Informa Exhibitions Ltd regrets to announce the closure of Solids & Bulk Handling magazine.

Solids & Bulk Handling magazine has been affected by the ongoing downward trend of on-the-page marketing spend. This combined with the economic pressures that the loose and solids handling industry face has ultimately led to the sad and difficult decision to cease publishing the magazine.

The November/December 2017 issue of Solids & Bulk Handling will be its last edition.

New Teardrop Tube Magnet from Bunting Magnetics February 23, 2017

New Teardrop Tube Magnet from Bunting Magnetics

Tube Magnets are used extensively in the processing industry to capture magnetic susceptible foreign bodies, including screws, nuts, bolts, and small iron shards, in both dry and wet applications.  Metal Contamination causes damage to delicate processing equipment, as well as affecting the end-quality and purity of the product.  Tube Magnets are commonly used in the form of a Grate Magnet, where several Tubes form a Magnetic Separation grid.

Rare Earth Magnets are constructed out of Neodymium Iron Boron magnet slugs.  These produce the highest permanent magnetic field and are used to separate very fine iron and weakly magnetic stainless steel from solids and liquids.

Even though the Rare Earth Tube Magnet is a sphere, fine non-magnetic material often builds up on the upper-most point of the Tube.  Over time this ‘bridging’ can increase and ultimately cause a blockage.  The build-up always reduces the separation performance, increasing the likelihood of metal contamination continuing through the process.

The new Teardrop Magnet has the point of the tear orientated into the product flow.  The surface area on the point of the tear is very small and prevents fine powder collecting on the surface.  The powder then flows under gravity over the side of the Tube Magnet, with any magnetically susceptible materials attracted to the high magnetic force.  These magnetics migrate to the bottom of the Tube Magnet, where they are securely held away from the product flow.

The new Teardrop Tube Magnet is available as a single Tube or as part of a multi-Tube Grate Magnet assembly.
