Everything you need to know about drawer magnets.

What is a drawer magnet?

In the processing of grain, feed, sugar, cereal, chemical, mineral, plastics, oil, textile, salt, pharmaceuticals, and recycled products, a Drawer Magnet is used to remove ferrous tramp metal contaminants from dry particulate, liquids, and slurries. This can be done in dry particulate, liquids, and slurries. Magnetic separators like this will guarantee that products are free of impurities and will prevent damage to processing equipment caused by tramp metal. Drawer magnets are usually attached at the bottom of grates or on flat surfaces, where they may move freely and gather ferrous impurities as they go through the system. Drawer magnets can be found in a broad variety of sizes and styles, allowing them to be customized to meet the requirements of each user.

How does it remove ferrous material? 

The magnetic drawer can be easily installed in an already existing pipeline or outlet of a variety of machines, such as crushing machines, blenders, and filters, as well as any other outlet point. In the standard configuration, every unit is made up of two permanent magnetic grids that are stacked one on top of the other. For certain applications, there is a system available that contains numerous grids. The grids may be removed quickly and easily for cleaning.

At one of the drawer's outlets, flanges have been installed. The magnetic rods typically include either high-intensity rare earth magnets or hard ferrite ceramic magnets, and they are housed in robust steel housing per the industry standard. If it is required, a model that has grids and housing made of stainless steel can be given. The magnetic tubes are cleaned while the metal impurities are deposited into a collection tray outside of the product stream by the non-metallic separator assembly, which is activated by the magnets, which push the magnetic tubes through the assembly. This procedure is carried out numerous times until all of the metal pollutants have been eliminated.

Why permanent magnets are used in drawer magnets?

It is necessary to use a permanent magnet to generate a magnetic field gradient across the magnetic particle solution before magnetic particles may be separated. The drawer magnets are manufactured using the highest quality magnet material, which consists of Neodymium-Iron-Boron, Samarium-Cobalt, Ceramic, and Alnico among other substances. These particular kinds of magnets have a significant pulling force.

Types of drawer magnetic separators: 

Heavy Duty

A heavy-duty drawer may support the processing of large items. The environmental temperature and humidity, bridging, abrasion, corrosion, or galling are examples of conditions that could potentially harm or influence the magnetic holding power of standard drawers. The new heavy-duty drawer technology, however, is resistant to all of these conditions. Because it has a unique coating on the tubes of the drawer, it is not susceptible to the material sticking issues that certain items are when they are subjected to processing conditions. As a result, you will find that the cleaning procedures, whether performed manually or automatically, become much simpler.

Manual Clean

Manual clean drawer magnets are the best option when there is just a little amount of tramp metal contamination, but magnets that come with an integrated scraping tool are an effective approach to getting rid of dirt and grime. The dirt trap that is located at the bottom of each Magnetic Tube helps to keep your belongings safe while also making it simple and quick for you to clean the outside of the container. To free the trapped dirt particles, all that is required is to first remove the magnetic cap, then push in, and lastly twist.

Rare earth large Tube

Rare earth magnets are the only type of magnetic tube sealer that can successfully separate even the purest, most refined powdered sugar. You may have peace of mind knowing that your jars will be properly sealed by Mag Spring's drawer magnets and that your components will be kept separate. The tubes that are supplied have been built with painstaking accuracy to ensure that they do not become clogged or cause any other problems. In addition, the pipes are more extensive than many of the others that are now available on the market, which ensures that your beverage will continue to taste fresh and be personalized.


Some individuals believe that the most effective solution in challenging environments is a magnetic drawer that can maintain its cleanliness. When operating in locations that are difficult to access, some of the tools that are used most commonly are the ones that are listed here. An additional function of this operation is the elimination of fine tramp metal or the establishment of an automated processing plant. The operator can easily clean the assembly while stationed in a separate place by using the toggle switch to control the cleaning process.

Applications of drawer magnets:

The mining industry, the medicines industry, the food processing industry, the powdered material industry, the cement and gypsum industry, and other sorts of small-scale businesses are some of the industries that use drawer magnets for their applications.

Benefits of drawer magnets: 

  • It helps drastically reduce the amount of ferrous particle bypass via the magnetic separator.
  • It is useful in removing iron content, which in turn helps to increase the life of devices.
  • It boosts productivity while simultaneously cutting down on downtime.
  • It is simple to clean, and it is a simple setup.
  • It is built with extremely potent and high-grade rare earth magnets for its construction.
