Tried-and-tested machines are available for diverse applications ranging from sorting scrap material and waste to mining applications. We offer a large selection of pulley, drum, lift-out and overhead suspension magnets for both dry and wet processing.
If a tight installation space requires a compact machine, then our combination separators with several magnetic sorting stages are the ideal solution. For example, the STEINERT FinesMaster directly combines two serial magnetic separators with one eddy current separator, producing an incredibly efficient and compact machine solution.
reliably removing foreign particles from products and processes: gea extends aseptomag magnetic separator portfolio
With its Aseptomag magnetic separator portfolio, GEA supports its customers in the food, pharmaceutical and chemical industries in achieving three goals: improving product quality, preventing plant from damage and increasing plant availability.
Plant engineers and food producers from a wide range of applications are only too familiar with this problem: foreign magnetic particles in the production process. Typical sources of these are, for example, ferric products such as cocoa or debris in raw materials such as fruits and vegetables. For instance, the market offers chocolate with up to 3 milligrams of iron per 100 grams - especially dark chocolate. Metallic residues at fruits and vegetables are often caused by abrasions from steel tools used during harvest or by steel components on packaging, such as metallic retaining clips.
Magnetic separators prevent downstream production machines from damage by efficiently separating foreign particles. The magnetic separators remove metallic contaminants, thus preventequipment from damage and consequently reduce the risk of production downtimes.
Similar to the basic version MAS B, also the new switchable type MAS H is cleaned "out-of-place". For this purpose the magnetic unit is removed from the housing for manual cleaning. In contrast to the type MAS B with a constant magnetic field, with the new type MAS H the magnetic field can be deactivated by a hand lever, so that the magnetic force on the rods is cancelled and the accumulated particles are released by themselves. A patented locking mechanism ensures that the magnetic force can only be released after the unit has been removed from the housing and that the magnetic bars are again positioned in the product area when reassembling the unit.
The new type MAS PA can be fully integrated into automated processes. The basic prerequisites for this are standardized CIP processes and a bypass valve for the removal of foreign particles. Via a pneumatic actuator the magnets are removed from the product area without further manual intervention, whereby the accumulated particles are automatically released from the bars and discharged into the product area.
As a leading supplier of component solutions for the food and pharmaceutical industries, GEA pays great attention to hygienic design requirements and strict compliance with relevant standards regarding the use of materials in contact with food, such as FDA 21 CFR 177.2600 and EC 1935/2004.

The MAGNATTACK RE80 equipment range is certified by HACCP International and fully conforms to the International Food Safety Standard 0909MAGSEP 1-2010 Final Magnetic Separation Devices for Removing Ferromagnetic and Weakly Ferromagnetic Particles from Food Product Streams. Selected models have been US Department of Agriculture (USDA) Dairy Accepted.
MAGNATTACK Globals research and development (R&D) into magnetic separation equipment has led to the creation of its RE80 and RE80HT elements. These high-strength elements provide proven higher gauss strength and retention efficiency and are included in every piece of MAGNATTACK equipment.
The recent release of the MAGNATTACK DURA-SLIK anti-abrasion technology has proven effective in reducing rapid wear and damage to magnetic separation equipment. This type of wear is especially a concern in abrasive and sticky products such as grain, sugar, lactose, coffee, rice, meat meal, dry pet food and other similar foods.
The range of MAGNATTACK metal separation solutions includes the MAG-RAM self-cleaning grate magnet, RAPIDCLEAN grates in housing, magnets for gravity, blowline or vacuum installations, magnets for liquid and beverage lines, magnets for pet food and meat emulsion, magnets for milling, and winery magnets.
Since the manufacture of MAGNATTACK Globals MAG-RAM Automatic Self-Cleaning Magnet in 2008, this piece of equipment has been implemented across a wide variety of applications from meat and pet food to flour, dairy products and sensitive powders.
The self-cleaning feature is designed for hard-to-reach locations where it can be potentially dangerous for operators to clean. It also allows for reduced operator error and increased consistency for product lines that need constant cleaning.
MAGNATTACK Global provides a consistently high level of support throughout the quoting, manufacturing and magnet-operating stages. On-site training and assistance is available through MAGNATTACK Globals sales engineers and technicians, as well as through its qualified service agents in New Zealand and North America.

The MagnattackRE80 liquid-pressure pipeline magnetsare designed to efficiently extract magnetic fragments, work hardened stainless steel fragments and stone particles in both viscous and non-viscous liquid food products.
TheRapidclean grate magnetwas originally designed by the Magnattack research and development (R&D) team to overcome disadvantages experienced by existing conventional grate magnet technology in the food industry, including stainless-steel magnet sleeves, safety issues and cleaning difficulties.
The aerodynamically designed Magnattack Spherical Pneumatic Transfer Magnet provides a unique solution to the often-difficult task of separating metal fragments from high-velocity pneumatic transfers.
In the past, stainless steel sleeves on the outside of magnet grates, drawers and cartridges were commonly used by the food industry. Today, while still utilised in some food processing operations, many industry professionals do not perceive them as being as sanitary or as effective as other grate magnet designs, despite their easy-cleaning operation.
One of the largest risks to profitability in winemaking is damage to expensive processing equipment. Metal contaminants such as wire and vine fencing staples, and small-medium sized tools such as hammers and brackets, enter the grape receivals area and cause significant damage to downstream equipment.
MAGNATTACK has announced that one of its North American distributors Powder Process-Solutions (PSI) will be attending the GEAPS EXCHANGE, exhibiting a range ofMAGNATTACK's metal fragment control solutions.
Magnets play an important role in the security of finished products and should be included in every food safety programme to assist with removing the physical hazard of magnetic metal fragments from product streams.
MAGNATTACK's RE80 magnetic separators received US Department of Agriculture (USDA) acceptance in September 2015, proving sanitary standards compliance and suitability for sensitive and hygienic applications.
