Bullnose Plate Magnet

Effective, High-Intensity Plate Magnet System

The Bullnose Plate Magnet takes the conventional “hump-magnet” to a whole new level of separation efficiency. The Bullnose Plate Magnet Unit can be supplied with a single or dual plate, depending on whether the application is a straight gravity drop or a sloping chute.

The Single Bullnose Plate is designed to be positioned on the underside of an enclosed sloping chute, while the Dual Bullnose design employs two powerful Bullnose Plate Magnets, positioned on each side of a vertical product flow, along with a powerful magnetic splitter-bar positioned in the center of the product flow to direct the product towards the magnets on either side.

The Bullnose plate magnets are mounted inside hinged doors for easy accessibility, inspection, and cleaning. These units are fully adjustable, which enables you to set the magnets in the most ideal position to maximize separation efficiency, without blocking product flow.

The Power of Comparison

The Bullnose Plate magnet design provides significant advantages vs. conventional hump-magnet designs

Post-install adjustability. Both the Single and Dual Bullnose Plate magnet designs allow you 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.

The dual design provides 3X product-to-magnet contact points. The magnetic splitter bar not only provides magnetic separation in the center of flow, but also serves as a splitter bar to direct the flow of product toward the two bullnose plate magnets on the side. These 3x magnets combined, provide a phenomenal ability to pull foreign metals out of choke-fed and/or high-volume gravity flow applications.

High-strength magnetic force for greater metal fragment retention. Minimum 10,000-11,000 gauss on both the center Splitter Bar Magnet as well as the side Bullnose Plate magnets.

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.

Simple, but effective…

  • Simple but safe access allows for fast and effective cleaning of magnets
  • Outstanding ability to retain collected weakly magnetic fragments without them being “washed off” by flow of product
  • Ability to fully inspect magnets before they are returned to product flow – essential for reducing recontamination risks and maintaining magnetic separation
  • Withstands cleaning temperatures of up to 150°C/302°F
  • Ability to adjust product stream coverage to MAXIMIZE separation efficiency WITHOUT BLOCKAGE

We finally got the window to install the magnet and all is well. The quality of your product is first rate in my opinion, and I thank you for all your support during the application selection and purchase process.

"17 years ago, MAGNATTACK™ supplied us with one of their Spherical Pneumatic transfer magnets. After all this time, the magnet is still > 10,000 gauss, similar strength to what it was on supply. We test the magnet strength on a regular basis to ensure it is performing at the design level to ensure we maintain the highest level of Food Safety. Having worked with the team at MAGNATTACK many times, I find MAGNATTACK™ to be a very helpful, responsive organisation, which has provided a professional, high level of personal service when needed, along with providing practical solutions specific to our need for metal fragment control. I have no hesitation in recommending MAGNATTACK™ to my counterparts within Aryzta or within the food industry.”

“We discovered the Mag-Ram after looking at ways to remove metal from meals and to assure our pet food customers that the meals were of highest quality. When we looked around at all the options we found that the Mag-Ram was the best because it is self-cleaning and it saves operators time and it gives us the assurance that we’re not sending metal to our customers. One of the benefits of this system is that we’ve got peace of mind of knowing that our products going to pet food and agriculture are not going to be facing claims from metal and problems we send the customer. The business is too valuable to risk sending a problem to the other side of the world and then trying to sort the problems out later. It is better to make sure the problems don’t leave our premises.”

"Our company is committed to quality. When we required less magnetic stone fragments in our grain, we needed more gauss than can currently be obtained with a rare earth magnetic drum. We found a solution that exceeded our expectations by installing a Mag-Ram Self-Cleaning Magnetic Separator. With the 10,000 gauss magnets, a great deal more magnetic stone and magnetic rock dust is extracted. We are very impressed with this installation and the high level of expertise and service from the manufacturer, Magnattack™ Global. Highly recommended quality.”

“We use the Liquid Pressure Pipeline Separator in our meet processing plant. We are very pleased with them... three things: Number 1. THEY WORK. We had some paddles that got smashed that were impregnated with metal. When we gathered all the broken pieces and put them together, your separator captured 100% of the fragments...that's never happened before! Number 2. EASY TO CLEAN, and - Number 3. EASY TO HANDLE - the operators love them!”

“Our The Mag-Stride Magnetic Mat is great - we are catching some fine shavings and metal fragments, it also makes for a great talking point whenever we have visitors or auditors come through - overall, we are impressed and pleased with our purchase, Thank you again!”

"We have been working with MAGNATTACK™ for the past decade and have installed multiple MAG-RAM™ self-cleaning grate magnets throughout our plants. These units have proved very useful in reducing downtime caused by damage to equipment, as well as a huge timesaver for operators cleaning magnets. The system has also enabled us to clean instream without stopping the process to clean the magnets. This method has proved more efficient to other magnetic separators because a clean magnet is constantly being presented to the products being processed. This is a highly effective innovation, recommended for bulk material processing."

"Since 2004 Magnattack Global has provided us with solutions to metal fragment control in both supply of equipment and yearly magnet validations. Magnattack is a source of exceptional quality separation systems and manufactured innovative answers to metal fragment control. In 2006 Magnattack adapted a MAG-RAM™ Self-Cleaning Magnet System to a difficult location above our SAPAC Machine. This has provided the separation qualities required and the assurance that a clean magnet is presented to the product with regular cleaning cycles. The most innovative function of this unit is its ability to clean one ram at a time providing good coverage of product to magnet during its cleaning cycle. Magnattack over the years has also provided magnet solutions for our pneumatic transfer lines, gravity powder lines and liquid lines. We are very impressed with MAGNATTACK"s high level of expertise, on-site presence and service to the dairy industry, and would have no hesitation in recommending their innovative magnetic separator solutions for sanitary dairy applications.”

"We experienced customer issues with metal including drenching capsule spring pieces. MAGNATTACK™ Global assisted us and came up with the MAG-RAM™ system which allowed us to remove these metal contaminants and I have no hesitation in recommending this equipment to the rendering industry. It has been a great investment which has undoubtedly proved its worth over three years. There has been negligible maintenance. I must say the MAG-RAM™ Self-Cleaning Separator has given us assurance that we have a safer, much cleaner and more valuable product than before. Highly recommended innovation!"
