Bunting: Grate Magnets for Hoppers
Bunting grate magnets excel at removing ferrous fines, metal fragments and larger metal objects from regrind and virgin materials. Grates can be installed or simply laid inside hoppers, pits, chutes, housings and bins, where they can be accessed for cleaning.
Our general purpose grate magnets use 1” round cartridges, and are easy to access and remove for cleaning. They are available in round, square, and rectangular arrays with standard sizes ranging from 4 to 36 inches. These magnets easily fit into a variety of applications, coming standard with 304 stainless steel.
If you are flowing exceptionally difficult material in your facility, Bunting offers the TurboGrate system, designed to remove ferrous metals from powder and granular material with the most difficult flow characteristics. The TurboGrate is available in two standard sizes, allowing for up to 12” spouting, but this product can easily be custom designed to fit your exact installation requirements. It also offers a self-cleaning option to help minimize downtime in your operations.
Bunting also offers torpedo magnets, which are designed for use in Just-In-Time (JIT) hopper loaders. The torpedo’s high-energy rare earth magnetic cartridge is suspended in the center of the JIT loader’s glass tube. Tramp metal is captured before it can reach your plastic molding machine. The bottom of the torpedo magnet is a live magnetic pole that allows tramp metal to collect, preventing wipe-off into the product stream.
