  3. Magnetic Food Processing Round-up

    Magnetic Food Processing Round-up
    Magnetic separation practices are becoming more and more common in the food processing industry, and not only for food and beverages that humans consume. Properly implemented, magnets can save people and animals from ingesting scrap metal or metal dust, which can lead to painful, potentially deadly situations. Naturally, they also keep operational costs down for owners, too. Not only does it cost money to treat a sick animal (let alone a human), but it costs money to fix broken machinery impacted by metal scrap, and not to mention lawsuits.  Continue reading →

In fact, warehouses are some of the most important and technologically advanced workspaces thanks to computer programs used to classify and run inventory, barcodes and readers that allow for instant product location, and rare earth magnets. Not only are magnets used in the process of labeling and inventory, but they also play a pivotal role in warehouse security.  Continue reading →

  6. Military Removal of Landmines with Magnetic Rakes

    Military Removal of Landmines with Magnetic Rakes
    What exactly is a land mine? Well, this refers to a dangerous explosive device that is generally concealed underground, perhaps several feet below the surface or covered by a thin layer of dirt, sand, or vegetation. The military, in this country and many others, has historically used these weapons as a way to quickly disable or destroy enemy tanks and other vehicles. They might be detonated by way of pressure, movement, sound, magnetism, or vibration. Either way, the blast effect can be devastating. Continue reading →

  10. Magnetic Chute Separators Used in Animal Feeding

    Magnetic Chute Separators Used in Animal Feeding
    If you work in agriculture or livestock, then you’re probably familiar with an animal feed chute. For those not in the field, a feed chute is what you would use to push high volumes of dry animal feed product into an enclosure or holding pen. The food would be fed (no pun intended) directly into the chute to flow down vertically due to gravity. Sounds simple, right? Dry feed plus gravity equals happy animals? Not so fast. You wouldn’t want to forget about magnets! Continue reading →
