    How Businesses Use Carabiner Hook Magnets
    When people think about carabiners, they typically think of the steel and aluminum accessories used in rope-intensive adventure sports like rock climbing, repelling, spelunking, and sailing. But carabiners –– specifically magnetic carabiner hooks –– can also be used more practically in a variety of businesses like restaurants, construction, and window washing.  Carabiner Magnets in Restaurants A restaurant, or more specifically, a...
  2. Essentials of Arc Magnets

    Essentials of Arc Magnets
    With so many different types of magnets available, it’s good to know the differences between the types, and what they can all be used for. When looking at arc magnets, many think that with their curved shape, these magnets are only used by specialists. However, they’re actually one of the most commonly used types of magnets. Below, we're covering arc...

    Magnets and Automation in the Face of Social Distancing
    The world is currently facing a pandemic and people are being encouraged to practice social distancing for the foreseeable future. The amount of recommended time for this kind of practice is unknown –– some hypothesizing weeks and others predicting months.  The truth is, even after COVID-19 is under control, it will have a lasting impact on our businesses, but I’m...
  7. Mobile Hall Sensor Array for Detecting Ferrous Objects In Floors, Walls, and Pipelines

    Mobile Hall Sensor Array for Detecting Ferrous Objects In Floors, Walls, and Pipelines
    Sometimes, in the construction and use of pipelines, or during the construction/tear-down of buildings, you may need to detect and remove some unknown ferrous object from inside pipes, behind walls, and under flooring. To safely detect the position of an object, you can use a Mobile Hall Sensor Array.  The main benefit of this method is that it’s considered a non-destructive evaluation (NDE), which is exactly what it sounds like… non-destructive. You can determine your next move before making any costly demolition choices that could cause damage to your product or equipment, or even cause serious injury to employees. Continue reading →
  8. Magnets Used in Law Enforcement to Secure Underwater Evidence

    Magnets Used in Law Enforcement to Secure Underwater Evidence
    If you work in law enforcement, then you are probably well-aware that one of the most common illegal dumping grounds for guns is… underwater. Whether these guns are actual murder weapons, linked to a crime, or just purchased illegally, guns are often disposed of in lakes, rivers, streams, swamps, sewers, and wells. Using the power of magnets, law enforcement teams can bring important evidence –– the weapon in question –– to the surface, and in some cases, use it to identify a suspect and close a case.

  9. Magnetic Water Treatment (MWT): The Effect on Water Productivity

    Magnetic Water Treatment (MWT): The Effect on Water Productivity
    Every year, a massive amount of water is used, and essentially wasted, to keep the agriculture industry profitable. However, people are beginning to realize that clean water is a finite resource (more so in some countries than others), and we need to enact certain ongoing strategies to reduce our level of consumption. This practice of conservation is referred to as...
