GEA Aseptomag MAS PA and MAS H magnetic separators

Friday, 29 May, 2020 | Supplied by: GEA Australia

GEA has expanded its Aseptomag magnetic separator range, with the manually switchable MAS H version, featuring a patented locking mechanism, and a pneumatically switchable MAS PA version for cleaning-in-place (CIP) processes. GEA’s Aseptomag magnetic separators enable customers in the food, pharmaceutical and chemical industries to improve product quality, prevent plant from damage and increase plant availability.

Magnetic separators prevent downstream production machines from damage by efficiently separating foreign particles. The magnetic separators remove metallic contaminants from products, thus preventing equipment damage and reducing the risk of production downtimes. Much like the basic version MAS B, the switchable type MAS H is cleaned ‘out-of-place’. For this purpose the magnetic unit is removed from the housing for manual cleaning.

While the MAS B features a constant magnetic field, the MAS H magnetic field can be deactivated by a hand lever, so that the magnetic force on the rods is cancelled and the accumulated particles are released by themselves. A patented locking mechanism is designed to ensure that the magnetic force can only be released after the unit has been removed from the housing, and that the magnetic bars are again positioned in the product area when reassembling the unit.

The MAS PA can be fully integrated into automated processes. Prerequisites for this include standardised CIP processes and a bypass valve for the removal of foreign particles. A pneumatic actuator removes the magnetic debris from the product area without manual intervention; the accumulated particles are then automatically released from the bars and discharged into the product area.
