Automatic Self-Cleaning Magnet
The Most Customizable, Easiest-to-Clean Magnet on the Market!
The Mag-Ram® Self-Cleaning Magnetic Separator automatically self-cleans, requiring little to no operator intervention. The modular design enables you to customize your Mag-Ram® with any number of Magnet Rams and/or Rows. This versatile magnet helps increase the value of product and the quality of protein meal.
During the process of converting by-product into rendered protein, small metal fragments will enter the product. These physical hazards may originate from operating machinery (such as grinders) and internal drenching capsule / bolas springs. If not properly detected and removed, these contaminants can cause considerable damage for the rendering companies involved, including loss of clients, issues with product quality, financial loss, brand name damage, and product recall.
Key Features & Benefits
- Magnetic Ram – large diameter magnetic ram effectively captures and retains foreign metal fragments from the product stream.
- Contaminants Chute – foreign metal contaminants are safely separated and transported down the contaminants chute.
- Pneumatic Cylinders – each magnetic Ram is controlled individually to prevent out-of-sync jamming issues, and enables you to set up the cleaning cycle to clean one magnet at a time, or all magnets simultaneously.
- Customized Controls – choose from either a timer controller (shown here), an air toggle switch, or direct wire to PLC to achieve automatic self-cleaning with little to no operator intervention.
- Product/Process Zone – the Mag-Ram® is easily sized to suit any application based on flow rates, product characteristics, chute dimensions, and metal fragment tolerances.
- Operator Safety – enables operators to easily, quickly, and safely remove metal fragments without direct contact.
- Rotating Magnet Ram – Magnetic Ram automatically rotates to reposition every cycle to equalize abrasive wear, and extend ram life.
- Replaceable Wiper Seals – for simple and low-cost preventative maintenance.
- RE80® Magnet Technology – for industry-leading magnet strength retention over time.
- High-Intensity Magnets – certified to 11,000+ gauss.
- Dura-Slik® Abrasion-Reduction Technology – to reduce wear in abrasive applications, as well as increasing flowability of hydroscopic or sticky powders.
Power of Comparison
Mag-Ram® Self-Cleaning Magnet vs. Alternatives
The Mag-Ram® patented design permits the use of tight wiper seals for each individual magnetic ram, which ensures effective cleaning is achieved. This design allows for quick and easy preventative maintenance procedures.
Standardized components, and modular design, requires less spare parts, and less potential downtime.
Due to the absence of ‘sleeves’ (which inherently build up material and can harbor bacteria) the Mag-Ram® design is hygienic, food safe, and compliant with the HACCP International MAGSEP Standard.
In-stream or batch cleaning: the Mag-Ram® design gives you the option to clean 1 (one) magnetic Ram at a time, programmable with localized or your existing PLC controls. Removing only 1 Ram at a time is recommended as it leaves all others protecting the product during in-stream cleaning.
The working mechanism of the Ram action is fully enclosed within the cylinder to eliminate external mechanical pinch points, prevent adverse external factors such as dust and grime from reducing the mechanical efficiency, and provide a more sanitary design.
Many alternative self-cleaning, or easy-to-clean magnets utilize just two pneumatic cylinders to pull all magnetic bars through a tube scraper, or common wiper seal in order to remove the ferrous contamination from the magnetic tubes. When the timing of these pneumatic cylinders falls out of sync, it causes ‘walking’ and ‘jamming’ which in turn can cause failure to properly clean. The Mag-Ram® design eliminates this issue by incorporating a single pneumatic cylinder for each individual magnetic Ram. This patented design also provides the additional benefit of being able to clean during process, with retracting only one magnet Ram at a time, vs all of the magnets simultaneously.
Cleaning magnets every day can be difficult and time-consuming for operators. Sometimes magnets need to be placed in areas that are not easily accessible.
The Mag-Ram® self-cleaning magnet eliminates these issues, and makes it safe and easy to keep your magnets clean and efficient, automatically!
What Our Customers Say
All [Emulsion & Slurry Magnets] are still in service and the team is very happy in their performance and ease of checking them compared to our old setup.
Magnattack is terrific. Great customer service, speedy results and has someone out here quickly when we need them.
Very prompt responses, I wish more suppliers worked with this sense of urgency in this day and age!!!
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!"
