How to select a grate magnet

This article discusses how to select a grate magnet, a common magnetic separator used in dry bulk materials processing and handling operations. Sections provide in- formation about general-purpose and heavy-duty grate magnets, as well as magnetic materials and grate magnet variations.

The harm one small metal screw can cause when it falls into your process stream is disproportional to the screw's size.
