Galaxy Sivtek Launches Magnetic Belt Separator to Eliminate Ferrous Particles from Final Product

A new capacity enhancement system to remove iron particles while conveying the material in process industries.

The presence of ferrous(iron) particles in the final product such as dry food powder or pharmaceutical API & excipient is one of the major factors leading to low to bad product quality among major process industries. Hence, the optimum separation of ferrous particles from the final product is a priority to increase the quality of the final product, which itself leads to market capture by the respective brand/organization.

To eliminate the ferrous impurities from pharmaceutical and dry food products, Galaxy Sivtek Pvt. Ltd., a leading manufacturer of industrial screening & self-cleaning filter equipment, announced today, the launch of a Magnetic Separator- A Magnetic Belt to Eliminate Ferrous Impurities while Conveying the Material.

Saumil Desai, Sr. Manager-After Sales & Customer Experience, Galaxy Sivtek India, adds, The magnetic belt conveyor has nowadays become an important part of the pharmaceutical, cosmetics(FMCG), food processing, and other ferrous particle-sensitive industries. The magnetic belt conveyor works together with a magnetic pulley that is present at the conveyor discharge point. This combination is perfect to eliminate the ferrous particles from the material either before the screening & sifting operation or just before the final packaging of the raw material ingredients.

Milind Priyadarshi, Assistant Manager-After Sales, Galaxy Sivtek India, states, With a vibrating hopper, silo, or screw feeder, the material is poured on the magnetic belt conveyor. The magnetic pulley, which is made of high gauss rare earth neodymium magnets placed inside a stainless steel 304/316 shell or shaft. This magnetic pulley attracts ferrous fines from the material, while conveying, which remains attached to the belt until it reaches the underside, till the magnetic attraction is present or persists.
During the separation process, the ferrous particles get collected in a chute or bin from one side(underside) of the conveyor. The pure material is discharged from the top side of the belt conveyor in the collector bin. The working principle depends is based on the concentrated magnetic field, concludes, Milind Priyadarshi.

Product Highlights

1.) High gauss rare earth neodymium magnets-High Magnetic Field.
2.) Easy to use, deploy & clean the magnetic belt system.
3.) Minimum maintenance required.

What’s New?

Product Quality

Both the equipment have the capability to remove contaminants and prevent the recall of the products, and reputational damage. Therefore, these are widely demanded in the chemical, food, and pharmaceutical process industry.

Prevents Machinery Damage

Install them before the production process machinery and avoid any kind of damage to other machinery during the production process.

Vibrating Hopper

Vibrating Hopper is designed for transferring the materials in a unidirectional flow to the machine. Along with the vibration, it also makes use of gravity for moving the materials. Galaxy Sivtek specializes in customized design & development of vibrating hoppers/feeders. *Available on special requests.
