The new Bunting self-cleaning plate housing magnet incorporates powerful rare earth magnets to reliably and consistently remove metal from flow-resistant materials. It is a great solution for free-flowing materials as well, particularly many abrasive products. The design of the self-cleaning plate housing magnet makes it particularly applicable to hard-to-flow products with high moisture, oil or fat content. Because the new magnets are automatically self-cleaning, they can be equipped with control packages and installed in hard-to-reach locations where access may be difficult. It is ideal for the grain and milling industries, as well as many other industries with dry material processes.
