnet will perform, ensuring that any ferrous metal does not enter equipment such as hammer mills, grinders, crushers, pumps and pulverisers.


There are many factors that affect a magnetic gravity feed device’s ability to perform a function outside of the product stream.  The internal circuitry has a major impact on the strength of a magnet and the working distance it is designed for.  The amount of magnet used in the same type magnet will vary and this will have a significant effect on the effectiveness of the magnet.

As market competitiveness increases and production rates are raised, it is important to consider the bigger picture requirements of high production rates and large scale plant operations.  Out-dated magnet technologies need to be identified immediately to ensure that their ferrous metal detection capabilities are still reliable.  From a maintenance perspective, innovative technologies have been incorporated into the design and manufacture of high performance separation magnets making them significantly more lightweight to handle, more efficient in their power consumption, easier to clean, as well as achieve reliable highest purity ratings.

Kinder Australia is delighted to announce that we are now the EXCLUSIVE supplier of the complete range of IMI Tramp Metal Separation products throughout Australia and New Zealand.  These industrial magnets offer 52 MgOe rare earth material as a standard in their products, whereas most other rare earth magnets offer a maximum of 50 MgOe.
