There is a large variety of magnetic separators on the market, but if you specialise in production where you work with liquid mixtures and other liquids, you should get an MF magnetic separator; in other words, a flow separator in the form of a magnetic filter with manual cleaning. These are the best and most popular for this type of production.

The liquid medium to be separated is either pushed through the separator by pressure in a pipeline, or the medium flows through the separator, free flowing without pressure. This type of separator can be installed in either the vertical or horizontal position of the flow pipeline. Our company uses sealed magnetic cores in the cover tubes, which guarantee they are protected against the negative effects of aggressive environments.

These separators are typically found in industries such as machinery, ceramic, chemical, and food processing. Food industry – liquid products and semi-products.

Last but not least, it depends on the purpose for which you want to use the flow separator. It may be used to prevent ferromagnetic particles from damaging the production technology. In this case, the separator is placed during media processing, upstream of the process units that need to be protected. It may be used to ensure the purity of the final product. In this case, the separator is placed at the very end, but it is also usually placed at several points during the production process.

MF separators are made of 1.4301 stainless steel as standard. Our company is also able to produce separators for acidic or aggressive environments, from 1.4404 or 1.4571 materials, according to the customer’s needs.

Principle of cleaning the MF magnetic separator manually

The separator consists of a body, components and connecting elements. The body is shaped like a pipe and is firmly attached to the pipeline by means of connecting elements. The actual separation takes place in the separator’s body. Its size reflects many factors that are specific to the production in which the separator will be used. It must be ensured that there is no reduction in the flow rate of the separated medium or change in the operating conditions.

Are separators really worth using? Definitely yes, here’s why.

  • An unnamed wheel bearing company used an automatic flow separator. This machine extended the life of the machining emulsion by a full 32%.
  • The automatic flow separator in a company producing springs removed 3 kilograms of iron particles in 4 days (0.75 kg per day) and completely cleaned the pipeline.
  • In a specific application in the automotive industry, a manual magnetic separator in machinery production removes 800 g of iron particles in 12 hours.
