Eriez® Model P Grate Offers Solution for Hoppers of All Shapes

Press release date: February 12, 2008

Erie, Pa.- The Eriez® Model P Grate Magnet is a versatile, powerful magnet designed especially for odd shaped, round, oval and rectangular-cornered hoppers. The Model P Grate Magnet's functional design makes it superior protective magnetic equipment for virtually any shape hopper. When in operation, the Model P's optional deflector bars positioned over the magnetic element act as baffles to deflect the flow of material onto the magnetic tubes where iron contamination is then trapped and held. These built-in baffles control excessive speeds of material, all while maintaining a smooth, steady flow. Installation of the Model P Grate Magnet is simple. The magnetic Grate is placed in the hopper with the tier bars against the sides of the hopper. Maintenance of these non-electric permanent magnetic units entails periodically lifting the unit out of the hopper and wiping it clean of ferrous accumulations. Eriez is recognized as world authority in advanced technology for magnetic, vibratory and inspection applications. The company's magnetic separation, metal detection, x-ray, materials feeding, screening, conveying and controlling equipment have application in the process, metalworking, packaging, recycling, mining, aggregate and textile industries. Eriez manufactures and markets these products through eleven international facilities located on six continents.
