New Eriez Brochure Highlights Revolutionary P-Rex Scrap Drum

Press release date: August 18, 2014

Erie, PA– Eriez announces the release a new brochure spotlighting the innovative Permanent Rare Earth Xtreme Drum Magnet, P-Rex. The literature is now available for immediate download from the company’s website.

The four-page piece explains that P-Rex is a historic breakthrough in ferrous separation. P-Rex’s powerful permanent magnetic circuit, designed using sophisticated modeling techniques, is up to 40 percent stronger than standard electromagnets and capable of moving large spherical objects at twice the distance.

The brochure details P-Rex’s superior ability to reach into shredded material and easily extract heavy spherical ferrous items, which are often referred to as “meatballs” or “knuckles.” It also cover the many other advantages P-Rex offers over electromagnetic drums, including its wider pick up zone, edge-to-edge performance, consistent strength profile and more.

The P-Rex literature includes an array of application photos as well as helpful charts and graphs which offer a straightforward comparison of P-Rex Permanent Scrap Drum Magnets versus standard electromagnet designs. Additionally, the P-Rex brochure showcases the optional Traction Plate™ Drum Wrap, which significantly improves cleaning action by gripping ferrous, allowing it to agitate on the face of the drum to release fluff and dirt.
