Does your production line look like a bumpy ride? Tired of metal particles sneaking past your hump mag? Maybe it’s time to switch to a more effective option—the Dual Bullnose Magnetic Plate. In this blog, we’ll cover how these magnets help eliminate traditional hurdles, bringing a sense of stability and reliability to your manufacturing process.

Why Should I Use Dual Bullnose Magnetic Plates Over Hump Magnets?

The Dual Bullnose Plate Magnet is a game-changer in the world of separation efficiency. It takes the traditional “hump magnet” to a whole new level, and here are a few reasons why:

Increased Separation Efficiency

There’s no way around it, the Dual Bullnose Magnetic Plate is the superior performer in terms of separation efficiency. Positioned in a vertical product flow, the Dual Bullnose design employs two powerful, fully-adjustable Bullnose Plate Magnets, along with a powerful, large-diameter magnetic splitter-bar positioned in the center of the product flow to direct the product towards the magnets on either side. This, combined with the following qualities, delivers an unmatched level of foreign metal fragment control:

  • HD Hinged Door Latches &Gas Springs, for easy open/close access doors.
  • Magnet Positioning Mechanism: Allows for maximum separation efficiency without blockage.
  • RE80® Technology: For industry-leading magnet strength retention over time.
  • Dura-Slik® Abrasion-Reduction Technology available: The Dual Bullnose Plate Magnets can also be supplied with Dura-Slik® Abrasion-Reduction Technology to help reduce wear in abrasive applications and increase flowability of hydroscopic or sticky material or powders.
  • High-Intensity Magnets certified to 11,000+ gauss

The unit can be supplied with a single or dual magnetic plate, depending on whether your application is a straight gravity drop or a sloping chute.

Easy to Maintain

Inside the global permanent magnets market, there’s two common pain points: constant maintenance and strength retention. Luckily, with Dual Bullnose Magnetic Plates, you don’t have to worry about either. Because these plates are mounted inside hinged doors, this helps facilitate easy accessibility, quicker inspections, and more effective cleaning measures. Moreover, these units are fully adjustable, which enables you to set the magnets in the most ideal position to maximize separation efficiency—all without blocking product flow. The RE80® magnet elements retain their strength for a long time, making them an excellent investment for foreign metal fragment control and food safety.

Post-Install Adjustability

With both the single and dual plate capabilities, you’re able to fine-tune the position of the one or two bullnose plate magnets to achieve maximum separation efficiency, whilst allowing flowability in incline applications or choke-fed and high-volume gravity flow applications.

Stronger Fragment Retention Control

With the dual design also come better product-to-magnet contact points. In fact, Dual Bullnose Magnetic Plates have a greater ability to collect and retain metal than their hump mag counterparts. This is due to the design including a splitter bar, as it not only provides magnetic separation in the center of the product flow, but also splits and directs the flow of product toward the two Bullnose Plate Magnets on each side. Combined, all three of these magnets perform exceptionally well once it’s time to pull foreign metals out of both choke-fed and/or high-volume gravity flow applications.

With a minimum 10,000-11,000 gauss on both the center splitter bar and the side plates, you get access to an unmatched level of strength. Even better? Magnattack® is a trusted provider of Dual Bullnose Plate Magnets.

More Effective Retention Zones

With strong fragment retention zones at all points, the Bullnose Plate Magnet is unrivaled in its ability to separate not only the large and damaging tramp metal, but also to collect AND retain the small and weakly-magnetic fragments. These large retention zones allow the force of the product flow to push the metal fragments directly to the safe-zone, where they are safely retained until cleaning.
