Eriez Magnetics Europe Limited wishes to announce the introduction of a new Magnetic Separator into their ProGrade range. The ProGrade Auto Kwik Clean (AKC) Grate captures problematic ferrous metals, with the added advantage of automated cleaning. This preserves product purity whilst eliminating downtime of machinery and saving costs.
The Eriez AKC Grate utilises Mega (10,500 gauss) Rare Earth magnetic strength and automatically discharges any collected iron due to pneumatic and electronic components. The self cleaning property allows the grate to be used in inaccessible areas where magnetic grates previously would not be considered.

When continuous operation is required and the product flow cannot be stopped to allow cleaning or maintenance, the AKC Grate proves very useful. With its perpetual process the new grate ensures maximum protection for valuable machinery. The AKC Grate offers high strength magnetic separation solutions which can be implemented across a wide range of bulk handling and process industries such as: food, chemicals, ceramics, pharmaceuticals and minerals. AKC Grate is priced competitively with a high quality finish. Importantly for many customers, they are available immediately from stock.
The AKC Grate contains 2 banks of magnetic tubes, with the top bank containing 7 tubes and the bottom bank containing 6 tubes. The magnetic component of the AKC Grate is 356mm wide by 305mm long and its typical capacity is nominally 50t.p.h t, based on sand with a bulk density of 1.6T/m3.
Eriez also offer a range of XtremeTM Rare Earth Grate Magnets which can be applied in all processing industries. The ProGrade Square, Round and housed Permanent Magnetic Grates are designed to remove ferrous contamination in hoppers, chutes, floor openings and other areas where free flowing materials are present. Like the ProGrade Auto Self Clean Grate, all other items in the ProGrade range are available for immediate despatch.
Paul Fears, Managing Director at Eriez Europe commented:
"Our strategy of offering ready made solutions for trap metal problems is proving to be a great success. Often customers do not have time to wait for equipment that may take six weeks to manufacture. The AKC Grate is taking our ProGrage range a step further, being more extensive in design and technology. This can only be beneficial for customers."
