Magnetic Separators Aseptomag® MAS PA

Magnetic separators of the type MAS PA extract magnetic particles from the product. The pneumatic activation of the component and the integrated proximity switches for position detection enable fully automated and safe processes.

Main Components

Housing
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 PA 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 magnetic field inside the rods can be deactivated via a pneumatic actuator and the magnetic separator does not require manual disassembly for cleaning. The position of the magnet packages can be reliably detected via proximity switches and the magnetic separator can be fully integrated into standard CIP processes.

Clamp
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.

Installation recommendation MAS PA

For a safe operation it is required to install a valve after the magnetic separator which allows to drain the cleaning liquid including the separated particles before critical components and machines are reached.
