Magnetic Separators Aseptomag® MAS B

Magnetic separators of the type MAS B are the simplest form of a component which extracts magnetic particles from the product and contribute to your product and process safety.

Main Components

Housings for magnetic separators are available with two ports executed with standard butt-weld connections by default. Other pipe connections are available upon request. The housing is identical for all three types (MAS B, MAS H & MAS PA) and includes an orientation point to enable ideal flow conditions inside the housing due to ideal positioning of the magnetic rods.

Magnetic Unit
The magnetic unit of the type MAS B is the base model. It contains 7 rods filled with multiple equally strong permanent magnets to create a consistent magnetic field inside the housing. The foreign particles remain at the rods and can therefore no longer harm components and machines.
The cleaning of the rods is done manually and outside the process (cleaning out of place). The permanent magnets remain inside the rods at all times, so in order to clean to rods the magnetic force must be overcome.

Due to its solid construction, the GEA Aseptomag® clamp enables a pressure stable and safe connection of the main components. The special design with three segments allows a service-friendly handling of the component, even under tight space conditions.

Areas of application

Magnetic Separators primary serve as protection of processing plants from foreign steel and other magnetic particles and consequently have a wide range of applications. The origin of foreign magnetic particles in a process varies. Typical sources are ferric products such as cacao or debris in raw materials such as fruits and vegetables.
