Xtreme RE7 Tube Circuit
Eriez continues to lead the industry by advancing Rare Earth permanent magnet technology to the highest level ever with the company’s new and improved Xtreme RE7 Tube Circuit, which proved to be 13 to 40 percent stronger than other magnets in head-to-head pull tests.
Eriez commissioned The Pennsylvania State University (Penn State), to determine which commercial tube magnet most effectively removes dangerous ferrous metal and weakly magnetic contaminants from process flows. Thirteen tube magnets from various suppliers were stripped of brand identity and then provided to Penn State, the Behrend College, for testing.
According to conclusions noted by Penn State, the pull force of the Xtreme RE7 Tube Circuit was substantially stronger than any of the other samples. Eriez’ magnet was also among the best performers in terms of magnetic flux density.
The Eriez Xtreme RE7 magnet circuit is available in all Eriez Tubes, Grates and Liquid Line Traps used in food, plastics, pharmaceutical, mining, foundry, chemical and other applications. “The increased power of the Xtreme RE7 has a direct and positive impact on product purity and plant productivity,” says Eric Confer, Product Manager-Magnetic Separation. “Customers benefit from the increased strength of the new Xtreme RE7 products without any additional cost over our previous Rare Earth products.” It surpasses previous models and competitive units with greater holding force and improved separation efficiency. For customers in the process industries, the increased power of the Xtreme RE7 has a direct and positive impact on product purity and plant productivity.
To check magnet strength, Eriez offers Pull Test Kits. When used properly, Eriez’ Pull Test Kit helps users monitor the consistency of their magnetic separator by measuring the holding force of a magnet. “When utilizing a pull test kit, be aware these kits vary from manufacturer to manufacturer,” says Confer. “There are some pull test kits out there that include a test piece ring that is actually magnetic. This can skew the results and show a magnet to be stronger than it truly is.” He explains, “Eriez’ Pull Test Kit uses a standard non-magnetic test piece to ensure the most accurate results.”
