S.G. Frantz Permanent Magnet Separators
Permanent Magnet Separator Applications
Ideal for use in a wide variety of environments, our Permanent Magnet Separators have been performing successfully in the following applications for decades:
Heavy Equipment – Extracting abrasive particles worn from moving parts in engines and other oil-lubricated machinery to prevent wear and damage to bearings, gears and other moving parts
Hydraulic Systems – Installed in the suction side of hydraulic systems to remove rust, scale and fine metal wear particles, and to protect hydraulic pumps and valves from abrasion, sticking and wear
Coolant Systems – Removing fine metal particles from coolant pumps (installed before and/or after) which fail to settle out in the sump to improve the finish of the work, extend tool life and increase production
Volatile Liquids – Providing safe filtration of fuels, paints, solvents, hydrocarbons and other volatile liquids to remove contaminants (without risk in locations where there is danger of explosion)
Meters and Controls – Removing metal particles too small to be captured by edge type filters or mechanical strainers, protecting meters and controls from malfunction
Boiler and Steam Systems – Removing accumulated rust and scale to reduce contaminants (which interfere with the operation of valves) and increase the operational efficiency of boilers and pumps
Filtration Systems – Extending the life of filtration systems by removing fine contaminants that could pass through grids or overload them
Test Stands – Guarding new equipment against damage by removing fine iron and steel particles, which accumulate in the course of the machining, fabricating and assembling of its parts
Advantages of FerroFilter® Permanent Magnet Separators
Permanent Magnet Separator Specifications
All models of FerroFilter® Permanent Magnet Separators are easily opened for cleaning. The grid stack is demagnetized when it is separated from the magnets. Frequency of cleaning required depends on the application: Generally it should be from a week to a month for a FerroFilter® Permanent Magnet Separator in the lubrication system of machinery in regular service; from one to six months for a FerroFilter® Permanent Magnet Separator in a hydraulic system; at least once in each eight-hour shift for a FerroFilter® Permanent Magnet Separator cleansing coolants in drilling, boring and other machining operations; and after each run-in of new machinery.
Series PQ Permanent Magnet Separators
We offer five different permanent magnet separators, ranging from the PQ2 (approximately the size of an automobile oil filter) to the PQ6 (our largest permanent magnet separator, with a capacity 20 times that of the PQ2). Whatever your needs, S.G. Frantz® has the expertise to help you find the right separation solution. Contact us today to speak with one of our experienced and knowledgeable technicians.
