Cost effective fluid clarification for removing ferrous material.

Remove ferrous material, including sludge and chips, from both water soluble and neat oils with high intensity ferrite or rare earth magnets. Typical applications include centerless and heavy stock removal grinding machines, honing, and gear cutting machinery.

PRAB’s line of magnetic separators employ high-intensity ferrite or rare earth magnets within a fully energized rotating drum to continuously remove ferrous particles from the flow of liquid. These systems are often used as a pre-filter to limit contaminants reaching subsequent filtration equipment.

Magnetic separators are well suited to processes where ferrous and non-ferrous contaminants are mixed with water-based coolants or straight cutting oils. They can also be used to enhance chip processing tasks and help you get the most out of your industrial filtration equipment.

Magnetic separators employ high-intensity ferrite or rare earth magnets within a fully energized rotating drum to continuously remove ferrous particles from the flow of liquid. These systems are often used as a pre-filter to limit contaminants reaching subsequent industrial filtration equipment. PRAB offers 4 models depending on your application needs including MCA, MCJ, SS, and MSK.

Ferrite Magnet Models:

  • The MCA product line features ferrite magnets with 1,200 gauss rating
  • The MCJ product line features ferrite magnets with 1,600 gauss rating
  • MCA and MCJ units remove up to 97% of all ferrous particulate in excess of 40-micron

Rare Earth Magnet Models:

Rare earth models are used when there are large amounts of ferrous fines (smaller than 40 micron), large amounts of sludge accumulation in a machine’s coolant tank, or when the coolant has a high viscosity rating such as straight oil.

  • The SS product line utilizes Rare Earth Magnets rated at 3,600 gauss, which are 10X stronger than ferrite magnets
  • The MSK product line utilizes Rare Earth Magnets rated at 4,200 gauss, which are 12X stronger than ferrite magnets
  • SS and MSK units remove up to 97% of all ferrous particulate in excess of 15-micron

Magnetic separators employ high-intensity ferrite or rare earth magnets within a fully energized rotating drum to continuously remove ferrous particles from the flow of liquid. This scrap metal equipment is often used as a pre-filter to limit contaminants reaching subsequent filtration equipment and are well suited to processes where ferrous and non-ferrous contaminants are mixed with water-based coolants or straight cutting oils.
